WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE PREMIUM LINE AND CLASSIC LINE? Our Premium and Classic lines are very similar with a few key differences. The Premium line is comprised of our retail quality socks – the exact same product we were founded on. It features a padded footbed, compression calves, and Strideline branding across the heel strap, as well as a S tag on the top of the sock. Our name on the product ensures that you are getting the best of the best. Our Classic line has the same mockup as the premium line and is available in all the same colors and lengths. This sock is slightly thinner, as it is run through the knitting machine one less time. The classic line is completely unbranded – your client’s logo is the only one in sight. The classic is also about a third less expensive as the premium line.

WHAT’S IN MY SOCK? 

PREMIUM – Proprietary blend of combed terry cotton, micro polyester and spandex that is sewn on terry machines, 144 point needle machines. Sweat-wicking and antimicrobial properties are added to the footbed. Double elastic to stay up on the calf. Micropoly features on foot to stay breathable.

CLASSIC – Proprietary blend of combed terry cotton, micro polyester and spandex that is sewn on terry machines, 144 point needle machines. Sweat-wicking and antimicrobial properties are added to the footbed.

BUSINESS – Terry cotton, micro polyester and elastic/spandex.

ONE PRESS/FULL SUB – Micro polyester and elastic/spandex.

WHAT’S THE DEAL WITH THE DESIGN WINDOW? Our printed Premium, Classic and Business socks all feature a full color design area that is 3.5 by 4.5 inches tall. This is the space we apply our digital ink printing process that allows us to create beautiful, detailed and PMS color-matched designs. The rest of the the sock is a pre-knit base and cannot be altered.

WHAT SIZE SHOULD I ORDER? Our socks come standard in a unisex, one size fits most option. We’ve found it works with about 99% of all orders! We offer a small size in our premium and classic lines, great for younger kids needing great custom socks.

WHAT’S THE TURNAROUND TIME? Our standard turnaround time is 4 weeks from the date of the PO and art approval. We have a 2-week rush rush available on some of our products – contact your rep to see if a 2-week rush is available on your order.

WHAT IS THE CANCELLATION POLICY? RUSH ORDERS: Once a rush order is placed and confirmed, it cannot be canceled or changed. The quantity and artwork are final. The PO is considered placed as soon a PO is received. NON-RUSH ORDERS: Within 24 hours of a PO submission, you can cancel or modify your order with no fee. After 24 hours, to cancel or modify the PO we require 50% fee of the order amount.

Of course, the material the socks are made of may be a consideration but the variations on material and material combinations are very numerous and narrowing it down from the two options above will make it less overwhelming for you to select the promotional socks you need. Last but not least, we will always work to stay within your budget.
