Hello Has anyone got a local contact for custom jerseys? I prefer to use/support local businesses around Adelaide if possible. Frustrating dealing with interstate and internet sites, very impersonal and I like to talk about design face to face. Seriously thinking about a cool new jersey for road & mtb 'ers. Anyone had there own done before?
Nooooooooo don't go anywhere near whoever made the TDU jerseys! Just ask anyone who has attempted to get into a TDU jersey over the last few years...too big, too small, jersey pockets too high on your back.
One of my groups recently got custom jerseys from Ventou. The product and price were ok, but sizing was a nightmare due to confusion between "easy" and "race" fits, with easy being about 2 sizes larger - we ordered from easy samples, but were supplied with race. I'd say easy fit is responsible for the tent-like TDU jerseys - organizers and suppliers pandering to mass rides for fatties who don't want to be told that they're XXL!
I always thought the BikeSA jerseys from Graphpak were tough and well-fitting, but I don't have any from the last couple of years.
I have been thinking a bit about this lately. Doing T-shirts first and caps. But if you are serious and we can get just 30 or 40 at a time we can do it. We have been looking to engage a designed for a few things and open an e-store to raise a couple of pennies to keep this website going (or going better and looking nicer.... and Ning are going to charge for it in 7 weeks... but no big deal.)
If you're looking at a great new SA jersey, check out the one in between the two Red Bull girls in my avatar. Check out the group CancerVoicesSA, as these are the jersey's that have been designed and about to be made over the next couple of months.
