NFL Draft Pick Names Heat Printed in Metallic Gold to Honor 50th Super Bowl
For the fourth year in a row, a team of decorators from Stahls’ DFC, Masontown, Pa., heat printed jerseys behind the scenes at last week's NFL Draft in Chicago.
The new personalized team jersey each player held up was hot off a Hotronix heat press. Player names were cut in advance, and applied on the correct NFL jersey as soon as the pick was announced. In less than two minutes, the player was presented with the jersey onstage.
This year, in honor of the 50th anniversary of the Super Bowl, player names were heat printed in CAD-COLOR FoilTEK metallic gold. For the teams that require a two-color name, the foreground was cut in CAD-COLOR FoilTEK metallic gold and the background was cut out of CAD-COLOR SuperTEK opaque.
“We plan to personalize more than 5,000 jerseys for NFL fans during the event, says Ted Stahl, chairman of the board, GroupeSTAHL, prior to the draft. “From personalizing the draft picks to on-demand fan wear, heat printing and proper preparation are the only way to make this happen. Once again, we’re extremely proud of our team at Stahls’, especially those on site in Chicago, for their hard work to help make the 2015 NFL Draft a tremendous success.”
