    ...i will be arriving in san jose on the 6th, and fencing begining on the 7th. i plan on having my name put on them once i arrive on the 6th - that is ok, right?
    also, is there anything i should know (i dont have a specific question...just general lack of knowledge) before having this done?

    thanks!

    That's fine. Go to Marx.

    Marx or one of the other vendors is the best choice provided you and they both have time. But if need be you can use a permanent magic marker on a strip of cloth and do a quick hem job to sew them to your pants. Even I could do it. And then have a decent job done when you have time.

    Or just get a washable marker.

    Also, in case you don't know, it's fine to have your name stenciled on your jacket/lame (depending on if you fence epee or foil/sabre), and not your knickers, and vice-versa. So if you've already got the jacket/lame stenciled you're good to go.

    In the category "is there anything i should know" there is something you may not know: that is to check your equipment into the armoury the night before, while you are dropping off your stenciling. I expect the line is going to be long the morning of.

    No insult intended if you are an old hand and have been through this 10^6 times.

    Crap, I just had the logo stencilled on my pants and it is 3/4 around the leg and more on the back side of the trousers.
