Socks 101: What to Know Before Making Custom Socks October 30 2020, 0 Comments
While plain, generic socks may get the job done, customized socks can capture the spirit of your sports team or business and help build team morale. However, you may assume that coming up with a design of your own is too time-consuming or difficult. Fortunately, with Socks Rock, our online ordering system makes it incredibly simple to choose a design you like that incorporates your team logo, colors, and anything else you may want in a sock. Before making your order, use this guide to learn how you can make a sock that meets your individual needs and to better understand our ordering process.
Choose Your Style
There are countless ways you can design a pair of socks, so it can be difficult to know where to start. If you don’t have a clear vision in mind, browsing our pre-made custom socks can help give you inspiration. Available in multiple lengths and sizes, we have several socks with stripes, plaid, stars, static, and other designs that can be substituted with the colors of your choice. Depending on the design, some socks already have a section where you can place text of your choice or a team logo.
If you already have a look you know you want that doesn’t fit one of the styles we’ve already put together, you create a custom sock completely from scratch by filling a contact form or contacting us directly. Simply include any graphics you want to appear on your sock and include any specific instructions.
Build Your Sock
Once you find a sock you like, press the “Customize Now” button to get started on the design process. From here, you can upload a picture of your logo and build your own sock by selecting the colors you want on different parts of the design. You can also select the length and style from the choices that are available. Some designs have a box where you can fill in any request in more detail.
Choosing a color
To ensure the closest match possible, use our color descriptions and chart to select a hue. The colors on your screen or monitor can slightly change the shade of the actual color you’ll see on the sock, so using our written descriptions can help.
Selecting a Fabric and Special Features
We offer several different yarns and fabrics that each have their own benefits. Our list of materials we use include:
- Coolmax® Polyester
- Lycra® Spandex
- Merino Wool
- There also several technologies that can help increase the performance of your sock:
- Blister Control
- Climate Control
Finish Your Order
To complete your custom socks purchase, select how many of each size sock you need. We require a minimum of 12 socks per size you need for each order. Simply add to cart and enter your purchase information to finish. We’ll send a mockup with one business day and ship within three weeks after you approve the design.
