Decorating Baseball Uniforms
Posted by admin on February 22, 2007
Baseball and softball season is nearing for many recreation leagues. We’re beginning to get more and more requests for baseball and softball uniforms. Many of our customers don’t understand what possibilities exist and what all is involved in decorating their uniforms, so here’s some information to help out.

The cheapest and most common means of decorating a baseball uniform is screen printing. Screen printing is priced based most often upon the number of colors you are using and on the number of locations where the screen printing will be done on the uniforms. We charge $4.75 for the typical team name on the front chest of a baseball jersey, a 4-inch number on the the front of the jersey, and an 8-inch number on the back of the jersey. There is also a $10 fee for each screen that has to be set up.
Customizing baseball uniforms with embroidery is usually done for smaller logos that require some more detail. Pricing for embroidery is normally based upon the stitch count. For instance, we charge $5.00 for logos that are up to 7,000 stitches. You can get an estimate on the stitch count for your team’s logo by sending it to an embroiderer and requesting a quotation. Similar to screen printing, embroidery includes some setup costs as well if you need to have your logo digitized (made into a file that can be read by embroidery equipment). Normally this cost ranges from $5.00 to $10.00 per thousand stitches being digitized. Again, an embroiderer should be able to give you an estimate on how long much it will cost to have your logo digitized. You should only need to send a jpg or other image file to the embroiderer to get an estimate.
Tackle twill is the most expensive of these three decorating techniques. Tackle twill is what the professional teams use. It involves stitching fabric onto the uniform, and in most cases it looks more professional than a screen printed or embroidered uniform.Hopefully this review of baseball uniform decorating methods has been helpful.
