TwillUSA was borne from an adhesives company founded by John Mahn Sr in the 1970s called General Fabric Fusing (GFF) located in Cincinnati, Ohio. As the business expanded, it eventually became Specialty Adhesive Film after heat-applied HTV Flock and Sports Film was invented for the athletic apparel market. Along the way, John Mahn Jr. completed his master’s degree in Chemical Engineering and joined the company. The Father & Son duo of inventors continued to innovate, eventually being awarded 26 U.S. Patents. Their invention for a heat-applied Sports Film became the #1 product worldwide for decorating athletic jerseys. Fabric letting has traditionally been sewn onto jerseys, but inventions by TwillUSA in the area of pressure-sensitive and permanent adhesive formulations allowed for decorating those athletic jerseys for the purpose of identifying player names, numbers and teams. This fabric became known as “Tackle Twill” because of its durability and use in full-contact sports, and TwillUSA takes its name from that fabric. Now, more than 40 years later, we manufacture and distribute more than 30 different HTV materials and fabrics in 100+ unique colors, including:

    • Sports Twill
    • Metallic Twill
    • HTV Flex Film
    • HTV Sports Film
    • HTV Sports Glitter
    • HTV Foil & Hologram

    • Sports Felt
    • Reflective Materials
    • Pre-Cut Letters & Numbers
    • Fashion Fabrics & Adhesive
