Depending on what part of the country you’re from it may be hard to believe, but spring sports are just around the corner. With 12.7 million outdoor soccer players, 4.5 million Little Leaguers, and nearly 1.8 million lacrosse players stringing their sticks, keeping up with demand is important.
With pre-spaced text for player names paired with pre-cut numbers, you’re able to personalize team uniforms with your heat press in one easy step. But as you prepare for the season, it’s important to consider the right materials and fonts for each sport.
Baseball uniforms can be decorated using Thermo-FILM®, Thermo-GRIP®, Premium Plus™ and even Poly-TWILL™ pre-cut letters and numbers, so you can offer your customers options depending on the look they want for the team and whether they’d like fully sewn names and numbers.
Lacrosse is a rough and tumble sport so make sure you pick an abrasion-resistant material for your decoration. We recommend Thermo-FILM®, which is abrasion-resistant and helps inhibit dye migration on polyester jerseys, or Thermo-GRIP®, which is also abrasion-resistant and works great on nylon mesh. Both materials are available in both pre-cut and pre-spaced letters and numbers.

Because soccer isn’t a full-contact sport you’ve got options when it comes to decorating with pre-cut and pre-spaced letters and numbers. Thermo-FILM®, Thermo-GRIP®, and Premium Plus™ are all excellent choices but we recommend staying away from Poly-Twill™ because it adds too much bulk to the soccer uniform.
