Dear Sir / Madam.
I was looking at this product:
The Manchester City home shirt.
However, I could not see from the product description what kind of printing is being used to customize the shirt ?
Is it the player’s version PS PRO or is it the replica version PU transfer ?
Thank you for your time.

2015-16 Portugal Away Jersey Review

By Julian Smith, NYC

Portugal away jersey 2015/16 | back in black

Portugal away jersey in black
Portugal: a country of 10 million people and some of the most recognized football icons on the planet. Super agent Jorge Mendes, super manager José Mourinho, and super hero Cristiano Ronaldo all hail from the Western-most European nation that has experienced staggered footballing success. A Seleção das Quinas first appeared on the football map with the emergence of Eusébio, who led Portugal to a third place finish at the 1966 World Cup. Some years of anonymity ensued, followed by a golden generation: which included the likes of Luís Figo, Rui Costa, Pauleta, and Vítor Baía. While those stars underwhelmed in their prime, eventually Portugal finished in 2nd place at Euro 2004, and in 4th place at the 2006 World Cup. That era ended as the era of Cristiano Ronaldo began, but his international teammates have relied too much on his superior abilities and have not been able to seriously challenge for a trophy of late. There is promise for the future, though, as a number of youngsters have shown serious ability, dominating many at the 2015 U-21 European Championship before suffering a shock loss to the Swedish. Hopefully, the elusive first trophy will enter the empty cabinet after Euro 2016 and get Portugal on a winning track.
In the meantime, they can hope that Nike continues to ensure they at least look good on the pitch. The 2015 away jersey is stunning in appearance, but leaves much to be desired when worn.
The Shirt
Portugal away jersey - front number 7
Nike used a v-neck with a bottom lip, which I rather like on this shirt given that it all blends together. The v-neck is also used on the 2015 USA home shirts, but the contrasting colors make it look much more awkward. The red accent around the opening with infused green piping adds a nice bit of flair.
Portugal away kit detail
In this close up, you can see the poor material quality. Honestly, just by looking at it I think you can see how uncomfortable it is… on a happier note, the badge is nicely sewn into the shirt with black stitching.
Portugal front number details
The Nike logo is in red, which works well with everything else. Green would’ve looked out of place and white would be too much contrast.
Portugal away kit - details
The sides of the shirt have a porous strip to allow for extra ventilation. It is much more breathable than the main pieces of fabric and I could absolutely see how it would help cool you down on a hot day.
Portugal away shirt inside out
Inverting the shirt shows the discolored interior. I still don’t know why this is, but it cannot be good. I have a feeling this is a product of the deteriorating material quality used more recently in mainstream replica shirts.
Portugal away shirt - printing
I’m torn on this print. The font is actually pretty good, but the back and front numbers are quite different in that the back is much more intricate in design. The front is a single, white piece of plastic (see close-up above).
As seen here, the back number has a dotted design with a red border and crest.

Portugal away jersey rating
It pains me to write this not so favorable review, but ultimately these shirts are meant to be worn, and if they’re not comfortable that’s a huge problem. It may look great on the stars on the pitch or in your closet, but don’t plan on wearing this one much.
As always, the official Portugal away jersey and the official printing from Sporting ID are available to purchase from iDfootballdesk.

Real Madrid away printing 2015/16 Bale 11

How does the Real Madrid away printing looks like?

A look at how the Real Madrid away printing for the season 2015/16 is positioned on the jersey.
Real Madrid away printing 15/16 Bale 11
Fairly high up on the jersey. Probably around 3-4 cm distance between name and numbers.
The numbers positioned slightly wider than the name meaning that there is a bit of space between them.
Probably Rafa would speak to Bale in English.

Thank you for your request!

Dear Mrs Pekar,
Thank you for your e-mail and your interest in adidas!
 We are sorry for replying to your e-mail so late.
We decided to escalate the case to our Management.
We received the following information:
‘On our Manchester United jerseys we use the replica size letters and numbers which is the PU style.
The numbers have the EPL logo inside.
The applied badges are “Prem Lge Replica Sleeve Badges’
We hope we have answered your questions.
Kind regards,
Your adidas online shop team

Let me try to explain what I mean.
It is possible to order the jersey with a name and number on the back.
For instance a player name like Memphis #7 or a custom name like Adidas #0
this printing is not part of the jersey as default.
so adidas will apply the printing upon request.
my question now is what kind of printing is applied.
is it the PS PRO or is it the PU style ?
the difference being size as well as quality.
I have previously in this thread linked to the page of the producer where these 2 different products are presented.
so please let me know which style of printing you apply ?


07/09/2015 03.01 PM
Dear Mrs Pekar,
We are sorry if our reply has caused some confusion. We have taken a screen shot of the possible badge arrangement.
Please, see the attachment.
 As it comes to the exact printing, unfortunately, we are not provided with that specific piece of information.
We highly recommend contacting our General Enquiries Line for more information: 0800 – 389 3845.
Kind regards,

Thank you for the reply.
I do not understand what do you mean ?
do you apply the PU printing or the PS PRO ?
that is the question.

07/09/2015 01.26 PM
Dear Mrs Pekar,
Thank you for your e-mail and your interest in adidas!
 We are sorry yet at the beginning we could not make out what you meant.
luckily, you sent us the link.
As it comes to our online shop, we have the option to make use of the badge.
However, it will be displayed on every  digit (inside the digits), not separately.
Kind regards,
Your adidas online shop team
04/09/2015 09.28 PM
Thank you for the reply.
however, it does not answer the question.
so let me try to elaborate.
is it this type of printing:
or is it this one ?
or the printing style you use it not even the official one ?

04/09/2015 04.15 PM
Dear Misha,
Thank you for your e-mail and your interest in adidas!
Our sincere apologies for delay in response – we have a big amount of e-mails to respond to which prevents us from getting back to you sooner.
We are very sorry to hear you have encountered so much inconvenience as it comes to the item personalisation.
We can imagine how frustrating it might be.
Also we would like to inform you that currently we have only Premier League font available in our on line store.
Unfortunately we do not have an official information when the Champions League font will be available in our store.
As it comes to the badges, the Champions League and the Premier League are currently available.
If you interested in the purchase, you are welcome to place an order with us.
Kind regards,

I was looking at the Man Utd home shirt.
A few questions relating to the printing.
If I choose the EPL badges will they be replica size or player’s size ?
and the printing will it be PS PRO (players) or PU (replica) ?
If I pick the Starball + Respect logo will the printing be the Man Utd EURO style ? with the club logo rather than the EPL logo in the numbers ?
