Often, we are asked if we have a particular item in stock. This is a reasonable question that is usually a way of asking if we can ship something right away.
We actually stock very little. We offer a variety of logo options on nearly 100 different products, each of which come in a number of colors and sizes. Instead of trying to stock an inventory of many thousands of items, we view ourselves as manufacturers.
This approach works well since we have access to two large regional warehouses, from which we find about 95% of everything we sell either the same day or the next.
From a practical standpoint, "in stock" to me means we can get it locally, many times we can ship the same day, most of the time the next. Some items are not stocked locally and we can get those within 5 working days; a pessimistic goal.
So to avoid a "technical" answer when asked, I hope this explanation helps to get us to a right decision when ordering.
