When to order if you have a deadline

Because lots of our customers need socks for events such as races, games, tournaments, barvitzmas, etc … they are sometime not sure if they should order 8 or 6 weeks before the event as our turn over is 6 to 8 weeks. So to clarify this, here is how it works:

Even though, it often takes around 6 weeks to get an order produced, you should be ordering at least 8 weeks before your event to guarantee you will get your socks on time.

It works the same way for our express orders. Even though it stated as taking 3 to 4 weeks and, usually, only takes 3 weeks, you should at least place your order 4 weeks ahead of your event to guarantee you will be getting your custom design socks on time.

What are the prices to make custom socks?

The prices to get custom socks made vary, depending on the type of sock (ankle, crew, or tube) and the number of pairs ordered.  Currently the minimum quantity is 50 pairs but there is a big price break for 100 pairs, which is why we usually recommend ordering 100 pairs minimum. Then, obviously, the more socks you order, the cheaper the price per sock will be.

Wanna know what our latest prices are? It’s easy, just enter your information in the box featured below “How much it costs”, at the bottom of our custom socks pages, and you will be redirected to our price page!

Socks that wick moisture away

Following a few questions I received, I wanted to confirm for all our clients and potential clients that, just like us, are into sports,  that our custom socks indeed wick moisture away. Our socks are technical socks that are made with 85% Ultra Wicking Acrylic, 10% Spadex and 5% Nylon (it’s like coolmax) so you are in good hands: you won’t get blisters contrary to socks made with cotton.

In case you are wondering, whatever custom sock model you order, you will get the same fabric and quality – and yes, they are durable, resistant and pretty comfortable as well (I obviously wear our socks almost everyday, whatever type of shoes I’m wearing).

What is the turn over time to get custom made socks?

You have two options when it comes lead times:

  • If you choose standard delivery (UPS ground), it will take between 6 and 8 weeks. While it usually takes less than 8 weeks, we recommend to order 8 weeks before your event to make sure you get your socks ahead of your deadline.
  • If you choose express delivery, we will place your order ahead of other orders and you will get your custom made socks in only 3 to 4 weeks. This option is for customers that are in a rush and because it involves an additional fee,  we recommend placing you order early so that you can get standard delivery.

Custom Cycling Socks Models

For those of you who are part of a cycling team or are organizing cycling events (whether it’s rcustom cycling sock sampleoad, mountain biking, etc …) you might wonder what type of sock you should get as there is no strict rule for that sport.

Well, while you can rule out tube socks, unless you are following 1890’s fashion trends, these are mostly ankle socks – and sometimes crew socks – that are used as custom cycling socks

Please note this means that both regular ankle socks and shorter no-show socks are used as bike socks. To get an idea, you can check on the right an example of a custom cycling sock made for one of our clients.

About getting custom socks samples

Since we launched our site, about a year ago, we’ve been getting lots of requests for samples. Most of the time, people just email me a short message saying “send me samples” and then get upset when I ask them a few questions about what they are planning to order.

So even though we obviously send samples to potential clients who might want to check our products’ quality, we just ask you to provide us with some minimum information when contacting us:

  • how many pairs you would like to order (even if it’s a rough estimate).
  • what is your deadline to make sure we could deliver on time if you were ordering with us.
  • send us your logo to ensure we can do it

That’s about it! Also since we get lots of requests and orders, it sometimes happen that we are short in samples. So we will do our best to send you the model you are interested in, otherwise we will send you another model just so that you can check the quality of our material and designs. Also don’t forget to check our custom socks samples page where you can see pictures of some of the models we made for our clients …

What are custom tube socks for

As you might have noticed tube socks are not your average sock and you might wonder what they are used for. Well, custom made tube socks are mostly based for 2 purposes:  sports and fashion.

When it comes to sports, they are used for team sports such as soccer, hockey, football, softball, baseball, lacrosse (along crew socks), volleyball, basketball (along crew socks) and rugby. As you can see it is quite an extensive list and regarding designs, it varies from one sport to the other; for example, ruby socks tend to feature stripe, softball socks have fun colors and logos while baseball socks are usually plain.

In terms of fashion, custom tube socks are mostly associated to the goth/punk look among girls, which means they are usually black with designs featuring skulls, etc … (you can see an example on the right).
