  2. "Do You Sell 24" Wide Hook?"

    "Do You Sell 24" Wide Hook?"
    This is a question we get regularly. It stems from the availability of our wide loop products, which are only available in the loop side (the soft, fuzzy side) in 12", 24", and 54" widths. There are no wide sheets of the hook side available. VELCRO USA manufactures low profile wide hook options in a 12” option but products like these have high minimums, often several hundred yards or so. Additionally, there are substantial lead times of 6-12 weeks on these products. To inquire about these hook options, please email us at [email protected]. Continue reading →

Typically, this printing is done on the back side of the hook portion of a custom strap so it will be outward facing when in use. We use a PLT 9 ink that is available in black or white ink, but we also have several other colors available for a $35 up-charge. This ink works well with our clichés and leaves clean imprint on the smooth nylon backing. Continue reading →
