It’s mid-July, which means that baseball’s best performers will be taking the field in an exhibition of the best the sport has to offer. It’s a good time, then, to introduce the all-stars of heat transfer vinyl and let them show their stuff.
Ladies, and gentlemen, your CAD-CUT® All-Stars!
The ideal leadoff hitter has a versatile set of tools: plate discipline, a good on-base percentage, speed, and skilled baserunning. Leading off for the CAD-CUT All-Stars is Premium Plus™. With excellent stretch and rebound properties, it can handle the demands of sports uniforms, warmup gear, and performance wear.
Speaking of performance wear, Premium Plus can be applied as low as 280°, making it a great option for heat-sensitive fabrics. Add on a silky matte finish, light weight, and soft hand, and you see why Premium Plus is always in scoring position.
Next up to the plate is Fashion-FILM®. These days, number 2 hitters aren’t just asked to sacrifice, but to drive the ball and provide an offensive lift. Fashion-FILM does just that with a light weight that’s perfect for cotton T-shirts and a selection of colors that includes neons, metallic, and pastels. Attention to detail is no problem, as its pressure-sensitive carrier makes it the best choice for highly-detailed designs. Every T-shirt shop should have Fashion-FILM in its lineup.
Sluggers might get all the glory, but the three-hole is often occupied by a team’s best hitter, able to drive in runners himself and reach base to set the table for the fourth batter. There’s no better hitter in heat transfer vinyl than Thermo-FILM®. Resistant to abrasion, it stands tough against the best the opposition can throw at it, and its low-bleed formula resists dye migration on polyester garments, meaning white stays white and colors stay true.
The cleanup spot is usually reserved for an offensive powerhouse. In fact, some of baseball’s biggest names, like Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, and Reggie Jackson, have made themselves famous batting fourth. In a spot known for its star power, our cleanup hitter is Glitter Flake™. An awesome choice for fanwear, spirit wear, cheer and dance apparel, (and the list goes on), Glitter Flake’s textured sparkle makes it stand out as a fan favorite. Plus, it’s a great way to add an extra dimension to embroidered designs, using Stahls’ Rip-Away Appliqué process.
So there you have it, folks, your CAD-CUT All-Stars! Whether you’re decorating fashionable T-shirts, eye-catching spirit wear, or the toughest sports uniforms, get on the field and play ball with Stahls’ CAD-CUT heat transfer vinyl.
