Custom Crafted did the originals, if you don't mind spending a ton of money.

EPS can do a great job for much less. They should be able to accurately reproduce pretty much every letter and number for the 5 players you mentioned, but it may take a bit of work to explain what you need. This is because some letters in the 91/92 font underwent some shape changes in the season immediately following- most notably, M, S, and W, which do appear in the names of some of the players you're considering. If you don't specify anything, you may get an unwanted version of that letter. You also may end up on Josh's s*** list after this, lol. Actually it's quite possible you may have the same problem with Custom Crafted as well, if you're not specific. If you want to nail the Sharks' font for the season you want, it's very likely you will have to do a good amount of research.

Btw, EPS has matching teal airknit for nameplates.

Thanks! I wouldn't have realized that. I think my best bet is Keener. I've seen he can also add the Custom Crafted logo as well.

Now, I'm thinking it's a toss up between Irbe or Kisio.

I think Keener will do a fine job. And, they are very receptive to guidance, unlike some other customizers. You can send them pictures, give them instructions, and they will be happy to receive them and try their best to give you exactly what you want.

If they can also add the CC logo, all the better.

So now I'm confused. I'm finally ready to send off a Binghamton Sens jersey for customizing this weekend. Do I go Keener or EPS?

I'd e-mail them both, with pictures, and ask if they have the necessary fonts/materials. I would almost guarantee EPS has it. I think Josh at EPS would know what materials are needed and whether they have them. I am not sure if Keener has that level of knowledge, but only because I've never needed to ask them a question like that.

I personally ask EPS every time I have something unusual, and they always tell me they can do it. Only clunker I ever got was a Whalers jersey with one layer too thin. So other than a Whalers, I basically send them everything.

Irbe or Kisio should be pretty easy for both Keener and EPS with a minimum of details to have to explain. Fortunately good pictures of 1991/92 gamers of both players are available.

With pictures that good, you could send it to either one and they'll get it done.

On the subject of keener, does anybody know if he can add a hem logo to a jersey? I thought I remembered reading that somewhere.

Some idiot I know (definitely not me) bought a 2001 all star to turn into a 2000 without stopping to think if the CCM logo placement was different.

Yes, he can have it done. May take a while though.

I already own teal and white jerseys in that style yet they look so good that I want ten more. The Hockey News nailed it when they named this as the best jersey in history last year.

I'm very much a European goalie guy as I prefer Hasek over Roy/Brodeur and Tretiak over Dryden type thing so it was a pretty easy choice for me of who I'm getting put on this jersey. I'm trying to determine if people would prefer a 1976 Canada Cup style or 1980 Olympic style.

I would love to make it in honor of Tretiak's 1981 Canada Cup MVP, but that was an ultrafil jersey. I've photomatched the 1976 and 1980 as airknit. I'm leaning toward 1976 because I like the white nameplate and the font better... and it could likely be reproduced easier... but maybe if anyone had a good reason/history lesson of why they'd choose 1980 I could be convinced since it was the year I arrived in this place.

It's tag 48 but measures like a 54. To me one of the cleaner meaner classic jerseys in history and since I'm not getting gameworn this is as close as it gets for me. The only difference of note that I can tell is the white collar.

For Rangers 1978-1987: John Vanbiesbrouck (#34) or Ron Greschner (#4, Captain)? :skaterblu:

Go with the white nameplate version on the CCCP jersey. It looks slick!

And Beezer for the Rangers!

OK, this one falls into the "its a replica, who really cares" category, but what the hell. I really like this style and it was cheap enough so I have this coming my way:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/131792693180?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

The question isn't who to put, the answer is clearly Brodeur. But in 2004 when they wore these, they didn't do names on the back, they all read "CANADA" and had the player's number. Which is stupid.

I just really happened to like this style, and I am debating whether it should be a Canada #30, or just say screw it, its a replica, and make it a Brodeur #30.

What does the collective consensus think?

Do the #30 with the CANADA name bar...hoser.

I agree, do CANADA 30 on that one

Just mess with everyone and do #30 and "USA" for the name. He does have dual citizenship so it's not a foul...

I am already assuming I will have to do it without a name plate. Odds of EPS having that color are probably pretty low.

A lot of support for Canada here. Thought at least one of you would think Brodeur was a better option .

Didn't read that PM yet, huh?

And I'm sure EPS could match the color for you.

I have a buttload of nameplates for those jerseys. $15 per plate.

$50 for Devils fans.

Could always do a Lemieux, but I know you'd want to stick with Devils players. So the only one left besides Brodeur, is Niedermayer.

You know what else has six letters and would fit perfectly?
