We are happy to announce that we have added 3 new premium jerseys to our collection that have been designed by Taylor Vause at Full Stride Designs. The first jersey is our Blue jersey. It has our primary logo on the front and our alternate logo on the shoulders. The middle jersey is our Red jersey. This jersey features our alternate logo on the front and the primary logo on the shoulders. The third jersey that we have released is our Alternate Blue jersey. This again uses the alternate logo as the front but on a blue jersey.
Youth and adult sizes are available. Jerseys can be personalized with a name and number or left blank and are made in the USA by Sublimation Kings. $5.00 from every jersey will be donated to the JDRF. Orders can be placed via our online store at https://squareup.com/store/HockeyFightsT1D
Jerseys are sublimated on Heavy Vapor made with Intera™ yarn, the only patented permanent moisture transport technology that makes fabric cooler, warmer, soil resistant, and bacteria resistant. The technology is in the yarn, not a coating applied later. Washing Intera™ fabrics creates zero loss in moisture management performance. This material suits ice hockey jerseys the best as it’s more durable and heavier.
The design of the jersey displays many icons which have an important meaning in the Type 1 Diabetes community. Featured on the front of the jersey is the Hockey Fights T1D logo (originally designed by graphic designer Mike Verminski). The center features a grey ribbon, which is the color chosen to represent Type 1 Diabetes. The ribbon features a blood drop, which represent the testing of blood glucose, a key component of managing T1D. A blue circle, an international symbol in the diabetes community, surrounds the gray ribbon. “The color blue reflects the sky that unites all nations and is the color of the United Nations flag. The blue circle signifies the unity of the global diabetes community in response to the diabetes pandemic.” Two crossed sticks are the background of the circle and ribbon. The 2 hockey sticks represents our method of spreading awareness, and helping to raise money for new therapies and a cure. The shoulders feature the drop of blood again, representing the many blood tests per day that Type 1 Diabetics must perform; as well as the one drop of blood that can be used to diagnose someone and save their life.
