Smack Philosophy: No Pre-Orders

Feb 8, 2018 6:16:51 AM

You know that Smack has lower prices, faster turnaround time, and better customer service than the bigger volleyball uniform vendors. You also know that we have over 20 years of experience designing and producing high-performance volleyball apparel.


But you may not know that at Smack Sportswear, we will never require customers to place pre-orders. Bigger vendors like Nike, Under Armour, and Mizuno request volleyball clubs to preorder what they expect to need 4-6 months ahead of time so that they can plan their inventory. However, most volleyball coaches and club directors don't know what their teams will look like months before the club season begins. This can lead to over-ordering, under-ordering, or at worst, not having the correct sized jerseys to begin your club season.



Here at Smack, we want you to order with confidence. We follow a custom, made-to-order business model and carry a ton of inventory, so you don't have to worry about pre-ordering and estimating jersey sizes. Further, we increase our manufacturing capacity in our facility from October through January to ensure that we can efficiently fill all orders coming in during the busy club volleyball season. 


Once you place your order, we have a quick four-week turnaround on all sublimated jersey orders. Or under special circumstances, like after Mira Costa's Nike jerseys never arrived before season, we can often turnaround faster.


"I highly recommend Smack sportswear," said Susan Underwood of powerhouse Mira Costa High School. "Mira Costa volleyball ordered 2 sets of jerseys from Smack this season, and both have arrived quickly and perfectly. We ordered both jerseys weeks after we input an order for Nike branded Jerseys. The Nike jerseys still haven’t arrived-we were told by the rep that they have no control over Nike’s timing and we'll just have to wait. It’s nice to be working with Smack, a local company, who DOES have control over their own production facility, right here in southern California. Smack has gone above and beyond to take care of Mira Costa Volleyball’s needs and we love working with them."



No pre-orders, fast turnaround. That's the Smack philosophy. Give us a call or shoot us an email to get a quote today!
