Does anyone have a suggestion for which vinyl to use on polyester football jerseys? I tried a search but I wasnt real sure. Thanks for your response.

Unless they specifically say they are for nylon, most of the heat press vinyls should work on polyester and poly blends... I did a sample run with Eco Film, Eco Film Plus, Videoflex, Videoflex Extra and Easy Weed. All stuck to 100% poly jackets after numerous hot water washes and high heat dryer runs.

In the end, I went with Elastoflex transfers from Ace Transfer since I was making over 200 jackets in 2 colors and the amount of time to cut, weed and register/position that many pieces was too much.

Thanks for doing our homework for us!

I use Hotmark 70 for most stuff other than cotton. The hotmark will adhere to anything. I like to use Eco film for cotton garments. .... JB
