While constantly improving the quality of our DTF printers, we, like our customers, are also looking for the most suitable transfer printing method. We have launched UV DTF printers for hard materials, and DTF printers for apparel fabrics. Although it has covered most of the items in our lives, it is undeniable that DTG (direct to garment) printing is still the best way to print on pure cotton fabrics. Why Choose Sublistar DTG Printer? Let me introduce the advantages and features of our Sublistar DTG printers!
1. Advantages of the Sublistar DTG Printer
1)The machine is similar in function and structure concept to the Japanese Brother machine.
2)The machine has automatic wake-up function and automatic maintenance under standby conditions;
3)Timed circulation system, automatic height detection function, to prevent scratching the print head;
4)Negative pressure ink supply system to maintain stable ink supply and reduce the frequency of clogging;
5)Machine start-up cleaning mode: In order to ensure the good state of the print head, Brother machine has set the default value. When the machine is turned on, regardless of whether the print head is in good condition, the ink consumption is a fixed mode, which increases the ink consumption invisibly. The cost of using ink is increased; the cleaning mode of our machine is different. Choose to clean on demand according to the actual situation of the nozzle. This mode can save ink consumption.
6)Platform lifting, in order to increase the lifting stroke of the platform and better adjust the printing range, especially the platform gasket that is the same as the Brother machine is added, so that it can have a better choice.

What’s The Difference Between DTF and DTG Printer?
DTF means direct to film printing, its an alternative printing process to DTG printer.
As we as a whole realize that DTG is direct to garment printer,which is reasonable for cotton textures printing,such as cotton T-shirt, POLO shirt printing. Furthermore DTF printer is appropriate for all non-textures printing,such as polyester, caps printing,shoes printing,canvas printing.
The DTF material printing ink application is that the ink is imprinted on the hotness move film, and afterward a layer of hot liquefy powder is sprinkled on the outer layer of the hotness move film, and afterward the shading is created by squeezing; while the DTG ink application is directly imprinted on the texture.
1. DTG Printing
It requires pre-treatment: For DTG, the cycle begins with the pre-treatment of the garment. This progression is important prior to printing since we will be working directly on the texture, which will permit the ink to hold well and try not to move it to the texture. Also, we want to warm the garment prior to printing to enact this treatment.
Print directly onto the garment: With DTG, you can print directly onto the garment, so the interaction can be more limited than DTF and you don’t have to move.
Imprinting on cotton: With this sort of printing, we can print on cotton garments.
No pre-treatment: In DTF printing, there is no compelling reason to pre-treat the texture since it is pre-imprinted on the film and should be moved.
Any sort of texture: One of the upsides of DTF is that it permits you to utilize any kind of texture, not simply cotton.
