I don't keep any of the embroidered items in stock (except caps which I keep a few of), as there are just too many combinations of item, colour and size. I need to order a minimum of six items at a time, so depending on how many people are ordering there may be a wait of a few weeks.
There are a few options that I have been considering to rationalise things:
- reduce the number of items/colours/sizes on offer, but hold stock
- have a regular (say quarterly) ordering schedule
- possibly switch to a supplier that will do single items, albeit at a higher cost
I've got t-shirts though, and I'm working on a few new items
