Customization let’s your team stand out off the field as well as on it! Longstreth has noticed a definite trend towards team customization –from lacrosse heads strung with team colors to socks with team names and everything in between!

Friends' Central Custom Sublimated Nike Uniform

Custom stringing is a great way to stand out. Longstreth has custom strung heads for entire teams, such as Rutgers, Dartmouth, and Yale; as well as for individual players. The possibilities are endless – red/white/blue, team colors, neon.

Sublimated uniforms and apparel are a growing women’s trend on and off the field. Customization options are endless, team names, colors, and logos are as individual as the team itself. The Phantastix club team selected an exclusive Longstreth sublimated reversible jersey as their team uniform. Friends’ Central School chose the Nike sublimated Elite uniform. Teams are increasingly choosing sublimated uniforms, not just because of the customization options, but for their lightweight performance fabrics and durability.

Backpacks are also popular items to have customized. Longstreth has the capabilities to embroider team names, player names, and numbers on a wide variety of bags. Two of the most stylish are the DeBeer Women’s Gearpack and Under Armour’s Lacrosse Backpack. Both feature a front panel that lends itself perfectly for embellishment.

Many teams today are choosing custom team socks to finish off their look. Teams like Kean University have purchased socks with their team name and logo. The order minimums are low and delivery is usually in 4-6 weeks.

Custom Socks are the new Must-Have Product for any team

All customized items have minimum purchase requirements. Longstreth’s friendly, knowledgeable team representatives are available to help teams find exactly what they want and still keep within a budget.
