Printing - Introduction

Subside Sports offers one of the most professional and reliable shirt printing services available anywhere in the world. In operation since 1997, our team has handled thousands of different name & number styles in various materials and with differing application processes. It is this knowledge and experience acquired over the last 2 decades that has allowed us to achieve a reputation for authenticity and accuracy unparalleled in the industry.

Ordering Info


Some shirts can be printed with the official name & number of a player of your choice. Select from the 'Official Key Player' menu to choose the team player and official squad number.

Numbering Styles


With some shirts we offer more than one style of printing, so please be sure to select your preferred style. In addition, we often offer optional sleeve patches and sponsors as add-on options which can also be added via pull-down menus.



In instances when we are able to offer personal name and number with a shirt a free text entry box appears. After selecting your size and any sleeve patch option, simply type the name, exactly as you wish it to appear on the back of the shirt, followed by the number, exactly as you wish it to appear in the personalization box as shown above.

Fan Style vs. Official Style

We are proud to offer our “Fan Style” printing option with many jerseys for which official printing is not available to us. In most cases the fan style is quite close to the official printing in font, color, texture and size to the official name and number, with the largest difference often being the lack of the club or federation crest at the base of the numbers. Unless otherwise specified as fan style (or another seldom used novelty style), all names and numbers on the site, whether offered as an add-on option or offered already on a shirt, are the official name and number.

The Printing Process

Step 1

Step 1

Your shirt is carefully placed over the plate of a heat-press and any creases or wrinkles are removed.

Step 2

Step 2

The name and number you've chosen is carefully positioned in accordance with the exact application instructions for your particular shirt. With 1000's of different styles available it is vital to have experienced staff on hand.


Step 3

The correct time and temperature is selected in accordance with specifications and the upper heat plate is brought down onto the transfers to complete the printing process.

Step 4

Step 4

If you have ordered sleeve patches or any sponsors or other transfers these will be applied using the same process.

Step 5

Step 5

The backing is removed from the transfers and a quality check is performed to ensure your shirt is finished exactly as it should be. Your completed order is then passed on to our warehouse team for shipping.

Processing Time

The addition of printed items to an order adds on average 3-5 days to an order, which may vary depending on the time of year or stock availability. As always, if you have any questions about your order status or stock availability, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Please Note

While we make every effort to detect what we perceive to be any errors in spelling or number selection for a given player, the final responsibility for providing the correct information remains with the customer. Please verify the spelling and number selection on any player names and number. If you are unsure about these options or have any other questions concerning the ordering process please contact us at [email protected].

PLEASE NOTE: Shirts that have been printed with a personalised Name and/or number cannot be returned for a refund or replacement. Unless there has been an error on our part.

At this time Subside Sports does not have a printing department in Australia. The printing department utilized for any orders on the Australian site is located in the United Kingdom. Sending a shirt to the UK for printing and then sending it back to Australia is not cost effective, and carries with it the risk of being lost, damaged, or assessed import duties by either (or both) countries. As such, the application of name and number and/or sleeve patches to shirts already owned by customers in Australia is not a service provided through the Australian Branch of Subside Sports. Please do not send any shirts to our Australian Branch requesting us to apply a name and number and/or sleeve patch.
