    Is it good to have very smooth texture of print or is it better to have a little bit roughness on the print?

    These places you can order your own prints to put on shirts from. Will they do videogame stuff? Like logos from it or pictures.

    Very interesting perspective. Thank you for sharing. IMO, There are significant differences in PRODUCTION PROCESS as well as QUALITY OUTPUT from DTG manufacturers. For example, inline pretreatment and settings built into a fabric library VS. manually applied pretreatment/separate machine. There's a control and consistency factor here… Low volume DTG equipment (Brother, Epson), requires offline pretreatment or pretreated garments (more expensive), adding production touch points, labor, & welcoming in the potential for good old "human error". Low volume users can get away with this production method, but will be challenged to scale effectively if looking to grow. This is one of the biggest areas where I see owners/operators struggle with DTG. Industrial volume equipment like Kornit Digital's has pretreatment incorporated into the process, using a WET on WET printing technology. Kornit DTG output vibrancy is unmatched. I like the Skull sample and I've seen it before. That came off of a Kornit, and not a Brother, right?

    Thanks for the great video! I'm thinking of using DTF on my t-shirts for the upcoming season because it could print more accurate and vibrant colors, in my opinion. However, I also think that DTG is a better method for t-shirts cause it's more breathable. Could you please tell me how breathable DTF prints are compared to DTG prints? Thanks!

    Is there a significant difference with the touch/feel of DTF compared to DTG. I've been doing DTF for about a year now and it doesn't feel bad but some people do complain that it feels a little stiff, etc…

    What are your thoughts? Thanks.

    Someone here has very little or no experience at all with DTF. Because the info give about the colors in DTF is completely inaccurate. Recommend you do more research.
