A New Digital Printing Process
The DTF, or Direct to Film, process for digital printing has significant advantages. One of the biggest advantages is that it can be used to print on white or black t-shirts, with no need for pre-treatment. The process supports printing with or without white ink, on a wide range of substrates.
This process is suitable for t-shirts, hats, masks, bag, umbrellas, and solid surfaces, both flat and curved. It is adaptable to curved 3D surfaces in a way not possible with direct-to-garment inkjet printers.
The process begins with a special ink. Adhesive powder is applied to the wet ink after printing. After the powder is applied, it is melted and the ink dried, prior to final transfer in a heat press, similar to dye sublimation.
All of this is handled inline for real production by the Binterjet PSD line of printers with Binterjet sprayer, dryer and fuser, equipped with a subscription to Wasatch SoftRIP.
Binterjet PSD printers, for industrial DTF printing, are included in a premium Wasatch subscription for $65 per month.
With a Wasatch subscription you always have access to the latest revisions, newest features and device support, and unlimited access to the Wasatch service team. It is a low cost way to preserve your workflow and color when updating and adding new devices.
When updating your existing license, you have the option of running with your existing USB copy protection. This can reduce, or in some cases eliminate any need to connect to the Internet.
Alternatively, if you can connect to the Internet just once per week, you can start a cloud license that is assigned to your computer with no copy protection device at all. Only a brief connection is needed.
Starting at $49 per month, Wasatch subscriptions are a low-cost and low-risk option that you can choose to continue or cancel at any time. We hope you'll never want to cancel, but if you do, you can cancel any subscription at the press of a button.
You can even install a subscription alongside your permanent copy of Wasatch SoftRIP, run it for a month, and cancel if you feel the benefit was not enough for you. We think you'll discover a big benefit.
