This Just In: Reverse Appliqué Apparel

While recently attending the New England Apparel Show, our owners discovered a new trend many of the vendors were now carrying: reverse appliqué.  Mostly used for school and team apparel, reverse appliqué offers a distinctively different look to spirit wear.

Instead of letter which is traditionally screen printed, embroidered, or cut and sewn onto the top of a shirt,  the reverse appliqué process cuts the lettering out of the garment, then a contrasting piece of fabric is placed behind the cutouts and stitched onto the garment so as to show through the holes.  The result is very hip and stylish.  Interested in a sweatshirt for your team or school?  Contact us, or stop in to our showroom to see samples and for more information.
