Nameplate Help

In customizing a jersey why are nameplates used?

Is it bad to have the name stitched directly to the jersey?

Maybe someone can clear up the nameplate issue for me.

Based on the replies you customize your jersey to match the on ice version.

If they have a nameplate, you use one.

But why are they there in the first place, guess that is a better way to phrase

my question. What is the purpose of the nameplate?

Traditionally names were sewn onto a nameplate so that the jersey could be re-used in the case of a player being traded, called up, etc. Just remove the nameplate and put a new one on.

It was also historically easier when doing the stitching of the letters for the customizer to only be working with the nameplate instead of the whole jersey.

However, both of these reasons aren't as big of a deal with modern pro jerseys. Most pro teams don't re-use jerseys (outside of practice or training camp) so the use of nameplates seems to be more of a tradition at the pro level.
