What makes the DTF PRO so cost effective?

DTF PRO has over a decade of experience manufacturing for other popular brands and distributors.

DTF PRO Evolution™ DTF printer has significant advantaged over alternative technology systems such as Toner Transfer, or even high end DTG. It is arguably the most popular textile printing technology on the market for systems under $10,000. Works for multiple fabric types including cotton, poly, blends, leathers, jeans and more, and works on both White and Dark textiles.

Benefits over Toner Transfer and DTG Technology:
  • As compared to Toner Transfer technology such as Okidata or Uninet iColor - DTF PRO offers a cheaper startup cost (~ 50% cheaper); Cheaper supplies (cheaper ink and cheaper transfer sheets); Easier RIP management; Better photographic quality prints; And better feel to the hand. DTF also prints to both WHITE or DARK textiles, and is applicable to a variety of textiles including cotton, poly and more.
  • As compared to DTG technology such as Epson, Ricoh, Brother or other DTG based systems - DTF PRO offers a cheaper startup cost (~ 50% to 75% cheaper) and NO PRETREATMENT required (less cost and less user dependency), although you will require DTF Sheets and DTF Powder (which DTG does not require). The print quality and the feel of the printed textiles is very similar to DTG. The substrates that DTF will work on are much wider than DTG (DTG is mainly for cotton, but DTF will work on cotton, poly, 50/50 blends and more).

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.

I have purchased my ink cartridges a couple different places this is second time in a row here. If it is as good as last time this will be where i shop for ink from now on.
This is my go to site for all my ink purchases. Easy to navigate and the quality of the ink is amazing. Have recommended this site to so may of my friends and family.
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!
Bought item from another company and would not work in printer so looked on net and found this company. Quick ship and works. Will buy from them from now on.
Easy and straight forward. If this ink is as good as it looks this will be my place to get my color inks also. Price was right and shipping in line.
