Sublimation in Rugby League

Sublimation rugby league shirts have long been the standard kit choice for professional and amateur clubs.
Now, time for a quick history lesson!
As with many best practices in sport, sublimation shirts for rugby originated in Australia, a long time before rugby union teams started using them. They continue to set the precedent today.
Originally, sublimation rugby shirts (like their cycling jersey counterparts) were manufactured using a sublimation screen print method. This wasn’t particularly ideal for small print runs due to the set up time, and is now redundant having been replaced by digital sublimation print.
All UK rugby league performance shirts are now manufactured using sublimation print. From stalwarts in the First Utility Super League such as Wigan Warriors, Salford Reds and Leeds Rhinos through to amateur clubs like Telford Raiders.

Shorts, too.

Rugby league shorts followed suit after the success of sublimation shirts. Originally manufactured from cut and sew fabric, as soon as the fabric was fully developed they too were sublimation printed. Sublimation rugby shorts are generally manufactured from Poly Twill, which provides durability and has zero stretch, much like the properties of its cotton twill predecessor.
Scimitar has manufactured the full range of custom rugby union and league playing kit for many years. We manufacture for both our own brand as well as a number of other mainstream rugby brands and retail rugby brands.
Another primary benefit of sublimation rugby kit is the strength of the product. Polyester fabrics are incredibly strong and can be manufactured with a percentage of spandex to add a degree of stretch. This makes the rugby shirts hard to grab hold of in competition.
Sublimation rugby shirts and playing shorts can also carry as many logos, designs and number of colours as you want. This is great for adding sponsors and incurs no additional cost, unlike the addition of embroidery or heat transfers.

Sublimation Rugby

Durable

The durability of bespoke polyester rugby playing kits means they don’t need replacing every year. They wash cold and dry quickly, making them both more economical for your rugby club.
Furthermore, the reduced needs to replace the kit make them a more environmentally friendly option in the long run, particularly compared to your old school cotton kit.
In essence, the only way to go when buying a bespoke rugby kit is with sublimation print. Call 01905 425324 or email sales@scimitarsports.com to receive a competitive quote now.
