Why Buy School Locker Room Logo Rugs

Almost nothing else can beef up school pride more than school locker room logo rugs! Every school should have one or more. Let’s explore why further.

You’ll Get a Big Bang From Your Limited Athletic Budget with School Locker Room Logo Rugs

Often starting in mid to late summer, athletic directors meet with their staff to go over the upcoming school year’s budget. With many schools grappling with dwindling athletic budgets, the decisions on what to buy, what not to buy, and how much to buy can be tough. When coaches and their staff have to tighten their strings, they often look at what will give them the biggest bang for their buck beyond what is absolutely essential. This is where our school locker room logo rugs really shine!

Our locker room custom logo rugs are very reasonably priced, especially for the quality we produce and how long they last! The vibrant colors and high resolution of the custom rugs we make will bestow instant pride and confidence in the team when they see their logo and mascot so emboldened. It will put them in a “we can win” mode and they’ll play better than ever!

As a team gathers around the coach before a big game, a striking locker room logo rug goes a long way toward fostering team spirit…. it turns the locker room into a clubhouse for winners! When such a winning atmosphere is created, it tells every athlete that they are part of something really big and really important. It drives everyone to excel and work as one cohesive unit. Yes, it’s a psychological thing… but we won’t go into all that.

Are You a Member of a School Booster Club Looking For a Special Way To Support the Team?

You have probably noticed that when a community supports their athletic teams, they play much better. Yes, raw athletic ability and having a persistently good work ethic are very important…. but equally important, perhaps even more important, is what’s between an athlete’s ears… and what the overall team morale is like! This is why non-profit booster clubs supporting the team and cheering them on are so critical to a team’s success.

Luckily, fundraising for school locker room logo rugs is a very achievable goal that can have a HUGE IMPACT! Furthermore, the impression it gives the team when they see these logo rugs for the first time can move a big bulky defensive line football player to tears (but they’ll never admit it!). Best of all, this is a booster club donation that keeps on giving day after day, week after week, month after month, and year after year — every time the athletes feel that overwhelming spirit in the locker room, it will give again!

One of the biggest advantages of getting your locker room logo rug from Rug Rats is we truly enjoy the process of making and customizing your rug! We love it when the creative juices flow and our clients really get into turning their logo rug into a one-of-a-kind original! And… nothing perks up school spirit more than getting the students in on the design of something that is so prominently displayed at their own school!

Why not turn it into a contest too! Have the male athletes design a locker room rug for the boys’ locker room and the female athletes design one for the girls’ locker room. Then, have the teachers or the principal judge them and give the winner a special prize, like a write-up in the local paper with a picture of the winners enjoying a free pizza party! That would be one for the yearbook for sure!

Don’t Forget About the Smaller Teams

While football, basketball, baseball, and track and field take center stage at most schools in the United States, school locker room logo rugs are an economical high-impact way to beef up school pride in the smaller athletic teams too. Does your school have a tennis team, sailing club, rowing team, hockey team, volleyball team, scuba diving club, swim team, or another team that doesn’t usually get as big a budget? Give them a rug personalized to that particular team.

Even a small changing room off the tennis courts can be easily fitted with logo rugs. You can also add these rugs to an area on a temporary basis when different teams are playing throughout the school year. Why not surprise these smaller teams with a symbol of your appreciation and support at the beginning of their season. Likewise, the smaller teams can easily fundraise to get their own logo rug as well.

Now Let’s Talk Design

Our school locker room logo rugs are exceptional in that we print them at about ten times the resolution of our competitors. This means they are going to be the envy of every visiting team! It also means that every intricate detail of your logo and other artwork (you can email us a file) will show up exquisitely!

We can also create custom shapes for you. For example, we did a logo rug for Hampden Sydney College with one of the big paws of their mascot, a tiger, sticking out just a little from the edge of the otherwise rectangular-shaped rug. The effect looked like the tiger was jumping out of the carpet! We can also cut a rug into an irregular shape to fit around lockers or other objects in the locker room.


Please note too that you can specify precisely the color you want, or even send us a sample for us to match. Our printing is true to color so your school colors will be precisely represented and strikingly presented. You can also decide on a special border or other design elements to add to your locker room rug other than your logo. Please take a look through our online galleries for ideas or call us and we can make suggestions to get you started.

Locker room logo rugs serve another purpose besides being visually stunning…. they also help prevent accidents. With sweat dripping and athletes coming in from the shower, a locker room floor can get quite slippery. These rugs are made to immediately absorb this wetness and thus prevent slip and fall accidents. It’s important to protect our young athletes who are giving so much effort to support their teams and their schools!

 Shoot Us an Email!

We’d love to hear from you. Send us a picture of your school logo and school mascot and let us know what kind of school locker room logo rug(s) you’d like to create. Don’t worry if you think your idea may be a bit off the beaten path… in fact, we encourage that!
