DIY Title Plates

Here is an economical and efficient way of making title plates for your model displays using the Canon Selphy printer. 

The designs are create in Photoshop with the various unit insignia taken from the internet and printed in reverse.

Proceed to cut out and attach the printed side onto the adhesive portion of the reflective foil. 

Give it a good hard press with a steel plate or a flat object to expel any air pockets that may be trapped.

Overlay additional layers of foil for added thickness.

Trim the edges and soak it water for at least 8 hours. The water will dissolve the adhesive  and release the plastic film from the paper backing.

Finally, seal the transfer with some clear varnish of your preference and attached it to the pedestal with double-sided tape.
