Directions for lights are below but you can choose to use the pretreat any of these ways you'd like. Temp depends on color of the garment but lights are usually best pressed at 325F/160C and cured at the same temp or 325F/163C for 60 seconds. If you have a temperature and time that works for you then use it! Make your life simpler.

Here's what Anthony Creek recommends:

  1. Hang dry then press 2-3 times to push fibers down 8 seconds each press.
  2. Press 3 intervals of 17 seconds each. You need to make sure that the pretreat is dry. 3 presses push all the fibers down giving the best print. You may need to increase the amount of pretreat and drying time for thicker items.
  3. Conveyor drying: Conveyor dry at 330F for 3 minutes and 2 presses of 8 second intervals depending on how much pretreat is applied.

Usually on t shirts you will need about 19 grams of pretreat and 39 for hoodies.

We strived to create a pretreat that is/does the following:

  • Conveyor Friendly
  • Decreases Pinholes
  • Knocks Down Fibers Well
  • Can Be Hang Dried
  • Works With Blended Garments
  • Enhances White Ink Opacity
  • Fewer Staining Issues Than our Previous Version
  • Works with many DTG's
  • Good Stretch
  • Concentrate Available for Cheaper Shipping Options
  • Increase in Washability
  • Great Price

This Pretreatment is a non-toxic spray that needs to be applied with a machine or mask. This pretreat is a great all in one solution to not have to switch pretreat!

Triblends, cottons and mixed cottons will work well and print well. All Direct to Garment Printers that print white ink on dark garments require some sort of garment pretreatment. Usually the pretreatment is a spray and you spray the shirt and hit it with a heat press.

This lays down all the fibers, giving you a nice, smooth garment to print. Be sure to use our Kraft paper for darks instead of parchment paper to achieve the best quality print. The pretreatment also helps ink to adhere to the garment, giving you a more vibrant final print and little or no fibrillation (small fibers sticking up out of the ink).

PRETREATMENT IS A SERIOUS PRODUCT AND SHOULD PROPER MATERIALS SUCH AS GOGGLES AND MASKS SHOULD BE WORN AT ALL TIMES WHEN APPLYING. IT IS NON TOXIC BUT CAN BE TOXIC TO THE BODY IF INHALED. REMEMBER THAT PRETREATMENT IS GLUE, YOU BREATHE IN GLUE AND YOUR BODY WILL REACT TO THIS NEGATIVELY OVER TIME.


WARNING: WORK IN A WELL VENTILATED AREA and use Protective Equipment when working with DTF products and processes as fumes may be hazardous. DTF inks and film require a good humidity environment - over 40% humidity is highly recommended to minimize risk of ink clogs and film buckling.

It was all a smooth interaction - from selecting the correct replacement toner cartridge for my printer (plenty of selections; all from which were for the correct product.) to the plain pricing and check out was a breeze!
