Tips

  • Check with the appropriate division or league to verify numbering and lettering regulations
  • Use a heat transfer material that inhibits dye migration (such as Thermo-FILM) if jerseys are dark-colored polyester
  • Use a layout board to help with alignment if using pre-cuts for names
  • Pro Block is the most popular font

Add-On-Sales

  • When a customer orders front numbers for a jersey, ask if they'd also like numbers on the shorts of the uniform.
  • Ask if the league requires player names to be on the back of the uniforms.
