What material is the jersey?
I think the colours did bleed through the transfer. Im attaching a picture so you can get a better description of what I'm talking about.I've pressed numbers and logos on soccer jerseys for a bunch of years now. I use stahl's thermogrip and haven't had many issues. Just watch out when doing some like the barca jersey as those are usually sublimated and I've found that if you use the wrong material the colors will bleed through transfer. That might also be why the material did not stay on so well this time around.
This Barcelona top is retail item.Some polyester is treated and heat press vinyl will not adhere.......You need to ask your uniform supplier for more information.......if they are "retail" items you may not be able to get an answer or the answer may be a guess and/or wrong....
Sorry I'm new to this can u please explain what you mean by treated.If it is treated nothing is going to stick. That looks like the problem
Thank you very much for this information very handy but I thought that with football jerseys that are blank on the back you always could get name and number done because they do it them selves at the retails shop like Adidas they have the heat press in store.Some materials will have a "treatment" on them to prevent soiling in a retail environment....Sometimes it is "Teflon" or a similar finish....If this is the case, there is little you can do to make a transfer and/or heat press vinyl adhere....
I usually use Siser Easy Weed. But, for these jerseys, I would try Thermo-Film, Thermo-GRIP or Super Film.Q: What product is best for blocking dye migration?
A: Thermo-FILM® is the #1 recommended product for inhibiting dye migration on sports uniforms. Thermo-GRIP® and Thermo-FLOCK® offer superior restriction of dye migration as well.
All have a special adhesive that inhibits the dye from penetrating through to the surface of the film or flock fibers.
For full color designs, try Sub Block. It's specifically made to restrict dye migration from sublimated polyester fabrics.
Thats wonderful news i will certainly be trying this material because SISER EASYWEED sure aint doing it for me either on retail Football tops like the Barcelona one. I have tried it on other football tops for children's football schools and it has worked.According to Stahls:

Talk to Stahls and see what they think.
I did this a couple of times and what I did is use vinyl remover over where the vinyl is going to be pressed.I think the colours did bleed through the transfer. Im attaching a picture so you can get a better description of what I'm talking about.
Picture 1 is the transfer i done using SISER VINYL on 100% polyester.
Picture 2 is what i would like to be using as that seems to be the good stuff but what transfer is it?
What do you think I'm doing wrong?
