DTF Printers in South Africa

DTF Printers for clothing & textile

DTF printers, or Direct-to-Film printers, represent an innovative technology in the world of printing, providing businesses with a versatile and efficient solution for producing high-quality prints on various surfaces. DTF printing is particularly popular in industries such as apparel, signage, and promotional products. It is similar to screen printing, in the sense that you can use both methods to print on fabric, but overall they are two distinct printing methods, each with its own set of processes and characteristics.


They can be used on various materials, therefore expanding the range of products your business can offer. This makes them an ideal choice for businesses looking to diversify their product lines.


DTF printing can be a cost-effective solution for your business, as it eliminates the need for screens or plates commonly used in traditional printing methods. This reduces setup costs and makes short runs or custom orders more economically viable.

High-Quality Prints

DTF printing produces high-resolution and vibrant prints, ensuring that your final products meet the highest quality standards.

Quick Turnaround

The process is relatively fast, allowing businesses to fulfil orders quickly. This works well for those dealing with time-sensitive projects or customers who require rapid turnaround times.

Customisation and Personalisation

DTF printing enables easy customisation and personalisation of prints, catering to individual customer preferences.

Key Functions of our DTF Printers

Printing Designs on Film

MaxLaser’s DTF printers excel in accurately transferring intricate designs onto a specialised film, ensuring precision and detail in the final print.

Using Specialised Inks

Our printers are compatible with a variety of specialised DTF inks that are formulated to work with the film and can withstand high temperatures during heat transfer printing, optimising colour vibrancy and longevity due to the ink’s higher concentration of pigment, resin, and solvent.

Heat Transfer Process

The heat transfer process ensures that the ink from the film adheres securely to the chosen surface. This results in durable, long-lasting prints with excellent colour retention.

Versatility in Material Compatibility

Max Laser’s DTF printers offer exceptional versatility by supporting a wide range of materials. This adaptability makes them suitable for various industries, including apparel, signage, and promotional product manufacturing.
