Our big day on the ice with the Detroit Red Wings Alumni wasn’t our only involvement with the NHL this past weekend. A team of 8 people from Stahls’ Decorating Fulfillment center was busy printing NHL All-Star jerseys all weekend at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. According to Carl Agosta, who sent me all these photos, “We heat printed close to 3,000 jerseys this weekend, practically selling out the stock on hand.” Our team was set up in the concourse, allowing fans, VIPs, players’ family members and just about anyone willing to shell out up to $225 for a custom jersey to have a shirt heat printed on demand. Orders were placed via touchscreen computer systems powered by Cadworx (Cadworxlive.com) software and the average wait time for a custom shirt was usually around 10 minutes. “I’ve been doing this for many, many years,” reported Carl, and this was the fastest, smoothest execution of our custom jersey heat printing service I’ve ever seen.” Everything flowed like clockwork. Approximately 1600 of the jerseys sold were pre-decorated at our custom fulfillment center Stahls’ DFC in Masontown, Pennsylvania. The remaining jerseys were all decorated and customized on site at the Bridgestone Arena. Keep in mind that ALL the decoration elements on the jerseys were heat applied using Hotronix heat presses. They featured screen printed no-sew Perma-Twill numbers and digitally printed no-sew Perma-TWILL® Tackle Twill patches and no-sew Perma-TWILL® Tackle Twill lettering for the names.

Hotronix Air Fusions were key in getting the heat printing done with ease. It is the ideal high-volume production machine.

Thanks for all your hard work at the NHL All-Star event. Carl said it was the smoothest, fastest heat printing he has witnessed in a long time.

You don't often run across 14-letter last names, but thanks to the ability to custom cut any name in no-sew twill, personalization with any length name is possible.

Six letter last names also, no problem. Carl estimates that 25% of the jerseys sold featured fan names, the rest featured favorite NHL players. Fans come from all over the country to watch their favorite players in this event.

    I am looking for tackle twill for both the white and yellow 2017 all star jerseys. Can you create the 4in sleeve, name plate, and 10in back numbers in the mosaic black that they were using this all star game, and how much.

    Thanks Lee
