Using DTF (Direct to Film) heat transfer film to make name tags

Using DTF (Direct to Film) heat transfer film to make name tags is a simple process. Here are the steps:

  1. Create your design: Use a design software or online tool to create your name tag design. Make sure to set your color profile to CMYK and save the file in a PNG format with at least 300 DPI for the best quality.
  2. Print the design: Print the design on the DTF heat transfer film. Make sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for loading the film into the printer.
  3. Cut the design: Once the design is printed, use a cutting machine to cut the design to the desired size and shape. If you don’t have a cutting machine, you can use scissors to cut the design.
  4. Apply the heat transfer powder: Apply the heat transfer powder to the printed design using a sifter or a brush. Make sure the powder is evenly distributed on the design.
  5. Cure the powder: Place the design with the powder onto a heat press and apply heat for the amount of time and temperature specified by the manufacturer.
  6. Transfer the design: Place the design onto the fabric for the name tag and cover with a teflon sheet. Apply heat and pressure with the heat press for the amount of time specified by the manufacturer.
  7. Peel off the film: After the transfer is complete, allow it to cool for a few seconds and then peel off the DTF film from the fabric.
  8. Attach the name tag: You can attach the name tag to the fabric using a sewing machine or fabric glue.

Using DTF heat transfer film to make name tags is a great way to add a personalized touch to your clothing or uniforms. With the right equipment and materials, you can create professional-looking name tags quickly and easily.
