Stock jerseys are those jerseys that manufacturers make in bulk and you can order them off-the-shelf. Blank stock jerseys can be available quickly depending on urgency and stock levels. Until recently, stock jersey colour options were limited to basic colours, black, white, blue, red etc. Nowadays, clients have dozens of stock styles and colours from which to choose!
Custom jerseys are those that are designed and sewn completely from scratch and come in two types: 1. Custom ‘Cut and Sew’ or 2. Custom Sublimation. Sublimation is a popular technique which gives you the ability to incorporate virtually any design or colour combination into a jersey. We’ve all seen these jerseys – Don Cherry jacket-jerseys, Tuxedos, Batman jerseys, etc. Designs range from zany to creative to subtle and simple. The process involves transferring colours onto white polyester fabrics.
One awesome advantage with sublimation: All the logos and numbers are included in the cost. Adding names usually will cost $4-$5 extra per jersey.
Custom Cut and Sew are jerseys made from scratch based on your colours and your preferred striping pattern. Cut & Sew jerseys usually cost more than sublimated jerseys because you need to add customization – cresting, names, and numbers, separately.
