Product Details

Heat Transfer Vinyl (HTV) Sports Film has been our #1 seller since it was introduced nearly 40 years ago, replacing Felt letters and numbers as an inexpensive solution for full-contact sports. It is a tried-and-true solution for athletic jerseys and sports apparel that stretches a minimal amount. It can be layered and textured. Easy to cut. Easy to weed. Repositionable. Adheres to most fabrics except for nylon and leather. Available in 24 colors — White, Black, Gray, Baby Blue, Light Royal, Columbia Blue, Royal Blue, Navy Blue, Purple, Pink, Pastel Pink, Red, Cardinal Red, Maroon, Brown, Shark Teal, Neon Green, Kelly Green, Dark Green, Orange, Gold, Old Gold, Vegas Gold and Maize (Yellow). NOTE: If stretchiness is an important feature for you, please consider our HTV Flex Film instead.

Sports Film is similar to Siser EasyWeed® in many respects, but our product is a thicker, more durable material. As such, we believe it is the better choice for full-contact sports like football, hockey and rugby. It can be washed and dried up to 100 times — even dry-cleaned — compared to Siser’s HTV, which has been tested up to 50 washes and cannot be dry-cleaned. Our HTV Sports Film features a slightly thicker adhesive, which resists dye migration and abrasion. It can also be textured with an embossing paper to simulate the look of Leather (Pebble Grain) or Tackle Twill (Twill Grain) fabric, or dulled to have an appearance similar to screen-printing. Additionally, our product can be cut using a 45° or 60° blade, whereas Siser recommends a 45° blade only. NOTE: Texturing HTV Vinyl is a two-step process. The embossing paper is sold separately.

Siser EasyWeed® curls into a ball when it is pulled off of the carrier, whereas our HTV Sports Film lays flat. Further, our product is available without a carrier and can be used to make Number Packs, which is significantly less expensive than individually cut numbers or letters using traditional Iron-On Vinyl. It also applies in less time (as little as 6 seconds) compared to competing products. As a “Made in America” product, Sports Film is tried-and-true HTV, and it is approximately 30% less expensive than Siser EasyWeed®.

Sports Film is our registered name for Heat Transfer Vinyl, which is commonly referred to as HTV, Iron-On Vinyl, Heat Press Vinyl, Crafters Vinyl, and competes against Siser’s EasyWeed® and Stahl’s CAD-CUT® Thermo-FILM®. Compared to Siser’s EasyWeed®, our HTV Sports Film is 20% wider (18″ vs 15″), which results in 108 square inches of extra material, meaning you can cut two 8″ letters or numbers side by side. This product is a laminate of polyurethane (PU) and polyester hot-melt adhesive specifically designed for use with textiles. Sold by the yard in increments up to 50 yards.

Why buy from JOANN, Hobby Lobby, Michaels® or other middlemen online when you can purchase direct from the manufacturer? Twill USA has dozens of Heat Transfer Materials in hundreds of colors, warehouses in Nevada and Indiana for fast delivery, plus $10.00 flat-rate shipping on all orders.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How Thick Is The HTV Sports Film?

A: Heat Transfer Vinyl (HTV) Sports Film is a laminate of polyurethane (PU) and polyester adhesive. Our Sports Film has a thickness of about 7-Mils compared to 4-Mils for our HTV Flex Film. At 7-Mils thick, it is strong and durable enough to be used in full-contact sports, yet it has some degree of stretchability. NOTE: If stretchiness is an important feature for you, please consider our HTV Flex Film instead.

Q: Why Use HTV Vinyl Sports Film?

A: It’s a decades-old, tried-and-true solution for athletic jerseys. It has been our #1 seller since its introduction nearly 40 years ago, replacing Felt numbers and screen-printing. HTV Sports Film allows for names and numbers for entire teams without cutting a single screen. Additionally, it can be weeded easily without snapping or breaking, and minimizes dye migration. Because it is so easy to cut and weed, Sports Film is often used to make bulk Iron-On Letters and Numbers via die-cutting or water jet cutting. Once cut, it can literally be ironed onto garments.

Q: Is HTV Vinyl Sports Film Stretchable?

A: It does stretch a minimal amount. However, if stretchiness is an important feature for you, please consider our HTV Flex Film instead. Its elasticity has been measured as DOUBLE the stretchability of Sports Film.

Q: Can The HTV Vinyl Sports Film Be Layered?

A: We usually recommend Flex Film for layering as it’s a thinner HTV Vinyl (4-Mils). However, if you’re partial to HTV Sports Film (7-Mils), you can put 2 or 3 layers on top of each other for multicolor designs. It can also be layered on top of Sports Twill or Sports Felt and Fashion Fabrics. NOTE: Cannot be layered on top of Metallic Twill as Metallic Twill is reverse cut.

Q: How Easy Is HTV Vinyl Sports Film To Weed?

A: The Mylar carrier has a low tack adhesive so that only the area you are trying to weed peels off. Any part of the design that accidentally peels off can be pressed back down. This durable film doesn’t break apart easily so it can usually be pulled off in one piece. Peels warm or cold.

Q: Can The HTV Vinyl Sports Film Be Textured?

A: We offer a variety of re-usable silicon sheets. The most popular is Pebble Grain that simulates the look leather. The Twill Grain is also popular, where the HTV Sports Film looks like Tackle Twill fabric. Contact our Customer Service Team to order these specialty films.

Q: What Does The HTV Vinyl Sports Film Stick To?

A: HTV Sports Film adheres to most fabrics except for Nylon and Leather. It works well with all Acrylics, 100% Cotton, Polyester Knits, Polyester Mesh, 100% Polyester, Poly-Cotton Blends, Poly Form and Cotton Caps. Our HTV Sports Grip is a similar product with a slightly modified hot-melt adhesive that is ideally suited for Nylon fabrics.

Q: Is It Available In Number Packs And Letter Packs?

A: Yes. Our lay-flat HTV Sports Film numbers (and number packs) are easily handled and positionable. It can purchased with or without our proprietary adhesive as well.

Q: Can I Cut HTV Sports Film On A Tabletop Plotter?

A: HTV Vinyl Sports Film cuts clean on all desktop cutters, including Cricut and Silhouette Cameo. All forms of cutting work — laser, plotter, flat-bed plotter, die cutting and shearing.

Q: Which Adhesive Backing Does HTV Sports Film Have?

A: HTV Sport Film’s thermal adhesive backing (P600 3-Mil 49.5″ Polyback) provides stability for cutting and pressing onto garments. Its polyester-based coating has no PVC and can be cut on plotters, dies, lasers or even hand-cut, and it adheres to most fabrics except for Nylon and Leather. An added benefit is that our HTV Sports Film can be dry-cleaned.
