By Ruggers. For Ruggers. For over 30 years we have specialized in outfitting teams worldwide with cutting edge, performance gear. Now we bring our experience and commitment to Team Stores, specifically geared for Rugby. We have a warehouse with thousands of items in stock. This allows us to customize your orders with no preorder periods.
Where is my team store?
In August 2017, we moved our Rugby Team Store section to the web address: rugbyteamstore.com. This is now the home of all Ruggers Team Stores & runs in the same affordable and convenient way it always has. Housing the Team Stores in a separate site just allows us to serve our customers better & build opportunities for growth.
How do I open a team store?
If you are interested in opening a team store - please contact us. We will need to know your team colors, your embroidery file & also a .jpg or .png copy of your logo. If your embroidery tape is not already on file, we can set one up for you.
Do you require a contract?
No - we do not require a contract. From our point of view, the Team Store option allows customers to try out our services and gear. We aren't fans of putting unnecessary and unenforceable conditions on teams.
Do you require preorder periods?
No. We do not require preorder periods. We have a warehouse stocking thousands of items ready for one-at-a-time customization. As long as you are customizing something that we have in stock, or is part of our drop-ship model, then no preorder is required. This covers probably 99% of team store contents.
Now and then, teams choose to use their store to 'host' a preorder for an item that is custom made and requires a minimum number of orders. Custom barrel bags are one common example. In this case, we allow customers to place orders for a certain time frame, then order all of the custom items together at the end of the preorder periods.
Is there a minimum order?
There is no minimum order amount required to create a store. Regardless of how many orders are placed they will be processed, decorated and shipped. However, in cases where the team uses the online store to host a preorder for a custom item, a minimum number of orders must be received. The required minimum varies depending on the item, but usually 15 pieces are enough to start a custom order.
How long until I get my gear?
Usually, it takes 1-2 weeks to customize and ship the team store gear. Items are customized one at a time as they are ordered. If we have the item in stock, turnaround could be under a week. If we need to obtain an item we don't regularly stock in the store, then the turnaround will be closer to 2 weeks.
Can I use the store as a fundraiser?
Yes. Once the total sales in the Team Store reach $1,000+, your team has a choice: 10% back via check, or 15% store credit with Ruggers Rugby Supply. We typically issue checks quarterly once the rebate amount is at least $75.
Can I personalize the gear at the time of my order?
Of course! For many items, customers can personalize items with name and/or number before adding it to the shopping cart. There is an additional cost for personalization. Number is $3. Name is $8. Name and number $11 for both.
How many items can I sell in a team store?
There is no limit to the number of items you can host in a team store. However, our best selling stores offer between 6-10 items.
Can you help me design a logo?
Of course! Our graphic design team can create a custom logo for you for FREE. There's no charge for creating or editing logos
