Questions and Answers About DTF
Which is Better DTF or DTG
DTF (Direct to Film) and DTG (Direct to Garment) are both digital printing methods used in the garment industry, but they have some differences in terms of the process, quality, and cost.

DTF involves printing designs directly onto a specialized film, which is then heat-pressed onto the garment. This method is faster than DTG and allows for printing on a wider range of fabrics, including dark and colored garments. However, the films used in DTF can be expensive, and the DTF transfer process can be more complicated.

DTG, on the other hand, involves printing designs directly onto the garment using specialized inkjet printers. This method produces high-quality prints with vibrant colors and a soft feel. It is ideal for smaller orders and complex designs. However, DTG is limited in terms of the types of fabrics it can be used on and is generally slower than direct transfer film printer.

In terms of which method is better, it depends on your specific needs. If you need to print on a wide range of fabrics and need a faster turnaround time, DTF transfer printing may be the better option. However, if you are looking for high-quality prints with vibrant colors and a soft feel, DTG may be the better choice. It is best to consult with a professional in the industry to determine which method is best suited for your project.

Is DTF Better Than Vinyl
DTF (Direct-to-Fabric) printing and vinyl printing are two different printing techniques, and the better option depends on your specific needs and preferences.

DTF transfer printing involves printing directly onto the fabric, which results in a more natural and vibrant color reproduction. The ink penetrates the fibers of the fabric, creating a long-lasting print that doesn't crack or peel. Direct to film printing process is ideal for printing on items such as T-shirts, hats, and bags.

Vinyl printing, on the other hand, involves cutting out designs from vinyl material and then heat-pressing them onto the fabric. Vinyl prints are durable and long-lasting, but they can feel stiff and heavy on the fabric, and the colors may not be as vibrant as those produced by DTF printing. Vinyl printing is often used for creating custom designs on sports jerseys, hats, and other apparel.

Overall, if you are looking for a more natural and vibrant color reproduction and a softer feel on the fabric, DTF printing process may be the better option. However, if you need a durable and long-lasting print that can withstand high temperatures and rough conditions, vinyl printing may be a better choice.

Re: PR kid to local school for P3/P4

❰❰ Quote:

I have 2 kids. We are Singapore PRs. Elder kid is in International School. She will be in P4 next year. Younger kid we are planning to enroll in local school. If I want to register for my elder kid, will it be too much pressure if she starts from P4? I think PSLE preparation already would have started by then. Please provide suggestions if its advisable to register for elder kid to local school?
Also what is the procedure for registering elder kid?

There are many benefits to having both kids in the same system and school calendar. If you are going to do it, now is the time. I know a guy who had a daughter in the Indian international school and moved her to local around P4 as well. She was able to catch up within a year and did just fine on the PSLE. Amazingly, she was even able to transition from Hindi to Tamil within that year, but parents were Tamil speakers.

Re: Which local schools for excellent English/communication skills?

I applaud Addadude on his cool headed response — we can disagree on issues, but personal attacks are not productive.

PR Chance

Hi all,I would like to get some thoughts on my PR chance to maybe ease my concerns :shock:

PR Application Date: Dec2023
PR Status: Pending

Nationality: Malaysian
Race: Chinese
Age: 34
Gender: Female
Degree: Masters (in relations to Psychology), Graduated in the UK
In SG: Since Nov2021
Salary: 42k+
Occupation: Admin Related (Not related to Psychology)

What are my chances based on the above? Although I do read around that Malaysian Chinese generally have a better chance but I do know someone who just got rejected after 8months. Plus, I know there's nothing to shout about in regards to my salary and work background. I'm just getting anxious cause I'm currently in the process of switching jobs with a rough 15% increment. Nothing in finalised yet with my new employer. I just wish I get my PR before they go through the whole process with the work pass

Re: REP renewal - unique situation

Thanks for the reply - do you know if there is any way to find out if my REP expiry date will automatically be extended when my spouse officially completes the registration as a SGC?

I wasn't sure if I needed to put a request into ICA for this.

1. After your wife become sc, you will remain a PR under her sponsorship, as confirmed by ICA FAQs.
2. As the REP expiry date is available in the ICA portal, so by right you can always check after your wife complete the sc registration. But if you need this info immediately, I think the only way to contact ICA directly?

Re point 1- does that mean that since she is now a SG citizen, my REP will always get renewed as my original PR was under her sponsorship? Or will my REP renewal be based solely on my own merits - e.g. own pay, job .....

Re: Loses money on every property he has bought

The best liquidity is around sought-after schools. Unless the unit (or development) has something very undesirable, you should be able to move it quickly.
