At Meca Sportswear, it is our goal to exceed service and fulfillment of our letter jackets.
We can usually provide as an estimated scheduled ship date of your students letter jacket.
Many factors can affect delivery.
- What month your students jacket was ordered
- Busy seasons are October, November, December, and March, April, and May, June
- Holiday and school break schedules
- Christmas, Spring Break, and summer break can add delivery time to your based on when the school can receive them
- Student purchased jackets vs School purchased jackets
- Student Purchase jackets can normally expect 6 to 8 week delivery, the main hold up can be when they are ordered as a group and our office is working with parents to pay for their jackets.
- School Purchase jackets - Even though you have invested in the personalized items on your jacket, sometimes we must wait on the school to provide payment details on your students jacket
- COVID Supply chain issues - Jackets are taking much longer than our typical 6 to 8 weeks. The reason is broad; our jackets are made in the United States where we had schools, across the country, place the majority of their order in late 2021. Due to the covid protocols labor shortages, and an influx of orders, delivery is backed up several months. We do expect production times to normalize in fall of 2022.
- Special cases
- If you have need a jacket by a certain date, please let us a know at the time the order is taken. We then have the opportunity to exceed your expectations and make a deadline. Sometimes it is not possible, but because we are local and have been selling a Meca Sportswear jacket for over the 35 years, we like to know if there is a deadline we can meet.
- Other factors out of our control
- Busy season - Some times there will be offices across the USA the submit orders within days of each other. We always request priority.
- Weather - Our factory is in Tomah, Wisconsin. If you can imagine they have some interesting weather up there. If roads are shut down, the plant shuts down, and our shipping partners also delay. But because we are based in the USA, we have some of the best delivery in the industry.
