Lifejacket Branding

Hello all,

I am looking at branding life jackets, I have seen company with stickers on their life jacket,

Might anyone know how they do this? Would iron-on work?

Re: Lifejacket Branding

I'd test the iron on concept before trying it on a life jacket. The synthetic material on the outside of the PFD might melt, or weaken, at the temperatures needed to get the transfer to properly adhere to it. I think I'd look into having it silkscreened, or have embroidered patches made and then sewn or glued onto the PFD.
