Q: What is the most effective way to produce socks with colours, prints & patterns of high quality?
A: This is a tough question to answer, as I am not sure what you actually mean when you say “effective.”
If you are talking about speed, sublimation printing is an excellent way to get socks with designs on them to customers quickly.
If you are talking about quality, socks that are knitted by hand or via machine that includeor are the way to go. This is because a knitted pattern will last longer than one that is printed on to a sock.
If you are talking about price, it depends on how many pairs of socks you are having made, as typically the more you make, the price goes down. This is true if the socks are sublimated or machine knitted.
If you are talking about which process creates less waste, it’s a toss up, but I’d guess that knitted socks produce less industrial waste even though dye sublimation printing creates less chemical waste than traditional printing.
Q: How are socks printed? A: Great question. I’ve seen it a lot online. Socks that have a printed design on them are usually printed using sublimation. Sublimation (also called dye sublimation) is the process by which an image is added to specially coated products (ceramics, metals, fabrics) using sublimation ink and heat. Most people/companies...
Q: What makes socks so expensive? How can someone justify charging $18 for one pair? A: All socks are not expensive. Nearly $20 a pair is kind of high, but I can understand that price point. Expensive socks are made for and marketed to people who can afford them. They aren’t marketed to or made for...
