Load the transfer sheet onto printer-platen, with the matte side facing up. Tip: Always handle film by edges or corners.
Print according to ink manufacturer's recommendations, or rip profile settings.
Remove from platen and prepare for powder application.
If recommended by your ink manufacturer, let the ink sit for at least 1 minute or hover press for 15 seconds, before adding powder.
Apply DTF Powder
Add powder evenly across one end of the printed side of the film.
Lift and allow powder to slowly and evenly slide across the entire sheet.
Gently shake and tap the film from the back, to remove any excess powder.
Note: Our films release the excess powder very easily, so you don't have to shake the film excessively.
