Default Size for vinyl numbers on jerseys?

I am getting ready to cut vinyl numbers for jerseys... 8" numbers. When I have two digit numbers with the varsity font they are 10" in width. Do I simply make the width smaller having the numbers elongated a bit or is there another trick to it. Is there a standard width for two digit numbers? Also how far from the neckline do I align the top of the numbers. Thanks.
Jon

Hey Jon, I use a lot of 8" numbers, width depends on whether you're doing youth or adult shirts.
Adults I keep the width around 11 - 11.5", youth varies so much on the size you almost have to check each size for what it will accept. The larger youth tees I do around 9-10" wide, X small and Small I cut the size down to 6" Height.

Good rule of thumb is 4 fingers down from the collar (obviously depends on the size of your hand) which works out to 3 or 4". Youth I keep a little closer unless I'm adding sponsors.

I think you misunderstood me.... I cut the numbers 8" tall but wanted to know how far from the neckline to go. I ended up pressing them 5.25 inches down on large sizes and slightly more for larger sizes and they turned out good. Thanks for everyones help.

Ok sorry Jon for the mix up. I would have suggested 5.5 -6 inches fro the neck line. Good luck. ...... JB

You mentioned varsity font, is that the font with the outline or without one. I have a varsity vx font on my computer (no outline) and my computer crashed and had to be wiped out. Since then, I cannot find that same font.

Try collegiate font. I also use Stahl's varsity font.

If you do a lot of numbers, Stahls also sells them in precut packs of ten. They don't match up with the numbers in Stahl's Varsity font though, so if it's just for a couple of jerseys may not be worth it.

use athletic font, kern the numbers to be .25" apart. a 10" high 99 might be 12" wide but that is ok.

8 to 12 inches high for adult (basketball to football) and 6 inch for little kids.

rather than stretch the numbers you can contour them then stretch and it wont look as noticeable on the elongation.
