Empowering Dealers: DTF Station Successfully Concludes June Dealer Training Workshop

DTF-Dealer-Traing-Workshop

In June 20-21, DTF STATION proudly hosted the dealer training workshop in California, uniting domestic and international partners. Following the success of our last dealer workshop in Italy for EU dealers, we swiftly organized this event to expand opportunities for connection, insights sharing, and industry leadership.

The workshop marked a significant achievement, reaffirming our dedication to nurturing robust partnerships and mutual advancement. Distinguished by its inclusion of an online live streaming YouTube channel—unlike our previous sessions in Italy—it extended participation to a wider global audience. The enthusiastic feedback and engagement from both online and in-person attendees underscored the workshop’s success, highlighting our dealers’ active involvement in discussions and collaborative initiatives defining the ethos of DTF STATION.

Our Commitment to Dealer Training

At DTF STATION, our dealer training program transcends a mere series of workshops. It serves as a vital platform for fostering transparency and collaboration. We firmly believe that well-informed and knowledgeable dealers are better equipped to support their customers, driving greater success for all parties involved. Our core value, “our customers’ success is our success,” is not just a slogan but a deeply ingrained principle that guides our operations and mindset.


The two-day dealer workshop was filled with valuable sessions aimed at empowering our dealers. While we could elaborate extensively on each aspect, here are some key highlights we would like to share:

DTF Station Overview 2024

Since its inception in 2022, when DTF printing technology reached maturity, DTF STATION has swiftly emerged as a major industry player. In just two years, we have sold over 6,000 printers to international markets. Our dealer network has expanded to 27 countries, with 32 dealers in the United States and 28 international dealers, bringing DTF STATION solutions to an ever-growing number of users worldwide.

Why DTF Station? What Makes Us Different?

Among our esteemed dealers are industry experts with over a century of experience. We are proud to collaborate with these seasoned professionals. While the reasons they choose DTF STATION may vary, our distinct advantages set us apart in the industry. Here’s why DTF STATION stands out:

Transparency: At DTF STATION, transparency is paramount. Whether through hosting dealer training workshops or our sales team’s frequent share with dealers regarding product updates and industry information, we are dedicated to creating a transparent environment. Our dealers have a clear understanding of what to expect and what is happening on our end, whether positive or challenging. Transparency and trust form the foundation of our partnerships with dealers.

Social Media: Despite not having a dedicated large team to manage our social media platforms, we are fortunate to have customers who have spontaneously created Facebook groups to provide tech support at no cost for DTF STATION. We deeply appreciate their efforts and encourage our dealers to enhance their presence on social media. Building trust and leveraging these platforms can significantly boost sales and strengthen customer relationships.

Discord/Slack: DTF STATION is committed to fostering instant communication between dealers, users, and our team. Moving beyond traditional ticket systems that often result in extended wait times, we offer real-time support through platforms like our former Slack channel and current Discord community. Our goal is to provide prompt assistance, with help available within minutes or hours, ensuring efficient and effective support for all our partners and customers.

Over 700 Instructional Videos: To support our dealers in focusing on marketing and sales, DTF STATION has developed a comprehensive library of videos for each product. This extensive collection includes promotional videos, installation guides, how-to tutorials, maintenance instructions, troubleshooting tips, and much more. Should you find that a specific video is not available, please do not hesitate to reach out to our team. We welcome your feedback and ideas, and we will evaluate and schedule the creation of additional content to meet your needs.

AI/Scalability: Recognizing the transformative potential of AI, DTF STATION has developed its own AI tech assistant, integrated into our Discord community. This cutting-edge tool is designed to continuously learn and handle basic inquiries, with the potential to address a significant portion of technical support requests in the future. By automating routine support tasks, our AI assistant aims to enhance dealer efficiency and free up valuable time, paving the way for more streamlined and effective operations.

Continuous Development: At DTF STATION, we acknowledge that while our rigorous pre-launch testing ensures high standards, no product is without its imperfections. Our commitment to excellence drives us to continually test and refine our equipment. This dedication to ongoing improvement is exemplified by our Founder, who personally oversees testing processes to ensure that our products consistently evolve and improve. And many of the equipment we currently carry has undergone rigorous testing over the course of more than a year, spanning through at least 5-6 iterations prior to its final launch.
