    Making a font from vector images

    I've actually made vector copies of the Fonts. I'll see what I can do with fontstruct and Font Forge. Thanks for the tips!

    Making a font from vector images

    First off, if this thread needs to be moved, please do so and accept my apology for putting it in the wrong spot. The store I work for has created a custom letter and number font for our biggest account. there will be a few hundred jerseys with front and back numbers, so to provide an .AI for each set of digits is not something I nor the manufacturer care to do. All that to say, does anyone have a suggestion for a font making software that would make this easier?

    My, my, my. Both of those have some REAL possibilities!

    Atypical and Defunct Uniform Suppliers of Note

    Halas's company was called King O'Shea, and they were affiliated with Wilson. Man this thread is bringing back some memories!

    Russell Athletic Returning to the Uniform Game

    I doubt they’ll be really going after many colleges or major high schools. This will largely be good for the smaller high schools and travel teams who want high quality without the UA or Nike price tag. As an Augusta dealer, I’m thrilled.

    MLB changes 2018?

    My only experience (unfortunately) with Miller Park is on television, but I've always found it to be a pleasant looking park. The glass wall makes it look open from the televised shots.

    MLB changes 2018?

    I wish the Tigers would have got that memo about shrinking cap logos. The Marlin cap looks better with the smaller logo.

    I have a Canadiens one and love it. With the chest stripe, it has a one layer printed twill logo. I’m interested in the Leafs and Oilers ones at least if I can find them, which is impossible in Ohio. I really wish they were made more widely available. I think it’s a great option for those not willing to put out $100, and don’t want a knockoff.

    Screened CCM logo on those, too. Very odd. Must be a new version, like an authentic version the Heroes of Hockey series?

    2018 Winter Olympics Hockey Uniforms

    To quote a friend "I can't drink enough to think that's pretty". Those are horrible.

    Yes, I was referring to the Stahl's kits that many shops use.

    From what I was told, the Oilers lettering kits sold through Stahls (and ultimately applied by most retailers) they will be one layer printed twill. Apparently there are 6 or 7 teams that will have their letter and number kits offered this way. The others will be supplied in layered twill as always. I have no idea how EPS, Keener or the other shops who cut their own materials will handle it.

    The '68 Tigers' Mysteriously Mismatched Sleeve Numbers

    They were made by different manufacturers. If you get a good look, the left sleeve numbers are MacGregor's font, the the right sleeve ones are the standard MLB block sans serif font for front numbers. MacGregor, Wilson and Rawlings all made Tiger uniforms, and often were intermingled by the equipment staff.

    I didn't get a great look, but I think there is some Lextra happening on the "C" on the Red Wings sweater they show. I am really intrigued to get my hands on one of these. Not excited, because I expect to be underwhelmed, but intrigued.

    I agree, the only thing I would have wanted is to keep the flared stripe on the pants and the orange wrist roll and fingers on the gloves.
