What is fluorescent DTF print? Let’s first understand fluorescent inks. Fluorescent inks are inks that glow under UV and black light. DTF fluorescent printing is the same as normal DTF. The only difference is that we do not use regular DTF inks. Design is the first step in printing. Patch colors are used in fluorescent prints. Cyan, Orange, Green, etc. Fluorescence should be considered when designing artwork. Images cannot be downloaded and printed. Vector design is required to change the colors or add patches.
Can i use my normal DTF printer to print Fluorescent inks ?
You can, but:
The entire CISS system, including the pipe, ink ducts, dampers, and tracks, must be replaced.

What is the best way to start a Fluorescent DTF Printing Business?
Fluorescent DTF is a specialty that adds value to any DTF or textile printing company. Only if you have an existing DTF printer should you opt for fluorescent DTF.
