Recently, discussions about UV dtf film are in full swing. Anyone in the industry for a long time knows that although UV dtf film is similar to traditional labeling, there are also no small differences.

First, the difference in craftsmanship.

The early traditional labeling process was relatively cumbersome and required multiple steps to complete. First, you need to prepare the adhesive and printing ink in advance, prepare the main materials and auxiliary materials, and design the printing film and printing plate in advance; the second step is to coat release silicone oil on the surface of the high-density material; the third step, the printing has been prepared The fourth step is to print the prepared protective primer; the fifth step is to print the prepared inks of each color; the sixth step is to print the UV protective varnish, and then dry it through UV ultraviolet light; the seventh step, Cover the high-viscosity protective film, and then cut the finished product. The process of UV dtf film is simple and fast, no plate making, and no waste discharge, as long as the pattern is confirmed, it can be printed, the glue ink is directly sprayed, and an A3 size pattern can be printed in a few minutes, and then the film can be laminated after printing.

Second, the difference in the number of prints.

Traditional labeling requires plate making and mold opening, which generally has higher requirements for the number of prints, which is more suitable for mass production, while UV dtf film does not need to open the screen and print one sheet.

Third, the difference in effect.

The traditional labeling color is relatively dim and easy to fade, and many special complex processes cannot be achieved. UV dtf film supports embossing, varnish, and complex pattern printing, which is easy to carry, easy to repost, and does not fall off.
