CAN I SEE WHAT MY SOCKS WILL LOOK LIKE?

Yes, if you choose to receive a complimentary proof/preview it will be sent via SMS and/or email once your order has been processed by our designers. Depending on the chosen service type, this can take 1-5 days. Once received you can then approve or make changes – we won’t proceed until you are 100% happy with the design.

HOW DO I KNOW A PHOTO IS GOOD ENOUGH?

We will always try our best to correct and enhance any photo sent to us, however below are few guidelines to follow…

  • Avoid blurry photo’s. We can sharpen to an extent, but starting with a nice sharp photo will yield the best results.
  • Straight (Head-on passport style) shots are preferred with the complete head in the photo.
  • Good lighting, the more detail in the face the better.
HOW MANY FACES/HEADS CAN I HAVE?

We allow one included in the price, additional heads/faces/objects can be added during your order.

MY PHOTO HAS MULTIPLE PEOPLE IN IT, IS THAT OK?

Yes, we use Photoshop® to manually cut your faces out!

DOES IT HAVE TO BE A PERSON?

Not at all, we are happy to feature anything even an object.

WHAT IF I WAND A FULL PHOTO OR DESIGN PRINTED?

That’s pefectly fine, just note that we will print the same supplied image on both socks unless specified to flip, one for the left and one for the right in the instructions. Alternitively you can supply two images.

AFTER VIEWING THE PROOF, CAN I CHANGE THE PHOTO?

Yes but it will incur a $3.95 fee. Creating your socks is a manual process performed locally which takes time and off-course expense.

CAN I HAVE A LOGO INSTEAD OF A HEAD?

Yes you can, we print a lot of corporate branded socks and ties

DO YOU CUT OUT THE HEAD FOR ME?

Yes we do! all you need to worry about is sending us the photo. If your photo has more than one person in it, please let us know who you would like to feature on the sock.

Ordering & Payment

DO YOU CUSTOM DESIGN?

Yes, all our ready-made templates are just guides. We will follow your instructions above everything else. If you want something specific (e.g. rainbow socks with bananas and unicorns all over), tell us in the ‘instructions for your designer’ section at the end of the order process.

WHAT'S YOUR MONEY BACK GUARANTEE

In the unlikely event that we can’t produce a preview that you are happy with, we will refund your order in full – we are always happy to make alterations until you are 100% happy.

HOW LONG WILL MY ORDER TAKE?

Socks & Pluggers (Thongs)…

Standard production time is five business days, give or take a few days, depending on how busy we are. One Day Rush is the same business day if ordered by 5pm. Standard+ is three business days. We always ship your order either the same business or the next at the latest after you approve your design. Postage from Brisbane varies depending on if you upgrade to Express Post, and your location, e.g. WA and NT, always take longer.

Briefs…

Production time is 7-10 business days, and this is because not only do we have to design, but we also need to print, cut and stitch, which takes longer.

HOW DO I ORDER MULTIPLE SIZES OF THE SAME DESIGN?

All you need to do is tell us the sizes that you require in the instructions area, eg. 2 X Small, 5 X Medium and then simply adjust the QTY at the cart or checkout.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Step 1.
Firstly, choose a base design and make it your own by adding text, photo’s and colour (they look great with bright colours!)

Step 2.
Your socks will then be added to the cart – You can also upgrade to Express Postage for a speedy delivery.

Step 3.
Once you checkout your socks will enter production where our graphic artists will get to work designing your socks.

Step 4.
You will be emailed a preview/proof to approve or make alterations – this will vary depending on the service type you have chosen, from 1-5 business days. This can take longer during peak periods such as Valentines Day or Mothers Day etc.

Step 5.
Once you approve your socks they will be printed and shipped the next business day.

WHAT DO BLACK AND NAVY SOCKS COST AN EXTRA $1

We put the socks through an extra process to ensure a deep black or navy colour is achieved, this offcourse takes time and materials to perform.

CAN I HAVE TEXT ON THE SOLE?

Yes, you can basically ask for anything you like, just pop any instructions in the area provided during the order.

DO YOU DO BULK ORDERS?

Yes, contact us for bulk order pricing.

WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?

Your order can be cancelled anytime before your order is physically made. Obviously this is because they are custom made and can’t be simply placed back onto a shelf!

WHY SHOULD I ADD MY MOBILE NUMBER?

Emails can end up in spam, along with an email notification to view and preview your proof we also send an SMS to let you know when its ready and this is the only time your number will be used.

CAN I CHANGE MY ORDER?

We are always happy to make changes to your design up until you approve and the order is manufactured.

WHAT PAYMENT OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE?

We accept Paypal, all major credit cards, Afterpay and Zip.

DO I NEED TO PAY FOR MORE THAN ONE FAST SERVICE (ONE DAY RUSH)?

Yes, if you need your order designed and produced fast then every separate design requires a fast service add-on. Essentially the Fast Service and Service+ add-on fee’s are to cover the after hours labour for our staff.

CAN I SEE WHAT THEY WILL LOOK LIKE BEFORE I ORDER?

No unfortunately, this is not an automated process, there are so-called AI previews out there but the results we feel are not up to scratch. One of our design team manually creates your artwork, this offcource takes a local Aussies time which isn’t free! You are welcome to make changes and we won’t move to manufacture until you approve the design.

DO YOU CHARGE TO RESEND AN ORDER?

We will always resend an order if there is an issue on our end or if Australia Post fails to deliver and it’s deemed lost. If you enter the wrong shipping address or fail to collect from the post office and its returned to us, we do expect you to cover the postage charges to resend the order.

WHAT IS THE PHOTO QUALITY WARNING ON MY PROOF?

We want your socks to look their best, so if we feel the quality isn’t quite right, we will warn you so that you have the opportunity to send us new photo’s free of charge.

WHY WERE MY BRIEFS SHIPPED SEPERATELY?

Socks and thongs are designed and manufactured in Brisbane, whereas our briefs are designed in Brisbane but manufactured in Melbourne, so rather than wait for the briefs, we ship your other items first.

WHAT IF I DON'T LIKE THE PREVIEW?

Not to yank our chain, but that rarely happens! If you wish to make changes, you are welcome to by replying to the approval email.

HOW DOES LOCAL PICKUP WORK?

Brisbane locals can collect their orders from Tingalpa. You will be sent an email when ready (Generally the business day after you approve your preview).

WHAT IS THE DESIGN QUEUE AND WHY DOES IT TAKE DAYS?

In order to create your design must be put the artwork together first. Unlike many of our competitors, this is performed locally and manually in Australia. We choose not to outsource not only to ensure the highest quality, but to also ensure your privacy is maintained especially when it comes to your photo’s.

As this is a manual process it does take time and as great as our designers are there are only so many hours in a day.

Remember, if you do need in a hurry, we have express options which jump the queue.

Because we manually create your order from designing to manufacturing this obviously take time and because not everyone needs them urgently we created three service types.

  1. Standard: 5 business days
  2. Standard Plus: 3 business days
  3. One Day Rush: (Socks Only) Same business day if ordered before 5pm

Proofs can be delivered anytime up until 9pm on the due date.

WHAT ARE YOUR BUSINESS HOURS?

We operate Mon – Fri, 8am – 9pm Brisbane Time. Public holidays are excluded from timings.

WHATS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ONE DAY RUSH AND EXPRESS POST?

Express Post is just for the Australia Post side of things, the time your order will spend between us and you in transit. For Express Post this is usually a next day delivery scenario – please check the Australia Post website for estimates and please understand that delays with Australia Post are out of our control.

(Socks Only) Our ONE DAY RUSH is guaranteed next day shipping (not delivery as this is out of our control). This basically means you jump to the top of the production queue where normally it can take up to 5 business days.

WHY DO YOU PROOF AND HOW DOES IT WORK?

We will always ask you to approve a proof before going to print, we do this so you get an idea of how the design will look and to make changes if you wish – also we are human and can occasionally make a mistake!

Your proof will be sent via email and SMS approximately 1 – 5 business days from the order date, depending on the level of service you chose. If you don’t receive an email its possible it has gone to spam, or you entered an incorrect email address.

HOW LONG DOES SHIPPING TAKE?

We ship from Brisbane, shipping times will vary depending on your location. Rural areas, Perth, Darwin etc… can take longer and it’s out of our control. We also have expediated shipping options via eParcel at the checkout.

(Socks Only) Our One Day Rush option or Next Day Postage is for those that require their order urgently. This option will guarantee next day Postage (not delivery as that is out of our control).

Orders must be in by 5pm for same day preview, otherwise it will be the next business day.

WHAT IS YOUR RETURN POLICY?

We have strict quality controls before shipping your order, however if you find a print or material defect you can contact us and we have it sorted out.

HOW MUCH IS SHIPPING?

We have two options from Australia Post, eParcel Tracked is $9.95 and eParcel Express Tracked is $14.95.

I PAID FOR EXPRESS POSTAGE AND DIDN'T RECEIVE IN TIME, CAN I GET A REFUND?

Unfortunately once we hand the order over to Australia Post it’s in their hands – our job is to design and produce your order in our promised time frame. On very rare occasions an express package can get delayed for any number of reasons and as part of their own terms and conditions this won’t warrant a refund unless declared lost. We will however do our best to keep on top of the situation and make sure your order is delivered as quick as possible.

HOW LONG DOES SHIPPING TAKE?

We ship from Brisbane, it really depends on your location.

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY 360-DEGREE DTG PRINTED?

There are two common ways to create custom socks.

  1. 99% of our competition use the flat sublimation method where the sock is laid flat, heat pressed, then flipped over and pressed again. This creates a join line down each side and white gaps when the socks are worn (areas where the ink didn’t penetrate) – Click here for more details
  2. DTG (direct to garment) 360-Degree printing involves the socks being loaded into a specialised printers where the design is printed directly onto the socks in one seamless pass. This process has no join lines and drastically reduces image tear or white lines through the print when worn.
WHAT IF THERE IS AN ISSUE WITH MY ORDER?

If you receive your order and its damaged or defective simply contact us and we will resolve it – we won’t let you waste your hard earned money!

WHAT ARE YOUR THONGS MADE OF?

We only use high-density materials, similar to that used by major brands available in Australia. They won’t flatten quickly like cheap promotional thongs, and we print directly onto the top of the natural rubber surface, not to a thin piece of material that you will also find on other custom thongs.

WHAT TYPE OF SOCKS ARE THEY?

The toe and heal areas are cotton to allow your feet to breathe. The main area of the sock is made from soft polyester and spandex as the sublimation printing process only adheres to man made substances.

WILL THE SOCKS FADE OR CRACK?”

We use a process called sublimation, effectively dying the ink deep into the material. They are socks so they will wear with pilling to be expected, however, you won’t feel the ink or any cracking over time.

WILL THE THONGS WEAR?

The thongs themselves wear well, as we have tested extensively. We treat them with a protective coating to preserve the print even longer, however will eventually start to wear, as will any thongs with a print, they are stood and walked on after all!. You can from time to time apply your own protective coating available at any super market or shoe store to extend the life of the print.

HOW DOES YOUR SIZING WORK?

Sock Sizing

When ordering you will be asked to provide a US/AU shoe size (Australia and the US share the same sizing), so pull of your shoe and simply enter a size!

Please note – When you receive your socks, we will mark the packages with a size sticker if you purchased multiple pairs unless they are all the same size to which we will leave blank.

Thong Sizing

I THINK I HAVE BEEN SENT THE WRONG SIZE?

Chances are you haven’t! It’s extremely rare that a sizing issue comes up when following the sizing chart, however, when it does, it’s usually because the sock size is being judged by its appearance in the packet without trying them on. The socks are extremely stretchy and forgiving. In saying this, we are only human and mistakes can happen, so jump on chat or flick us an email and we can double check as the digital design we have on file only fits one size so we can see what you have been sent.

SOME OF THE INK CAME OFF WHEN I OPENED THE PACKET, IS IT HARMFUL?

It’s not harmful, obviously, don’t eat it, but our inks are water-based and will wash off your hands quickly. Darker saturated colours such as black, navy and deep reds may have a bit of excess ink after curing, as the material can only hold so much ink. It will simply come off after the first wash, and you won’t notice a colour change in your socks as 99% of the ink is locked into the material.

HOW DO I WASH THE SOCKS?

Firstly always inside-out, delicate machine wash or preferably hand wash with cold or warm water and line dry. Avoid fabric softeners, dryer sheets and never tumble dry.

CAN I CHANGE THE TOE AREA COLOUR?

Unfortunately not, It’s a fixed colour of either black or grey. Currently its black but are converting over to grey in the future.
