As the Purchaser of new uniforms, your position of responsibility mandates that you become as knowledgeable as possible when designing uniforms and selecting your vendor. We’ve provided you with simple, and straight forward steps to help answer any questions you may have in regards to the uniform ordering process. Please consider the following sequence of events and the amount of time you should allot for each. Properly planning the order of your new uniforms ensures that we are able to assist you as seamlessly and efficiently as possible.
STEP 1 – INITIAL DESIGN MEETING
One of our Cheers Etc. Design Representatives will sit down with you to discuss your needs, desires and preferences. This meeting, whether held in person or over the phone, can take some time and should be scheduled when interruptions will be at a minimum.
STEP 2 – PREPARATION OF SKETCHES
After decisions have been made through the initial design meeting, we can then proceed with preparing a computer colored sketch of your new uniforms. This professional sketch will be able to accurately portray the color combinations and design details of your new uniforms. Depending on the time of year, this step may take any where from 1 to 3 weeks to complete.
STEP 3 – APPROVAL OF DESIGN
After you receive these sketches, please feel free to show it to your administration, boosters, whoever will be involved in the funding and/or decision making. Of course nothing is written in stone and if the design is only loved by you, we scrap that one and start again with the new knowledge gained from the first sketch. This step can take another 1 to 3 weeks to complete dependent upon the changes needed.
STEP 4 – PRODUCTION OF YOUR EXACT SAMPLE (IF NECESSARY)
After we have made the necessary changes to the sketch, it is time to proceed with the production of your new uniform sample. This sample will be produced for you at no cost or obligation. It is imperative that you see an actual uniform utilizing your design before you order. The time needed for this step will vary depending on the time of year you make your request as well as the intricacy of the chosen design, but you should allow a minimum of 2 weeks before receiving your sample.
STEP 5 – DETERMINATION OF DESIGN
After receiving your uniform sample, we encourage you to have one of your students try the uniform on for feel, and maybe even have her go out to the to visualize what your entire team may look like under the big lights. A decision should be made within the first week after receiving your sample. We will need to move as quickly as possible to ensure your order is placed with an achievable deadline in mind.
STEP 7 – MEASURING YOUR TEAM
A Cheers team member will walk the Measurer through the measurement process step by step before you are ready to measure your team. We recommend having one person measure the team to keep the measurements consistent. You may also visit the corresponding link to view our step by step video on measuring your team.
