A Guide to Printing Baseball Uniforms for Your Team

As an avid baseball player myself, I understand how professional and competitive a match can become in just a few seconds. And even though your opponent may not know much about the dynamics of your team, but if you create an impression, your opponents will bow down to the pressure.

If you are stepping into the field wearing baseball jerseys, just think how poised and professional your team will look with your club or team’s logo. Luckily, with so many printing options available in the market, getting a custom uniform is not a difficult job at all.

With a multitude of decoration experts and decorations methods available in the market, you just need to find out the right decoration expert for your team’s uniform. But if you are not sure about which printing expert to choose, we will help you out.

Today, as we discuss some of the experts in this field, I will take you down to the journey of customized uniforms, and discuss all the possible printing aspects briefly. From printing baseball jerseys for men all the way to women’s baseball jerseys, we will talk about fabrics, printing options and the designs.

First, you need to create a logo for your baseball team uniforms. So what if you play on weekends. Having a logo and a team name gives a charging feeling that you truly are representing a team. And this is similar with the uniforms.

Get your logo designed, choose the base color of your uniform and see how it looks on a mockup. If you like the design and the colors match your team’s theme, use it. If don’t, you need to re-visit your logo colors and coordinate with your team members accordingly.

Types of printing available in the market

Before you choose a printing option for your team’s uniform, you may want to get a little knowledge and information about the types of printing methods you can get access to in the market. Usually, each team has a different rule, but the most common type of printing used in baseball jersey’s & team uniforms is Sublimation. 

Other than that, twill-based printing, DTG, Heat Pressing, and Screen Printing are popular, so whatever you choose depends solely on your printing budget. Let us get to know some of these printing methods a little more.

  • Screen printing – Screen printing is all about applying colored-based ink into the fabric through a meshed stencil. You can add a color or two in screen printing, but if your design has more colors, you can add them as well.
  • Sublimation – Your logo design, team colors will be printed on the fabric directly. The printing takes place in such a manner that the design and the color will never fade away from the fabric – even after numerous washes.
  • Heat transfer – The process for heat transfer is very straight forward. The ink is applied on the fabric through heat press, giving you a colorful design.
  • Twill printing – For a more conventional uniform look, you can choose twill printing. Twill printing is all about sewing different patches. Normally, the printers allow two or more colors, but if your logo has more, choose a different decoration method.

Useful tip for you to remember

Even though all the above mentioned decoration methods are a bit on the expensive side, I personally believe Twill printing is the best for baseball jerseys and team uniforms. Use this method for a professionally appealing look.

Printing baseball uniforms

Like many other sports uniforms, baseball jerseys and uniforms are designed and manufactured from polyester/cotton fabrics. Conventionally, they are coated in flat colors and may have checked designs, stripes, or other colors. 

However, many professional baseball teams have uniforms designed from some of the biggest brands. The fabric is different, the colors are complex and overall add a creative appeal to the design.

The concept of home and away uniforms is somewhat new in baseball and varies as per the rules and regulations of the league. But home teams normally wear white-colored uniforms for a more eccentric look.

You can customize baseball collars and caps too

The collars in the baseball team uniforms are typically covered in logo colors. They are either striped, multi-colored, or single colored. If your uniform is white, you can add a flair in your uniforms and make the collars colored for a refreshing look.

Baseball caps are flat and are either in single colors or plain colors. They are normally designed with different sections like a button on the top, a brim that covers you from the sun and the elastic on the back for adjustment. 

You can customize the caps in multi-colors or keep them simple, the choice is entirely yours.
