The Dos and Don’ts of Designing Youth Baseball Jerseys
With the arrival of spring, there’s a good chance that you or someone you know will be involved with youth sports in some capacity. And with spring being synonymous with baseball, there’s another chance that you might have the responsibility of getting uniforms designed. In order to prepare for this and to avoid some common mistakes, we’re presenting this handy guide on what to do and what not to do.
Uniforms are imperative to any team sport, and choosing the right colors makes all of the difference in the world. Which ones should you pick? Two that are tried and true are powder blue and grey. The former of these has been making a notable comeback in recent years and certainly appeals to fans of the Montreal Expos. Grey is almost always in style, and it tends to be inexpensive.
As far as what you DON’T do, black and white are two colors you want to avoid utilizing. Black attracts a lot of sunlight, and with summer right around the corner, you’re going to want something to beat the heat. While white might not attract heat like black does, keeping them white among the dirt and grass stains is next to impossible.
Now that we’ve covered which colors are best to utilize and stay away from, what about designs? The secret to any sharp-looking baseball uniform is a simple design that catches the eye. Think back to some of the most memorable designs that stick out in your mind’s eye. Pinstripes, solid color schemes, and unique fonts are the way to go. This is one case where less is more.
As far as what you should stay away from, try to steer clear of large designs that cover the entire back or front of a jersey. A simple logo near the left or right breast pocket is always a popular choice; there’s no need to go all out. It’s also a bad idea to try to be too much of a copycat or have a uniform that looks too much like normal clothes. This is your chance to be creative!
