Sign-Up For An Old Favorite:
Also be sure to check out the ‘By Demand’ section on the homepage of Geeky Jerseys. There you can sign-up to be notified by email if an old favorite is coming back. The more people who sign-up for a design, the greater the odds of an encore.
The great people from WEP loved the Voltron hockey jersey design so much they adopted it as an official product. You can head to their official store website by clicking the image above or here.
They are selling for $130 each before shipping. Obviously that is $50 more than what Rinkgear and I were offering them for, but please remember: we were doing these non-profit. The price is also in line with the NHL and other geeky hockey jerseys, but those don’t come with name and numbers. So you’re getting a lot of bang for your buck. This jersey also features several embroidered crests.
The design you see above is the current offering. The name and letters are VOLTRON and 84. I hope to do more designs for Voltron hockey jerseys in the near future.
Another amazing jersey completed by Rinkgear! I love it. It evokes the simplicity of the Detroit Red Wings, albeit with a much larger color palette. Just amazing work by the folks at Rinkgear.
Lots of patches and beautiful embroidery work on the main shield. UPDATE: Turns out, Rinkgear embroidered every patch on this jersey – all the Lion numbers and the ‘star’ logo. Wow.
Announcement: These will be available at C2E2 (April 13th-15th) at Voltron’s booth (#430). So swing by and say hello to the folks from WEP and check out the jerseys. Maybe you’ll see a few people wearing them on the show floor too.
Here is a second sneak peek at the Voltron 2.0 jerseys. As you can see, it features an embroidered crest, twill letters and numbers, and several patches. This one is the first to roll off the assembly line, the rest will be completed this week. They will ship sometime next week.
Looks beautiful, doesn’t it? I love the simplicity – matches my simpleton tastes.
Rinkgear has sent me a few pics of the crests for the currently-in-production Direwolves 3.0 and Voltron 2.0 jerseys. Not only do they look amazing, but this is further proof that this isn’t some fly-by-night operation. Though I still have a suitcase packed in case there is a revolt.
The Direwolves is a new non-infringing logo that is 100% embroidered this time (2.0 was a mix of embroidery and twill), while Voltron gets the embroidered treatment this time, as 1.0 was entirely sublimated.
I am quite impressed with the Voltron one, as I forgot to specify shiny metallic for the grey colors, but Rinkgear has my back. Right now the crest is reflecting light, which is why the blue looks so aqua. Makes for a nice safety feature if you are out at night.
I’m looking forward to seeing the Browncoats and Targaryen Dragon crests.
For those asking, Game Of Thrones jerseys will be back in late April/early May. Voltron jerseys will no longer be available here.
