Numbers Not Just for Sport Uniforms

Filed in Apparel Ideas, Spirit Wear, Transfer Numbers by on April 15, 2015

If you have decorated team uniforms before then you’re no stranger to using our stock screen printed transfer numbers to apply to the fronts or backs or even sleeves of player uniforms. However, just because these heat transfer numbers are traditionally used for this type of application doesn’t mean there are not other customers that can benefit from the ease and durability that Transfer Express transfer numbers can provide.

Let’s take a look at a few examples of how we can utilize stock numbers for other purposes.

One of our favorite examples of using our stock transfer numbers is for displaying student graduation years on various school spirit apparel. Class of shirts and Senior shirts a big seller in the spring and fall and this is a different twist on the classic style class of shirts. We love this example from football cheerleaders wearing spirit shirts with their graduation year instead of a player number. Easy Prints® Numbers are easy to purchase for this use. If you have students graduating in 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018, all you need is the number 1 digit as well as number packs of 5, 6, 7 and 8!

Different sizes of stock numbers (4″, 6″, 8″, 10″) are available in a large variety of color options. This example shows the student graduation year on the hoodie pocket in the 4″ size.

Another example is to use stock transfer numbers for years of service. Whether it be for the military, local law enforcement or company gifts, adding the number of years of service an individual has invested into their profession onto a custom garment is a great way of recognizing and showing appreciation for their hard work. So the next time you create shirts for a company picnic or anniversary gift, suggest an add-on of numbers to increase the value of the apparel.

We are always inspired by those raising awareness for special causes by using custom apparel. We came across this idea for breast cancer awareness t-shirts that use stock numbers to display the number of years a survivor has been cancer free!

Add a number such as this 4" stock number to the sleeve to show the number of years cancer free.

Spring and Summer wedding season is surrounded by numbers which is a reason why this idea is one of our favorites! Bachelor and Bachelorette parties get together for many events before the big day and custom t-shirts are perfect for bridal parties. The example below shows using numbers for a bachelorette party. When lined up, the numbers on the shirts represent the date when the couple met or got engaged and the wedding date.

Another way to use numbers for the bridal party is numbering by the number of years that individual has known the bride or groom.
