    Customizer's Current Wait Times Thread

    I don't know how EPS operates, but the company we used when I worked got the same questions from my customers a lot. Some orders took 1-3 weeks less than others. The reason they gave us was, for example, if Monday they're doing Flames jerseys, they'll do as many Flames jerseys that are waiting to be done. The next day could be Oilers jerseys and the next day Canucks. Obviously using those examples because we were a Western Canadian company (as is the customizing company) and those teams often got done in 2-3 weeks, while other orders usually stuck to the 4-6 week window we quoted customers. 15 weeks for nameplates though...not very reasonable in my opinion, unless they have a legit reason, which they should have brought to your attention.

    I got my invoice for my two nameplates from EPS today. I placed the order July 30. I also got my invoice from Keener this week on my box of jerseys that arrived there Aug. 29. Should have had it last week, but after answering a question or two about my order, the invoice was only saved, not sent to me. S*** happens.

    No purpose at all to mention, but going through my emails with EPS, on Aug. 30, Josh responded to one of my emails that Lynette also replied to a month earlier lol. He's obviously not on his leave anymore, but his auto-reply is still sending. Maybe he's working his way back to full time with some part time hours.

    Nameplates Needed

    EPS charged me $30 US each for the nameplates I ordered recently. (Completed nameplate. They do not sell loose plate materials.) And yes, going by my tired, late-night memory, actual Swift jerseys were basically exclusive to Team Canada after the first year or two of their existence. The exception seems to be the Olympics, where Nike does all teams in Swift. (I reserve the right to be wrong on that, but the Germany jersey shown above is definitely NOT swift material.)

    The Patch Thread 2.0

    The only way I could ever do a repro, is if it's officially licensed (IE: National Emblem) and the differences between that and on-ice are basically not noticeable. Pondering options, I can always wait a week or two and see what worn/issued jerseys they have from exhibition games. (Really sucks they didn't participate in a rookie tournament this season.) For the black jersey, maybe I buy an Indocrap jersey, remove the patch and sell the jersey after. The Canucks did this with their 40th Anniversary patches too. I was still working in licensed sports retail and we were pissed at the Canucks. We had a hard time selling the jerseys they wore with the patch. Every fan asked for it and it cost us sales. The Canucks just didn't give a flying f***. Love my team, but their product people just don't want their unique product available to many people. Drives me bats***.

    That is a fact...I thought I was polite enough to at least get a vague answer lol

    Lynette was good the first time I communicated with her, but no response to my email asking for a timeline on the nameplates I ordered.

    The Patch Thread 2.0

    Just an FYI. I emailed Vanbase (Canucks team store) to ask if their 50th Anniversary patch is available separately and to nobody's surprise, it is not. I don't expect I will get an answer to my follow up of why and will they be available in the near future. Edit: They responded and won't sell them separately at any point... Even though they told me a couple months ago they would in September. What can you do?

    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.

    That's odd. EPS has always been when the work was done for me. Keener before work.

    Customizer's Current Wait Times Thread

    I don't know what they're doing right now. I actually got an email two days ago to ask about one jersey needing an A that I did not mention. I acknowledged they may be busy, so no worries about no response to my two emails about that already lol. It's good they're on the ball to reach out, and I was asked for a reply so they could get work started. I assumed an invoice was coming more or less right away after replying, because they typically need payment prior to doing the work... but here we are two days later and no invoice. So I dunno.

    If we're speculating, maybe he's getting out of the hobby and selling the business? Could be a number of reasons. Either way, I hope their customization returns (as does the quality).

    How long does Keener usually take to send an invoice once they receive a box? From what I remember, they get payment before they do the work, not after.

    The Official IceJerseys MLB thread

    I'd kill to find a green Rays or one of the old Devil Rays inaugural jerseys. (Size 52 if anyone has any leads!)

    I still haven't received a reply to an email I sent last Wednesday, to advise that I forgot to include an 'A' for one of the jerseys I mailed a couple days earlier. At this point, I'll just wait for the invoice and respond to that, to make sure the 'A' gets done before I pay.
