Frequently Asked Questions about Player Numbers and Names


  • What are Twill Numbers?
  • What are Heat Transfer numbers?
  • Can you do NHL style fonts for numbers?
  • Do you do numbering and lettering on NHL replica jerseys?


These are the numbers used on professional jerseys and NHL replica jerseys. It is a polyester twill that is sewn to the jerseys with a zig zag stitch.

Also known as "film", it is a poly-something-or-other material that, when heated, bonds to the garment permanently. They will not peel when applied correctly. We apply them correctly. They will outlast your jersey and look quite sharp. Don't they look shiny and plastic? No. Our number have a matte finish with no shine, resulting in a number that is better than printed numbers. If you're sceptical then ask for a sample and we'll send it to you. See a close-up photo.

In some cases we can. Let us know if you prefer this over transfer numbers.
