LETTERING TIPS
Player names on jerseys—what size should the letters be? Here’s the trick. Check the learn roster and find the longest name. Then spell out that name on the jersey in a specific letter height (say, 3 inches). If the letters don't touch the sleeve seams, fine. If they do touch the seams, go to the next smaller size letter.

 

Standard Sizes for Numbers for Football Jerseys.
Youth jerseys: 6 in. front and 8 in. back.
High school: 8 in. front and 10 in. back.
College: 10 in. and 12 in. back.
   
BE CAREFUL:
When selecting sizes when name is also ordered that part of a player's number not be covered by his pants. Our tip: Lay out the chosen number size and name size in correct positions on the smallest size of jersey that will be used. If the bottom of the number might be covered by the pants, go to the next smaller sizes of letters and numerals.
 
Look out for the S, H and 8: It's easy to get them upside down when applying standard design lettering. When correctly positioned, the lower holes of all three characters are noticeably bigger than the upper holes.
