Tackle Twill at AST Sports

What is Tackle Twill: Tackle Twill, or applique, involves sewing down a number, letter or design made by cutting pieces of one or more materials and applying them to the surface of another material usually with a nylon twill. Basically, tackle twill begins with a “patch” of sorts that is applied to the jersey, shirt, hat or other garment that is then sewn to the material for a more rugged finish.

Tackle Twill is the most popular for both professional sports teams and school athletic organizations. Look closely at your favorite football, baseball, or hockey player’s jersey. Also look at many of the jerseys fans wear when watching the game. These jerseys have most likely been decorated with tackle twill names and numbers.

Advantages of Tackle Twill:
This type of applique offers a bold look to your garment, but the stitching count is lower than embroidery, thus is more affordable while creating a three-dimensional work of art.

Tackle twill is available in variety of colors and logos either custom or stock just as embroidery is. Tackle Twill can also be combined with embroidery, heat transfer and or chenille for a truly custom look.
