Permanent Twill FAQs.
What Is Permanent Sports Twill?
Tackle Twill is a generic name for the fabric lettering used to decorate athletic jerseys. Originally used for football, it is a very tough, durable material now used on all sports and cheerleading uniforms. Our registered version of it is called Sports Twill. 16.5" Permanent Sports Twill is a heat seal product designed to be laser-cut and heat-pressed onto garments without sewing. Similar to PSA Permanent except it does not have the peel-and-stick component. Many customers use this material to create patches and emblems for work shirts or caps, and it is especially popular for embellishing hats with the initials of a city (i.e. NYC). Other uses include player names and numbers for sports jerseys, or as the background for multicolor, multi-material designs. NOTE: Green transfer tape is necessary for applying player names, otherwise you'll need to measure the placement of each letter.
Can This Product Be Layered?
This product can be used as a background layer only, and should NOT be used as the middle layer or foreground material. If layering is important, please consider our Pressure Sensitive PSA or Polyback instead, which can be layered 2 or 3 layers thick for multicolor designs.
Is Permanent Sports Twill PVC-Free?
Permanent Sports Twill and our proprietary Hot-Melt Adhesives are 100% free of Polyvinyl Chloride ("PVC"). PVC contains dangerous chemical additives that can be harmful to your child's health.
Can I Cut Permanent Twill On A Tabletop Plotter?
Tackle Twill fabric cuts clean on all desktop cutters including Cricut and Silhouette Cameo. All forms of cutting work on Permanent Sports Twill — laser, plotter, flat-bed plotter, die cutting and shearing.
What Blade Should I Use To Cut Permanent Sports Twill?
60° blades work best for cutting Permanent Sports Twill. On some machines it's called the "thick" blade.
Does Permanent Sports Twill Have An Adhesive Backing?
Permanent's thermal adhesive backing (1.5-Mil P600 16.5" Polyback) completely seals the twill yarns and provides stability for cutting + sewing on garments. Its polyester-based coating has no PVC and can be cut on plotters, dies, lasers, or even hand-cut. This adhesive system is available separately for coating materials other than Tackle Twill.
How Long Will Permanent Sports Twill Last On Garments?
We have tested this material up to 50 wash and dry cycles without fraying, cracking or peeling. Permanent Sports Twill must be sewn down onto garments, so it should last as long as the garment itself.
Does The 1.5-Mil P600 Adhesive Gum Up Sewing Needles?
Our proprietary Hot-Melt Adhesives feature a needle glide additive designed to sew without gumming. Sharp needles work better than ballpoint needles. HINT: Coating the needle with silicone also helps to promote a clean stitch. All manners of stitching work well, including zig zag, satin, bean, and lockstitch.
Can I Use Permanent Sports Twill To Embroider Custom Patches?
Yes. The polyester-based Permanent Sports Twill works great for embroidering patches.
Do I Have To Sew The Permanent Sports Twill Design After Cutting It?
This is a heat seal product designed to be heat-pressed onto garments. If sewing is important, please consider our Pressure Sensitive PSA, Polyback or PSA Permanent instead, which can be sewn on or heat-pressed then sewn onto the garment, respectively.
Can I Sublimate Onto Permanent Twill? Which Tackle Twill Product Is Best For Sublimation?
No. We do not recommend sublimating onto Permanent Tackle Twill as the temperature required for sublimation is higher than the temperature at which the Hot-Melt Adhesive will activate. In our experience, this causes the glue to come through the surface of the print. Therefore, we recommend sublimating onto Uncoated Sports Twill first, then applying PS965 5-Mil PSA Permanent Adhesive afterwards, which allows for heat pressing or sewing the transfer onto the garment(s).
