STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich.—STAHLS’ creates a custom sports jersey for the New England Patriots’ visit to the White House. The company designed a jersey at the STAHLS’ Decorating Fulfillment Center (DFC) to mark the football team’s visit on April 19. The event marks the first time STAHLS' has designed a jersey for a sitting president.
Robert Kraft, owner of the Patriots, presented the jersey to President Trump during the team’s trip to the Capitol. The garment presented to Trump features a sewn-on Super Bowl championship patch, as well as the Trump name embellished in twill. While sports teams regularly visit the President after winning championship games, Ronald Reagan established a regular practice of honoring teams at the White House.

The jersey marks the latest collaboration between STAHLS’ and the Patriots, as well as the National Football League (NFL) at large. The company says it plans to offer a Tom Brady specialty jersey with the same patch for the NFL specialty shop.
STAHLS’ also takes part in the annual NFL Draft, where it prints jerseys onsite with pre-cut names to correspond with draft announcements as they take place in real time. This year, the company participated in the NFL Draft in Philadelphia.
