Product Details

Our proprietary 51″ PSA Sports Twill features a clear Mylar backing and a proprietary, low tack peel-and-stick adhesive (PS960 51″ PSA) that holds the applique in place for sewing onto garments. Our U.S.-patented formula prevents broken threads and gummed-up needles due to its needle glide additive. Repositionable; it can be removed as necessary to get the perfect alignment for applique embroidery. Great for 2-color layer applications and Kiss Cutting. NOTE: Must be sewn to prevent fraying and for the permanency of the design to withstand several wash cycles. As the manufacturer, we offer Tackle Twill in more colors than anyone else. Available in 40 colors — White, Tan, Cream, Black, Gray, Eagle Gray, Charcoal Gray, Cyan, Quebec, Cobalt, Columbia, Navy Blue, Royal Blue, Dark Royal, Lilac, Purple, Pink, Neon Pink, Greek Pink, Red, Devil Red, Cardinal Red, Maroon, 49er Burgundy, Brown, Shark Teal, Neon Green, Kelly Green, Dark Green, Orange, Burnt Orange, Texas Orange, Safety Orange, Tennessee Orange, Gold, Old Gold, Light Gold, Vegas Gold, Maize and Neon Yellow. Compare that to Dalco Athletic’s 17 colors and Stahls’ 16 colors.

We sell more PSA than any other type of adhesive-backed Tackle Twill, including Polyback, Pressure Sensitive PSA, Permanent and PSA Permanent. PSA Sports Twill is our registered name for Tackle Twill fabric with a Pressure Sensitive Adhesive (PSA) adhesive backing, which is commonly referred to as “Sticky Back” or peel-and-stick, and competes against Stahls’ CAD-CUT® Pressure Sensitive Poly-TWILL in the marketplace. Sold in 1 yard increments up to 50 yards in widths of 16.5″ or 51″ — click here to view the 16.5″ version of this product.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What Is PSA Sports Twill?

A: 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. Our Pressure Sensitive Adhesive (PSA) version features a low-tack adhesive backing (PS960 51″ PSA) for placement onto garments. This adhesive system is often referred to as “Sticky Back” or peel-and-stick. Repositionable; it can be removed as necessary to get the perfect alignment for applique embroidery. NOTE: PSA must be sewn down onto the garment(s).

Q: Can This Product Be Layered?

Yes. It can be layered 2 or 3 layers thick with Sports Twill or Metallic Twill or another applique material like Sports Felt for multicolor designs. We recommend a maximum of 3 layers as 4 or more layers can be too thick to heat apply.

Q: Is the PSA Sports Twill PVC-Free?

A: Both our Sports Twill and proprietary adhesives are 100% free of PVCs.

Q: Does PSA Sports Twill Feature An Adhesive Backing?

A: PSA’s thermal adhesive backing (PS960 51″ PSA) 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. (View Adhesive Backing Options)

Q: Does The PS960 51″ PSA Adhesive Gum Up Sewing Needles?

A: Our proprietary 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.

Q: Can I Cut PSA Sports Twill On A Tabletop Plotter?

A: Tabletop plotters aren’t 51″ wide, so the material will need to be cut down first. However, once properly sized, the fabric cuts clean on all desktop cutters including Cricut and Silhouette Cameo. All forms of cutting work on the PSA Sports Twill — laser, plotter, flat-bed plotter, die cutting and shearing.

Q: What Blade Should I Use To Cut PSA Sports Twill?

A: A 60° blade works best for cutting PSA Sports Twill. On some machines it’s called the “thick” blade.

Q: Do I Have To Sew The PSA Sports Twill Design After Cutting It?

A: Yes. If you are looking to heat press the garment after sewing, we recommend our PSA Permanent Sports Twill or Permanent Sports Twill instead of the PSA.

Q: How Long Does PSA Sports Twill Last On The Garment?

A: We have tested this material up to 50 wash and dry cycles in a home laundry environment without fraying, cracking or peeling. PSA Sports Twill is sewn down onto garments, so it should last as long as the garment itself.

Q: Can I Use PSA Sports Twill To Embroider Custom Patches?

A: Yes. The poly-backed PSA Sports Twill works perfectly for embroidering patches.
