Heat Transfer Numbers for FootballIt may only be May, but decorators are already getting ready for the fall sports busy season.

With over 2 million football players across youth, high school, and college leagues, more than 480,000 high school volleyball players and millions of boys getting ready for soccer, fall sports season is a big opportunity for your business. Don’t miss out, start planning now.

Pre-Spaced Text for player names paired with Pre-Cut Numbers make it easy to personalize team uniforms with your heat press in one easy step. However, it’s important to consider the right materials, fonts, and number styles for each sport.



Full contact sports, like football, require heat transfer materials that are durable and abrasion-resistant. Thermo-FILM®, is the #1 athletic heat transfer material for good reason; it’s engineered to outlast the jersey itself. Other options for football uniforms include Thermo-GRIP®, Poly-TWILL®, and the simulated embroidery look of SimStitch®. Always check with your local sports league administrators for specific decorating requirements for the league.
