Custom Logo FAQs
Q: What types of Custom Logo or Wordmark are available?
A: Custom logos are available in sublimated twill patches on Cut & Sew garments and direct sublimation on Digital garments. The only exception to this are home plate logos, which are always sublimated twill patches. Custom wordmarks are available for direct sublimation on Digital garments.
Q: What size are the Custom Logos?
A: Logos placed on uniforms will have maximum sizes depending on their location. Please reference the Custom Logo Location guide for maximum logo size by sport and location. Logos under 3x3 inches in size are restricted to four housing shapes: Diamond, Oval, Circle, and Shield.
Q: What file formats are recommended for Custom Logo creation?
A: Nike requires that logos and wordmarks be submitted via e-mail in vector art format and saved as .ai or .eps files. Workmarks with live fonts should be converted to outlines. In addition, fill areas should be designed with closed paths and must not contain gradients. Stroke widths should be no less than 1 pt. No other electronic formats will be accepted.
Q: How long does the Custom Logo process take?
A: It is important to know that a custom logo or wordmark request should be initiated at least 4 weeks in advance of the desired order window deadline. If the request is received a week in advance of the order deadline, it is very likely that the approval process will not be completed in time, thereby pushing the order into the next delivery window. Please allow plenty of advance time for orders that include custom logos or wordmarks.
Q: Are there any logo size restrictions?
A: Logos under 3x3 inches in size are restricted to four housing shapes: Diamond, Oval, Circle, and Shield.
Q: Are there any color restrictions?
A: Logos under 3x3 inches in size are limited to three colors. Logos larger than 3x3 inches in size are limited to five colors.
Q: What colors can be used on Custom Logos?
A: The standard Nike Team Sports color pallette is available for logos and wordmarks.
Q: How much do Custom Logos cost?
A: There is a $60 one-time artwork fee for each design. There is a $30 fee to recolor, resize, or reflect existing artwork. Sublimated Twill Patches are $10 per location, with the exception of Home Plate placements, which are $7.50 per patch. Logo placements on Digital garments will be charged a $5 placement fee per location. Note: if vector artwork files are presented in the correct Team colors, size and housing shape, the fee to re-color and re-size a logo can be waived.
