Polyprint introduces film transfers

Polyprint has announced a new direct to film textile option for use with its TexJet DtG printers called DTF Xpress, that allows users to produce textile transfers to avoid the need to pretreat DtG garments.

Polyprint’s Direct to film XPress allows film transfers to be printed and applied to fabrics.

Essentially the TexJet can be used to print a design to a film, which is then transferred onto a garment using an adhesive powder and a heat press. There’s no need to change the ink and the DTF transfers can be printed several types of fabric including dark or light polyester and nylon. It’s suitable for a range of applications such as personalized t-shirts and bags and can allow small logos to be applied in specific places such as sleeves and pockets.

The solution consists of the DTF Xpress Transfer Film, Adhesive Powder and a reusable Antislip Pad to keep the film flat and steady during printing. It can be used with any TexJet DTG printer that’s running Cadlink Digital Factory Apparel V.10 Polyprint Edition. There’s also a free update to this RIP, which adds the DTF Xpress RIP Print Modes.

George Benglopoulos, Polyprint’s CEO, commented: “The DTF Xpress solution we provide, helps our existing customers grow without the need to invest in new equipment. DTF is a fairly simple process that can easily be adopted by existing TexJet DTG users. It, essentially, complements DTG printing by producing fantastic prints on numerous textiles, without the need to pretreat.”
