|I'm trying to get a cycling club started at school, starting in spring and going into the summer maybe, and we'll need team jerseys. I think we're just going to stick with black shorts, regular socks and gloves, and no windbreakers, we can just by generic arm & leg warmers. So I don't need the whole kit, and the team will only have about 5 to 10 people on it. What's a good economical way to get some custom jereys? Am I going about this all wrong? I'd like to have some spiffy clothes, but it's a higher priority to upgrade the bike and such than spend hundreds of clothes. Any help is appreciated.|

|I just did our club jerseys this past Spring. I'll have to tell you that custom orders that small come at a premium. You can cut the cost somewhat by limiting the amount of colors you use. ie. - use two or less for better pricing. Our stuff had four colors, but we had a decent order size - 75 - 100 items. Use the link below and call Charlie. He can usually accomodate small orders. Tell him Bill from the Staten Island Bicycling Association set you.
You can also ask him if he has an off the shelf jersey that they can apply graphics to. I think he did thid for a local race team and they were able to save some going that route.

|I did our stuff for our team and our order was much larger. As noted above, you take it in the shorts for small orders. We used Sugoi and were VERY happy with timeliness and quality. In the past, we had used Pearl Izumi and were not as happy (though I think they make better shorts than Sugoi).
If you are on a real budget, Performance sells some attractive jerseys that are designed to just silk screen on your club logo. The bummer with silk screening on a club jersey is that the screened area doesn't breathe and becomes the "sweaty spot." But it is a lot cheaper. Get a performance catalog and look for club/team jerseys.

|Awesome service, and using their semi-custom program, you can get jerseys for around $40 USD with shipping, with only a minimum order of 12! Semi-custom shorts are even less expensive, around $35 USD... Our university cycling club and triathlon club order most of their gear from Sugoi and have been happy for the last few years.|

|I just looked at Sugoi's website, and by "semi-custom", do you mean "stock"? I couldn't find a semi-custom anywhere.|

|The stock program is where you pick a stock jersey and have your logos printed on them. Because you're not designing the entire jersey, it's semi-custom.|
