UV DTF with the BD-8

With the BD-8, you can produce UV DTF decals for transferring intricate designs onto a variety of surfaces* and shapes with no weeding required, such as plastics, metal, wood, acrylic, glass and more. The BD-8 delivers vibrant, detailed prints every time, ideal for putting photos, text and logos onto products like personalized technology, fashion accessories, event merchandise and more.

* Testing is recommended for each material that graphics will be applied to. Items with graphic transfers should be washed by hand, as machine washing is known to reduce adhesion.

Professional Print Quality Meets Ease of Use

Anyone can easily achieve professional-grade results with the BD-8. The printer supports True Rich Color 3, a print setting that helps optimize color vibrancy and accuracy, and has a variety of print modes with built-in setting information for specific applications, ensuring optimal results on smooth, curved and uneven surfaces.
