TEMPLATE

Communicate your sock design ideas to us easily and quickly, the way you want.

Communicating your sock design idea to us helps ensure our artists create a digital proof to your liking. When requesting a 3D mockup through one of our product pages, here are the methods you can use to communicate your design idea to us:

  • Use our sock template (left) in a format that's most convenient for you
  • Provide a detailed description (no images or artwork necessary)
  • Use your own template if you've already prepared one
  • Attach a photo of a similar product that you want to emulate
  • Call us if you have any questions before submitting your mockup request

GUIDELINES

The following are general guidelines to follow when you design your own custom socks:

Graphics in cuff area not recommended in custom knitted socks

Graphics in the Cuff

The cuff is the topmost area of a sock, commonly ribbed in appearance and stretchy. Because this area is prone to stretching, it is considered a poor place to put a logo. Most logos are not suitable to be placed in the cuff area (large, simple logos are the exception).

Graphics in heel and toe areas not allowed in custom knitted socks

The Heel and Toe

The heel and toe areas of the sock are where knitting machines perform extra sequences in order to form the pocket-like shapes. Due to this, the machines are unable to perform knit-in designs in these areas. Only use solid colors for the heel and toe areas.

Fine graphics not allowed in custom knitted socks

Detailed Graphics

There are limitations to how detailed your sock design can get. Due to the nature of knit-in designs, very small and complex logos/designs are not suitable for custom knitted socks. Please feel free to contact us before submitting your mockup request if you think this applies to your design.

No gradients allowed in custom knitted socks

Number of Colors

Our machines are able to accommodate up to 6 yarn colors per design. Yarn colors are best communicated to us by using the Pantone solid color formula guide. We will use your provided pantone codes when selecting from the 1000's of yarn colors we have available.

SIZES

We offer standard sizing from infant to extra large adult sizes, and custom sizing.
