Century West Steelers Jerseys

Steelers design

These jerseys had it all. Nashville Predators font, Navy blue two-colour back and sleeve numbers, and a beautiful embroidered crest.  Future computers should have screens that allows you to feel what you see so you can feel the quality of the Steelers embroidered crest. FONT: Nashville Predators NUMBERS:  Two-Colour Back & Sleeve CREST: Embroidered

Fun with Fonts – Colorado

We like to encourage teams to consider using great fonts for their jerseys.   The standard ‘Block’ is still a fine font (the CCM Block on the old Canadiens & Kings is classic) but many teams settle for a basic font when they could jazz up their jerseys with a sick NHL font. We love fonts so we are going to … Read More

Heartbreak and Pancakes

While playing soccer when I was 11, I was called for a ‘hand ball’ inside the penalty kick area.  The player scored and we lost the game. I was devastated.

What’s in a name?

What name should I put on the back of my jersey? Everyone who gets a new pro-team jersey asks themselves that question.  Sounds like a simple enough question but for most people it’s a tough decision.  Teams these days don’t have just one star player. Rather, they have a few standouts who excel for various reasons or as a group (it would … Read More

Knock It Off!

The Connor McDavid knock offs have arrived. I get why people buy knock offs: a jersey is a lot more expensive  than a t-shirt. Some people don’t like ‘more expensive.’ Understandable. Money is tight these days and doesn’t stretch as far as it used to.  But people like quality. So more and more these days, folks are shelling out a … Read More

Kiss Cut

Kiss cutting (AkA reverse layers) is a really elegant (and cool) way of displaying numbers or letters on a jerseys.

Lasers. Not Just For School Photos Anymore.

Laser-Cut-Numbers

Is there anything lasers can’t do? When I started customizing jerseys, I made cardboard stencils. I would lay them on the fabric, trace it with a pencil, then cut the number out with scissors. Every new team I got an order for, had to make the stencil then repeat the entire process. A lot of love, sweat and tears went into my … Read More
