How do you remove stitched letters from a jersey?

Removing lettering is done with a seam-ripper from the front (lettering side) of the jersey. You must work slowly and carefully. The seam ripper is very happy to rip holes in your shirt if you aren’t careful. After removing thread, if the lettering is still stuck down, it is best not to force it off.
