Heat seal appliqué letters spell success


The hooded Top Company has introduced a range of heat seal double appliqué letters that can be heat pressed onto garments to spell out any name required.


The 60mm high letters have been such a success that The Hooded Top Company is introducing a second colourway of ecru/navy to complement the current ecru/red and is also adding numbers to the range.


This is the latest innovation from the Hooded Top Company that prides itself in bringing products to the market that no-one else offers. Currently it is the only company offering heat seal


appliqué letters from stock for next day delivery.


Simply lay the letters out on the garment and heat press for 15 seconds and you have a garment that looks as though it has an expensive double appliqué embroidery on it. The company says the letters have sold well to companies that supply the university and souvenir sectors, with the most popular letters bought are Scotland, Wales and London.
