B. Seamless printing process: DTF printing eliminates the need for color separations and screen setups, streamlining production and reducing the time and effort required for each print job.

C. High resolution and fine details: DTF printing offers exceptional print resolution, making it suitable for intricate designs and photo-realistic artwork.
