We decided to stop screen printed service and change to DFT which is more environmentally friendly than screen printed. This is due to its use less water and energy while decreasing the amount of hazardous wastewater that is released into nearby waterways.
Direct File Transfer also known as DFT. Player names and numbers are print on a special film and transfer on to the fabric using a high temperature heat press.
Player names and numbers are cut out of a plastic-type material and melted on to the fabric using a high temperature heat press.
Player names and numbers are printed directly into the shirts fabric during the shirt production.
Extremely Durable, but only available for sublimation printed GEAR brand shirts
Professional teams often use DFT because the DFT produces high-quality prints with vibrant colors and a soft hand feel. Whereas local/youth teams often use Sublimation or PolyFlex which is thicker than DFT, you will not see the shirts/shorts color behind the white PolyFlex.
If your uniforms will be used very frequently we suggest DFT or Sublimation.
For regular/lower usage uniforms we recommend PolyFlex.
Sublimaiton, DFT or PolyFlex shirts/shorts should never be put in the drier.
Sublimation, DFT or PolyFlex shirts/shorts should be turned inside out before washing in cold water or ironing in lowest heat.
