Two Different ways to laminate films


UV DTF printers, on the other hand, print the logos/patterns/stickers (or crystal stickers) on the A film first. The patterns on A film will be laminated to B film using a laminator (and adhesive) (transfer film). After you’ve completed the preceding steps, press the transfer film against the item you want to transfer to for a second, then tear it off and finish transferring.

UV DTF Printer: Press with fingers. UV DTF printing necessitates the above-mentioned laminating technique. After that, all you have to do is press and tear out B film with your fingers to complete the transfer.

Two Different Ways to Peel off

DTF Printer: Press with heat press machine. To transfer your design on fabric or other substrates, DTF printers require hot-melt adhesive powder and a heat press machine. DTF printers are also better at printing on textiles and leather. While DTF printers are only to print patterns on the PET films, they don’t need to prepare the two kind of films.

Different Applications of Two Machines

DTF printing can transfer any kind of image including artwork, photographs, logos, designs, and more to fabric, which is not only limited to apparel.
