Mount Olympus Awards, LLC is 100% American owned and operated. In addition, when we started our company, we made a conscience decision to support American made products manufactured or sold by American based companies, preferably in American domiciled factories. This wasn’t always easy and even today, it’s not always possible. This program, however, has wildly exceeded our expectations. To date, every one of the varsity jacket awards sold through our site, such as chenille letters, embroidered chenille patches, chenille mascots and emblems, and chenille name patches, have been made by factories located in the USA by American workers unless the customer specifically requested imported products.
Why do we do this when it would be easier to source our products from overseas like most of our competition? Simple. We believe that we were blessed to be born into the greatest market-based economy in the world. Through hard work, and from humble beginnings, it has rewarded us richly for pursuing our dream, turning a small start-up into one of the nation’s most successful niche sporting goods companies. As a result, we want to show our appreciation and keep our money here at home. That’s how we want to do business and live our lives. Given our economies of scale, we are often able to achieve better prices for you, our customer, despite having the products made domestically. Call it a perk of being one of the biggest (and we certainly believe, the best) letterman jacket award companies out there.
We take this commitment seriously. Even when it isn't possible to source from within the United States, we still strive to keep as much of your order at home as we reasonably can. For example, during the Great Recession of 2008-2009 and the aftermath when every major American manufacturer of varsity jacket garments closed their doors or shipped their factories overseas, we changed our fulfillment process. For customers buying varsity jacket award patches, letters, numbers, and other products Made in the USA, we had the imported jackets shipped, at our expense, to the American production facility where American workers sewed them on the imported garment. That way, the wages went to someone who may be your friend or neighbor, rather than a stranger on the other side of the planet.
Some of our customers think this is a bit old-fashioned; quaint even. We respect that not everyone shares our conviction. At the end of the day, our job is to make you happy by providing the highest quality varsity jackets and letterman jacket awards at a competitive price. If you are ordering more than a few dozen of a product and want the additional price breaks that come from having the manufacturing process outsourced, let us know and because we can prepare a custom quote for you, taking advantage of the deep relationships with production facilities on three different continents we've established over the past decade.
We are always looking to expand our Made in the USA program. If you represent a letterman jacket, letterman jacket award, or letterman jacket affinity business that makes its products within one of the fifty United States, and want to explore becoming a supplier for Mount Olympus Awards, feel free to contact us.
