Choice of Backing:

Our U.S.-patented formula prevents broken threads and gummed-up needles. Repositionable. Perfect for 2-color applications and Kiss Cutting. Must be sewn to prevent fraying.
  • POLYBACK — The thermal adhesive backing provides stability for cutting and sewing on garments. The polyester-based coating has no PVC and can be cut on plotters, dies, lasers or even hand-cut. Must be sewn to prevent fraying.
  • PERMANENT — Heat seal adhesive designed to be laser-cut and heat-pressed onto garments without sewing. This non-PVC adhesive will not burn from laser cutting while it simultaneously prevents fraying.
  • PSA PERMANENT — The #1 choice for laser cutters. It can be used for no-sew applications or it can be embroidered onto garments as an appliqué. Perfect for Kiss Cutting 2-color designs. Repositionable. Works with all laser cutters and applications.
  • UNCOATED — No adhesive backing. Just the fabric.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What Is Tackle 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.

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

A: Yes, with a 60° blade it cuts clean on both the PSA and the PSA Permanent Twill.

Q: Does The PSA Adhesive Gum Up Sewing Needles?

A: Absolutely not. Our proprietary adhesives feature a needle glide additive designed to sew without gumming. Sharp needles work better than ballpoint needles.

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

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