My cycling group wants to get a 'team jersey'. Anyone have a recommendation for a place to
get a set?

Thanks,

Our club was able to get Garneau jerseys custom printed for ~$50. Voler is good, but if you wish to
compare...

Our club's last order was from VOMax. Great service, a nice small company in rural Mass that hires
locally, excellent quality. www.vomax.com

To see the jersey we ordered, see www.juneau.com/freewheel

In the latest Performance catalog, it appears that they're getting into the business as well.

Don't know. Just saw them in the catalog, and don't have it to hand right now.

I just got a catalog from Performance. According to this catalog, they are *not* making custom
jerseys. What they will sell you is a pre-printed jersey with large white blank spaces where you can
silk screen your own logos. This is probably an inexpensive solution for people who only need a
small number of jerseys though the results won't be nearly as attractive as good quality full sized
custom art work.

and unfortunately, you are defeating the wicking capability of the jersey fabric by printing it with
silkscreen ink. the fibers where the ink is printed will loose not only any wicking capability, but
also any capability to breathe at all, since silk screen inks will blot up all the space betweent
threads in the fabric.

if you want jerseys that wick moisture properly, they need to be printed with a dye sublimation
process, not silkscreened.

The "large blank space" is perhaps the size of a standard sheet of paper (makes it easier for
local screeners), and that's a fraction of the entire jersey area. Doubtful that a local club
would opt for 100% coverage on their screen (i.e. entirely saturate the black space so that it's
covered with ink). There are still sleeves, and another 75% or so of the jersey body with no
silkscreen ink. OP might want to try Good Stuff sportswear. They produce very small runs very
inexpensively, and they even do pocketed tees at a much lower price point. It's run by former
employees of the original owner (mentioned in another post in this thread) and I believe they
know how to follow instructions. --Karen M. worked there one spring
