How to Apply Thermo-FILM on Split Front Jerseys

Freida at Sign Designs shared this excellent example of a Thermo-FILM application on a split-front baseball uniform.

How are you using Thermo-FILM this spring season? We know it’s the most popular athletic numbering and lettering material in the world, but we still like to see how you’re using it. Freida at Sign Designs in Summerville, GA shared this two-color Thermo-FILM application on a baseball jersey. We really like the silver backround color and the use of the gap outline, which gives the design a three-color look, using the color of the uniform as the third color. Her post attracted a lot of comments, mostly from folks who wanted to know how she did it. Here is what she replied:

  1. Apply the outline (background layer) 3 seconds at heavy pressure using a pressing pillow.
  2. Peel hot.
  3. Move your garment to solid surface such as a work table.
  4. You can then line up the 2nd layer easier.
  5. Return to press and press 8 seconds heavy pressure with a pressing pillow.
