    FWIW I have waited up to 5 months for a jersey from EPS. It's a long time, but their quality and price makes it worth it.

    Average time I wait is about 8-10 weeks. Shortest turnaround time was a little over 3 weeks.

    There have been some instances of EPS being finished with a customers jersey and just not following up or communicating until later on. Your jersey may very well be done earlier than when you hear from them, but assuming they have a lot of other stuff going on, that could be why there is a bit of a delay.

    Doesn't hurt to check in if you don't hear anything after 2 months or so just to see where things are at and being understanding that they are busy.

    I checked on them about once a month and they had issues with getting the exact font correct for my jersey. It was a white KC Scouts replica jersey and I believe they said mine was the first they have gotten. This was years ago.

    Also keep in mind EPS does a lot of pro teams and not just in the NHL. Right now in the NHL I know they still do Carolina, Washington and Florida as well as the ASG jerseys. We were the 4th team but I am not aware of any others. However a lot of college teams, minors/juniors, HS and independent leagues use them and internet orders from collectors are the least priority. Josh from EPS once stated that website orders account for about only 5% of their total volume, so we really are small potatoes compared to their other business.

    Also as a head's up, EPS posted today on their FB site that due to St. Patrick's day team orders as well as end of year team orders (most likely playoffs and OTB night jerseys) with hard deadlines the website orders are going to get delayed a bit until they cleared out the aforementioned team orders first.

    Just saw Colin's post lol.

    They must have received the St. Patrick's day jerseys late from the manufacturer which wouldn't be the first time.

    Those end of season sets mean either playoff sets or Off Their Back night sets (those are typically sets worn in the final game of the season and then given to fans who are typically STH and are selected by the team).

    Even this years Adidas? That would be great. I have a blank that I'd like customized with Boyle. :)

    Honestly I am not sure who did this year's. Could have been EPS but I am not sure.

    I was curious what their post meant by this. I know we always did throwback jerseys for St. Patty's Day but do other teams do special jerseys? Is this just jerseys for pre-game warmups?

    Pretty much those. Most teams in the league these days wear those St. Patrick's Day themed jerseys for warmups and are then auctioned off.

    Even a ton of minors, juniors and independent leagues do this too (along with other weird themed nights).

    Just saw I received an email from coolhockey on March 22nd at 6:39pm

    48 hour flash sale if anyone interested,
    30% off site wide with code FLASH30

    Fully customizable stitched authentic at $249 would come to $174.30. The pre-stiched are $30 less but involve heat pressing numbers prior to sewing on. Fully stitched is worth the extra $30 imo.

    Fun fact, they list Nico as the 2nd best seller in jerseys

    Why would this be? Only reason I could come up with is not being able to remove the numbers later on.

    It's just a personal preference, I prefer the look and the work that goes into it.

    Removing names/numbers doesn't factor into the decision for me either way.

    Won this last night in the Elias night auction that ended last night: Damon Severson Elias retirement night game worn. Worn by Severson throughout the game on 2/24/18. Has little wear due to it being a 1 game wonder, but I love the custom set tag with 26 in the background. Really nice LOA with it as well. Really happy with it is from the retirement night of my favorite all time Devil Patrik Elias

    Got my order back from Exclusive Pro. Red/Green Elias showed up a week too late to wear for the [email protected] St. Patrick's Day game which is too bad.

    Also got a Sykora done. Will have to add the Stanley Cup patches eventually.

    Hello all. Need to get some adult jerseys stitched up with names and numbers and 2 kids jerseys set up with names and numbers.

    Who are people using these days? Is Dorholt still a go to?

    I'm looking to find a place that would do customized kids jerseys. My 9-year-old daughter wants a Miles Wood jersey. Fanatics customizes kids jerseys but only in one color white (no black trim). I'd like to get her something a little more realistic.

    Thanks to @Colin226 I was able to visit MeiGray Group in person at their warehouse. The place is AMAZING.
    If my credit card had unlimited funds, I'd end up broke.
    But, I did by my first ever game worn jersey. I wanted a white Adidas as I already have 3 Edge 2.0 jerseys (2 team issued, 1 retail).
    Managed to pick up a cheap(ish) Blandisi jersey worn in pre-season with 100th Centennial patch.
    Love that I now have a Made in Canada authentic white Adidas jersey.
    Anyway, here are pics, cos that's what we're here for ;)

    CoolHockey or IceJerseys are both very good.

    Thanks! one final question ideally. Is the Devils style of customization layered or reverse kiss cut?

    Layered. Always layered as the Devils have never used kiss-cut.

    My wife wants to remove Kovalchuk from her jersey. Does anyone know of a place near central jersey we can have that done?

    Probably a dumb question, but do they sell shirseys of old players at the team store or anywhere for that matter? Stevens perhaps?
