Below we'll cover everything that goes into constructing your product. There are a variety of fabrics, embellishments, and details you must understand to get exactly what you want. Different pieces utilize different fabrics, embellishments and a variety of other considerations. This will be the most detailed portion of the Team Apparel Sitelet!
Fabrics (Plain vs. Sublimated)
Sublimation affects fabrics differently. Sublimation can affect touch, feel, sheen, and color shade.
Sometimes, even though the color might be the exact same, if you have it on different fabrics, you'll get a slightly different color / sheen.
Different Fabrics (Best Used On)
Body Flex (Shorts, Shooters, Pennies, Jerseys)
Tech Mesh (Shorts, Jerseys, Pennies)
Pin Dot (Shorts, Jerseys)
Eyelet (Throwback Jerseys)
4 Way Stretch Microsuede (Jersey Accents & Shorts)
There are a variety of ways you can embellish gear. First step is deciding whether you want fabric that is a certain color or sublimation. Sublimation can give you more options, but can also be busy.
Other ways to Embellish Gear
Embroidery - Smaller Logos, on Jerseys or Shorts.
Tackle Twill - The Nicest of Embellishments. Should be done on really nice logos for Game Shorts.
Patches - The best way to prevent an embroidered short location from crinkling up. A nice detail.
Custom Pockets - You can sublimate your pockets for a nice addition.
Screen Print - For Numbers on Jerseys or Logos on Shirts.
For the most part inserts are only present on shorts, but you can get them on pennies as well.
Real Piping: You can have one row, or two rows. With one row there is not insert, with 2 you create an insert.
False Piping: Is essentially sublimated piping, making it look like there is piping when it's just sublimation.
Real Braid vs. Fake Braid: A real braid is pretty throwback, looks great with real ribbon. A fake braid is simply a sublimated option.
Sublimation: With sublimation you can do a lot of different things including repeating logos, and patterns. You can also add false or real piping to accent.
Adjacent you'll see our color palette. When choosing a color you should stick to this. The only difference is when you're going for a proprietary color such as Florida State Garnet, in that case we should color match.
Color Matching - To Ensure we get the exact right color we can color match. This needs to be done early on so there is plenty of time to make the order happen. We want to make everyone happy but from a time stand point we should not be matching every color, you should be able to work from here!
