Custom Printed Socks Featuring Etsy Artists

Sockprints has teamed up with some very talented Etsy artists to bring our customers a fun new option when purchasing custom printed socks!  Sold in sets of three at SockprintsOnEtsy, each pair of socks displays a beautiful design or photograph from these select artists.    

We’re pleased to introduce you to them...

Meet Kelly Walston of Paint, Fabric and Whimsy.  As a native Californian her work is influenced by Mexican Folk Art.  She incorporates highly detailed and colorful Oaxacan style to her artwork.  Kelly is also inspired by her experience working with children’s museums and with her own daughters.  For more information about Kelly’s art, take a peek at her Etsy shop, PaintFabricWhimsy.

We love the bright vibrant colors of her artwork and how beautiful and detailed they print on our white socks!

Stephanie Girard’s Etsy shop, Lark Road Rhymes features made to order poems and messages.  When we saw how she personalizes each poem and how great her designs look on photo paper, we knew they’d be a hit for our custom socks too.  Stephanie’s unique, personalized designs make great engagement and wedding gifts.  She also has a full selection of children’s poems for nurseries, baptism, and youth sports. 

We’re happy to announce that we’re adding youth size socks to our product line up later this summer and we look forward to working with Stephanie to bring some children’s designs to our socks too!

Meet Kimberley from Tapadh Leibh Cards!  She’s a teacher with a passion for working with youth as well as the performing and fine arts.  Her art is inspired by her family, friends, humor and her travels.  Tapadh Leibh means, thank you, in Gaelic and pays homage to her Scottish heritage.

The photograph shown on this pair of socks was taken in Cowichan Bay, British Columbia Canada and is titled, “Natural Color.”  Simply beautiful!

If you’re not familiar with Etsy.com, it’s a fantastic, online marketplace filled with art, handmade crafts and vintage items.  You’ll find all sorts of talented artists and inspiring shops selling their items on Etsy.  For more information about these artists, their work and to check out our socks, explore - SockprintsOnEtsy, PaintFabricWhimsy, LarkRoadRhymes, TapadhLeibhCards

designs by clients are not always the easiest to understand. Fortunately there are solutions to help you create designs that manufacturers can read, so you get the socks that you want. Yhao sock manufacturer
