Baseball is America’s pastime, but football might best capture the heartbeat of the country. From high school to college to the professional levels, communities come together around their football team like few others, and everyone knows who they’ll be watching on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in the fall.
Few sports require as much protective gear as football, which places unique demands on football uniforms. Here are a few pointers and recommendations to put together the right uniform for your team.
Football uniforms have grown up with the game
Early in the game’s history, players wore much smaller pads and their helmets were little more than a leather head covering. In those days, a uniform that was well-ventilated yet strong enough to not tear might have been just a distant dream. But it is a reality today. With significant advancements in the world of fabric, almost everything is possible (and we continue to work on the remaining improvements).
Sublimated uniforms are the best option for reliable, distinctive, high quality football uniforms. Sublimated printing means that all the print colors will be infused in the fabric. This eliminates that weird sticky feeling that dyes can sometimes leave on a shirt. More importantly, sublimation printing guarantees the colors and logos stay intact for as long as the shirt lives. The logo will not crack, peel or anything else.
Polyester is the best fabric for the sublimation process. At CustomJersey.com, we have 100% polyester, 150 denier weight Durastar pro game mesh body, with two-ply Dazzle shoulders / sleeves. We also have other fabrics available so you have a lot to choose from.
Some of our favorite football jerseys, pants and uniform sets
Children like having colors in their uniforms - it keeps them motivated, gives them a sense of team belonging and lets them show off to their friends. You can scroll through social media to see what colors children like, and you can put your team’s colors to a team vote.
But if you want a sure shot for a color that everyone will like and that can stay with your team for years, nothing beats blue.
CUSTOM SUBLIMATED FOOTBALL JERSEY DESIGN 0905 is the perfect example of the lot. The white and sky blue colors complement each other well and the polyester makes the fabric extra sturdy.
For the men, several choices stand out but one design that will fit just about any team is the GOAL LINE CUSTOM SUBLIMATED FOOTBALL UNIFORM. The colors ensure that the uniform looks mature and works for the full range of players on your team.
With women’s football growing in popularity, we think the DECLEATER CUSTOM SUBLIMATED FOOTBALL UNIFORM is the one you can pick right off the shelf, place your logos and number and be good to go for kickoff. The yellow base with green print is the right contrast, leaving the fans with no doubt who you are and the opponents feeling like they are always facing 4th and long.
If you’re looking for just pants, some of the pants options we offer are the CUSTOM SUBLIMATED FOOTBALL PANT DESIGN 03 (DENVER STYLE) and the CUSTOM SUBLIMATED FOOTBALL PANT DESIGN 04.
We also provide complete uniform sets. Our recommendation here is CUSTOM SUBLIMATED FOOTBALL UNIFORM SET DESIGN 1242. The contrasts are just right, and the turmeric color of the jersey goes really well with the white print on top and blue pants at the bottom.
But don’t feel limited by the ideas you see in the pictures here! You can customize the jersey with your choice of color and opt for a sublimated pant that goes well with the jersey.
Sizes you can choose from
Football jerseys and pants have to cover a lot of equipment: shoulder pads, hip pads, thigh pads, kneepads and jockstrap. Players, of course, also wear helmets, mouthpieces and gloves.
To accommodate all this gear, football jerseys have extra broad shoulders, and football pants are extra loose around the knees, hips and other areas.
For youth, you can order anywhere between the sizes S-XL. Adult sizes run For adult sizes run from S-6XL.
