What’s the difference between DTF ink and DTG ink?
DTG pigment ink printing for T-shirts is an old technology but had not had a big market share for years. DTF technology almost solved all problems that DTG has. It solved not bright enough color, not good wash resistance. Though the hand feel of DTF is a little bit more, it can be improved 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).
