Please note: We do not make or press t-shirts for customers. We supply you with the materials to make the shirt or items yourself. You will receive a ready to press heat transfer when purchasing this item. 


Direct-to-Film Transfers (also known as DTF) is exactly what it sounds like. It is your artwork printed on a special film and transfer said film onto fabric or other textiles.  DTF transfers are full-color heat applied transfers for light and dark garments. DTF is a process that transfers prints onto fabric or other substrates using a heat-press mechanism. Unlike the DTG method, which only works on cotton fabrics, the Printer DTF method can be applied to cotton, cotton/poly blends, and even 100% polyester.

Direct-to-Film (DTF) transfers are full-color heat applied transfers for light and dark garments. No weeding or masking is required and DTF transfers can be applied to cotton, cotton/poly blends, and even 100% polyester.

Simply press and go! All you need is a heat press!


  1. Preheat the garment for 15 seconds to remove excess moisture. Let the garment cool before adding the transfer.
  2. Place the transfer on the shirt white side down, image facing up.
  3. Press at 330F for 15 seconds under very firm pressure.
  4. Remove the garment from the press and let it stand until it is warm enough to peel.
  5. Peel warm or cool.
  6. Cover the image with heat resistant sheet and press again for 15 seconds. You can also use parchment or butcher paper as well.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS: Turn the garment inside out. Machine wash cold. No bleach. No softener. Do not dry clean or iron. Tumble dry low.
