iron/pressed on numbers and letters

with the CCM 550's replica's, for a Nordiques jersey the logos (fleur-de-lis) are all SEWN on the jersey.

Would it be ok to get an older player (from 80's) like a Goulet or Hunter and get the name SEWN on?

When they played it was all iron/pressed on lettering.... but since it's a replica anyways, would it really matter?

If I had an older Nords jersey with the pressed on, do places still do that kind of lettering?

Or just get the sewn numbers anyways?

I don't think it'd be too hard to get a kit heat-pressed in vinyl like that. The only issue would be getting the place the appropriate fonts used by the Nords. Other than though, I really don't think it'd be that big of a problem. In fact, I'm pretty sure EPS can do that.

Ok, but would you do the heat pressed? or just stick with the Sewn on numbers.... they are replicas, so not like it's official anyways..... With the 550's I think would look dumb heat-pressed as the rest of jersey is all sewn on. I'm just thinking would be it be fine to have older players (80's) with sewn on style for a replica?

Well, I'll tell you what...how about going for as close to the real thing as you can get? I have this available:

Everything is screened on just the way they had them in 1979-80. It's a Sandow SK replica jersey but it's as close to those old ones as you're gonna find without getting a gamer. The only thing is it's 22" across the chest and 29" top to bottom so it's kinda small. But let me know if you're interested.

On my gamer the numbers are starting to crack and peel. Its a Greg Paslawski pre season gamer so Its not worth a ton of $$ but I am concerned about this...

Ok, so I just won on Ebay an old Nordiques CCM/Maska jersey... with the screened/pressed on fleur-de-lis,

from the 80's. Now I want to customize it... shall I get Sewn on name/numbers or screened/pressed on to match?

what would you do?

Me personally, I would leave it blank. My luck, the custom shop would screw it up.

I already talked to the store, they will do exact as I want, and to bring in a photo. So that's what I am doing. I have a photo from 87 of Michel Goulet, and also adding the Rendez-Vous 87 patch to it, as well as the "A".

now my debate is wether to get the numbers/letters how they were in '87 with heat pressed iron on, or go with the sewn on numbers?????

and with the rendez-vous patch

so what you think? sewn or iron on numbers?

again, this is just a Maska replica bought off ebay,

not authentic or anything, so sewn on may make it better looking, where as the iron on looks 'cheap', lol. opinions?

If you can get the correct style of heat-pressed vinyl lettering done just like they wore at the time, I'd say do it. The stitched stuff just wouldn't match. I think you'll be glad when its done that you made it as accurate as possible, especially considering it's one of your favorite players of all time.

Depends on whether your jersey is the white one or the blue one.

If you have the white and want blue screened numbers/letters, I would say "Good luck"

Reasoning being I spoke with Stahl's about 5 years ago about the screened print for Nordiques and they told me it was discontinued long time ago. So basically they said if you can find a store that still carry that colour, then consider yourself the luckiest man.

If it is the blue one, then it is ok, cause white is popular and many minor league teams still used them.
