Custom Sock Service Introduction


Brief introduction of custom sock service offered by MeetSocks, an original sock manufacturer in China

MeetSocks was initially a sock factory producing socks for importers and big brands, in recently years we have also been seeing a huge demand in small custom socks, so we opened a flexible sock production line back in 2017. With more than 2 years of operation, we have managed to decrease the minimum ordering quantity from 1,000 pairs to 100 pairs per design per size, as a result of our process-wise lean management throughout the custom sock workflow, it did help a lot of small business get started with much smaller investment. Although the profit is small compared to our original sock OEM business, but we do feel proud of it.

We have over 500 colors of yarn in stock for your choice and we offer physical samples to customers for approval before every batch of bulk production. Below please find a brief introduction of our one-stop custom sock manufacturing service, In a word, we accept both big orders(for sock importers or distributors), and small orders(for small business/independent brands).
[Update on June, 2021]
Now as the business keeps growing for our flexible line (which allows minimum ordering quantity of custom socks from 100 pairs per design per size), we have hired a designer to help customers make unique designs. Here is what we are currently offering regarding sock designs:
  • Digitalize your hand-drawing: When you already have an idea of the sock but you are not familiar with graphic software, our designer will help with the digitalization, for this service we charge 30$.
  • Create unique designs from scratch: We can create a series of unique designs based on your brand personalities, for this the design fee is much higher, depending on details.
