    Need to change the nameplate on an older habs jersey. Number will stay the same. Where can i get a good job done at a reasonable price?

    P.S. It's #8, i'll let you figure out what the swap is :naughty:

    Think outside the box a bit, remember the days when the name was on a rectangle piece of material and then sewn on.

    If you can't get the name removed, perhaps you can get a new piece of the same material and cover it up, then put the new name on top.

    Few options

    It's very easy to unstitching yourself. (Buy a stitch picker $4) I bought one because I've now used it 4 times for various jerseys.

    Step two would be to either order new name plate & letters from somewhere like http://www.coolhockey.com/Player-Kits/c10/index.html

    Or find a local retailer whom will send out or do stitching in house.
    There is a place in Kingston ontario that will do any name for about $40

    The other option is take or send to bell centre although I'm unsure of the cost for this method.

    Used to be $25 at the Bell Centre. I imagine it's the same price. It'll take them a week or so to get it back to you, though.

    Thanks will look into this.

    How's the quality at the bell center? Is it the same crap they sell on NHL.com which is some sticker version?

    If you're getting a name stitched on, it's the official pro lettering.

    You got burned buying a Woywitka jersey too? I thought I was the only one.
