Before the 2007 FLM, someone posted a link to a site where you could buy silver iron-on letters. They were great, just the right size to stick on a vest.
Is that person still here? Or does anyone have any suggestions?
Is it Cyberglow? I remember looking at some for mrs puffy, but I didn't buy any in the end so don't know what they're like.
I know you can buy special printer paper ( even in Tesco's) print off what colour/lettters/design you want and iron them on. Have tried it & ok for a one-oof but they dont wash well & we did it on 100% cotton t -shirt.
Hope thats of some help!
I've said it before and I'll say it again: Bondaweb. You get it in department stores in small packets.
Draw your letters on the paper side BACKWARDS. Cut them out roughly and iron them to your "name" fabric. Hot iron, no steam. Cut them out neatly then peel the backing off and iron the letters to your top.
If you're worried about them peeling off (I didn't want to say "WILT" at the end of my race), you can stitch round the edges to hold them on, but they should be good to stay.
If you live anywhere near a decathlon they will put letters on for you.
And if you put on a soppy face and tell 'em its for charridy they sometimes do it for free
There's a stand at the expo that will do it for you. Just drop your vest off on the way in and pick it up on the way out.
Thanks for the suggestions, I do have some printer paper somewhere I think. Or just go the lazy route and let th'Expo people do it.
Last year I ran for Unicef and they put your name on for you.
