Below, we've highlighted a list of FAQ's to help determine if Direct-to-Film Heat transfer is the right decoration method for your upcoming project.

How much does Direct-to-Film Heat transfer cost? 

For general pricing please check the deco pricing under your log in. The pricing is based on 6" and add for additional inches. If you don't know the size of your logo or if you have any questions please don't hesitate to call all as sizes can vary. Heat transfers (DTF) are charged by the square inch. Email our Art Department with your artwork and the size of your order for a free quote.

What kind of art files do you accept? 

We accept artwork in the following formats - Electronic art in .eps, .ai, .tiff, or .pdf files all with resolution of 300 dpi or greater. Artwork not meeting these guidelines will result in art charges.

Are there minimums on heat transfer orders? 

Direct-to-Film Heat transfer minimums are 24 pieces per logo. Orders less than 24 pieces will incur a fee.

What is your turnaround time? 

Our turnaround time is 10-12 business days. However, we are flexible with rush orders. If you have a specific deadline, please let us know beforehand so that we can plan accordingly.

Can I heat transfer (DTF) on assorted garment sizes? 

We can print youth and adult garment sizes together if the design size has been made to fit the smallest item being decorated. Some customers prefer two sizes of artwork made - one for adult and one for youth. In those cases, each imprint size is considered a separate order. When printing a small order, one size of the design is the most cost-effective choice.

Will you heat transfer (DTF) other suppliers' items that I send to you?

No. Our decoration services are limited to Charles River Apparel products. Sample products cannot be returned and used for decorated orders.
