From punk rock bands to trailblazing tech companies, we've created custom socks for a range of clients to help them stand out from the crowd at events, conferences, festivals and more. In this blog post, we’ll walk you through everything you need to know to promote your brand with high quality custom socks from MERGE4!
All we need from you to get started is your organization's logo and any other artwork you'd like on your socks. We work with Adobe Suite products, so ideally art should be submitted in layered formats, but we’ll take PNGs, PDFs, JPEGs, screenshots, Microsoft paint files… we can pretty much work with anything you’ve got to get your project rolling! Our in-house design team takes it from there and creates your custom design from scratch. You'll work directly with our production team from concept to development, and receive three mockups to choose from at no extra charge. Our turnaround time is 60 days from the time you place your order.
It’s as simple as that! We love bringing custom sock ideas to life and welcoming more A+ brands to the MERGE4 family. Check out some of the amazing people we’ve worked with:Salesforce
Santa Cruz Bicycles
Sons of Apollo
San Diego Zoo
Sacred Heart High School

Creating your custom branded socks with MERGE4
Check out our custom sock minimums, pricing, perks and turnaround time to help you get started on your personalized socks!
150 unit minimum
We keep our minimums low to make getting custom socks affordable. 300 units is our minimum to keep our pricing simple
Our pricing for custom socks starts at $8.50 per unit for our minimum of 300 units. If you want to order more, your price will go down – simple as that. Contact us to find the price that’s right for your needs.
Yep, you heard right – once you send us your logo and artwork, our in-house design team does all the heavy lifting and provides you with 3-4 mockups free of charge. Once you pick a mockup you like (it might be hard to choose!), you’ll work directly with our design team to refine your sock design to make sure it’s perfect before we send it out for production.
Our process is a little different from most custom sock companies – rather than quickly screen printing your design on a generic sock, we create your socks from scratch. The yarns are picked specifically for your colors, the stitching is planned around the layout of your design, and your custom ‘fortune cookie quote’ is sewn into the inside cuff as a secret message for the wearer! Since our production is more specialized, detailed and quality-driven, our turnaround time is 60 days from the time you place your order with us. When you receive your custom socks, you’ll be getting a product that is truly designed for YOU from the ground up! So if you know your company has a trade show coming up in a few months, NOW is the time to jump on your sock design to make sure you have the perfect unique promotional tool.
Thanks for reading!
