Kodak Launches KODACOLOR Film-to-Fabric (Also Known as DTF or Direct-to-Film) Ink System

Rochester, NY — Eastman Kodak Company has launched a new ink system to print Film-to-Fabric (DTF), projects.

You can use film-to-fabric ink systems with most modifiable inkjet printers. They only require three components: powder and film. The benefits of DTF, like Kodak’s FTF (Film-to-Fabric) system, include the ability to print on a wide variety of fabrics (e.g. natural fabrics, including rayon, nylon and blends of cotton; lower startup costs; greater flexibility for customers to print their own designs.

Kodak’s film-to-fabric ink system includes KODACOLOR powder, KODACOLOR film, and ink specially designed for use in a film-to-fabric application. Customers with existing Direct-to-Garment (DTG) printers have the option to use KODACOLOR DTG inks with KODACOLOR film and powder to add Kodak’s FTF to their offerings.

For fabric print shop owners wanting high-quality fabric prints without the expense of a full-fledged DTG fabric printing system or wanting to offer additional print projects on fabrics other than cotton to their customers, Kodak’s FTF ink system is the ideal solution.

Grant French, Kodak’s DTG and FTF product manager said, “We are pleased to announce the entry of Kodak into this market, giving more customers access to a high-quality, lower cost business option to create amazing, printed fabric projects.”

Kodak has been producing and selling digital inks for thermal piezo and continuous inkjet systems going back to the 1990’s demonstrating our ongoing commitment to the inkjet business. Kodak’s strong tradition of innovation and excellence has been a testament to our ability to create superior fabrics inks and ink system designs.

Kodak is seeing a lot of growth in customizing fabrics for apparel, upholstery, and soft signage.

KODACOLOR products were manufactured in Rochester NY, USA.
