Sublimated Sock Info

The new trendy sublimated sock is seen everywhere! The reason people use them so much, is because colors are unlimited, in fact you can even print a photograph! Typical custom knit sock orders average around 1,200 pairs per order. We only require 48 pair minimum. The blanks are already knitted and then we pull from our stock and print in the USA.

PROCESS

The artwork is printed onto heat transfer paper much like a temporary tattoo, the image is printed as a mirror image then heat pressed into the fabric so the inks create a gas and fuses with the fibers in the sock. The second step is very important and some printers don’t take the time, but we have to “cure” the sock after it’s printed. This ensures the quality of the ink and withstanding fading over time.

The nature of the printing of the sock is heat press, so it flattens the sock. After a few washings the sock will become softer and somewhat fuller, but it is a polyester sock, so it will remain flat and smooth.

FABRIC
98% Polyester/2% elastane

SIZES
We have a variety of lengths. Crew, knee high and tube socks. Sizing is Men’s small, medium, large and x-large.

CUSTOM PACKAGING
