Shipping/Status Questions

What is the difference between Classic and the New RBK?

The NHL introduced new jerseys for the 2007-2008 season for all NHL teams. These jerseys are now called the RBK Premier (replica) and RBK EDGE Authentic.

Reebook/CCM have now discontinued and stopped manufacturing all of the Away and Third jerseys for all NHL teams used before and up to the 2006-2007 season. The Away and Third jerseys will now become very hard jerseys to find and get. These are now referred to as the "CLASSIC" jerseys. Reebok/CCM will be and are still manufacturing the Home (Dark) jerseys from the 2006-2007 season these jerseys are considered the "third/alternate" jersey for the 2007-2008 season and on and are called the CLASSIC jersey.



What is the difference between your customization and other shops?
We are still offering full pro customization on all our replica and authentic jerseys. What this means is that we are using full layers of tackle twill material and stitching everything directly onto the jersey. If the team has a 2 or even a 3 color number/letter then we use 1,2 or 3 layers of tackle twill material professionally stitched onto of each layer. We then take these numbers and letters and stitch it directly onto the garment. None of our customization is heat pressed!

Most fan/stadium shops and online retailers are taking a cheap approach to customization. What they are doing is using a Screen Printed numbers and letters. Basically this means that it is 1 layer of material that is dyed different colors to give the look of multiple layers of tackle twill. These numbers/letters have also a beveled printing of "fake" stitching to give you the impression that the layers of twill are stitched on when in fact its just a print out. On top of this these screen printed letters and numbers are being heat pressed onto the jersey!

With our On-Site 15,000 square foot factory we are able to offer one of the most cost effective, professional and quickest turn around times in the industry! We are very confident in the quality of work and craftsmanship in our jersey customization as we have been in the business for over 20 years!

*Our Professionally zig-zag stitched full layered tackle twill customization

*Competition cheap screen printed numbers, heat pressed onto jersey.



How long does a customized jersey take to arrive?

We have a 15,000 square foot on-site factory that gives us an advantage over our competitors with quick turn around times. However it still does take some time, normally 10 Business days or less for customization plus shipping times. Many retailers and online shops outsource this customization, which can take 4-10 weeks! plus shipping times.

Since our customization orders take roughly 10 business days to complete the item still needs to be shipped. Shipping times are estimated 3-5 business days to anywhere in Canada and the continental United States.

We offer customization RUSH ORDER Services and Express Delivery.

*Please note: That during the holiday season orders can be delayed by a few business days due to high volume of orders. This may result in customization wait times of 15 business days however our competitors who outsource experience 10-18 week wait times for customized orders.


What if I want a customized jersey quicker? (Can't wait 10 Business days)

   Sometimes you just need a jersey quicker due to a tight deadline because of a game or a gift. We understand that sometimes you need it urgently this is why we offer a rush order service. Our regular customization service takes roughly 10 business days and sometimes more during the holiday season because of the high volume of orders. This rush order service costs $49 and what this gets you is your jersey completely customized within 48 hours (Business days) and ready to ship. Shipping times are still standard 3-5 business days for orders in Canada and the United States. If you still need this even quicker we offer overnight delivery.

Order/Payment Questions

What is the total price of my order including shipping and taxes?

You can calculate your order total very easily. United States residents do not pay any taxes on their orders. However may be subject to duty/brokerage charges. The total cost is calculated by Order price + Shipping.

*Example United States Residents:

Jersey costs for this order is $168. Shipping costs to the Continental United States is $18. Your total order for US residents is:
$168 + $18  TOTAL: $186

*Example Canadian Residents:

Jersey cost for this order is $168. Shipping costs to anywhere in Canada is $15. Sales taxes apply to Canadian residents. For example if you live in Ontario then your sales tax is 14%. Sales tax is calculated on item cost + shipping then taxes. This total amount for an Ontario resident for this order would be:
$168 + $15 = $183 + 14%. TOTAL: $

Can I get combined shipping if I purchase 2 or more items?

  We do offer combined shipping on orders of 2 or more items only. This is how Combined shipping is calculated:

1st Item is Full price shipping - $18 (United States) or $15 (Canada)
Each additional item is only - $2

(If you live in the United States and purchase 3 jerseys)

1st Item full price:
2nd Item:
3rd Item:

Total Shipping costs for these 3 items is $18+2+2 = TOTAL: $22

Can I pay in USD or CDN dollars?

   All our ebay auctions are listed in US Dollars. If you are a Canadian customer purchasing through ebay then during the checkout payment with paypal, you will see that paypal has it's own exchange rate and calculates the funds in Canadian dollars for you. Please note we have absolutely no control over the exchange rate paypal uses and is not controlled by us.

Returns & Duty/Taxes Questions

Why do Canadian Customers Pay Taxes?

   Since we are a registered business within Canada. We need to charge sales taxes for any item that is being delivered within Canada. Please note that taxes are charged by the "SHIP TO" address and not the "BILL TO" address.

If a customer from the United States purchases an item and wants it delivered to a Canadian address then taxes must be charged according to that province. The reason for this is that the item is staying and being sold within the country therefore sales taxes must still be charged.

Why is "Courier" giving me a COD Charge?

   In some cases you may be asked to pay a C.O.D (Cash on delivery)  extra charge You may be wondering "if I paid for shipping already what is this extra charge?" This charge is normally referred to as import-duty, tax collection or brokerage fee that the courier has been asked to collect by the US Government. We have absolutely no control over this. And this must be paid on delivery of the package in order to receive it. Refusing the package will get it returned back to sender in which this charge may be sent to us (Silver Crystal Sports) that we will not cover, and this cost will be added to your account.

  • You can either get us to send the package again in which you will have to pay again for shipping plus (+) any duty, taxes, brokerage fees charged to us by refusal of the package.

  • If you decide to get a refund for this order and do not wish for us to ship it again then we will be refunding you the amount of your order minus (-) the shipping charges and minus (-) any extra fee's.

*Please Note: That there is no refund or exchange on customized/personalized jerseys. If a package is returned back to us we will contact you to let you know that we need to send the jersey again and you will need to pay for shipping costs. The item will sit in our warehouse until shipping costs are paid for again and we will ship the order out again.

Why did someone contact me from US Government asking for information?

   There have been some cases where our customers are being contacted by someone from Customs (US Government). We do not agree with what they are doing and feel it is bad practice as they are asking for personal sensitive information over the phone. This is legit and in fact Customs (US Government) calling requesting for this information as there may be a Duty, Tax, Brokerage fee attached to your order in which they want to make sure that this item gets paid. Refusal of this information will result in the package being held up at the border and returned to sender.

If you want more information regarding this please contact the following:

My order was returned back to sender?

   If you checked tracking and you notice the tracking details state "returned to sender" or you have been alerted by us that your order has been returned:

- There could have been an error with the shipping details such as an incomplete address and the courier could not make the deliver attempt

- The courier tried to make 3 delivery attempts and nobody was home to accept the package and/or the courier was never contacted by you with an alternative address. Once the courier makes a delivery attempt a "notice of delivery" sticky note is left at the door. Please contact the courier immediately to arrange a better shipping time that works around your schedule.

- The item was refused on delivery. If you refuse the item upon delivery then it will be returned back to us. If the item has a C.O.D charge please click here for more info.

If they cannot get a hold of you they will eventually return the package back to us. Please make sure that all your shipping details are up to date, it is always recommended to include a contact phone # on your order details.

Why am I being charged Duty Taxes or Brokerage fee's?

   Import-Duty, Taxes and Brokerage fee's may be charged on packages crossing the border to the United States. This is a hit or miss with the US customs and some packages are being stopped and inspected. When a package is stopped and Inspected it is almost guaranteed to get a import-duty and/or tax and/or brokerage fee.

This fee is inevitable, and despite rumors you may have heard of "marking a low value fee" on the outside of the package does not work and is illegal.

For more information on Brokerage fee's please read the UPS site:
