Best Desktop DTF Printers in the Market

Why Choosing Desktop DTF Printer

By Sasho GjorevskiPublished about a month ago 3 min read

When it comes to machines for printing textiles, desktop DTF printers are more popular and have more advantages than screen printing and thermal sublimation printing.

Screen printing is not suitable for small businesses due to its nature and complex production process.

Thermal sublimation printing is very convenient and widely used, but if clothing is used, it must be taken into account that the fabric will have some limitations.

Although the desktop DTG is also very convenient and easy to operate, there are still some manufacturers who cannot print non-pure cotton fabric.

Because of all this, if you want to choose a machine for printing clothes, the best option is a DTF printer.

This is especially important for manufacturers who make and sell clothes in small quantities as a side business.

What they need most is probably not a mass production machine, but a desktop DTF printer.

Popular Desktop DTF Printers

Epson L1800 is one of the most popular DTF printers.

The small body, with the function of small series production can meet the needs when it comes to smaller printing needs.

The Epson L18050 is available in several sizes and is best suited for thermal sublimation printing.
