Not Your Father’s Football Jersey

Slippery Rock will take on Mercyhurst University on Saturday at 1 p.m. in the Big House, wearing their "warrior" uniforms featuring metallic/reflective numbers.

Slippery Rock will take on Mercyhurst University on Saturday at 1 p.m. in the Big House, wearing their “warrior” uniforms featuring metallic/reflective numbers.

You can’t just wear any old football jersey anymore. Especially if you’re going to be making an appearance in the Big House, also known as the football stadium at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. According to the Michigan Daily, the Slippery Rock football team chose to NOT wear their  normal green and white uniforms for an upcoming game against Mercyhurst University in order to respect the rivalry of the Michigan Wolverines versus Michigan State. And probably also because they just look a bit more fierce. We’re seeing reflective and metallic numbers in use on fields all over this fall season. Show us your most elaborate football jerseys.

Pink Outs Are Still Happening!

Thanks for sending in your photos of projects you've completed in October.

Thanks for sending in your photos of projects you’ve completed in October.

Pink outs are still going on at sports fields, gymnasiums and 5K routes across the country. So there’s still time for anyone with a heat press to promote breast cancer awareness. We’ve shown some of the pink heat printing options in previous blogs, but we recently added a new way to spread awareness with CAD-CUT Awareness Ribbons. These are CAD-CUT Designs available in 6 piece increments in select materials/colors in 4 different sizes. They come in the following materials in packs of six, in Thermo-FLOCK, Glitter Flake or Fashion Film. Sizes available: 3,4,6, and 8 inches  Prices starting at $8.40 per pack. Please note that this product is not available through our normal online ordering procedures. You must  call 800.478.2457 to order. (Like in the olden days!) For those of you who are looking for other great decorating ideas, look at the projects sent in to our Stahls’ Facebook page by some very creative heat printers. We really appreciate it when you share your ideas.

Heat Printing at Ironman

Print Friendly
Ironman1

Bill had two Hotronix Cap Presses hard at work during the Kona-based Ironman event that took place on October 11.

The first Ironman Triathlon took place in 1978, when  U.S. Naval Commander John Collins and his wife Judy proposed combining Oahu’s 2.4 mile swim race, 112 mile bike race, and 26.2 mile marathon. At the first race there were only 15 competitors. On October 11, 2014, over 2,000 athletes were on hand in Kona, Hawaii to embark on this 140.6 mile test of endurance. And this year, for the first time, there was also a heat printing personalization station, organized by Bill Garrells of Individual Performance Apparel or IPA. Ironman has a great selection of branded merchandise and Bill was on hand to personalize hats, shirts, shorts and more with custom transfers and custom transfer numbers from Transfer Express. “Competitors wanted numbers on their hats and gear, and everyone wanted to personalize with something that said, “I was here in Kona’, on October 11, 2014,” Bill reported. Since most of the Ironman merchandise just features the IM brand, Bill was able to offer “Ironman approved” graphics for on the spot heat printing. Congratulations to all the finishers!

Bill enjoyed meeting and speaking with Scott Rigsby, the first double amputee to compete in the Hawaii Ironman, which he did back in 2007. This year he didn't compete but was on hand to support other disabled athletes.
