Yes, you can request us to RUSH or expedite your order for an additional fee.

This option can be found on the Shopping Cart or Checkout page.

If you do not see the RUSH option on the Checkout page, it is because your order total is more than $600.00. Normally orders over $600 do not qualify for a Rush. But if you have an order larger than that and need it in a hurry, Contact Us to see what we can do for you.

Yes! When ordering your DTF Transfers, select the 'Help From Designer' option. An artist help fee of $25 will be added for up to 30 minutes of assistance. This fee is non-refundable.

Vector artwork is preferred, as it gives the highest quality print. Raster artwork is acceptable, but make sure the quality is at least 300dpi at the actual size you want it printed. DPI less than 300 can result in  bad print quality and fuzzy/pixelated edges.

Our Preferred File Formats are PDF and PNG

Acceptable File Formats using our Designer Studio:

  • PDF, PNG, JPEG, JPG, GIF, SVG

Acceptable File Formats using our Upload Form:

  • PDF, PNG, JPEG, JPG, GIF

Products

DTF (direct-to-film) transfers are full color, printed heat transfers. Using CMYK and White inks, your design is printed onto a clear polyester liner, coated with an adhesive and heat cured. After curing, the transfers are ready to heat press onto your garment or store on the shelf for later use. DTF printing allows for fine detail, unlimited colors and gradients with no outlines. 'DTF by Wellington' transfers are applied at 290° for 12-15 seconds making them compatible with a wide array of garments and fabrics.

Here is our minimum and maximum size:

  • Minimum artwork design size is .25" x .25" (6.5mm x 6.5mm)
  • Maximum artwork design size is 20" x 24" (508mm x 609mm)

Maximum file size for upload is 150mb.

These transfers easily heat apply to cotton, polyester, poly/cotton blends, and tri-blends at 290° for 12-15 seconds at Medium #5 pressure. Peel hot or cold. Optional: cover and seal an additional 5 seconds for a matte finish and superior hand.

DTF Transfers can also apply to Nylon and Spandex, but results may vary so testing is recommended.

DTF Transfers should withstand 50 washes. For longer life, we recommend cold wash and tumble dry low settings.

Printing

No, exact color matching is not provided. Transfers are printed in CMYK not RGB. The colors on your screen are not an accurate representation of how artwork will print.

See Artwork Guidelines

DTF Transfers will only print with a white background if the design file is setup and saved that way.

White backgrounds are part of your design file when:

  • Your design file is saved as a JPG/JPEG
  • Not selecting transparent background when saving as a PNG file
  • Forgetting to check for and remove background layers in your design program

PDF files will always appear to have a white background/page, but this doesn't mean that it will print that way. Design programs like:

  • Adobe Illustrator
  • Adobe Photoshop
  • CorelDRAW

will allow you to save a PDF without a white background. Just make sure there are no white layers or objects you do not want printed.

Canva users will ALWAYS need to download their files as a PNG with transparent background. Downloading a PDF will include a solid white background, and this will get printed.

Our system supports RGB and CMYK for submitting artwork. However, the prints are produced in CMYK ink, so to get as accurate of colors as possible, submitting files with CMYK colors is recommended.

The DTF printers, inks, and other materials we use for our ‘in-house’ DTF production are the result of painstaking research, development, and fine-tuning. We consider this information proprietary and therefore choose not to share. We encourage you to research the various options available in this market to suit your individual needs.
