Custom Tackle Twill, Sew On Numbers, Sew On Lettering, Sew On Letters

We Do Not Sell Individual Tackle Twill Letters or Numbers


Tackle twill (sew on numbers, sew on lettering) is a form of appliqué.

Whereas appliqué is made of designs or shapes, tackle twill is a combination of letters, numbers or designs cut from a piece of fabric that are sewn onto a garment with a zigzag, satin or double running stitch.

Tackle twill is most commonly seen on sports team uniforms, consisting of the team logo, player’s name, and number.

Although tackle twill is most commonly seen on sports team uniforms, in the decorated apparel industry, instead of embroidering a large area, using tackle twill or appliqué can reduce embroidery stitch count.



Tackle twill is seen on a lot of school sweatshirts usually school name, colors, mascot, sport and the student's name.

Polo Clubs are another group that often use tackle twill to decorate their uniforms. Typically there is the polo club name across the shoulder blades with a large number below this on the back. On the right shoulder sleeve there is a smaller version of the player number. The team logo typically gets embroidered on the left chest and in some case a flag will either be embroidered on the left sleeve or have a custom patch sewn on.
