Retail Ticket Placement

A MANUFACTURER’S HANGTAG or TAG TICKET with Academy’s retail price is required on all tops. JOKER TAGS (MATCHBOOKS), with size indicated between the score locations, are required on all shorts and pants. Academy’s retail price should either be integrated into matchbook or adhered to matchbook with an adhesive label.

When a vendor attaches a MANUFACTURER’S hangtag, Academy requires that an “adhesive” ticket be used instead of a “tag” ticket. The adhesive ticket must be adhered to the manufacturer’s hangtag according to the guidelines outlined in the UCC’s UPC Marking Guidelines for General Merchandise & Apparel.
