Wave One’s successful formula is offering the highest quality products through exceptional service at competitive prices.  It’s a simple formula, but evidently not very easy to execute consistently.  We work very hard each day to ensure that every one of our customers has a superior experience. 

The first element of our successful formula is high quality products.  Wave One sells and decorates the finest quality products from Nike, Under Armour, Adidas, Holloway, Alleson Athletic, Champion and New Balance to name a few.  Our customers seek and appreciate the value in these brands, and understand that the quality of the decoration is of equal importance as well.  This combination of superior quality apparel and state of the art decoration results in the finest quality custom team sports gear available.

   

The second element of the successful Wave One formula is exceptional service.

We understand that busy schedules sometimes don’t allow for calls or contacts during “normal” business hours.   Our comprehensive and mobile friendly website is available 24/7 for product information and email links to request additional information and ask questions.  More and more of our customer contact is exclusively via email and the internet, but many customers also take advantage of our telephone accessibility during the work week.  At Wave One we understand that a happy customer will come back over and over and in addition may refer additional business because of their positive experience.  Wave One makes customers happy.  Wave One will make you happy too.

 

The third element of the successful Wave One formula is competitive pricing.  Our strong relationships with our suppliers, built over 28 years of making our customers happy,  have put us in the position to offer our high-quality products and services and exceptionally fair and competitive prices.  We have learned from our customers that lowest price does not equate to best value.  Our customers know that they get the best value for their dollar at Wave One Sports, and they return season after season for the experience.   We believe that doing what we say we will do, every time, creates value.  We also know that we are not the only game in town, and that we must earn our customer’s trust and loyalty on every order.  And we do.

 If you are a Wave One customer, we thank you.   If you have not yet had the pleasure of working with Wave One Sports, we ask – “Are you Happy?”  Well, are you?  Let Wave One make you happy.

WSC Ice Hockey Uniform Redesign

Turn back the clock to mid-summer 2016.  Wave One Sports was contacted by the director of junior hockey at the Wissahickon Skating Club (WSC) about the possibility of designing and building new Ice Hockey Jerseys. 

Wave One and WSC have a long standing relationship that began in the late 1960’s when our bookkeeper, Muffin Oppenheimer (then Muffin Whiteside) and the entire Whiteside family participated in the junior hockey and junior figure skating programs at WSC.  Muffin’s 4 brothers played ice hockey, Muffin and her sister figure skated, mom and dad were heavily involved doing everything from coaching to writing weekly articles for the Chestnut Hill Local Newspaper.   By the 1990’s Muffin’s sons were playing hockey at WSC and the second generation was enjoying arguably the finest hockey experience in the Delaware Valley.   So it was only natural that Stephen Oppenheimer, Wave One’s art director, was thrilled to get the opportunity to flex his artistic muscles, toned earning his BS in Product Design at the University of Oregon, working on the WSC Jersey Project.  Who better to tackle this work than a  WSC Jr Hockey alum.

Jr. Hockey director Walter Muehlbronner wanted a fresh new look that would excite the Warriors (WSC Hockey Players nickname).  WSC colors had been red, white and navy for many years.  An Indian head logo similar to the Chicago Blackhawks logo had been the primary face of the junior hockey program for years.  The most recent look was red jerseys and white jerseys manufactured using the sublimation process that looked nice but just didn’t budge the needle on the excitement meter.  Wally wanted a more traditional hockey “sweater” with appliqued patches and tackle twill numbers.

Stephen started with a revision of the Warrior logo for the front of the jerseys, added shoulder patches, a small version of the front logo with crossed tomahawks for one shoulder and a circular patch that incorporated the WSC Shield logo.  Two color sleeve and back tackle twill numbers adorned the new royal blue New York Rangers pattern away jerseys.  On the white home jerseys, Montreal Canadians pattern,  Wally wanted  3 color tackle twill numbers.  For the first time in memory, player names were included on the backs of the 2016-2017 WSC Hockey jerseys, via tackle twill name plates.

After much back and forth and a variety of mockups the final jersey designs were agreed upon.  Players sizes, names and numbers were gathered and production commenced.  In customary fashion,  Wave One Sports constructed the high quality product on which our reputation has been built.  Both on time and on budget.  The Warriors took the ice for their first games of the 2016-2017 season wearing their new jerseys,  smiles were seen all around.
