5 Style Tips for Designing Varsity Jackets, Alexandria, Minnesota

Varsity jackets are among the most quintessential types of custom apparel to ever exist. Coveted by high school athletes all across the nation, these exclusive jackets are earned through teamwork and dedication. While designing yours will be an exciting stepping stone, it’s also important to bear a few considerations in mind. By weighing your decisions carefully, you’ll ensure your jacket is made according to your precise wishes.

5 Things to Think About When Designing Varsity Jackets

1. Colors

Choose colors that match your school colors. If possible, bring a uniform, t-shirt, hoodie, or another type of custom apparel with your school colors into the shop to make sure the right hues are selected. Or, consider emailing an image as an example. Avoid picking colors by eye, as you could pick a hue too dark or too light.

2. Front Text

3. Back Text

There are a few considerations to choose from for the back of your jacket. This side usually features bold, block letters with the name of the school, the sport, or the word “varsity.” You can also incorporate your graduating year.

4. Images

In addition to the text on the back of your jacket, you’ll also want to choose an image. These are prominently displayed and symbolize the athlete’s chosen sport. You can opt for your school’s mascot, as well.

5. Sleeve Design

Finally, you can also decide what you’d like to include on the sleeves of your custom apparel. These spots are also good for placement of your graduating year, as well as your team number and school logo.
