Jersey Lettering Question PS

When using photoshop and you put a team name across its jersey, what degree do you set the arc at? Also what size font do you think is appropriate?

I set mine at 25-35 degree arc. For me, the font size is determined by the font, but ultimately I like to have it span armpit to armpit. I will even adjust the spacing between letters and even the width and/or height of the letters.

That's about what I do as well. I start at 22 and don't generally exceed 33. I often stretch, squish or distort the text in a myriad of other ways as well.

These are my parameters too, though most often I go with arc 20. Again, it is font and context specific. Most often I find myself adjusting character spacing of just a few letters or rasterizing the font and moving different elements around so as to avoid the jersey seam/opening in the middle of the chest. Some letters tend to get hidden behind it. Symmetry is always a concern.
