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've been coming to this site for several years. It's the only place I buy toner. The website is simple, you know the compatible toners, the prices are very good, the website is great because there's not a lot of advertising. No frills, just business, which makes me respect the company even more.
The website is well designed, making it easy to find what I wanted and order it. I would have spent less than the 3 minutes I did had I not clicked on another product to see what, exactly, it was.
Product was easy to order and I received the product on time. Order tracking was also easy & was very accurate. Excellent experience & would recommend using Refill Bay for all your printer ink needs.
The order surprised me with how fast it arrived. Within 3 days it had arrived, very fast service, especially for a company based in California and I live on the east coast. All Products arrived in perfect condition with nothing missing. I will definitely remember to use them the next time.
I easily found the items I needed on the website. They were received on time. They were well-packaged and protected . Thank you. I will recommend you products to others I know. I am very well pleased.
