Developed in partnership with Mutoh, STS Inks has launched a breakthrough in direct-to-film (DTF) printing with a new hassle-free compact modular system. The centre piece of the new system is a compact printer that measures 60.96 cm and is built to fit onto a tabletop or rolling stand in any print shop size. The exclusive STS Inks DTF System is designed to be the most cost-effective and hassle-free solution to simplify the process of quickly creating custom T-shirts and apparel. DTF has several advantages over traditional direct-to-garment (DTG) technology, which is limited to cotton pre-treated fabrics and wears faster.
DTF is capable of printing onto non-treated cotton, silk, polyester, denim, nylon, leather, 50/50 blends and more. It works equally well on white and dark textiles and allows users to choose either a matte or glossy finish. DTF does not require cutting or weeding, creates crisp and defined edges and images, does not require advanced technical printing knowledge, and produces less waste. STS developed its DTF packages and programms to be a hassle-free alternative to what previously has been available in the marketplace. The STS Inks DTF System simplifies traditional DTF processes and supply procurement. It begins with using the STS VJ-628D printer to print logos and/or artwork onto a single-sided coated PET Film.
