Sublimated jerseys and wear?

How resistant to wear from carrying a backpack are sublimated jerseys?
Anyone have experience in this regard?

I don't want to buy a jersey with a fancy design on that gets worn off by my pack.

Won't happen. Wear it till it's all holes. You won't wear the patterns off.

That's why they call it sublimated.

Oh jeezus...

Okay, in YOUR case, wearing a backpack for just one ride will wear the pattern off. Completely and irreversibly.
