Intro to Sports & Organization Personalization
The explosion in variety of team uniforms available for customization means all teams of any level have the ability to project a professional look. Our experience with this incredible diversity of material can be invaluable to our customers. Expensive team uniforms embellished poorly or with the wrong process lose all value.
Given High Peak Sportswear’s vast experience with screen printing, embroidery, tackle twill and cut vinyl we’re in a unique position to recommend what is right, not to be limited by what we know how to apply. From the budget conscious recreation league team, to the travel teams wanting upscale uniforms, we can meet all needs.
The Team Uniform Process
Step 1 - Artwork Stage
Traditionally, artwork for Team Uniforms is not extremely complicated, regardless of what type of embellishment is chosen. A logo may be incorporated into the design, but often it’s simply a name with a traditional baseball style tail or a name arched on the garment.
Often uniforms have color block panels, 3 button or full button up front, razor backs, or some other feature which must be considered when creating the artwork. The artwork needs to work with these various garment features, so garment style is a consideration in the design of the artwork. Information on screen printing and embroidery artwork is available in their respective sections.
Step 2 - Type of Embellishment
Team Uniforms can have a variety of different types of embellishment applied to them. Depending on the garment used, price considerations, style of uniform, the team name and logo can be done in embroidery, screen printing, tackle twill or by an iron on application.
Step 3 - Names and Numbers
Many if not most uniforms will have numbers on locations ranging from left chest, center front, sleeve, or center back. These numbers are normally ironed on using a heat sensitive vinyl. Names on the garment back are custom cut on our vinyl cutter in a color of vinyl which will match the numbers. Higher dollar uniforms often use tackle twill rather than vinyl for the names and numbers.
Step 4 - Delivery
Completed orders can be picked up at High Peak Sportswear locations in Charlottesville, Blacksburg, Roanoke, Lynchburg Plaza, or shipped directly to your location.
