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 100 and 150 pairs however you can probably find lower or higher prices.

As a side note watch out for manufacturers that hide additional fees such as a set-up fee, which isn’t included in their unit price.

With this in mind, you should be able to find a manufacturer that matches your needs …
