What is important to understand when ordering are some different things. Today we cover them. 1. Type of socks. To keep things simple, we cover the three basic types of socks: 1. Ankle 2. Crew 3. Knee High 1. Ankle socks Ankle socks, which you may have guessed, go up to the ankle. These are standard socks. While it is very common, it is not always best for custom because it does not allow much space for the custom design itself. 2. Crew Socks Crew socks are very popular for crazy and custom socks. Crew socks are designed to go up to the middle of the calf. This allows more space with your own design, but not so high that it goes beyond the knee. 3. Knee high socks Knee high socks, which you may have guessed, go up to the knee or slightly higher. These tend to be popular for athletic sports such as softball or baseball, or for parties, festivals or for those who like knee high socks. What are you ordering? We always recommend ordering crew socks for customized orders, as they provide enough space for a fully customized design, but are not as high as knee heights, which many do not carry on a typical occasion. Crew socks can be worn both at work and casually, making them most practical. Be sure to also check.
