DTG is greater than DTF, DTF is an glorified iron on, while DTG is a water based product softer feel. DTF still is only good for small prints and not large images. You will lose customers if you only offer DTF. Provide both options, find a DTG printer.

The hand feel can get slightly better with using a more quality film, because you can use less ink, less powder to achieve your results. The reason the hand feels bad besides it just being a large area of ink with glue behind it, is that your feeling a different texture compared to the shirt. This is why currently I only use the DTG process for left chest and sleeve prints, since most of what you feel is the shirt, the print doesn't feel bad. Its the case in larger prints, and to achieve the same idea you will need to practice with using halftones, but will lose some clarity in the image.
