Is Ruberti's still in business?  I've been trying to call them for weeks now and everytime I call it rings then goes to a fax machine type dial tone.  I've called their local number and the 888 number.

They're still in business, but hard to get a hold of.

There's a post on the Not Game Worn Facebook group that has a 2.0 Skate Canucks jersey done up by Central Crests, giving further credence to the theory of them being the team customizer. I've asked about whether they accept mailed-in orders or in-person only.

When they're not in the office their number gets forwarded to a fax machine. I talked to them last week.  It's getting more and more difficult to get things done there.  The guy that does hockey jerseys is retired and only comes in the office every once in a while.

Good to know.  Hopefully I can get a hold of them.  So they will still do a jersey if say I apply the jersey and nameplate?  Just might take awhile?

Yup.  Just might take a while unless you happen to get it there exactly when Greg (the hockey jersey guy) is in town.  Just make sure you get ahold of them first to ensure they can do what you want.

Is there a significant difference between the 1998-07 and 2007-09 numbers done by AIS and the 2009-11 numbers done by Bobcat on the Kings' white jerseys? I've got a 2000-02 TI on the way and I'm concerned (based on previous interactions with them) about whether or not AIS is still a viable choice.

I only contacted AIS once and got a very strange response.  They wanted to know which letters and numbers I wanted because they had a bunch of old Kings lettering lying around.  Like they were incapable of cutting new kits or something.  After I told them which characters I wanted, I never heard back from them.  Did you hear anything different?

I got a similar response when I asked about customizing a Mighty Ducks jersey.

Sounds like they won't be much use to us for anything we might need, which is a shame.

To answer your other questions, the pre-Edge numbers are larger than the Edge ones.  The pre-Edge white jersey numbers are layered, while the Edges are kiss-cut.  If your player number has a 1 in it, make sure to ask for the "tomahawk" 1's used during the early 2000's.

So be specific about wanting the larger pre-Edge numbers, send in plenty of reference photos and send in the jersey two years ago to make sure Bobcat gets it back to me in a timely manner. Got it.

Sounds like a plan.  This is probably the best time to send it in, as it tends to be the slowest part of their year.

Likewise for other customizers whose teams are out, I assume. I just sent off my Leafs to SLC and I'll be shipping off my Bruins and Stars as soon as I can get someone at CC and Blake's to pick up their phone so I can get quotes from them.

Even though AIS was the company where the customization was done, Bob (Bobcat) was the one doing it. He is going to be the best to ask.

I left a voicemail at Custom Crafted and I haven't heard a response back.  I'm just looking to get a Bruins jersey lettered for my girlfriend.

Glad I'm not a Bruins fan; I'd go broke just getting my jerseys lettered.

For real.  CC's cost to customize could be more then what the jersey cost.

Does it have to be 100% accurate?  Just get it done somewhere else if not.

I honestly wanted to peruse the options CC would present.  I'd love for her to have just one Bruins jersey made up just the way they are.  I'm worried, though, as it's a size 46 and she wants Chara.  I'm worried how a two-character number will look on the back of such a small jersey.  Figured I'd call and see what the options are and take it from there.

Can Keener do the properly sublimated 1995-07 Bruins numbers? I'm starting to question whether or not going with Custom Crafted is worthwhile.

Those aren't actually sublimated.  There's a screened layer which has stitching run through it to simulate another twill layer.
