Compared with the current screen printing, the biggest advantage of DTF is that it can quickly customize patterns with DTF, which cannot be achieved by screen printing. With the current update speed of social media such as TikTok and Facebook, screen printing cannot keep up with their speed. DTF can directly cooperate with real-time hotspots for printing creation, bringing more traffic and orders to your store.
Compared with DTG, it needs to pre-treatment the cloth, while DTF does not. This means that there are fewer process steps for pigment printing if no pre-treatment is required, and print service providers can reduce the time to market. In addition, energy-intensive auxiliary equipment, a prerequisite for reactive printing, is costly to operate and takes up valuable floor space compared to pigment processes. Secondly, DTG has high requirements for fabric pre-treatment, and human error in processing will lead to an effect on the finished product.

There is an environmental protection issue that the government and people are most concerned about. DTF is a new sustainable development technology. Compared with the traditional screen printing process and DTG, DTF does not pollute water resources, and printing through a print head saves energy and avoids manual operation errors. Finally, the pattern is printed on the clothes by a heat press machine, which is easy to operate and does not produce exhaust gas and pollution. The traditional screen printing process requires cleaning and pigment printing to make the final product. This process will generate a lot of water pollution and pigment waste. DTG has a fabric pre-treatment process, which may pollute water resources. Therefore, DTF is currently the most environmentally friendly member of digital printing.
In the future, people will be more willing to see DTF products with bright colors and much easier production than screen printing and DTG. Nowadays, there have been many DTF printers available for home use. With media promotion and customer experience discovery, this technology will enter the eyes of more people. In the future, not only manufacturers will produce DTF products, but more people will use DTF for personalized customization. We believe that the total number of digital printing will occupy 30% of the printing market in the next ten years, and will exceed the market share of screen printing in two decades.
