Stripping off original customizations on a jersey is a very delicate process. When any of the original numbering or nameplate needs to be changed, each stitch must be removed by hand to ensure there will be no damage to the material of the jersey. In most cases the numbers and nameplate gently "fall off" and the new jersey customization is completed as requested.
However, a few key factors come into play when the original customizing needs to be replaced. The most important factor is the age of the jersey itself, followed by how the numbers were originally applied and finally how many times the jersey itself may have been washed. In some cases prior customizing leaves glue residue, coloration from bleeding dyes from the numbers/nameplate, or numerous holes from "over-stitching/embroidery". With these in mind, Action Spot Sports has the right to deny any removal requests if we feel the jersey's condition is not suitable for the process. In some instances, if it is anticipated there will be an immense difficulty with the removal of the original customizing, a team member from Action Spot Sports will reach out to discuss the next feasible option to maintain your jersey's quality.
Our stripping fees can range from $25-$55 and in some cases increase depending on how the jersey's initial customization was sewn. For example, if you have a jersey with numbers containing 3-colors and each layer is sewn into the jersey you will be charged a higher stripping fee than if only one of the layers was sewn.
If you are uncertain if your jersey would be a suitable candidate for Action Spot Sports to remove its original customization, please feel free to reach out to us! Usually it is always significantly easier for us to identify what the jersey's initial state is like if we have it in our possession, however emailing photos of the jersey in question is always a great start too.
