World champions: 12- to 14-year-old mixed team with their world championship medals

Rope skipping in Australia may not be the most high profile sport but it’s certainly big enough internationally to conduct world championship competition events.

Skipping Australia’s team uniform manager, Nicole, contacted our Teamwear Manager, Sam, in early July looking for help after their previous supplier couldn’t make the deadline to make their tracksuit custom uniforms for the upcoming championship titles in the United States.

How we make and deliver custom sports clothing fast

After thoroughly checking production availability, we made the commitment to solve their problem and make their custom sports uniforms in time for them to head to the world championships.

Our design team created custom sublimated designs and concept visuals to the requirements of Skipping Australia and Nicole was provided with those, size specs and samples of their custom team uniforms to finalise the orders in time and meet the deadlines.

The time to make and deliver their custom tracksuits was short.  Sign off for the order came through from Nicole on 4 July. With the titles being held in Florida on 31 July, and the 50-strong team leaving Australia on the 25th, following discussions with Nicole, we agreed to air express their new custom team clothing direct to the venue in Florida.

This meant shipping by 20 July. That date was duly met and the orders air freighted as promised.

What used to be a marathon guessing game with international freight is now just as simple as local deliveries in Australia. Most carriers provide accurate tracking systems so you know where your consignment is at any time.

We kept an eye on the delivery schedules and in contact with Nicole. As she and the team flew across the globe, their custom uniforms were delivered and waiting when the Skipping Australia team arrived for competition.

Getting a great result

The new outfits must have worked, with a number of teams and individuals successful in their categories.

It’s always satisfying when planned outcomes work successfully – no more so when the success means our customers become world champions.

We congratulate the Skipping Australia team for their success at the Skipping World Championships and feel proud that we played a part in that success.
