It’s always fun to see a Hotronix heat press hard at work, like this picture tweeted by @DrewGoldfarb on February 26, 2015 from a #FlaPanthers game.  Heat printing is perfect for situations like this, where new players are added to a team during the season. With a heat press, you’re just seconds away from a personalized jersey. We’ve been providing NHL merchandisers with licensed player  name and number kits for many years. We also found another interesting link to Stahls’ on the internet earlier this week. On the website Quora, where people can post questions and answers to those questions, we found this article. It appears that someone asked about the use of collegiate lettering and Archie D’Cruz answered with a rather lengthy explanation that included the history of Stahls’ and our grandfather A.C. Stahl’s contributions to the world of athletic lettering. (Thanks to @ErichCampbell from Black Duck Inc. for sharing with us on Twitter) One inaccuracy in the article is that the old fashioned kick press pictured is actually a heat press. It isn’t. But most of the other information is true and we believe the author culled the information from other sources on the web, such as this video about the history of Stahls’. If you have time this weekend, take a look at the video. It was put together back in 2007 and re-watching it was fantastic to hear our mother Ricki’s voice and see her recorded testimony about her part in making Stahls’ the company that it is today. We miss you Mom but know you are looking down on all of us.
