Express Names to Personalize Custom Apparel
Heat printing is all about being able to print on-demand for your customers by personalizing blank apparel with a person’s name, group name, company name, and so on. There are many different ways from embroidery to heat transfer vinyl (HTV) that decorators use to personalize t-shirts, sweatshirts, pants and bags. There are pros and cons to all decoration methods. But if you don’t own an embroidery machine or vinyl cutter, and if you don’t want to spend the time and energy weeding excess material away from the personalized names, give Express Names™ a try.
These name strips use screen printed plastisol ink to print individual names, words or phrases in various sizes colors and fonts. The Express Names™ are cut into strips for fast and easy application with your heat seal machine.
From personalizing player uniforms and accessories, cheerleader dance bags, and spirit wear, there are many different uses for Express Names. Let’s take a look at some examples of what you can decorate with Express Names.
Sport teams make up the majority of personalized apparel that decorators will heat print for. Express Names can be used for Perfect Pairing with stock Numbers for one step application on sport jerseys. Personalize coaches shirts, volunteers shirts, warm-up gear, and player bags with pre-spaced player names.
Individual players not only want their name on their shirt but their number too. For small Numbers to be placed on shorts or inside of clip art, Express Names can be used to accomplish that.
Express Names are available in 1, 2, 2.5 and 3 inch letter height sizes. They can be ordered straight across, arched or vertical. The smaller 1″ size is perfect for personalizing a sleeve, left chest, or to add a personalized name to a sport bag like below.
Vertical Express Names give more customization for your custom apparel, especially for pant legs and sleeves. Don’t forget using the vertical names for unique placement like a a vertical name down the front of the shirt or along side numbers like the image below.
