Question about custom jerseys.(11 posts)

Question about custom jerseys.kushogun
Feb 7, 2002 9:31 PM
Hello again. Tonight my friend's mother called me up and shockingly told me how her 20 year old son (my good friend) had just been diagnosed with testicular cancer. Needless to say this one kinda hit home with the whole LA story/cycling community. This latest situation has further fueled my fire to ride in order to educate and raise funds and awareness of this disease. My question I pose to you is, I was planning on doing this years Ride for the Roses down in Austin and I wanted to print up a jersey with a list/story of the people within my life who have been affected with cancer. Does anyone know of any place that can offer anything like this? Happy riding and never take life for granted!

!Carpe Diem!

is most of the companies who make custom jerseys have a minimum order requirement which is usually 25 jerseys.

Check out the following companies who do custom work, they all have websites:

Voler
Verge
Kucharik
Pearl Izumi

Good luck, and let us know how things turn out.

Our bike team has used Voler, PI, and Sugoi over the years. All price based on the number of jerseys order, so this may be prohibitive.

More importantly is whether they can even get your jersey done and to you by Ride for the Roses. There's a pretty big lead time. Get them the art, they get you the proof (email attachments help speed that process) and then your jersey is in product. With PI, forget about it. Their lead time is like 3 months.

You may want to go the t-shirt route (easier to print though not as hip) or make something to pin on the back of your jersey (like they do for MS rides).

Make your own. Design it on your computer and print it on t-shirt transfer paper. Fruit of the Loom has detailed info and even makes a package you can buy at your local BestBuy with everything you need. All you really need is the right paper, a computer with some basic software, a jersey of your choice and an iron. I've done it and it holds up well if done right.

Thanks for the headsup on the do-it-yourself custom. How well does a t-shirt transfer adhere to a lycra/polyester type stretch fabric?

I'd also assume that since the color wouldn't be sublimated into the fabric (duh) that anywhere with an image on it would be nonbreathable. Right?

I've had success with non cotton. I think more cotton content might be better but polyester works fine. Technically it doesn't breath but the ink is very thin. It's not like those vinyl iron ons you see on some t-shirts. Overall I think it's a very viable solution. Definitely check out Fruit of the Looms web site. They have alot of good info.
