Designing Custom Socks

Step One

Decide what you're using your socks for. This will make it easier to design them. If you plan on giving them as a gift to clients or using them for a trade show/exhibition/conference etc, then it is important to make sure your brand identity is included in some way. This could be anything from:

  • Incorporating the Logo
  • Using your Brand Pantone Colors

Another option for the logo is to include it on the cover card. Every pair of custom socks has an individual and custom cover card. 

You may want to use your custom socks as a giveaway. If using them for this purpose, the design should be something that works well across social media channels-the images should pop. This can be done via the design itself on the socks or via color. The colors can be as fun and vibrant as you like!

Step Two

When you have decided what you're using the socks for, it is easier then to select a style. Different styles of custom socks include:

  • Ankle Socks
  • Classic Dress Socks
  • Knee High Socks
  • Athletic Crew Socks

The most common sock for company socks are dress socks. Everyone loves them and they can be worn daily , not just  for special events or certain occasions. 

Step Three

When you have selected the style, the next part is to choose the colors and the design together. The reason for this is that they need to work together. There is no point having the main sock one color and then the design itself is hard to see because of the light shade or clashing colors. This is what makes custom socks the best kind of socks. As they aren't premade, everything is fully designed from scratch and the design is woven in. Due to that, you can opt for any color you like!

Step Four

Sizes. What size custom sock should you go for? The most popular size is Unisex.

Step Five

Design your cover card. This can be designed after the custom socks and the reason for that is you will want something that works with the sock design and colors and not something that works against it. As the custom socks help to promote brand identity, you don't want to get your message or brand confused. Most of the cover cards are designed in brand colors with a logo and website details.
