Use E-Zee Weblon No Show Backing When Embroidering On Performance Wear

LACONIA, N.H. — April 25, 2012 — Currently over a $6 billion industry, performance wear can present an embroiderer with some definite challenges. With the performance wear market expected to hit $7.6 billion by 2014 (Market Research firm, Research and Markets, Dublin, Ireland), it would benefit most embroidery businesses to understand which backing to use when embroidering on a fabric that can be skinny, slippery, stretchy - or all of these wrapped into one! And based on the broad definition of performance wear (it's the garment that is performingnot necessarily the one wearing it!) and the prevalent use of polyester in garments today, it could very well be that performance wear represents the bulk of your orders.     

E-Zee Weblon No Show is a low profile, soft  and sheer Cut Away backing  available from the E-Zee Backing & Topping® division of Madeira  USA. Made of 100% embossed nylon, it provides low visibility, and was designed specifically to be used on performance wear and moisture  wicking fabrics. A single piece will work for designs of up to 8,000 stitches. For larger designs you may want to use two pieces. And for  particularly stretchy items, try this: first lay down a piece of 1.0 oz. E-Zee Tear Lightweight; then place a piece of  E-Zee Weblon No Show  over that, and finally the garment. Embroider the design. Tear away the E-Zee Tear® Lightweight, then cut away the excess E-Zee Weblon No Show. The result is a low profile, no-show backing, with no risk of  producing a "badge effect."      

You can get E-Zee Weblon No Show in pre-cuts and rolls, in various sizes. It is available in white, black and beige, in weights of 1 to 1.5 oz., plus a fusible version that is 1.65 oz. For those with eco-friendly concerns, E-Zee Weblon No Show is free from all formaldehyde. There is even a flame resistant Weblon Mesh, available in pre-cuts and roll, that  is1.6 oz.
