The Next Steps
Step 1 – Contact Us
We’re ready to get your custom apparel project off the ground. We will answer all your questions and advise you on the best products for your specific order. Complete our Getting Started Form and a sales representative we’ll contact you. Be sure to visit our Products page for more information on our custom apparel lines or our FAQs section.
Step 2 – Art and Design – Leave it to Professionals
This phase is truly unique to S1 and what sets us apart from the competition. We understand the importance of your team, brand and sponsor requirements. After we have received your information, we will be in contact to schedule a brief art and design consultation.
Your design project will be managed by one of the world’s leading cycling apparel designers, StageOne Founder and Creative Director Joe Yule (Cannondale-Garmin, SpiderTech and many more). Joe will oversee all aspects of your project with our experienced design team. With your basic design ideas and vector format sponsor logos in hand, design concepts including 3-D renderings will be presented for review, feedback and approval. If you have an existing design, no problem! We can easily and quickly apply them to our templates for your review.
Step 3 – Design Approval and Samples
Once your design has been approved it’s time to discuss the details. We will assist you on finalizing your product selection and provide final price information (if not completed during Step 2). We can also arrange a S1 Fit Kit for your team, a fit kit can be requested here.
Unique to S1, in this phase we will also manufacture a full size sample kit of your design for your final review, approval and riding – at no charge! This value-added benefit allows you to see what your final production design will look like and show it off on your next ride.
Step 4 – Custom Team Store – We Make it Simple
Once we have completed the prior steps, we’re on the home stretch. We will create a password protected custom team store. Your team members can then easily visit the store and complete their purchase securely and without hassle. We offer personalized individual shipping options at no additional charge or the complete order can be shipped to one location.
Step 5 – Order Completion and Manufacturing
Once the team store has closed and all orders have been received and verified for accuracy, the quantities and articles are scheduled for production in our manufacturing facilities located in the Netherlands. Standard production lead-times are 8-10 weeks, dependent upon the size of order and season. A delivery window will be confirmed shortly after order submission, typically within 2-3 business days. A sales representative will then keep you informed and updated on the progress of your order.
Step 6 – Delivery to Your Door
Once production is completed your order is processed and shipped from our Southern California warehouse to your door via a fully traceable shipping method.
Step 7 – Enjoy The Ride!
There are few things better than unbagging and pulling on a professionally designed and manufactured new kit for the first time! Enjoy the ride and we look forward to hearing about it. Don’t be shy, please share a pic or comment with us on social media!
