Design Questions

Can I design my own sock?

Unfortunately, the results of clients designing their own socks never meets their expectations. There are some ‘rules’ that we adhere to get the absolute best result. We do however encourage you to send us a design brief in as much detail as possible of what you have in mind. We can also send a printable mock up to you that you can draw on. From there we will recreate your dream sock into a digital mockup for further review. 

What is the difference between a vector and high res image?

We always require a vector logo/image format, which means the image is not compressed into pixels. The files should be high resolution to print the best quality socks for you.

A vector file is an editable file which is available in AI, EPS, PDF and SVG formats. Usually, a high-resolution image like a Jpeg, TIFF or PNG file is a rasterized file which will pixelate when edited.

Are there design limitations?

There are a few design elements that can influence your end product. Fine patterns and lines, small logos and low contrast colours. 

We will let you know from your design brief what the limitations are and how we can overcome them.
