Can PSA Permanent Sports Twill Be Layered?
Absolutely! This product can be used as a background, foreground or middleground layer(s) with fabrics like Sports Twill or Metallic Twill or Sports Felt which can be layered 2 or 3 layers thick for multicolor designs. Cannot be layered on top of specialty films like HTV Sports Film, HTV Flex Film, HTV Glitter, HTV Flock or HTV Grip. However, we recommend specialty films for overlapping onto fabrics (e.g. HTV Flock overlapping the outer edge of Fashion Fabric).
Is the PSA Permanent Sports Twill Free of PVCs?
The 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.
What Applications Is PSA Permanent Sports Twill Used For?
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 I Cut PSA Permanent Sports Twill On A Tabletop Plotter?
This fabric cuts clean on all desktop cutters including Cricut and Silhouette Cameo. All forms of cutting work on the Permanent Sports Twill — laser, plotter, flat-bed plotter, die cutting and shearing.
Which Blade Should I Use To Cut PSA Permanent Sports Twill?
60° blades work best for cutting 16.5″ PSA Permanent Sports Twill. On some machines it’s called the “thick” blade.
Does PSA Permanent Sports Twill Feature An Adhesive Backing?
How Long Does PSA Permanent Sports Twill Last On The Garment?
We have tested this material up to 50 wash and dry cycles in a home laundry environment without fraying, cracking or peeling.
Can I Use PSA Permanent Sports Twill To Embroider Custom Patches?
Yes. The PSA Permanent Sports Twill works perfectly for embroidering patches or emblems.
Does The 16.5″ PS965 PSA Permanent Adhesive Gum Up Sewing Needles?
Our proprietary Heat Press 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.
Do I Have To Sew The PSA Permanent Sports Twill Design After Cutting It?
PSA Permanent is the ultimate HTV Twill product, as it can be heat-applied, sewn onto the garment, or a combination of both on multicolor designs.
Can I Sublimate Onto PSA Permanent Sports Twill? Which Tackle Twill Product Is Best For Sublimation?
No. We do not recommend sublimating onto Tackle Twill with an adhesive backing 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 up” 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).
