How to Create Your Own Football Jersey Online

The legendary Green Bay Packers football coach, Vince Lombardi once said; "You play for the name on the front of the jersey, not the name on the back." A football jersey is so much more than just a way to differentiate the two teams, it is also a source of pride and motivation for the player. Teams are bound together by the jerseys they wear, so much time and thought should be put into creating a football jersey.

      Visit one of the many websites that offer customizable football jerseys. If you are looking for a personalized jersey of your favorite NFL or college team, Eastbay.com is a quality place to look. However, if this is for your own team or your school's team, thesportingstore.com or teamsportwear.com are sites that offer this service.

      Decide on the material from which you would like your jersey made. Mesh or nylon are the two most notable options; however, cotton jerseys are also available for a more vintage, throwback look.

      Choose the lettering style and font. Replica lettering is a style in which the name and numbers are painted on the jersey. With the authentic style, the numbers are sown on; however, this will cost more.

      Decide on the correct number for your position. Numbers 1 to 19 are reserved for the quarterback, while 20 to 49 are reserved for running backs and defensive backs. Numbers 50 to 60 are used primarily by linebackers, while numbers 61 to 79, and numbers 90 to 99 are worn by offensive and defensive linemen. Wide receivers and tight ends have numbers from 80 to 89.

      Select a properly sized jersey. If you are a fan getting a personalized team jersey just select the size you normally wear. However, if this jersey is going to be used in an actual football game, it is best to get the jersey one or two sizes too big, to allow it to easily go on over the bulky football pads.
