Has ANYONE USED VINYL TO PUT ONTO THE STADIUM SEATS? I found some seat cushions at "Spirit industries" just wondering if I'd melt the cushion or if I should just get them screen printed.
i have no idea but i too would like to know! I think that it would be able to be done. I think,but dont quote me. I have seen that you can cook a little slower to get the transfer to go on too some more colmplicated materials. but thats just what ive heard and in some cases seen
If the seat is cloth it will work. I know some are made of plastic for being rain repellent and this would not work well with a heat press( the melting seat would be messy). I would think you could use sign vinyl with great results though. I have sold many of them using sign vinyl. I have also embroidered and heat pressed the cloth ones. People like these seats with there team's name and there name too. .... JB
I grabbed one of them out of the box yesterday to play with. They are advertised as being made of 600 denier polyester. First thing I tried was some Oracal 651 sign vinyl. Not gonna happen, it just would not stick to the seat. I couldn't even get the release paper to peal off the decal.
Next up, I cut a piece of Eco Film Plus. When I grabbed the roll, I also noticed it had a sticker inside the other end of the tube that says Video Flex Extra but it doesn't have the pink layer like the roll of Video Flex Extra I have??? Anyway, I heat pressed that onto the seat and it looks like it will work. I used some scrap papers left over from transfers to block off around the design and I don't see any evidence of discoloration from the heat press.
I will probably try Easy Weed on the other side just to see what happens.

I'm PPAI & SAGE, not sure if you need to be a member to purchase from them, probably not. Heat pressing stadium cushions, not sure.
