NHL Team Customizers

Recommended Posts

I didn't know where to put this question and I'm not sure I will get any input but does anyone know what happened with the jersey supplier Pederson's, who supplied the North Stars in 83-84 and the Islanders in 84-85.  I think they also supplied the US olympic team in 84. 

I guess my question is do they still exist as a company or were they bought out?  If so does anyone know by which company? 

Apparently Vintage Minnesota Hockey still gets nameplate material from Pedersons so I figured they're still in operation in some capacity.

I'd like to get the Pedersons wordmark embroidered on an older North Stars jersey.  I could probably just have it done at a local embroidery shop, but it would be awesome if I could get it done by the supplier.

Yes, they can do it provided the name doesn't have a "G" in it.  SLC, and pretty much every other customizer, gets the G wrong.

What chance is there that they’d have the proper nameplate material for an 05-07?

The nameplates were regular air-knit on those jerseys.  I’m sure they have it.

Not a team customizer but what company does the customization for nhl shop, fanatics, etc? Not looking to have a nhl Jersey lettered but asking for another type of jersey

So who has actually been doing the Coyotes jerseys? I’ve got someone on Facebook who says that someone at Big Time Jerseys has told him that they’ve done the Coyotes’ jerseys since day one.

Never mind, we figured it out. The person who they were talking to used to work for Artcraft and apparently Big Time does everything for the Coyotes except for the on-ice jerseys, which are handled by Artcraft.

Hi. I have 2 jerseys I want to customize, a Rangers Edge 2.0 and a Calgary Flames CCM 80s/90s authentic. Can anyone suggest a single customizer that might be able to do both?

EPS or Keener, but since you're in NY already, you really should send the Rangers to Arena Wear.

Thanks for the response.  Thinking about using EPS because either way I have to ship them both (don't live anywhere near Arena Wear).  Has anyone had a bad experience having EPS customize a Rangers Edge 2.0 or a vintage Flames jersey?

Personally, I limit what I send to EPS to two types of jobs - one of their pro clients, or I've seen the kit elsewhere and can evaluate it myself.  If all I have is a gamer reference and want it done like that, it goes to Keener.

I’m starting to feel the same way. Just too many inconsistencies.

I've been doing exactly this for some years now.  For an older jersey like the Flames one, I'd feel more comfortable going with Keener.

Appreciate the feedback. I just sent an inquiry to Keener. I also reached out to Great Plains Cresting earlier. They can do the Flames for $100 and add my SC patch for $10 more. Haven't asked them about the Rangers but it sounds like price would be the same.  I'd rather not have to ship to/from Canada from here, but if I'm considering shipping to Keener in Winnipeg I might as well consider shipping to Calgary. Looking forward to Keener price quote.
