    NHL Team Customizers

    Thank you to the both of you. I spoke with someone at Stitches and it was white airknit. Again, I’ve never had a problem with sending cash to them. I usually type out instructions and fold the paper up with the cash inside when I send something out. Or you can always go money order if you feel better about that.

    Cash or money order only. Call them first to see what your total charge will be and you can include payment with the jersey. I’ve sent them cash before and have had no problems. They do a great job and turnaround time right now is about a week!

    NHL Team Customizers

    Thanks for the input on the Preds jersey everyone. Good call that it wasn’t EDGE material. I ended up sending the jersey in this week and asked EPS to customize it to on-ice specs so I’m confident they’ll get it right without any more specifying on my end. Pretty safe since they did the on-ice ones. I also just sent my Stars Away to Blake’s last week and they said it’d only take a week to do, so my Klingberg should be close to done! Now that it’s summer I’m sending a few more in, including my Isles Stadium Series. Anyone know what the name plate material was on those? Was it EDGE? I searched for a few pictures and can’t quite make it out. In case you’re wondering, I’m doing a Tavares. I called Stitches today and they said they have everything needed. Maybe I don’t even need to specify and they’ll do it on their own since they did the on-ice ones? Just wanting to make sure before sending it in what the name plate was.

    Has anyone gotten a Predators 2.0 done by EPS recently? I’m going to send my Home 2.0 in to get customized as Subban (I know, he just got traded...but I like the player and for a long time couldn’t decide between him or Forsberg) and was wondering if anything specific other than 2016-2017 season on-ice specs should be asked for. I imagine they still have all the correct fonts. EDGE material nameplate was used on these as well, right? I’m also going to ask for that. I hope they still have them. Anything anyone else can think of? EPS is usually pretty good about not needing much information if you send them a team’s stuff they customized.

    Thanks! As always, you have the answer! I’ll give them a call tomorrow and see what their turnaround looks like. I’m optimistic it’ll be reasonably short.

    So they were the official customizer for all of 2007-2008? Do you know anything about materials needed for the 1.0s for that season? Was the nameplate matching 1.0 material?

    Does anyone know anything about Cutting Edge Sports and the Panthers? First post says they did the Panthers roughly between 1997 and 2016. I’m looking to get a 2005-2006 Nieuwendyk Panthers done up but am wondering if CES was the customizer for that season.

    How To STRIP A JERSEY 101

    Never thought of that. Maybe I’ll give it a try. It’d be cheaper than a lint shaver and probably just as good. Thanks! “Honey, can I borrow your razor? I need to...umm...clean a jersey.”

    How To STRIP A JERSEY 101

    I swear I saw it mentioned here but can’t seem to find it. Anyway, I have some slight pilling on a few areas of a jersey I just stripped. I was able to clean most of the residue up and it looks pretty good. I plan on customizing it but the number was a “2” and I’m going to be getting “19” so I’m concerned it won’t hide all of the pilling completely, although most will be covered. Would a lint/fuzz shaver work on a jersey to clean up the pilling? I don’t want to damage the material but I’m pretty sure someone mentioned this somewhere.

    It arrived today v. 8.0

    I’m extremely jealous. I’d have bought that just for the patch. I’ve been waiting out hope that a TI or cheaper gamer of a lesser player surfaced just so I could use the original authentic patch for my Kane rookie.

    It arrived today v. 8.0

    I’ve been wanting to collect authentic NFL jerseys but the Elites aren’t apparently on-field authentic and they’re made in places like Honduras. To my knowledge the only way to get an actual authentic is buying a gamer. Was this a gamer that was stripped and re-done? It looks great!

    Anyone know if Arena Wear was the Rangers’ on-ice customizer for 2007-2008? I just finished a strip of a Rangers 1.0 that I’d like to get customized. I’ve never had a 1.0 done before. Anyone know what specifics I should ask for, including name plate material, assuming Arena Wear is the place to send it to? If it wasn’t Arena Wear, does anyone know who did the Rangers that season?

    Thanks all! Hopefully the ironing will flatten out the rest. With some luck, if any very little shows after even that, it’ll be covered up anyway.

    And when ironing I want a steamy setting?

    How To STRIP A JERSEY 101

    I skimmed through this thread and tried the acetone suggestion and had overall very good results on my first ever attempt at doing this. I’m just wondering, since some of the imprint is still there albeit pretty feint, would the next thing to finish it be to iron it a little bit? I think I read earlier that it’s fine as long as the jersey is dry. Just checking to see if anyone can confirm it helps and doesn’t ruin the jersey.
