Our Team

Our Story

We’re pretty much the same as everyone else; kids playing after school sports, baseball, footballs, basketball, volley ball, the usual assortment.  Well, one difference, a lot of us at Custom Design Group started our careers in the sock business, designing, manufacturing and marketing high- quality athletic socks.  Pretty soon our kids were asking for what seemed logical, socks with their team names.  Local manufacturing options existed - 6-10 weeks turn around, high minimums, and said politely, not inexpensive.  There had to be another way.

We worked with our athletic sock manufacturers to come up with some socks with our kid’s school names knit into the fabric.  More or less a favor to us and to keep the kids happy.  Couple of things happened.  Our kids starting wearing their socks to practice and the whole team wanted them.   And they’d play in them and their opponents wanted custom socks, too.  So we had some knit for the local teams in our area.   And we realized we were onto something.

We took our acrylic All-Sports athletic sock, added some visual design features, created a  customization panel along the back of the sock, stocked 16 basic yarn colors, locked in a handful of sock machines dedicated to knitting this one basic style.

 

We invented “Standardized Customization”

  • Great quality athletic sock, moisture-wicking acrylic body, arch compression, seamless toe, half cushion foot.
  • 16 stock yarn colors producing hundreds of school uniform combinations.
  • Maximum 10 letters knit into the socks.
  • Four sizes available.
  • 14-21 day turn around.
  • Pricing 50% below the market.

 

Didn’t stop there, never does.  We were making a great product but the market was asking for even more customization options; patterns, wild graphics, and team mascot logos.  This demand gave rise to sublimation printing on socks allowing for unlimited graphics and designs.  We got into that pretty good using local resources to print the socks.  In the course of things we created a unique sock that maintains the foot cushioning while providing the vibrant printed leg.

 

Two things happened next. Teams and schools really liked the socks but they only wanted one source for all their custom needs- Uniforms, Tee Shirts, Hats, Hoodies and of course, Socks.  Right about this time a second event occurred, our sublimation printers ran into some issues.  So we bought a local print shop and instantly we were in the custom shirt and uniform business.  Along with the socks, of course.
