This is mine, done by EPS:

Yeah, I'm glad I pulled the trigger on getting one. Good looking jersey. You know, except yours has a Devil on it....:lol:

Both our teams are named after things that nobody really likes, so that's some common ground.

I just scrolled up and realized I already posted pictures of it previously, on the same page.

While I had seen it earlier in the thread, it's always safer to make things idiot-proof for me just in case, so I appreciate it.

Is there an echo in here???

I could have sworn your post was not there when I made my post...

Energy Legs, you also have the choice of making the numbers 3-layer stacked twill, with the back numbers having a printed stripe pattern on the top layer.  Josh at EPS seems to think these look better.  But most of us accuracy geeks here prefer the one-layer sublimated ones.

After 12 weeks, I just got word that EPS is shipping out a customized Binghamton Senators jersey for me. I'm excited to post it to the arrival thread. If this works--- and it should--- I will be stripping another B-Sens and having it customized as a Brian Elliott jersey. We shall see.

Just a heads-up on a potential issue you may have in lettering a size 52 Canes jersey. There's a very limited distance between the red stripes on the back shoulder and waist, so it may not be possible to fit the on-ice sized nameplate and numbers in the available space without the bottom of the numbers overlapping the waist stripe. I recently had a size 50 Canes jersey done, and EPS had to shrink the back numbers so much that it looks quite unnatural, as the numbers look way too small in proportion to the letters. Perhaps I should have had the nameplate/letters reduced in size as well, I don't know.

I forgot to ask at the time...was your size 50 a 1.0 or 2.0?

Whoops, sorry. Turns out I'm a moron who didn't read back through the thread all the way.

Nothing to be sorry about.  I just posted the link because I was too lazy to retype the info on the final character sizes on my jersey.  Did everything turn out OK on yours?

Actually haven't sent it in yet. I've had a busy couple of months, and I've been considering whether to buy another jersey to add to my EPS order before I send it in. Probably need to stop procrastinating though.

Just got the invoice for a pair of current Devils jerseys from EPS; 6 weeks almost to the day. Not bad at all.

Well, that gives me some hope I might get mine sooner than I expected. Sent in a pair of jerseys about five weeks ago. Figured it might take forever since I waited until so late in the summer, which would be my own fault for procrastinating.

Whether it's a current style seems to make quite a difference. Most of the time mine aren't and it takes much longer, 12 weeks is not unusual. In fact, I have an order 2 weeks older than this one (so 8 weeks) and that's not shipping yet.

I just sent in my Kings (Robitaille), Devils (95 SCF Niedermayer) and Coyotes (Amonte) but I'm not expecting them back until December, probably. I sent them in precisely because I don't have to worry about paying for them for a while.

I staggered a few orders for the same reason. In fact, I sent out the last ones I had today after getting and paying that invoice.

My June 17 order, with several older All Stars and one AHL, was invoiced today. Nearly 3 months to the day.

 

For those of you who like to track current wait times.

I just received a polite and informative email from Josh that my modern era Blackhawks jerseys are going to be completed withing 6-7 total weeks. 

This definitely exceeds my expectations about the wait time for my first time EPS experience. Excited to see the final result but as someone with little patience, the wait is killing me.

That's about right for current styles. Unfortunately I mostly send older ones, or I send in a current one with an older one and that delays things.

What was the wait from CSL?

They did a few of my jerseys and it was less than 2 weeks.

Just thinking - if they are the ones that do the Blackhawks team jerseys, wouldn't it be ideal to go to them?
Is EPS cheaper?

The issue I ran into with TTS and CSL was they do not have the Edge name plate material. The guy from TTS said they have a tiered discount system so I would definitely use them for the MLB jerseys on deck. 

I also have bought and later sold too many 2.0 jerseys with incorrect name, letter fonts or just crappy sew jobs. Sick of making an impulse buy only to regret it later due to customization issues. Just want to be done with a few of my projects and ensure they are perfect the first time. 

*Hope you guys are doing well and keeping warm!

Is that recent, with CSL?  I last used them earlier in the year, and they had edge material, but they charge an additional 10 bucks to get it.

I was talking out of my ear. My apologies for the confusion.

TTS does not have the Edge material in stock the last time I contacted in November.  I think I was a but scared off by a few negative recent transactions with CSL.
