Adhesive-backed Insignia material in red is a high-tack, residue free polyester that is often used for sail numbers, insignia and as an economical repair tape. Being polyester, Insignia is inherently UV resistant, but will break down faster than acrylic, vinyl or UV protected Dacron® in the sun. Insignia is easy to use, rarely needing to be sewn. It also features a grid on the paper backing to aid in patterning.
Insignia is easy to remove when numbers or insignia need to be replaced. When using it as a repair tape, if the rip you’re patching is larger than three inches the patch should be sewn in place. Rips three inches and under do not need to be sewn.
To properly install adhesive-backed Insignia, we recommend taking care to follow a few steps. If installing Insignia on older or wrinkled sailcloth, clean the area of the sail with 303® Multi-Surface Cleaner or a 50/50 water and alcohol solution prior to installation. Be sure your environment is right for installing Insignia—we recommend 68° F to 90° F. During installation, be sure to smooth out the Insignia, removing any bubbles. Then let it lie flat overnight while the bond cures.

Insignia Material - Sail Logo Creation - Make your own Sail Logo
How to create a sail logo using insignia material (adhesive bakced Dacron) and monofilm as the pattern.
adhesive material looks good as an insignia on my sail.
Awesome product. Easy to cut and apply and sticks very well
As described. Great product.
Great product (but be aware of Draft Tape, Red 1")
I bought this adhesive backed fabric to make the insignia for our Catalina 22, which is a red 1" wide red diamond. Using this fabric will be a bit more work than if I had bought the Draft Tape Red 1". Hopefully other Catalina owners can avoid my mistake. Well, its not really a mistake because cutting out the 1" strips myself will save money; and I will have lots of material left over for other project.
All Good, thanks
All good, the web site is clear, checkout smooth, shipping is amazing,
Easy to use
I use this adhesive backed fabric for decorative lettering on tote bags made from sail cloth. It is easy to apply the letters with the adhesive backing. I zigzag a decorative outline on the letters. Just make sure to reverse the letter template or design if you are marking it on the back side!
