A3 DTF printing business that returns quickly

The printing machine which is currently going viral is the A3 DTF Printer, called Digital Transfer Film, which means that the working method is very simple. Why is it called very simple because by printing on Pet Film all the colors will come out or very bright and sharp, with the help of DTF powder the ink itself is stored in powder which is melted in the oven. After the image on the pet film is in the oven, the image is ready to be transferred to the t-shirt material with the help of a hotpress machine or t-shirt press machine.

DTF Printing

This DTF printer is very promising for any beginner who wants to open a unit t-shirt printing business because the benefits are really fast return on investment. Especially if the user has design skills, then that can also be used as a custom t-shirt printing business opportunity with professional design services.

The modified A3 DTF printer has its advantages

There are two types of the most well-known and most widely used DTF technology printers in Indonesia and China, namely the Desktop version of the DTF printer and the Large Format DTF Machine. Is there a difference? What are DTF Printers? DTF or Digital Transfer Film printers are printed directly on sheet material, namely printing on Pet Film which will later be transferred to t-shirts with the help of a press machine.

The difference is of course from the shape of the printer. If the desktop version of the DTF printer is usually a modified printer from a paper printer to a DTF printer, for example the Epson L1800 series DTF printer or you can also use a used printer with the Epson Stylus 1390 series, this Epson 1390 printer is no longer in production.

This A3 DTF Printer also has a striking difference from the A3 DTG Printer. If the desktop version of the DTF printer is similar to a regular printer, the difference is that the DTG printer uses a tray to place the t-shirt in the printer. The A3 DTF printer uses the Roll To Roll Module to move the Pet Film back and forth and read the programmed paper sensor from the module used. The advantage of a DTF printer is that the process is not as complicated as a DTG printer when you want to print a black t-shirt or when using white ink.

DTG Printers are the same as UV Flatbed Printers which use a Tray to place the material to be printed, while UV Roll to Roll Printers use roll or roll printing media as used in various other digital printing machines. This tool is often used to print advertisements that utilize outdoor media because of its very strong quality and resistance to sunlight.

There are also many advantages if you have a modified A3 DTF Printer, namely the printing process is not complicated and the results are dense, sharp and bright. The results on the t-shirt are also very solid and strong when put in the washing machine. T-shirts that are washed in the washing machine sometimes have faded images, but if you print t-shirts with a DTF printer, the image strength is very long-lived, but look again, what ink is used, don’t choose cheap ink, which has poor image quality and doesn’t last long. and cheap ink will also damage the Printhead.

Special Ink for A3 DTF Printers

A3 DTF printers use special ink, specifically for t-shirt printers. Its characteristics are not the same as other inks such as eco solvent or dye ink which are often used in the printing world. Ecosolven ink is usually intended for printing stickers or banners with flexi china. Now, back to the t-shirt ink used in the A3 DTF Printer, which has very bright, sharp and durable results.
