Saskatoon Blades Hold Jersey Design Contest

Written By:  •  Tuesday, October 23, 2012

Get out yer crayons, it’s a good old fashioned jersey design contest!

The Saskatoon Blades of the Western Hockey League are seeking input from the fans for a special one-game jersey to be worn this season on February 2, 2013.

Their rules are simple and actually make a lot of sense… the name must remain the Saskatoon Blades and, most importantly, no crazy colour schemes are allowed.  As long as you stick to using any of the existing Blades colours of blue, silver, white, and gold you’re good to go.  You can make your own logo or use one of the current Blades logos on the jersey.

Top three designs will win prizes, first place gets the ultimate even-better-than-cash prize – a personalized, autographed version of the jersey they created as well as some tickets.  Second and third place get a combination of tickets and t-shirts or hoodies.

The team is asking you to use one of their five provided jersey template PDFs for the designs, they are available for download from the team website, links to the PDF below:

Jersey Template 1

Jersey Template 2

Jersey Template 3

Jersey Template 4

Jersey Template 5

Entries must be received by November 16th and can be emailed to michaels@saskatoonblades.com.

Saskatoon has been a member of the WHL since the league’s inaugural season back in 1966 and numerous NHL stars have played for the Blades during their junior hockey years including Hall of Famer Bernie Federko, Leafs legend Wendel Clark, and former Blackhawks captain Keith Magnusson… so here’s your chance to design a jersey that could be worn by a future NHL superstar.

Details are also available on the Official Saskatoon Blades website.

    What a cool contest. Living in Holland (Europe, not Michigan) is a long way from Saskatoon, so I will not enter the competition. Is the logo a skate or a harpoon, by the way? Must be a skate. Not a very good logo to work with…

    anyone else finding an issue with the templates? I had to recreate their template (the first one) and I don’t think I will have time and patience to remake the other 4. Anyone have any suggestions?

      Templates are bloody awful, they are poorly done and leave no room for creativity. Don’t see much that can be done though, that is what they want, so I guess that is what they are going to get. Sucks. I liked the Sarnia contest [last year??] a lot better.

    I took the 3rd one and remade it into a vector image. It’s a lot more simple, but made it easy to create my design. Hopefully they take it!
