Prestige DTF Printers

DTF (Direct-to-film) technology is a modern version of an old technology that uses a special ink which is printed onto a film. White ink is printed on top of the colour inks. This becomes the base colour when the image is transferred onto fabric and is the reason this technology works so well on dark fabrics. When the print comes out of the printer it’s still wet and a powder is sprinkled onto the wet ink. This powder is the glue that adheres the print to the fabric. After this, it’s cured and is then pressed with a heat press onto the fabric item.

Who Should Look At DTF?

Anyone who has a demand for printed shirts or other fabrics on a regular basis and who needs
excellent quality coupled with low print cost and excellent washability.

There is no other process that can produce this quality at this price that lasts as long.

This process is so revolutionary that even companies traditionally only doing silkscreen printing (which has been the standard for wash durability for decades) are starting to move to DTF for their full-colour work. Even companies using heat transfer vinyl primarily are moving to DTF because the cost saving is huge with zero weeding of unwanted areas.

Is DTF Only For Fabric Items?

For fabric and other porous substrates only. It will not work on metal, glass, ceramics and so on.

The Prestige R2 Pro DTF (Direct-to-Film) Printer is a specialised printing machine designed for high-quality, versatile textile printing. It's an industrial production machine manufactured specifically for DTF, featuring dual Epson I1600 industrial-grade print heads. Compact yet powerful, this desktop printer represents the latest A3 solution in DTF printing, offering increased reliability, lower print costs, and higher print speeds.

  • Motherboard:  Hoson.
  • Printer Head:  Dual Epson I1600 industrial-grade print heads for maximum longevity. These I1600 heads are 10 times faster than converted Epson heads and produce much better colors.

This technology ensures smooth, uninterrupted printing by maintaining optimal print head height and alignment, reducing the risk of damage to both the print head and the substrate. As a result, it enhances print quality, prolongs the life of the print head, and minimizes downtime and maintenance costs.

The most popular low-end systems use a modified Epson printer with the addition of control circuitry, ink pumps, circulation pumps and so on. These low-end units are generally found for home use but for production environments, dual-head A3 and A2 units are best. For one thing, they are more reliable as well as much faster (in a production environment you can’t spend 10-15 minutes waiting for an A3 print).
