Little Detail, Big Reward

Sometimes it’s the little detail that makes the apparel. With fall sports in play, school teams and booster clubs seek simple ways to feature their crests and mascots.

Penn Emblem Co. (asi/77120) makes it easy with sports patches that can be customized in any style or color. Made of fade-resistant threads and quality backings, these emblems are durable and ideal for outdoor or indoor athletic events. They can be ironed or sewn onto jackets, jerseys or T-shirts. For a more traditional look, choose an embroidered poly twill patch. If applying a patch to performance apparel, consider PennTrans Transfers that are digitally printed in vibrant color and high definition. These heat transfers easily apply to a broad range of fabrics, including temperature-sensitive performance textiles. They allow for stretch and recovery to ensure long-term durability.

One of the most subtle, yet effective ways to create detail is with pocket embellishment. Dress up any T-shirt, sports jersey, sweatshirt or jacket with a Dalco Sport Pocket, a custom-printed dye sublimation pocket. Virtually any pattern or design can be created, from school mascots to Greek crests to corporate logos, and printed on a pocket measuring 4.5” wide x 5.1” tall. The pocket is made of 100% polyester and can be attached using a stitch file for sewing or heat applied with a heat-seal adhesive. It’s intended as a decorative look and can’t be used as a functional pocket. There’s a 10-piece minimum and additional quantities can be ordered in increments of five pieces.
