Not all DTF transfers are equal. Depending on how they are made and applied, the final result (feel) can be very different. Make sure you are using good quality DTF transfers that you apply correctly and you will have much fewer complaints. However, you should be upfront with your customers and tell them that this is the newest digital printing process. It has a different feel from screen printing but will look better and hold up just as well.

That is what we tell them.
And we have our own DTF machine.
Try several different film, powder, and ink combinations. You will find there are big differences. You also need to control the amount of ink being applied. When pressed on a t-shirt your transfer should be thin enough so the texture of the shirt can be felt through the transfer. If it feels like a smooth vinyl keep making changes to your process. It takes a lot of trial and error.
