Tips on Choosing Sports Jerseys
Sports jersey are not just regular sports clothes that athletes wear, apparently, they mean something deeper, “The jersey has become the flag of sports -- the most powerful symbol of the connection between fans and their teams,” said Thom Loverro in the article titled The Power of the Jersey as posted at sportsonearth.com. Apparently, even choosing what jersey to wear is a serious business to many. There are a lot of factors to consider as this will be a very important part of a team’s journey.
When ordering a sports jersey for your team, always look at the material itself before buying in bulk, “Some uniforms are made from jersey style material, and others are made from pro-mesh, polyester, jacquard or cotton. The material can affect the way the uniforms look as well as performance. Consider what sport you need uniforms for, the weather you'll be playing in, and if you need a looser or tighter fitting custom uniform. There are special materials made specifically to wick moisture to make you more comfortable while you sweat. Some materials are also snag and stain resistant, so consider all your options when ordering your custom uniforms,” shared an article posted at sharprint.com titled 7 Tips When Ordering Custom Uniforms For Your Sports Team. The same article shared how important it is to pay attention to the team’s logo as well, “Logo Design Can Make or Break a Uniform. If you want your logo on your uniform, make sure to consult with your printer to figure out where to place it. It may look better on the back of the uniforms rather than on the front. Be flexible about the team logo to ensure an overall pleasing look for the uniforms. You want them to be simple but effective. If you don't like the look of the screen printed logo, have your logo embroidered instead for a professional look.”
Sean, a basketball team captain in his school and who is often in charge of the team’s basketball jersey printing in Singapore, agrees that the material and logo are some of the most important things to consider in ordering custom jerseys, “I have quite enough experience in this. I ordered some jerseys before without looking into the material. And that particular uniform was only worn 3 times because the fabric frayed easily when washed. Waste of money. Even the logo wouldn’t stick because of the poor quality of the jersey.” Sean said that he now look for a shop that offers cheap jersey printing but at the same time, have quality jerseys, “I think my mistake was that I settled in a place near me without considering other cheaper options because I was just too lazy to look around. Now, I know what I will look for and won’t settle until I find the best one for my team.”
Marco, who owns a customized jersey shop in Singapore, offered some tips on jersey designs, “Always make sure the numbers and surnames are at the back of the jersey. Make the lettering prominent and the color easy to recognise. There should be some complementary colors knowledge and sensibility on this. Say, if the shirt is mint green, don’t make the letters and numbers colour pale green or mellow yellow. There should be a contrast so the coach or referees can easily recognize you on certain times they need to call your name during the game.”
Coach Allen, who leads a soccer team, shared how he became more open to finding quality soccer jersey printing in Singapore despite years of settling for the school’s staple jersey design, “I realize that every team I coach is different. And since we have a budget for it, I think it’s high time we try another jersey design. After all, it’s a new year and a new team so maybe it would be nice to do something for a change. I know these kids can get more inspired and motivated if they come out with a newer jersey design next year.”
