How do I design custom socks online?

1. Get Your Logo Ready

There are a lot of considerations when you customize socks with a logo - such as sizing of the logo, how the custom knitted sock design will look stretched over the foot, and how well the design will stitch into the socks. That’s why you want to make sure you are picking a high resolution logo that will get you the best result with custom branded socks!

We always recommend having an EPS file available if possible, but if that’s not possible - or rather than a logo you have art that you’re leading with, just do your best due diligence to have it all prepared. A lot of times we see brands and companies have multiple logos, or brand guidelines that come with it- we say the more information the merrier! That way your branded socks are the best they can be!

2. Use Professional Custom Sock Design Services

We may be tooting our own horn, but we wouldn't be if it wasn't the best way to make custom socks! At Sock Club, we are experts at making all types of designs for custom promo socks of any kind! Our in-house team of professional sock designers are also your best resource to bring your imagination to life! 

Being creative is super fun, but not always the easiest to put on paper. That's why people love relying on our team to come up with the coolest customized socks with logo. 

Especially when it comes to corporate socks and promotional socks where you want to make sure the design really speaks to your brand identity and doesn't end up in a trashcan or hidden away in the drawer! 

Custom branded socks are the new trending swag item that can excite anyone. As an added bonus you can always get your custom sock designs from us free!

3. Try an Online Custom Sock Designer

There are a few websites and custom sock manufacturers out there that let you custom design socks. These design tools make it easy for you to play around with patterns, templates, and color options to see what works with your logos on socks before placing a bulk order. 

We think this is a great way to start drumming up ideas and getting inspiration of what your custom pair of socks could look like or easily get those logo socks in just a few clicks.

Plus being able to create custom crew socks online means you can access your work 24/7 and complete your order whenever you're ready- super convenient! If this sounds like what you're looking for, try our online design tool to customize your socks!

4. Download a Template if You’re a Pro

If you're tech-savvy or know your way around Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, this is a great way to get exactly what you're looking for in your ideal company logo socks. 

Our design template includes a step-by-step guide to help you through the process of getting logos on socks while ensuring that they will look great after they've been knitted. 

Using a template is definitely best for those who aren't having any trouble coming up with cool ideas for personalized socks. Not only do you have full control over the creative process, but you'll probably have a lot of fun doing it!

We also recommend using additional resources to make sure you can be as exact as you want. For example at Sock Club, we publish our yarn colors which are all labeled with their HEX, PMS, and Real Life Example. We also encourage DIY designers to check on the size charts to better visualize what the end result will look like!

How to Choose Which Web Tool is Right for Your Project

Choosing the right web tool for your project can be a daunting task, with so many different options to choose from. But don't worry, we are here to help! Web tools are great for many things and the choice of web tools is essential to the success of your project. There are many different tools that you can use, but not all these tools are suited for your specific needs.

Sock Club's three main design processes for designing your own custom socks online, including free design support, a downloadable template, and an online sock design builder

Consider your own creative talent - creativity is easy to dream up but may be hard to articulate in a technical way like with Photoshop or Illustrator. Your custom sock design may be limited by yourself, or made perfect if you've got the professional background! For those who don't, there are always online builders that can lend a hand, but definitely by far the most recommended way from a custom sock company like ours is to use the free professional services provided at your disposal!
