Advantages of Heat Print Numbers

One thing every team needs is numbers. The advantages of using heat print numbers over screen printing are numerous. In fact, textile screen printers are some of the largest users of heat printed numbers in the world. Heat printed numbers are—and always will be—a  fast, easy and clean way to number jerseys, whether you’re printing ten shirts or 10,000. If you stock pre-cut numbers you can print jerseys today. Even screen printers, who will screen print the front of the uniforms with mascots or team names, often use pre-cuts for the individual team numbers and names that go on the back. The beauty of heat print numbers is that you can create a single jersey, with a single number, in just seconds. This makes heat printing ideal for last minute orders or replacement jerseys. The same can’t be said for screen printing.

Team Numbering How To

Teams are usually made up of about 15 players, who each need an individual player number. While it may be cost effective for direct screen printers to screen print the team logos on the front of the shirts, a high level of technical expertise is required to successfully screen print numbers—even with equipment designed specifically for athletic numbering. It can be done, but even experienced screen printers and large garment manufacturers often rely on heat applied numbers to reduce printing error percentages. Here are some of the most popular heat applied numbering solutions available:

  • PRE-SPACED PLAYER NAMES: To take care of both numbers and player names at the same time, order pre-spaced player names and numbers from STAHLS’.
  • PRE-CUT or DIE-CUT: You can buy a wide selection of pre-cut/die-cut numbers and letters in packs, convenient kits or team sets for a lower cost, which allows you to layout the names and numbers yourself. Adding names and numbers is easy. Just arrange on your garment and heat apply. Layout guides and templates are available for proper alignment. Numbers are available in the most popular styles and sizes, in both one and two-color styles. Thermo-FILM® is the world’s most popular athletic numbering material, offering excellent opacity, wash ability and durability. When applied properly, they don’t peel, chip or flake off—ever!

Remember, the players and coaches are not the only ones who want/need personalized jerseys. Don’t forget about the parents, the grandparents and other fans. This is a great opportunity to consider even if you don’t get the team or league business.

You can keep Thermo-FILM numbers on hand, available in kits or by the pack. You’re ready to personalize on demand.
