How to Decorate Football Uniforms & Apparel

Decorate the complete football player and fans.

Football uniforms aren't like a lot of other sports uniforms; in addition to lettering for names, numbers in several different sizes are needed for the front, back, and sleeves/shoulders of football jerseys. Plus, selecting a durable material that can withstand player contact is important. Don’t forget the practice clothing, spirit and fan wear.

Material Recommendation

Tips

  • Check with appropriate division or league to verify numbering and lettering regulations
  • Use a heat transfer material that blocks dye migration for dark-colored and polyester uniforms
  • Use a layout board to help with alignment when using pre-cuts
