Shipping & Delivery

While we will do everything we can to expedite your production, rush production may not always be available. If you have a firm delivery date, please contact us to confirm your production timeline before placing your order. If we will not be able to meet your deadline for that particular product, our team can help you find alternatives to fit your audience and budget!

Every product on our site has an Estimated Shipping Time Frame listed directly above the Add to Cart button, along with an Estimated Ship Date in the shopping cart before you check out. These dates are based on our average production timeline (also listed on each product), with an allowance of 1-2 working days for us to receive and review your art, and provide you with a virtual proof for your approval. Please note: Any delays in getting your approval on proofs may extend your ship date.

We have multiple shipping methods available for you to ensure your items arrive within the time frame needed. Below are our shipping methods and transit times for shipments anywhere in the United States. Please keep in mind that these time frames could be extended due to weather delays or other issues outside of our control. 

  • Ground Shipping – will arrive within 3-6 working days anywhere in the United States (or sooner) after your order ships.
  • 3 Day Air – will arrive within 3 working days anywhere in the United States after your order ships.
  • 2 Day Air – will arrive within 2 working days anywhere in the United States after your order ships.
  • Next Day Air – will arrive by end of day the working day after your order ships.

Your order may ship from anywhere in the US depending on the product and decoration method chosen, along with the quantity. Because of this, please allow the time frames listed for delivery.

Shipments from Outside of the United States
Please allow at least 10 working days for any shipments outside the United States, along with special considerations for item restrictions and taxes/duties detailed below.

Our preferred carrier for shipments within the United States is UPS, but some shipments may be sent via FedEx, Spee Dee Delivery (within the Midwest), DHL, or other carriers. Large orders may be sent via an LTL freight carrier – we will contact you beforehand to ensure you are able to accept palletized shipments. Pelican Coolers will be sent via a freight carrier which may vary depending on your location; a carrier and Bill of Lading (BOL) will be provided upon shipment.

  • Commercial addresses - Most carriers require a signature release for shipments.
  • Residential addresses - Signature release is based on the discretion of the carrier. If you are shipping to a residential address and require special handling or delivery, a separate invoice for these charges will be sent and must be paid in full before your order is released to production.

At this time, orders placed online at ruggedworkwear.com can only be shipped to US addresses. However, we can accommodate international shipping with most of our products. Please contact us for a quote. In most cases duties and taxes will be due on delivery based on your country and the tariff codes of the product(s) ordered.
