BTW, here's a closer look at our rubber badge
Close up when you can see the edges it looks a bit 'cheap' but looks pretty good at normal distance I reckon.
Not like an embroidered logo looks anything special if you hold your eye right up to the stitches anyway.

Yeah I'm not sold yet.

It's weird to what makes a premium product.

A Best & Less NRL jersey is all sublimated.

A premium NRL jersey, was stitched with screen printed sponsors. Now it's changing to rubber and gel.

A Best & Less AFL jumper is screen printed logos.

A premium AFL jumper is 100% sublimated.

Interesting to see in 10 years what jerseys and jumpers survive the test of time.

Are they screen printing or heat patches?
Screenprinting seems way to much of a hassle for big batches especially if logos are multiple colours.
Not that I am an expert in the area.

Sublimation def the easiest and cheapest option. Guess if you are doing gel grip dots on player jersey anyway the rubber badges aren't much more effort.

I love sublimated jerseys, but it never matches up to the price, especially with AFL, and they're also too easy to get a fake

It's buy at your own risk.

I've your willing to gamble ~$60 you might get something quite good, or you might get something extremely crap. You may not get anything at all.

Don't have high expectations

And please keep in mind no money is going to the club

Yeah I try to buy from the club but when Dynasty has their own cheap ass pricing you can't resist.

I remember years ago, maybe a decade, it used to say on the tag, and it said 10%.
If you buy directly from the club it is likely more but a lot of that would be towards wages and other costs associated with various sale methods.
It's hard to try and guess as I'm not sure if there would be income that goes to the NRL from each sale as well?
