Direct-to-fabric heat pressing is a method of applying designs onto fabric using a combination of heat and pressure. This technique is often used in the garment industry for creating custom designs on various types of fabrics. Here are the steps for direct-to-fabric heat pressing:

Setting up the Heat Press:

  • Adjust Pressure: Depending on your heat press model, adjust the pressure knob or lever to ensure that there is enough pressure to transfer the design effectively onto the fabric.
  • Place Fabric on the Platen: Lay the fabric flat onto the lower platen of the heat press, making sure it is smooth and free from wrinkles.
  • Position the Transfer: Position the transfer paper or vinyl with the design facing down onto the fabric in the desired location.
  • Time Setting:

Cotton Fabrics:

    • Temperature: 350-375°F (175-190°C)
    • Time: 15-20 seconds

Blended Fabrics (Cotton/Polyester):

    • Temperature: 350-375°F (175-190°C)
    • Time: 15-20 seconds

Cooling and Peeling:

  • Cooling Time: After the pressing time is complete, carefully lift the upper platen and allow the fabric and transfer material to cool down for a short period (usually a few seconds to a minute).
  • Peel the Transfer Material: Gently peel off the transfer paper

Caring for direct-to-fabric (DTF) printed clothing is important to ensure that the vibrant designs and fabric quality are preserved over time. Here are some tips to help you maintain your DTF printed garments:

  • Washing Instructions:
    • Turn the garment inside out before washing. This helps protect the printed design from friction and exposure to harsh detergents.
    • Use cold water for washing. Hot water can cause the colors to fade and the fabric to weaken.
    • Avoid using bleach or harsh chemicals, as they can damage both the print and the fabric.
    • Use a gentle detergent designed for delicate fabrics.
  • Drying:
    • Air drying is the best option for DTF printed clothing. Avoid using a dryer, as high heat can cause the print to crack or fade. If you must use a dryer, use a low-heat setting.
  • Ironing:
    • If ironing is necessary, turn the garment inside out and use a low-temperature setting. Avoid ironing directly over the printed design.
