Very impressed with and wanted to share the concept of BIG LETTERING on the backs of football jerseys that aren’t necessarily being worn for football. Spirit Football Jersey specializes in custom, oversize football jerseys for sororities, weddings and other non-football occasions. We think they look great and it’s a trend that you might want to consider. You can see more ideas on their Facebook page or website.
My daughter was wearing one of these last time she came home from college — looked just like the photos. Her lettering was done with that pebble puff material. I loved the look — thought the actual heat pressing looked a little complicated. Wouldn’t mind some tips on how best to do that…… 😉 Enjoy your blog.
Hi Blinged Up! I’ve done this type of printing a few times. Because the print is larger than the heat press, I do a little improvising. I lay the garment out on a piece of cardboard on a table, with the arms spread out. I then take the graphic that I cut, and lay it out where I want it printed. Once it’s where I want it, I use my blue heat tape and tape it in position so it doesn’t move. I will then move the cardboard/garment to my heat press (carefully), then just heat tack everything into place. After everything is tacked into place, I do the full press (without the cardboard). You’ll have to press it a couple of times because you will have to shift the garment to get both arms, the body, etc.. I hope that helps.
Thank you, Mark! I’m going to try one. 🙂
This post may be old enough that no one will see this question, but here goes….
I’ve contacted Spirit jerseys and was told that they will not sell blanks; that you have to order at least a back print to purchase. Does anyone have a similar shirt that can be purchased in blanks? I would like to start offering these, but the price from ordering them already printed won’t work for my business.
I read all the comments! Thanks for reading and I’ll forward to Mary G. in customer service, perhaps they can help you find a supplier of similar shirts. Spirit Jerseys does a great job (they even had them in the gift shop at the hotel we stayed in in Long Beach recently!) but I can understand that the price points they can offer you won’t work for your business. Good luck sourcing and I’ll see if Mary G. can help.
I am also very interested in a blank shirt to customize as spirit jerseys. Boxercraft Pom -Pom pullover good not great. A little to stretched out in the neck area and more of an a-line cut. Could be a big problem also if they run out of inventory. Very interested in finding a source for blanks. Will keep searching. Please share if any new info becomes available

Hi Maurita, Thanks for reading. I’m glad Josh was able to recommend the shirts from Pennant Sportswear, I hope that was helpful. Good luck with your custom shirt sales.
Do you all have a video on how to make the lettering? I am not sure if I should curve the lettering or press it straight.
Hi Tammy, thanks for reading. As far as I know we don’t currently have a video on creating this specific type of lettering but I will have someone call you to give you the information you need to proceed with your project. Let me know how it turns out. Ted
How long do you recommend making the word (s) on the back? And how big of font?
