 Beware of colors
Reviewed by Arber Como 4/24/2019 6:11:40 PM
Owns a doesnt matter Heat Press

The Colors do not represent the actual color it is honestly one of the most infuriating things. I order neon green and it more like the yellow than the green. Just beware honestly you guys are a big enough company to put some accurate pictures. You make all these videos but cant accurately display the color of the vinyl. PS: i ordered the neon green fashion film which was just like what it said it would so i though hmmmmm maybe they are accurate than i order the sport lite and nope. Thanks thank you.

We apologize for the confusion on the colors. Unfortunately computer monitors display colors differently so it's not an exact representation. We do have physical color swatches available and they are free of charge so you can see exactly what you will get when you order.

Sport film lite has become my go to. It's in between a premium plus and fashion film and thermo film feel. Press really good you can't even tell its vinyl. Very good quality.

 Awesome to work with!

I printed using big 3 inch letters for a design, and it was such an awesome experience. Easy to cut, easy to weed, and easy to peel! Print is soft and washes and dries well!

 No good for smaller images 1/4" line thickness
Reviewed by Andy Snaza 3/17/2016 12:11:02 PM

Works fine for larger jobs but smaller ones this is no good for at all. Called into Stahls to see what the issue was when doing a smaller logo and was told it is not recommended for that due to little to no tackiness on backing. Would be really helpful if that was listed in the tips or application section. States to maintain at least an 1/8" and I am at around a 1/4" and it is terrible.

 Super easy to weed!

I just used this for several work out tank tops. This product is great for one color jobs on lightweight garments. Doing fine details will probably not work out so well because the backing is not super tacky. Really nice feel on the garment and really easy to weed.

 Better than Siser for Small Lettering
Reviewed by Natalie 11/15/2011 11:26:57 AM

I ran out of Siser EasyWeed on an order and since I needed to order some Premium Plus, I decided to try the SportFilm Lite in place of EW. 40 cuts of a phrase in an unfriendly fancy font and it was a breeze to weed! Although the backer is not as sticky as EW, it isn't necessary since it weeded so well that I lost very few dots or letters on the pull. I will choose SportFilm Lite over EW for future detailed lettering.
