DTF Transfers: The Ultimate Guide to Creating Your Own Unique T-Shirt Label!

A Quick Introduction

Are you looking to start your own T-shirt label? Thanks to modern technology, it’s easier than ever to achieve high-quality, and fit your custom designs on your blank T-shirts yourself. In this post, we’ll take you through the steps of creating your own T-shirt label using DTF (Direct to Film) transfers to decorate your T-shirts.

Getting Started: Choosing Your Design

The first step in creating your own T-shirt label is choosing your design. Consider your target audience and the message you want your T-shirts to convey. Once you have a design in mind, you can create it yourself using design software or hire a graphic designer to bring your vision to life.

Preparing Your Design for DTF Transfer

Once you have your designs, it’s time to prepare it for DTF transfer. This involves converting your design into a digital format ready to be printed onto DTF film. Be sure to follow the following instructions to get the best results.

  • Create your artwork in High Resolution.
  • Create your artwork in RGB, this is the best for printing DTF Transfers.
  • Create your artwork with a transparent background.
  • Remove any unwanted colours from the artwork, (if you are printing onto a black T Shirt you may want to remove the black from the design and use the Black of the T Shirt.)
  • While DTF Transfers can print fine details, it can be difficult to fit fine details, so make sure to make the details as bold as possible for the best results.
  • Crop your design to remove any empty space.
  • Save your file as a .PNG, this will work the best when uploading your artwork online.

Ordering DTF Transfers for Your T-Shirt

After preparing your design, it’s time to order your DTF Transfers, DTF Transfers Australia has an easy-to-use online ordering system. This allows you too easily order online and gang up any prints onto the sheets, proof the way the transfers will look and order the quantities that you are after. Below are a few steps to follow.

  • Decide the size you want the prints. Select the film size that suits your required transfers.
  • Leave a bleed edge of 10mm around the outside of the transfer. (If you do not do this DTF Transfers Australia will reduce the size of your prints to allow for this.)
  • Upload your artwork to the website, and position on the film as required.
  • A quick tip, while it seems like a good idea to stack as much as possible onto the film, it can make it difficult to trim and fit your transfers, when you are peeling the film, it is best to have some extra film around your design.
  • Order the quantities that you need, add to cart and purchase.
  • DTF Transfers Australia will take care of the rest.
