Custom Socks Wholesale Quantities

Custom Socks Wholesale Quantities...

One of the most common concerns people have when trying to make custom socks is about the minimum quantity of socks they have to order to get started. Because making socks requires a lot of labor and time, real custom socks manufacturers – those that make your socks from scratch just for you – always have minimum quantities which are usually around 100+. While, on one hand, it is true that having to order a wholesale quantity of socks from a manufacturer might call for a non-negligible investment, this also guarantees your socks will be 100% designed and produced for you, rather than some unscrupulous manufacturer just stitching your logo to whatever model they might already have in...
Knee High Socks for Teams

Knee High Socks for Teams...

Knee high socks are probably the most popular sock model for sports teams. Why? Because they protect legs from injuries and from the cold. They are mainly used for team sports but their style can vary widely from one sport to another. Sports using them include soccer, football, baseball, hockey, softball, lacrosse, volleyball and even cycling. While models for the likes of football and baseball are pretty basic – usually one color with or without stripes on the cuff – and can be referred as old-fashioned, other leagues such as lacrosse or softball tend to feature brighter and more creative designs with plenty of colors, dots and patterns. As a result, there has been an increased demand for professionally customized knee-highs as these teams want to create their own, distinct design, featuring their name and logo. When it comes to material, various combinations are available but cotton should be avoided as it causes blisters and injuries. That said, while still widely in use, some indoor sports such as basketball are replacing them with no-show models, for fashion purpose. Because trends come and go, they will still be around, with ups and downs, the fact that they date back to the old Rome confirming their enduring...

Custom Socks

While you can find plenty of generic sports socks out there, whether it’s at sports, brands or department stores, if you are part of a team, it is best to have your own customized model featuring your logo. Because sports socks are very specific in terms of material and design, you should stay away from your average personalized branding store and look for specialized manufacturers. Here are some things you should know and will help you get the socks you want. Look for a real custom sock manufacturer such as this company, which means they will create the socks from scratch for you and will knit your logo within the sock. Stay away from fake manufacturers that just add your logo to whatever model they have in stock or just do printing, which is crappy quality. Know what you want in terms of design and model (ankle, no-show, quarter, crew, knee-high) and then ask manufacturers if they can make it: they should be able to create a mockup based on the colors, logo, size, style and textile you want. Whether you want dress, work or casual socks, you can select a textile that is comfortable and don’t need to worry about anything else. However, if you need socks for sports, your socks should also be durable and prevent blisters. In that case, look for athletic wick-moisture away models. When it comes to turnaround, it should take between 8 and 10 weeks, which leaves you enough time to plan ahead. In some case rush orders are available but be aware that it ain’t cheap. As for pricing, it mostly depends on the quantity. To get an idea, most companies charge a minimum of $6 per pair with minimum quantities between...
Cycling Socks for a More Comfortable Bicycling Experience

Cycling Socks for a More Comfortable Bicycling Experience...

Serious cyclists know there is a world of difference between wearing regular sport socks on a long ride as opposed to wearing special cycling socks. Cycling socks cost more, but prevent accidents because the feet do not get wet and slip off the pedals of the bike. They prevent injury because fewer seams prevent blisters and other skin irritations. Cycling socks have extra support and padding making a long ride much more comfortable. The extra cost is worth it in the long run. Types The most common types of cycling socks are made from Spandex, Lycra, Polyester and wool. Cotton cycling socks are also available, but avoid those made from 100 percent cotton since they tend to become stiff after getting wet and irritate the skin on the feet. Spandex socks are light, well ventilated and elastic. They form-fit to the foot and may leave the cyclist wondering if they forgot to put their socks on. The sock has an inner lining of material that pulls moisture away from the skin and absorbs it. Spandex socks work well in hot to medium cold weather, but will not keep feet warm in cold temperatures. Polyester socks are not as stretchy as Spandex, but keep even the sweatiest feet dry. They are not well ventilated and not suggested for hot weather. Wool cycling socks are the best to wear in the winter. Feet stay warm no matter what the temperature is or how hard the wind blows. Even though wool is thick the socks are still well ventilated to keep feet dry. How Cycling Socks Work Fibers in the socks are designed to draw moisture away from the foot. Moisture is absorbed in an outer layer that allows for evaporation. Yarn...
