  1. Yeah you would think nameplates would be quicker, says this guy who's order is going on 15 weeks for a couple of nameplates.  I don't know how they prioritize things, but it is odd how certain orders jump the queue somehow.  Maybe mine is difficult or something.  Looking for green textured mesh for an old North Stars jersey might be tough to come by or tough to sublimate properly who know??? Lynette says a week or so, so I'll have to be patient I guess and hope they do an awesome job.

    Flo Knit huh? You're probably right, I just assumed it was the swift material but I don't really know much about international jerseys and their material, so thank you. Guess I'm looking for Flo Knit instead, hopefully it's easier to obtain.

    I'm no expert on international jerseys either but I thought I read on this forum that only Canada had the Nike Swift jerseys.  Someone, anyone feel free to correct me on that.  But just the look of horizontal pattern of "lines" or rows of fabric leads me to believe it's in fact flo knit.  Anyway like Phil the Thrill says EPS can make the most accurate version of that nameplate by sublimating it to closely match the colour you're after.  Get in line though, it's a fairly long wait for them to complete a project for you.

    On the hunt for some yellow Nike Swift material for the jersey below. Needs to be long enough for "KAHUN". PM if you got some, thanks.

     

    I think that will be hard to come by.  I've heard EPS has had matching swift material in Black/Red/White for team Canada 2014 Sochi unis. I know that doesn't help you but they might have yellow too. You might have to send it in or order a nameplate from them if you can't find an alternative.  But looking at the pic you posted,  it looks like Nike Flo Knit to me, but I could be seeing things too.

     


  4. So I tried emailing Josh at EPS and got an out of office reply from July 24th?  It linked Lynette as a contact, so I ask about a timeframe and she said my order should be done in the next week or so, so I guess we'll see.  That would be 15-16 weeks, which isn't expedient but I can live with it.  I'll just be happy to get them back before the start of the season.

    I put in an order for two nameplates at the end of July. Heard nothing yet. I did send an email the other day to inquire about them, but no response. I thought I got the order in early enough to avoid the start-of-season madness. Apparently not.

    Ok, thanks... I should maybe send an email.  My 2 nameplates were kinda one offs but Josh gave me a confident, "if we don't have it we'll make it" reply.  Sorta like Kyle Dubas with his, "we can and we will."

    My "last" order at EPS was invoiced today, exactly 8 weeks to the day. 

    It's my "last" order in that they don't have any more of my stuff at the present moment. That will likely change in the next couple of days. 

    No fair, I've had an order in since June 10, I guess about 14 weeks.  Just 2 nameplates too. 

    Is it worth reaching out to them or would you consider it too soon, give it a month or so yet sorta thing?  Or just let it run it's course and don't be so paranoid??😂

    Every customizing job I’ve ever done with Keener they haven’t requested payment until it was completed. EPS always asked form prepayment and Keener was the opposite....

    You must be on the preferred customer list with Keener, they always send me an invoice first.  EPS just the opposite. 

    Just FYI for Keener orders, I sent my last one in July 26 and got it back Sept 10 so pretty well 6 weeks turnaround currently.

     


  8. I've done one payment plan with a random stranger off ebay.  If they are working on paying over say 2 pay periods, which was the case with my guy, it should work just fine.  Not really knowing the guy, I hung onto the jersey and just agreed that it was his upon full payment and then I'd ship.  Basically receiving half of the money, I agreed not to sell while he came up with the rest.  Worked great though, they obviously want the jersey and are committed if they pay a good portion to begin with.  I'd never ship out a jersey only partially paid for unless it was a situation like Fitz had with it being a member here that I knew and dealt with in the past.

     


  9. Keener mini haul!

     

    90s Phoenix Roadrunner Gretzky size 56 NWT - love this jersey for the chain stitched crest.

    2010 Bruins Winter Classic Rask Rookie size 56 - not GC but I can live with it. I've always liked the design so adding it meant I'd have to select a player and really Rask is the only option for me on a modern Bruins.

    Big shout out to TMLFAN for getting my 1991-92 St. Louis Blues road jerseys customized for me.  He even refurbished the crest on the Chase jersey.  I tried to upload pictures, however, they are too large.  Here are the links to the jerseys:

    Kelly Chase: https://imgur.com/a/caZDw2D

     

     

    Like Fitz said those are perfect.  Gotta love that TMLFan can refurb those crests too, small detail but it makes the jersey that much better.  I have a blue blank that I'm doing up as 94-95 pre season Blues. Only difference will be the 3 colour name vs the 1 colour on yours.

    Does anyone know what kind of job Elite Sportswear will do on a Bruins 2.0 white?

    My friend and I sent in some jerseys for cresting. I've just been informed by Elite Sportswear that they cannot do 100% NHL standard customization on Bruins jerseys. They say it will come close though.

    Would you advise us to proceed? Or is there some place better to go to?

    I think the problem customizers have with doing Bruins jerseys is anything 1996 and later seems to be sublimated twill or felt kits.  So you'll get layered twill instead of one layer dyed to look like 2 or 3 layers.  So depends how picky you are about that.  Keener couldn't do a 2010 Winter Classic exact to spec either. It called for sublimated felt but he had to layer since the colours didn't appear as vibrant as the actual gamer kits when he did it.  I was ok with it, but you may not be.  The only real option to get it exactly right is to send it to Custom Crafted and they tend to get their share of complaints and there sewing and workmanship can be subpar at times too.  You're probably in good hands with Elite, if you're ok with close enough.

    Ouch. Well, Lynette at EPS said my order that's currently in line is going to be at least another month (sent in June), I wonder if they could just add it to my order. 

    Well that means my order they received June 10 won't be coming back until the start of hockey season.

    And Kariya is a good choice. Nice big block CCM.  You know owning one more than likely means you'll soon own 20!😉

     


  13. Can't thank @slimcutta enough for this one.  Lucky that he saw my post from a couple weeks back looking for more Maritime Canadian 90s AHL jerseys.  This one's special, as PEI is probably my favourite place to visit.

    Also still on the lookout for a St. John's Maple Leafs, Cape Breton Oilers and Halifax Citadels to go with the Maritime jerseys.


  14. I read in this thread a couple pages back that patch collection will sometimes make the patch you're after.  I've put a message into them, but never got a reply.  Maybe they don't do sponsor type patches from the minor leagues??

    Anyhow, maybe someone here has a recommendation for getting a patch made.  Please PM or share details of a place that maybe you had a good experience with or was able to at least get you a suitable patch made.  My patch is pretty simple to say the least, very little proofing required.

     


  15. The beauty of this form on display... more eyes and minds on your project the better and we all learn something from it.  I'd have never thought or known about the differing shoulder patches in this instance but now I've learned something about Blue Jackets jerseys.

    My vote would go for Foligno or Atkinson.

    What was the fight strap stitching like on the MIC team stock with retail tags? Double? or Single?

    Any way, I just ordered a Darnell Nurse Adidas Orange TI jersey. When I get it, I'll post pics. But... $530 CAD shipped 😞 Will probably owe customs fees, too.

    I'm gonna get my white one crested with McDavid in a couple weeks. Also, I will sell my McDavid Indo some time this season, when hopefully it will sell for more than it would now.

    Ok, if you do a McDavid on the white, you can probably reuse the nameplate if you need to, though I'd assume Elite Sportswear must have matching material so you may not need to go to those lengths.  I sent mine to Keener so I needed to reuse a Russell plate for a McDavid since he doesn't have the material.

     

     


  17. Nice score on the Oilers MiC!  Thanks for sharing.

    The only Adidas MiC I have seen in person was an Oilers retro from last season with the 40th patch.  Just like KB67 was mentioning, it too was a super easy strip, I was even able to salvage the nameplate.  Good luck with the strip and re-custom.

    And 320 CAD is a good amount to be into one, you've done well I'd say.
