  1. Don't lose all hope at 2 months with cross-border items (and domestic too crossing Canada). I had a baseball jersey from Chicago take about as long stuck at the border last summer. This week is also a bad one for Canada Post's facility in Mississauga (where a lot of international mail enters Canada). A recent covid outbreak there has 220+ positive cases and Canada Post is warning people to expect delays because of it, which is obviously on top of delays already happening.
  2. Interesting. I have a Canada 2010 Swift jersey that has the nameplate zig-zag stitched on when those game jerseys had a straight stitch, because EPS refused to do it anything but their way. It's been a while since that one, so maybe I'll try again as I'll soon need a Canucks Adidas nameplate done with only the top and bottom surged. Wish me luck lol.
  3. I paid as the business week was basically ending. Expecting a tracking number by Saturday morning is a bit unreasonable. I'll give him a business day or two before I go harassing him for it. I do agree that the review on FB is troublesome, if accurate. No way should anyone be getting a couple jerseys in a matter of weeks when so many of us are waiting 6-7 months. It's also an online review, so many of which are complete horse**** anyway. It doesn't make sense that one person, who happens to go write a review on his FB page that's been inactive since October, got jerseys done in a few wee
  4. Keener did my 90s Canucks jerseys just fine... but that was also when their prices were reasonable. Regarding EPS, I've asked them for specific sewing styles for nameplates and patches (IE: straight stitch instead of zig-zag). Based on my communication with them, they might charge you an extra few dollars "if we have to sew a special way" for patches, but for nameplates (be it how they surge or sew them to the jersey), the answer I got was "we'll do it how we do it".
  5. Another one I just gotta share before it gets re-customized.
  6. FYI for those who wanted to know. I got my invoice from NSJ today.
  7. Anyone have a line on red 1998 Team Canada material? I did ask EPS if they have it. I was told they have "red dazzle", but they're not sure if it matches this jersey. Any info would be appreciated.
  8. Putting out a feeler to see if there is a white Sabres ultrafil (early 90s) out there in 52 or 54, Mogilny or blank (not opposed to stripping another player either).
  9. Fair enough, but I haven't had that with prior experience with NSJ. My communication issues with Josh have only been recently.
  10. Getting a tracking number is never really in question with the various customizers we use. I just expressed an expectation to receive it by a certain date, hoping to hold him to his word of "end of next week". Time will tell.
  11. I heard from Josh this morning after yet another email last night. He did apologize and told me my jerseys would be shipped by the end of next week. My response included a date of expectation by which I will have received an invoice, paid for the work and received a tracking number. We'll see how that goes.
  12. To add to the above, I concur that Josh is in over his head at NSJ. Putting 2+2 together, he got a ton of our business around the time Keener raised his prices. That's another reason why I'm trying hard to not get mad, but that gets more difficult the more time that passes without response.
  13. The last email I got from Josh at NSJ in December, he told me he hired someone to help. Obviously nothing has changed. I do know this is basically a business in the basement for him, so I'm trying really hard to be graceful and lenient with my rising displeasure. I am a patient guy... when I'm given honest and accurate information, and my attempts to communicate when you have 5 of my jerseys (a lot of you send a lot more than 5 at a time), get answered in a timely manner. With having to send multiple messages in more than one way (usually a few emails and Facebook messages) to get attention an
  14. I actually did get the British Columbia version of a stimulus cheque... but mine wasn't very much because my 2019 earnings were too high for the maximum amount. If I wasn't lucky enough to be working at home this whole pandemic, with some overtime which actually made 2020 a lucrative year for me (by previous lower earnings standards anyway lol), I would be asking the provincial government why the amount is based on earnings before the pandemic started. But alas, I've decided to avoid. More out there to be sought.

After the various pieces of advice from
  16. The autograph is right in the middle of the front logo.. It's stopping me from bidding on the jersey unless I get solid guidance in the next two days that it can be removed successfully. Not hopeful so far.
  17. Can sharpie be successfully removed from the twill of a front logo on an early 90's ultrafil jersey?
  18. Anyone received any communication from North Star Jerseys recently (yes, again)? I did get a reply about a month ago and got told my jerseys would be ready in time for Christmas, yet here we are. I sent another email last week, but crickets so far.
  19. Especially for a fake! I get that fake jerseys are reality today, but ffs, if they just sell them for $50 cause they know what they are, I'll generally leave them alone lol.
  20. I'm re-discovering my love for the early 90's ultrafils lately. Dangerous for the wallet. As for Adidas vs. Reebok, I don't mind the Adidas on-ice jerseys at all, but if there's one area that the Edge 2.0 absolutely destroys Adidas, it's the shoulder patches (at least for Vancouver) ...
  21. A lot in this community are of the opinion that Reebok Edge 2.0 are better jerseys anyway, but don't let that make you give up on tracking down Adidas on-ice jerseys. I have a couple Canucks from the first season when they used them for rookie camp. Canucks store sold them at a decent price and I stripped and re-customized them. They are get-able, just with patience. Lots of patience. This topic also vindicates what some of us have been saying since Adidas took over. They are blatantly false advertising the jerseys sold in stores as what the players wear during games. Drives me leg
  22. No. Adidas does not allow NHL teams to sell actual on-ice jerseys at retail. The only way to get them is to buy a game-worn or get lucky if an NHL team decides to flip the bird to Adidas and sell some in their team store. Easiest way to tell is where the jersey is made. Made in Indonesia = What Adidas peddles as "authentic". Made in Canada = on-ice jersey. Other differences are a reinforced fight strap, and just better/stronger material that the jersey is made of. All-around it's a night-and-day difference in quality. As for the Adidas buttons, I cannot help you with that. I refuse
  23. I'm in that parade too. I actually really like the Canucks reverse retro...but I will not buy anything but on-ice quality...and with how much the Canucks start their game worn auctions at these days... nope. Not happening.
  24. Ok, I'll join the party.. https://www.flickr.com/photos/189618020@N08/albums/72157715327596782/page1/
  25. You're not wrong there. Even with enough work for a turnaround time no shorter than 8 weeks, he still replies to emails within a day, maybe two tops... which is more than I can say for most of the hockey customizers we have now. I'll be using Bill for the blank baseball jerseys I have on my rack.
