DTF transfers can be stored for up to 2 years without any problems
If you are using good quality DTF consumables (film, ink and powder) you can keep the transfers for a long time without loss of quality (colour vibrancy; softness; ease of peeling)
- Use butcher's paper or parchment paper between the transfers to avoid them sticking to each other. The paper will also help absorb any evaporation from the transfers over time, and will help keep them dry and clean.
- Put them in a sealed container or Ziplock bag with a couple of silica satchels to keep them humidity out.
- Make sure you never touch the surface of the printed transfer with your fingers (use gloves, ideally) so as to avoid any smudges or scratches on the surface, as these could gradually degrade its quality, even if it was stored properly.
- Store them in a place which has a controlled temperature and humidity as drastic changes in climate could cause fading or discoloration over time.
