As rugby players, we would all have seen a rugby tour team with a wacky, ‘out there’ kit.
We will have also laughed it off saying we’d never wear something like that, but why not?
With sublimation print becoming the modern printing method of choice for custom rugby kit, why would you not go all out when designing your tour kit?
Let us paint you a picture. Instead of a cotton ‘stock kit’ with basic embroidery (and maybe a basic screen print on the back with the words Brighton 2001 on the back), you could have the city and beachfront in an all-over print as as the base background of your jerseys.
With sublimation printing, the options are limitless. A rugby tour is supposed to be fun; why compete in stock items with no real meaning or memento value when you could create a product that people will remember for years to come. If people laugh, great! That’s the point; your rugby tour is all about having a bit of fun.
As custom kit specialists, we enjoy working with rugby teams to create tour kit. Whether your looking for a tour kit for your 1st XV, junior teams or the whole club, our internal creative team will work with you to turn your ideas in to reality.
We have a selection of rugby players here at Scimitar, all of which have taken part in rugby tours all over the world; from the glamorous Cayman Islands to the glamorous Blackpool.
We all have tons of old stock kit with peeling names and letters on the back which will either end up thrown away or hidden in a bin bag and placed in the loft. With sublimation kit, the ink is infused directly with the fabric, ensuring a fade-free print that won’t peel or crack over time. Once the tour is over, there are plenty of ways you can get your money’s worth. You could continue wearing it (at training or social meetings, for example) or if your tour is one that’s going to be remembered for a long time, get it framed and get it placed on the wall.
