Sewn On Lettering or Iron On (For Customizing Jerseys)

I'm going to get my Canucks jerseys customized and at a sport clothing store in St.John's and was wondering about the lettering.

I can get Iron on lettering for the name and number(on back on sleeves) for $20-$25.

But to get them sewn on is close on $50. I know that getting them sewn on would be the better choice.

I wanna know if anyone has any experience with either option and what they could tell me about it. Thanks

Spend a little extra now, get the sewn-on lettering and enjoy your jersey long term.

Sewn-on names and numbers look much better and last longer.

If this is a cheap practice jersey that you'll wear at shinny, go for the iron-on. If it's a replica or pro jersey, go with the sew-on.

I have a 11-year-old Oilers jersey that's still going strong with a sewn-on name and number. On the other hand, I have a generic RBK practice jersey with my name and number heat-pressed on, and after a year small pieces are coming off.

The heat press (iron on) numbers/letters doesn't look half as good; if you have more than one colour numbers the top layer of colour will eventually peel off.

The sewn on tackle twill numbers/letters are much better.

If you are planning on customize many jerseys you could consider buying tackle twill and doing it yourself. The local hockey shops in my city contract what little tackle twill numbering they have to a local seamstress; she has sold me tackle twill several times. Have made my own crests, numbers, and names.
