Many competitive sports teams order custom apparel for their players to wear beneath their uniforms or while training. For example, a team might give its players custom dri-fit clothing that features the team's logo on each garment. One important type of apparel that you can easily forget is athletic socks. While they might not be as exciting as other garments, they're a vital piece of clothing for any athlete — and a product that you can customize to help give your players a professional look. Here are some ideas to consider for designing custom dri-fit socks for your competitive sports team.
Virtually every sports team has at least two colors that it uses in its logos and uniforms. While your team might primarily focus on one color, it probably has a second, complementary color. Focus on these two colors when you're designing your custom dri-fit socks. It's a conventional approach to use your dominant color as the main color on your socks, but you can certainly change things up a little by choosing socks that predominantly show the complementary color.
Most athletic socks have stripes, so this type of design is perfect for including your secondary color. For example, if your team's colors are orange and blue, a sensible design is to choose orange socks with a blue stripe. If you use a third color, such as white, consider a design in which the socks are orange and there are two stripes — one in blue and one in white. Stripes on athletic socks are conventionally horizontal, but many custom apparel companies give you the chance to use a vertical stripe up the back of the sock instead, which can make for a unique look.
Of course, you'll want to evaluate options for including your team's logos on the socks. An obvious place is positioned on the outside of the sock where it will be most visible — in other words, on the left side of the left sock. You might be surprised at how effectively custom apparel companies can stitch logos into athletic socks, which will give your team's socks a high-quality appearance. You don't necessarily need to use your logo. You might choose to have the nickname of your team or the name of your city stitched up the sides of the socks instead. By implementing these ideas, you'll have a sock design that you'll be excited to share with your players.
