First Time EPS Questions

That's good news, glad to hear you won't have the same problem I did. You've got a lot more room there than I expected. On my 50 (1.0) there's only 15 1/4" vertical space between the stripes. My nameplate is 4" high, and there's still 7/16" blank space between the nameplate and the top of the numbers, so there may actually be much less than 1" of free space available on your jersey, but you're certainly a lot better off than I was. My back numbers are only 10 5/8" high, so they had to cut off over an inch!

Someone walk me through the process based on what I've done.

In mid-March, I emailed Josh and asked if they could do a customization job on a red jersey for me. He said yes, just need to provide measurements and some photos. I just finally sent him the measurements with front and back photos of the white version of the red jersey that I want done up.

Now what happens? I'm expecting confirmation from him that they can do it and that I should now send the blank red jersey. Anything else?

I'd prefer to not send the white jersey since it's ... well, since it's my grail and I don't want to not have it for X number of months.

I would have just sent that stuff in with the jersey and a completed order form from their website. I don't believe you needed to email him that information.

Yeah, I went through an extra hoop with Josh. He's been helpful with my first experience with them.

Jersey, order sheet, and pics all go out tomorrow. Considering this is the road version of my favorite jersey of all time, I'm excited to get it done up. Eight to ten weeks delivery won't bother me.

That would be a 2003-04 white Binghamton Senators gamer that Chris Kelly wore with the captain's C. A MeiGray consignor accepted an offer I put on it about two years ago. It's a jersey for my old team that I used to see often and that was worn by a player who was key in Boston's 2011 cup.

The jersey gave me the perfect model to get a red BSens gamer done up by EPS.

What is Dr. Puck's favorite jersey of all time?

Did EPS do the original customizing for the NHL and their 2011 All Star jerseys?

I know they do their version and it looks good on every jersey anyone her got done through them.

I just thought I read somewhere, at one time, that they were the official customizer for the entire set of gamers.

I think I remember hearing that also.

Mine came out perfect.

I am pretty sure EPS did not do the game jerseys for 2011, or any other recent All-Star Game, for that matter. They have done the team jerseys worn by the players in the skills competition, and some years ago, the Young Stars game jerseys. For many teams, you can often spot some inaccuracies in the skills competition jerseys because EPS was not the official customizer for those particular teams.

On the 2011 ASG jerseys, there are some slight differences in the back numbers' striping pattern between the EPS version and the game version, so I wouldn't say EPS does them exactly the same as the gamers.

For what it's worth, I've been emailing Josh over the last two weeks on my first order. He's been pleasant, to the point, and very helpful.

He did the same for me when I was having them do my Watertown Wolves jerseys. I think oddball stuff that they have to recreate from pictures/measurements is of particular interest to him.

Just received a pleasant email from him on my order. He caught a mistake that I made but didn't see in my original order. Assuming that they're getting at the jersey now, I'll be more than happy with the turnaround time. Customer service is pretty solid too.

I'm planning to send my 2011 NHL all-star game jersey to EPS...can they provide the team patch for the left shoulder (I assume for an additional cost)? If so, do they use an accurate patch? Or do I need to buy one separately and send in with my jersey for them to put on?

Last I remember EPS used printed patches for those jerseys, which didn't look very good.  There are good embroidered patches for most teams, made by National Emblem, which are available at SportsK, eBay, etc.  I would definitely buy my own.

Yes, you are better off buying them separately and providing them. 

I've bought from this guy on eBay almost exclusively, good quality and he has a large inventory. Ask if you don't see what you need, he may still have it.

Okay, thanks for the help. Actually, one further question: How are the names and numbers done for that jersey?

Names are one layer twill on an oval nameplate, numbers are one layer sublimated.

This is mine, done by EPS:

Names have stitched twill letters.  All numbers are single layer sublimated twill, if you want them done like the on-ice jerseys.

I'm not even sure how that would work...
