As the new school year kicks into gear, so does the need for emblematic apparel celebrating a sport team or mascot. For a fresh look offer a 3-D effect choosing a laser-created appliqué. It’s a decorative technique Vantage Apparel (asi/93390)recommends for hoodies and fleece.

“Tech Appliqué is a creative embellishment option produced on the laser machine using a lightweight, flexible, foam-type fabric for lettering or simple logo designs,” says Gina Barreca, director of marketing at Vantage Apparel. “You can choose a matching or contrasting tack-down stitch color to create a variety of looks. An emerging trend for sport-related logos is to use the tech appliqué to create a border (or outer layer) effect for standard twill appliqué.”
