With the spring season heating up as players of all ages hit fields across the country,
the summer months may seem like a distant dream. However, with a plethora of
custom uniform options for men and women designed to cater to a diverse range of team needs
available; now is the time for coaches and program administrators to turn their
attention toward outfitting their teams for the summer circuit.
For the better part of the last decade, any discussion involving summer lacrosse
uniforms and apparel would be incomplete without a heavy dose of sublimation.
Sublimated garments are decorated by a digital dyeing process by which a design is
dyed into the fabric (as opposed to printed upon it) producing a vibrant finished
product that (unlike screen printing) does not crack, fade or peel over time. Once
looked upon as a passing fad intended for teams seeking an over-the-top look,
custom dye sublimation has found it’s place as the favorite of programs looking to
sport a totally custom look, brand themselves and even market their players to

Need evidence of the impact sublimated technology has had on the world of custom
sportswear? Look no further than the latest offerings from Nike’s Digital Quick Turn
(DQT) & Flow collections; as well as those from the Under Armour ArmourFuse line.
These two sportswear heavy-hitters offer the ability for consumers to merge the
uncompromised quality each are known for with the ability to create a custom
selection of uniforms and apparel intended to give their teams a professional look –
all while utilizing the very latest advancements in technical fabrics and construction.
In addition to offerings from these globally recognized brands, Warrior (Boy’s/Men)
& Brine (Girl’s/Women) have hopped on board the sublimation wagon and offer a
full lineup known as ChromaGear - intended as an option for teams looking to go
beyond the constraints of traditional athletic screen printing in favor of a custom
branded setup that offers the flexibility to add practical elements like a player’s last
name and/or graduation year to a uniform. New to this year’s ChromaGear
offerings is a sleeveless boy’s/men’s game jersey that combines a sublimated jersey
with an all-new cut specifically designed to be worn when temperatures rise.

a completely custom option at a fraction of the price.
