WHAT ARE PRE-SPACED PLAYER NAMES & NUMBERS?
Pre-spaced player names and numbers can be ordered from Stahls’ as a service. They come to you on a carrier sheet. All you do is position the sheet on the jersey and heat press. This is different from using Pre-Cut HTV letters and numbers.
PRE-SPACED NAMES & NUMBERS VS. PRE-CUT HTV LETTERS & NUMBERS
For example, let’s say you spend about one-minute arranging pre-cut letters and numbers per uniform. You’re customizing for a league with 150 players. Almost two-hours are dedicated to arranging and printing. And that’s if you’re speedy. It will probably be closer to three hours for most.
When using pre-spaced player names and numbers, layout and application time is reduced to less than 15 seconds per shirt. Which means, the same job is done in under 40 minutes.
This realization leads us to the number one reason to use pre-spaced names and numbers over pre-cut heat press letters and numbers.
TOP 5 REASONS
1. HUGE PRODUCTION TIME SAVER
It’s true. Reduce production time by two-thirds by choosing Pre-Spaced heat press numbers and letters over pre-cut HTV letters and numbers. The second reason is even more important if you are planning to print two-color names and numbers.
2. SAVE EVEN MORE TIME ON 2-COLOR NAMES & NUMBERS
Pre-spaced names and numbers are available in two-color combinations. With pre-cut letters you will double your layout time doing two-color. With Pre-Spaced heat press numbers and letters, you don’t add any additional time.
Choose different heat transfer materials for the backgrounds and foregrounds. Why is this important? Because you may need a different adhesive on the background number, so it sticks to performance wear. But you don’t need that more expensive heat transfer material on the foreground number. Save money by using a cheaper heat transfer vinyl on the foreground.
Thirdly, pre-spaced player names and numbers are so easy to order from Stahls’.
3. EASY TO ORDER
Easily click through the ordering process, selecting styles, materials and colors. When it comes to entering player name and number combinations, upload your list of players and manage the lists in STAHLS’ system or type in each name and number combinations as you go.
The fourth top reason is pre-spaced player names and numbers are the only way to go if you need arched names.
4. PERFECT ARCHES EVERY TIME
You don’t have to worry about creating beautiful arches, STAHLS’ does it for you. Choose the Arch Layout option when placing your order. All the names are perfectly arched for you to heat apply in seconds. No frustrating layout time.
Lastly, the fifth reason is because your customers deserve the best.
5. CONSISTENT, PROFESSIONAL RESULTS
Team and league buyers expect all the uniforms to look consistent and professional. Using pre-spaced player names and numbers ensures the same distance between names and numbers. You won’t have the long name vs. short name dilemma. STAHLS’ determines the spacing calculations for you. You just heat press the finished names and numbers in one press.
In conclusion, there are many more reasons to choose pre-spaced player names and numbers. While they do cost more than pre-cuts, you will soon find they are worth every extra penny.
If cost is an issue, consider combining pre-cut heat transfer numbers with pre-spaced player names. Pre-cut numbers are very easy to arrange. It will take a little longer than pressing one single sheet with both the name and number on it, but it’s a good way to save some money.
