We provide tackle twill lettering for teams, businesses, and special events or projects. Tackle Twill, or applique, involves sewing down a number or letter made by cutting pieces of one material 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. This type of appliqué offers a bold look to your uniform or jersey.
