I am looking for some insite out there about Racing suits. A customer called and wanted me to embroider on his sons fire suit and I told him that with the needle going through the suit it would void the safety that it holds. Instead I am thinking that we may be able to use some type of heat transfer that will work. Does anyone have any ideas. I sent Stahl's a message last week but I have not heard back from them. I need a large one on the back 16" x 2" and one about 6" W x 1-1 1/2" H to go on the left chest. Can anyone suggest what will work for this?

Thanks,
Michele

Embroider the design as a patch and heat press or hand stitch them on.
I had thought about that but wasn't sure of how long it would last on one of those suits. He said it only had to last 3 months but I don't want to put something on there that will come off easily. If it is sewn on that would void the heat protection as well, correct?

Check out this forum topic. Lots of opinions and maybe could help give you some ideas.

"Decorating" your racing suit. (Page 1) — LeMons Tech — The 24 Hours of LeMons Forums

Some say use cotton thread to sew it on, so in case of a fire, it burns off first then the patch will just fall off. Some say use nomex thread. Some say don't iron it on as it could create a hotspot on the suit.....

I would check with officials just to make sure no one get's DQ'd and get their professional opinion.
