How to Design Custom Baseball Jerseys

B2B November 18, 2022

If you are planning to have a baseball team, you may want to know how to design custom baseball jerseys for each member. Some options to consider include adding team logos or numbers to the sleeves, and embroidery. The jerseys can also have the names and numbers of the players written on the back.

Sublimation printing on baseball jerseys

Sublimation printing on baseball jerseys allows you to print a customized logo or design on a baseball uniform. You can choose from a variety of colors and designs to make your team stand out. These jerseys are available in men’s, women’s, and youth sizes. They can also be worn by company representatives at sporting events.

There are several steps involved in the process of sublimating a baseball jersey. First, you must prepare the machine and load the sublimation dyes into the printer. Next, you must prepare the transfer paper and material. Once you load the printer with these materials, you can begin the printing process.

The quality of the sublimation ink is critical for high-quality color reproduction. To achieve this, you need a specialized sublimation ink that dries faster and has a high color gamut. You also need to find an ink that has a high transfer rate and permeability. The type of substrate will also affect the quality of the thermal transfer.

The sublimation process uses high temperatures and pressure to transfer designs to the fabric. This process makes the design permanent and doesn’t peel or crack over time. It allows for complete customization. Unlike screen-printed jerseys, which often peel off or crack over time, a sublimation print will remain vibrant for many seasons.

Sublimation printing on baseball jerseys offers a wide range of customizable choices. Unlike other methods of printing, the ink won’t peel or crack and the design will not fade. It also resists damage and can withstand the rigours of washing machines and the post.

Sublimation printing on baseball jerseys is one of the most popular ways to create high-quality custom uniforms. It’s an ideal solution for high-volume production of sportswear. The high temperature of the sublimation printers enables the transfer of designs to the fabric. As a result, it’s possible to get unique prints that stand out from the crowd.

Sublimation printing works by transferring dyes from a special paper to the fabric. Once the paper is heated, the ink transforms into a gas, which then transfers from the paper to the fabric. Because the ink is applied using heat, the effect will last a long time, and the shirt will not rub off.

Choosing the right style

There are several options available for creating custom baseball jerseys. These can include dye sublimation or screen printing, both of which allow for more than one color on each garment. Sublimation uses dye that is infused directly into the fabric, while screen printing uses ink to create a design on the surface of the jersey. Depending on the style you choose, screen printing can have up to three colors or more. Tackle twill is another style you can choose. Most tackle twill printers only allow for two colors on jerseys.

The classic look of pinstripes makes the uniform look more official and creates a sense of team appreciation. Pinstripes also work well with teams that wear white uniforms because the colors make any stains less noticeable. They are also good options for teams that do not wear full uniforms.

The style of custom baseball jerseys should reflect the team’s personality. The color should match the team’s logo and overall look. Brighter colors make the team easier to identify and can make it easier for players to find their teammates. Bright yellow jerseys can also give a team a psychological edge over its competitors.

Before making a purchase, you should consider the warranty offered. Some companies offer one-year warranty on their products. Some will also offer the option to return or replace a product within that time period. Other warranty policies may be shorter, but make sure to read the warranty and return policy before you make a decision.

The font used for the lettering is also crucial. You will want to make sure that the font you choose complements the design of the jersey. Some people opt to have the name of the school or town printed on the jersey, while others opt to have the team sponsor’s name written on the jersey.

A custom baseball jersey can be made in a variety of styles. While some are plain and simple, others may feature more intricate details. You should make sure to select a reputable uniform designer. Some companies offer online services for custom baseball jerseys and allow you to add the players’ names and logos.

Putting players’ names on the jerseys

Putting players’ names on custom baseball jersey may not be the best idea. Many fans prefer to see the players’ numbers and not their names. This also reinforces the notion that no one player is bigger than the team. In addition, players tend to cooperate more when their names are not on the jerseys.

It’s not always easy to fit a player’s name and a team name on a baseball jersey. The space available limits how many letters and numbers can fit. For example, it would look silly if Adrian Gonzalez had an accent over his “a”. Also, if a player’s last name is very long, it will be difficult to fit. This practice is known as the “Saltalamacchia Style.”

There are a few rules to remember when placing names on custom baseball jerseys. First, it’s important to consider the name of the team. Some teams have a team nickname or mascot. Another option is to place the team sponsor’s name on the jersey. If a team has a generous sponsor, this might be a good idea. In any case, you’ll need to choose the right font to ensure that everyone’s names look the same.

Putting players’ names on custom baseball jersey designs can give your team a new look. Consider using vinyl to put the players’ names on the jerseys. Remember to use a vintage font for the name to add a vintage vibe to the uniform. This will enhance the overall look and feel of your team.

Another option for putting player names on custom baseball jerseys is to add a team logo to the sleeve. This is especially useful if the player’s name isn’t on the back of the jersey. Adding this information to the jersey will make them feel proud of their jerseys.

Work Injury Compensation Act Singapore [WICA]: The HR’s Guide

B2B November 16, 2022

Work Injury Compensation Act (WICA): The HR’s Guide

Work Injury Compensation Act

With the rising workplace fatalities throughout the year, HR leaders play a vital role in ensuring good safety and health practices in the workplace. This involves maintaining regulatory compliance that falls under the Workplace Safety and Health (WSH) mandatory guidelines.

One of the most important WSH obligations HR needs to prioritise is the Workplace Injury Compensation Act (WICA) that protects both employees and employers when workplace incidents happen. Here’s everything you need to know about the Work Injury Compensation Act.

What is the Work Injury Compensation Act

The Work Injury Compensation Act (WICA) establishes a streamlined and simplified system that allows employees to make claims for work-related injuries or diseases without having to engage a lawyer and commence formal civil proceedings. [1]

However, employers remain liable for claims under both WICA and common law from all employees.

In accordance with WICA, all employers are required to acquire and maintain work injury compensation insurance to fulfil the responsibilities for compensation that may arise under the legislation.

💡Note: All insurers must be approved by the Commissioner of Labour before they can offer WICA-compliant policies.

The Work Injury Compensation Act (WICA) covers all local or foreign employees who are under a contract of service or contract of apprenticeship, regardless of salary, age role, or citizenship. [2]

However, there are some exceptions. It doesn’t cover the following:

  • Independent contractors and self-employed individuals
  • Domestic workers
  • Uniformed personnel including members of the Singapore Armed Forces, Singapore Police Force, Singapore Civil Defence Force, Central Narcotics Bureau and Singapore Prison Service

Generally, an employee who suffers any injury from an accident arising out of and in the course of employment is eligible for compensation under the WICA.

With the advent of remote working arrangements, the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) has confirmed that employees will be able to claim compensation for an accident that took place outside the employer’s designated workplace (i.e., the office), as long as it arises out of and in the course of the employment, such as when an employee is working from home or at a client site.

Employees are also eligible to make a claim for accidents that happen outside of Singapore. This further shows that the company’s obligation to sustain a safe working environment doesn’t begin and end in the office.

Find out more here to see which scenarios are covered under WICA.

💡Note: Employees who have been infected with COVID-19 due to work activities or exposure arising out of and in the course of work will be able to claim compensation under the WICA regime. [3]

All eligible employees can make a claim under the Work Injury Compensation Act (WICA) if they have: [4]

  • Been injured by an accident arising out of and in the course of employment.
  • Been injured while on an overseas assignment.
  • Contracted an Occupational Disease.
  • Contracted a disease from exposure to biological or chemical agents at work.
  • They no longer work for the employer or their work pass has been cancelled.
  • The accident happened while they were on an overseas assignment.
  • The accident happened while on a work-from-home or other flexi-work arrangement that they agreed with the employer.

Dependents of an employee who died due to a workplace accident can also make a claim on behalf of the employee. [2]

Employees who are covered by the Work Injury Compensation Act (WICA) can claim for the following types of compensation benefits: [5]

  • Medical leave wages — this is for days an employee was issued with medical leave or light duty, due to a work injury or disease.
  • Medical expenses — this includes the employee’s hospital bills, medication and other charges, due to the work injury.
  • Lump sum compensation — this is for the employee’s permanent incapacity, current incapacity or death.

The amount of compensation to which an employee is entitled under WICA depends on whether the employee suffers incapacity (permanent, current, or temporary) or dies as a result of the accident.

  • Permanent incapacity is based on a doctor’s assessment after the medical condition has stabilised.
  • Current incapacity may be based on the extent of incapacity at the 6-month mark as most injuries stabilise within 6 months from the date of the accident.
  • Temporary incapacity refers to an injured employee being temporarily unable to perform work and earn usual wages after being placed on medical leave.
  • Medical leave wages for working days covered by doctor-granted MC, light duty or hospitalisation leave, up to one year from the date of the accident.
  • Medical expenses related to work accident for medical treatment received within one year from the date of the accident, or up to a maximum of $45,000, whichever is reached first.

The claim process differs depending on the type of case. For fatal accidents, HR managers need to notify MOM as soon as possible and submit an accident report within 10 days from the date of the accident.

For non-fatal accidents, make sure to submit an incident report within 10 days from the date you were first notified of the accident. An employee needs to be hospitalised or given any instance of medical leave or light duty to be considered as a non-fatal accident. [6]

  1. After reporting the accident, the employer must continue to pay medical leave wages and medical expenses. The designated insurer or MOM will send you a medical report form.
  2. Once the medical report form has been paid and sent to the hospital or clinic, the completed report will be sent to the designated insurer or MOM.
  3. Then, you’ll receive the notice of assessment (NOA) or notice of computation (NOC) where the compensation amount will be included.

💡Note: If you’re waiting for payment from the insurance company, you must still pay the employee’s medical leave wages and medical expenses first, and get reimbursed later.

If they have an outstanding claim under the Work Injury Compensation Act (WICA), employers are not allowed to send their employees home against their wishes.

Several changes have been made to the WICA to further build a safe and responsible working environment for all employees and protect them from unfair compensation. [7]

  • From 1 January 2020, the minimum and maximum amounts have been increased in respect of compensation for death and total permanent incapacity (including current incapacity) as well as the maximum limit for medical expenses.
  • The range of compensation for death falls between $76,000 and $225,000. While the compensation for total permanent incapacity ranges between $97,000 and $289,000.
  • The medical expenses are set with a maximum of $45,000, or up to 1 year from the date of the accident, whichever comes first.
  • From 1 April 2020, the salary threshold for non-manual employees requiring work injury compensation insurance will be increased to $2,100, regardless of where they work. It will further increase to $2,600 from 1 Apr 2021.
  • Employers must still acquire insurance for all manual employees, regardless of salary.
  • From 1 September 2020, all employees who have been placed on light duties because of work injuries will be compensated for their lost earnings based on their average monthly earnings.
  • Every employee on outpatient or hospitalization sick leave will continue to be compensated for their lost earnings.
  • From 1 September 2020, employers are required to report all work-related medical leave or light duties to MOM.

Employers are likely to be affected by these changes to WICA even while many of their employees continue to work from home.
