7. Are there any restrictions?
First off, let’s see what‘s not limited! We do full customization of your sock design. All over images, step and repeat designs, cool skater stripes, multi geometric, anything you can dream up, we can do. See our gallery of sock world examples.
We can knit socks with up to 6 colors per sock design. Color and detail can affect each other so a lot of detail can limit the amount of color and vice versa. Simple, elegant designs work best, but we can try any design. Socks are designed and knit on a grid pattern which transfers into around 26 dpi. Small text has to be at least 3/16” tall. Straight fonts work best for readability and we try to have at least 2 pixel wide lettering for good visibility. Italicized fonts and fonts with serifs are more difficult and usually have to be a little larger to work well.
