Athletic Wear Lettering Options
Cisco has developed a national reputation for the quality of our graphics and lettering capabilities. We can offer professional quality screen-printing, swiss embroidery, tackletwill and appliqué work and sometimes combine several of these processes to achieve the look that you want. We can use your design or create one for you and you may even approve a final copy before anything is actually printed.
A word about our lettering capabilities:
- We use only the finest quality inks, threads and twill.
- We specialize in "athletic" lettering. We know the look that you want.
- Individual names are screen-printed or tackletwill (the professional way).
- All of our lettering is permanent. We do not heat-seal.
- Our lettering is held to the same strict standards as our uniforms.
Lettering Font Types
Lettering for Sublimation
Sublimation is a process that allows us almost unlimited creativity. We can pretty much create whatever lettering style you want with our sublimation process.
Lettering for Screen-Printing
Screen-printing involves applying a plastic-based ink to your garments and then "curing" it by subjecting it to high temperatures in our conveyer dryers. This produces a durable, permanent imprint that will last for years and years. The graphics capabilities with screen-printing are almost limitless and listed below are a selection of our most popular typestyles. If you don’t see one that you like, we have hundreds more to choose from.
Lettering for Tackletwill
Tackletwill lettering and designs are produced by cutting heavyweight polyester twill and sewing these directly onto your garments. We use the heaviest, most colorfast twill (the same twill used by Major League Baseball) and all lettering and designs are cut, in-house, on our computerized, laser cutting equipment. With this capability we have the potential to produce tackletwill designs in almost the same unlimited variety as in screen-printing and embroidery.
Lettering for Swiss Embroidery
Swiss embroidery uses specialized thread and applies your design directly to your garment with computerized sewing machines. One machine can produce 15 garments at a time and the variety of lettering and logos is almost unlimited. We can also embroider individual names and/or numbers as well.
Lettering for Appliqué
Appliqué designs are created by combining tackletwill and swiss embroidery. Your design is produced from tackletwill and then highlighted and/or attached to the garment with a "satin" stitch from our computerized embroidery machines. The end product is a very classic, custom-made product that produces a look unlike anything else. As with our other lettering methods, the possibilities are almost endless.
