These versatile letters and numbers come in one-color natural chino twill or two-color gray jersey knit on black chino twill. While the edges are unfinished, there is stitching inside the edge to create the appearance of sewn lettering. Reportedly, the more the transfer is washed, the softer and more distressed it gets. There are two fonts available in vintage casual which is offered in the one-color natural chino twill, and heritage eroded which comes in the two-color gray jersey knit/black chino twill. Letters are 2.5" and numbers are available in 3.5", 5" and 6.75". Users can choose from individual six-piece packs, letter and number kits or number-only kits. Pieces can be placed on cotton, polyester or blended apparel and heat applied for a few seconds for a permanent application.

The platens come with two removable foam pads, one with a groove for ease of printing on seamed six panel caps. Hat Champ's pull and lock system holds secure enough for multi-color printing with reportedly no adhesive required.
