Iron on transfer type football badge

If you have a set of football kits or are just about to order your football kits you are left with the question, where do I go for football shirt badge printing.

The most economical way to print badges onto football shirts is by using iron on transfers for the badges.

Direct heat applied transfers/football iron on transfers

Iron on transfers are both economical to buy and can be applied using an iron although a heat press is always the better option. Iron on transfers are a popular way of printing football club badges to a football shirt. To further customise a football kit iron on transfers are used to produce player names as well as numbers that go onto football shirts. You can find more information about printing football shirt names for team kits by clicking this link.

We specialise in iron on football badges using iron on transfers which will print in full colour that allows for all colours and shading to be printed and can be very cost effective. This the best way to replicate a printing of a football badge exactly how it looks. As well as full colour iron on transfers we can produce a single colour badge option.Even professional football clubs are turning to this type of football shirt printing. Have a look at their kits, do not be surprised to see a white printed badge onto a dark coloured football kit.

Iron on transfer or heat applied transfer badges can be supplied or we can apply them.

If you already have a set of football kits and need football shirt printing we can help.
Our iron on badges, players name and number can be supplied to you so you apply them to the football kits. But if you do want to do it yourself you can supply us your football kits and we can apply the badges directly to your football kits. If you are in the process of buying a set of football kits your supplier may offer this type of shirt badge printing.

Printed sponsors logos

Many football teams have the sponsors logo printed onto their football shirt as well. Sponsors logos are larger in size than football badges and are generally applied on the front of the football shirt below the football badge.

Again the heat applied sponsors logos can be printed directly to the football kit if you can supply to us or can be supplied to you as football iron on transfers.

Sew on Embroidered badges football badges

Although not exactly football shirt badge printing, embroidered football badges are the traditional way of creating football and sports badges. Embroidered badges are made up of stitches, the colour produced in the badge is through coloured stitches. Many suppliers of embroidered badges will charge by how many stitches make up the badge and how many colours of stitches are required.

We are different, because we specialise in quality short run embroidery we give one price for all.

There are certain limitations with embroidered badges. One is that small details cannot be reproduced always (although our embroidery is so good we can include details other embroiderers cannot). The other limitation is that because colours are reproduced through stitches they can only be solid colours and cannot show shading, tints or gradients.

Sew on embroidered badges are supplied to our customers so they can sew on to their football kits.

We produce sew on embroidered badges which are the same quality as sewing directly onto a shirt but is encapsulated as a sew on badge or patch with what is known as a merrow (overlocked) border or a heat cut edge.

Iron on embroidered badges (also known as patches)

Iron on embroidered badges or iron on embroidered patches are exactly the same badge as the sew on versions. The only difference is that it has an iron on backing to allow the badges to be ironed onto shirts. These badges can be ordered and then used on football kits, training wear and leisure wear like polo shirts.
