Heat Press Design Placement Guide by Stahls’

Why Choose Stahls’? We’re Experts in the Trade.

Detroit, MI., 1932 – The history of Stahls’ began in the family garage of husband-and-wife team, A.C. and Ethel Stahl. Their family business of lettering, screen printing, chenille, and apparel decorating was sparked by a combination of A.C.’s entrepreneurial spirit and his prior work experience with felt material at a manufacturing facility. Known as Commercial Art Products in 1932, one of Stahls’ first products sold was chenille lettering sown on a felt background. The felt was cut by hand; A.C. eventually developed the process of cutting material by using a die and punch press.

Today, just as in 1932, Stahls’ remains the innovator and leader in pre-cut and custom athletic numbers, letters, and logos. We are well-known and respected throughout the sportswear, custom apparel, and promotional products industries for high-quality and innovative equipment, materials, and services.
