Van67 Posted December 3, 2016 Report Share Posted December 3, 2016 I recently acquired a white Nike Netherlands hockey jersey from the late 1990s. As is apparently an epidemic with these old IIHF jerseys, the numbers were peeling. Advice I got at a local customization shop was to throw it onto the heat press and the problem would be fixed. As we found out in doing that, Nike used two-layered silk screen (we thought it was vinyl) and the orange top layer basically melted into the bottom blue layer. Obviously we did not heat press the arm numbers and I managed to save them with dabs of krazy glue, believe it or not. My question, is if there are any customization places in Canada who can make twill numbers for this jersey that I can have sewn over top of the damaged back numbers. This is my preferred method of repair over trying to have vinyl cut and pressed on over top as more heat pressing may cause further damage. If I need to send the jersey to have this done, that's not a problem. Any information and/or advice is appreciated. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
