You take pride in your team’s kit. Those colors are your colors. They identify your team, and provide your team’s identity.
Your uniform is more than your jersey. You need to look like a team from top to bottom as you go out and play like a team from whistle to whistle. From the jersey to the socks, everything should match perfectly and let everyone know who you are. It can be easy to overlook the socks when designing your team’s uniform, but adding sublimated socks to complete the look can be quick and easy.
Socks should be designed with the rest of the uniform
Jerseys, pants, or shorts are given their due attention when designing team uniforms, but socks can become an afterthought. That might not seem like a big deal - everyone has socks, and we can tell ourselves that no one really looks at them. But they are an important part of the jersey. And if the ball is on the ground, the players can use socks to recognize “teammate” or “opponent” before making a pass, deciding which direction to run or closing in on a defensive play.
Socks are not something teams can overlook.
Getting a basic sock in something close to your team’s color is easy, but that will not do justice to the look. If your colors are royal blue and white, a navy blue sock with red stripes will not be enough (and remember to play it safe and pick bright colors if you are into pond hockey!)
Get your creative juices flowing to create a look that complements the jersey and pulls the look together.
Team socks can be as creative as you are
The creativity you can show on a custom sublimated pair of socks is only limited by your imagination and the length of the cloth. The printing style will allow for any design of your choice.
Start with a sock in the colors we have available, or create your design from scratch and get fully customized sublimated socks.
Any pattern, style, or print can be created with sublimation. Stripes, logos, team names, numbers, shapes… whatever will make your socks match your jersey and your team’s identity, we can do it.
Quality assurance for sublimated socks
All of our custom sublimated socks are made of polyester, which works the best for the sublimation process. The material will also have air mesh or mock mesh, depending on the style you choose.
Polyester is also durable enough to hold up under the pressures of a hard-fought season. It can handle just about anything your athletes will do to them on the pitch, field or court, as well as being resistant to shrinking, stretching, wrinkles or abrasion when you keep them clean between games.
Like any other socks, ours come in several sizes and lengths. Depending on the style, some are small / medium / large, while others are youth (21”), intermediate (25”), adult and adult wide (both 30”).
When should you order custom socks for your team?
From the design to production, custom uniform items take longer to create, so don’t wait until the week before opening day. Create the design well in advance and send it to us when you are ready to see what it will look like. We will create a mock-up of the product and send it to you for your approval. Only after you tell us that it’s the perfect match for the rest of your team’s uniform will we make the entire batch.
The expected time from order to delivery is between 4-5 weeks, so designing your socks is a perfect off-season activity!
What goes into the cost of a sublimated sock?
Custom sublimated socks cost between $20 - $60. Much of that price is from the sublimation itself.
Sublimation can be a costly process, and we invest several hours in creating socks worthy of your uniform. However, the intricacy of your design does not impact the cost at all: whether you want a simple stripe or a complex logo underneath the player’s name and number, the price will be the same.
We require a minimum initial order of 12 pairs of the same design. However, fill-in orders have no minimum because once we have your design set up, we have it for life!
