Custom sewn and embroidered socks
Here at The Print Room we really do rate a good sock. Although we love a good uniform and creating uniforms for businesses, an individual should always be allowed to wear their sock of choice. We feel custom socks are a perfect branded piece of merchandise for any brand or business as everyone has feet and most of us have 10 toes to keep snug. Below are a few pointers on where to start your sock making journey.
Embroidery on standard off the shelf socks
The easiest way to customise and brand socks is to add embroidery to standard, off the shelf socks. There are a range of different styles of ‘standard’ socks that we supply, including socks from AS Colour, Gildan, as well as our own New Zealand made sock that we produce locally and embroider in house.
If you are intending to do a small run of 20 - 50 pairs of socks, embroidery would be the most economical way to create custom branded socks for your brand, business or organisation.
The placement of the embroidery on a sock is limited as we need to be able to get our embroidery hoop inside the sock during production. Therefore, the best place to brand the sock with embroidery is on the upper ankle, usually, this is on the side, but it can be done on the front or back too. The size of the embroidery can be up to 40mm in width and 35mm in height. There are limitations when designing a file that is to be embroidered 30mm or smaller. For instance, any text smaller than 5mm in height will not be legible.
