Hi,
What is the best vinyl to use on football mesh? (and where do you buy it?) I have an order for 14 jerseys but i don't want to use something that will peel. I had some difficutly using thermoflex plus vinyl with the solid polyester portion of the a (top back where name is) Wondering what is best for both the numbers and the names on the back of the jersey

Also, what should I charge for this job? I have no idea. customer wants numbers on front and back and last names plus a logo onthe sleeves from artwork he will provide. i can use heatpress or screenprinting equipment or both. Thanks in advance for your help!

Logos for a jersey can be any size but a left chest logo is typically around 4.5" x 4.5". I use eco film or opaque solutions if they need multiple colors and I will be printing. I have had great results with both. We charge $6 a sqft for eco and $9 a sqft for opaque. The total cost depends on how much of the film they will be using. Hope this helps.

thanks guys! appreciate the feedback. I recieved the jerseys last night and noticed that the steel mesh jersey has very small slits as opposed to the regular mesh or even the pro mesh I've seen on other jerseys. Wonder if the Coastal Business supply "easy weed" vinyl would suffice. Although you can see the impression of the mesh on the vinyl, it seems to stick and hold up pretty good on a regular basketball jersey. What do you guys think?

..."Thermo Flex Sport" designed for application on polyester mesh.
Product Description...
S-SP-ThermoFlex Sport
For lettering open-mesh athletic uniforms

ThermoFlex® Sport is a durable thick film material designed to bridge the gaps in open-mesh athletic jersey.

You can heat press ThermoFlex® Sport at a relatively low (300° F - 320° F) temperature and short dwell time (8-10 seconds), which minimizes dye migration from colored polyester jersey mesh. Ideal for nylon jerseys as well.

For the Name/number drop and 4 locations we would be at $35 plus the jersey so something around $60-$80.

Number on back 10", front 8", name 2" high, sleeve 3-4".
