What’s the difference between DTF ink and DTG ink, reactive ink?

All those 3 inks are mainly for cotton fabric. Each ink has a different process. Reactive ink can get the best color, and best resistance, but need a more complex process. More used for high-quality level printing.
DTG pigment ink printing for T-shirts is an old technology but has not had a big market share for years. DTF technology almost solved all problems that DTG has. It solved not a bright color, not good wash resistance. Though the hand feel of DTF is a little bit more, it can improve step by step.

T-shirt printing is a huge market, especially pure cotton, especially black pure cotton T-shirts (Before, no technology solved well how to print a soft and bright pure cotton black T-shirt).
