Domestic Quick Turnaound Sox Shirts

Article Link –> Chicago Tribune | After Sox victory, firms go to work

I’m in Chicago and saw this in the Trib. The World Series shirts are printed immediately after the winner is determined, which eliminates the waste of printing up shirts for both teams and having them shipped from China. It’s no surprise that, for quick turnaround and just-in-time, there’s no substitute for local production. Sure, the shirts were probably made a long time ago in Vietnam or another low-cost country, but the “postponement” strategy allowed the shirts to be finalized at the very last minute.

How would you organize and structure your business/factory if everything had to be done in such short to-order bursts?
