Yeh, that's the risk you run if you're gonna go with an outside company to do your customization. Outside companies use what they call Authentic Pro Fonts or NHL & NHLPA Licensed Customization. Close (some closer than others), but not exact to on-ice. If you did their preview jersey button, I don't think I'd expect the jersey to look exactly like their image, either. Seems like it's just a quick preview that gives a quick general idea of what it'll look like. I see the autographed jerseys they're selling, too and you're right, the lettering on those jerseys is brutal. Maybe email them and ask for a pic of an avs jersey they've done. Can't hurt to ask.
Prices are higher, but I've heard good things about IceJerseys and I know HockeyMonkey does (or did at one point) on-ice jerseys for the Minnesota Wild so they know what they're doing. I guess you get what you pay for. For me (broken record here) I'd save up a few more bucks, buy a new blank from Ebay - premier or authentic, doesn't matter - and send it off to Denver Athletic. Complete peace of mind and no worries at all about fonts, lettering, etc. A little more $ but you know you won't be disappointed. $130 for something you hate, are embarrassed of, and won't wear is like taking your buck thirty and burning it. Lots worse than $200 for something you love, know without a shadow of a doubt that it's right, and are proud to wear.
