Basic Embroidery Production Steps and Concepts Using Filmoplast Sticky Embroidery Backing:
Many uses: Filmoplast works great with items that are too small or too bulky to be hooped. You can also use Filmoplast in hoops, continuous border frames, or for embroidering hats on standard machines.
Simple to Use: Just peel off the protective paper of Filmoplast® Stic and attach the garment or embroidery blank to the adhesive side of the non-woven backing.
No Additional Supplies Needed: Lay your material to be embroidered out on a span of Filmoplast® Stic and embroider without the use of costly embroidery clamping devices, spray on adhesives, or cumbersome supplies.
Go Hoop-less on Small Items: Your embroidery machine operators will love this for small items such as button parts, pockets ready cut, vignettes, cotton bonds, caps, etc. - they can go hoop-less!
Use with a Variety of Fabrics: With this embroidery method, you eliminate all marks on thin material such as cashmere, needle point, etc., and stretchable fabric can be smoothly placed on the machine with Filmoplast® Stic. Embroiders will not encounter shrinkage of the embroidery sewout after stitching. This is an important factor for jersey ware, T-shirts, fleece material, sweats, and so much more.
Save Money - Reuse: After finishing the job, remove the Filmoplast from the embroidered garment, and save money by using the same sheet of Filmoplast® Stic again by closing the window with a scrap piece of Filmoplast® Stic. This is another example of Gunold's green embroidery products.
Safe for Your Machine and Needles : The adhesive will not stick to the embroidery machine or embroidery needle, and it will not harm your embroidery machine electronics.
Environmentally Friendly: Filmoplast embroidery backing is an environmentally green product in several ways. The adhesive material is solvent free and environmentally friendly, and as previously stated, Filmoplast can be re-used by the green-minded embroiderer.
