When designing a custom parka for a team or an individual athlete here are some important things to consider:
The Front of the Parka:
Commonly swimmers embroider their names on the right of left chest of the parka. Small logos may be added too!
Lettering Options: On average the names are about 1 inch tall. You may choose from cursive or block lettering. We generally limit characters to 12, but if you have a special need for more letters please contact us directly.
The Back of the Parka:
