Paw-sitively Shaping Lives with Pets For Vets
There's lots to be thankful for this season. Friends, family, and especially our nation's heroes. When searching for organizations for the sockprints Giving Program, there was no doubt that Pets For Vets, a non-profit helping veterans and saving pets, was a contender.
Today, we're sitting down with one of sockprints Co-Founders, Jann, to dig deep on the company's involvement. Find out more information and our inspiration behind this amazing cause.
3 Ways to Get Involved for Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Did you know that October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month? (Think pink!) Though spreading awareness is a year-round initiative, we’ve compiled a few extra ways to get involved during this special pink-filled month.
Personalized Sport Socks for Players & Parents
It all started on the sidelines of a soccer field. Back in 2009, sockprints’ Co-Founders, Hayley and Jann, were talking at their daughters’ club soccer game when the question, “Can you print on socks?” popped up. Teaming up, Hayley and Jann worked endlessly to find a way to create memorable, one-of-a-kind sport socks for their daughters’ soccer team. After many trial and errors, they were able to successfully answer that question, thus starting the beginning of a great partnership.
Any good team is familiar with the phrase “teamwork makes the dream work.” To help build those bonds of trust while simultaneously fostering unique memories, we created a bunch of new custom printed socks for both the players and parents. Get excited as we release our newest sockprints Spotlight collection: fall sport socks!
Behind the Seams: (Throw)Back to School Edition
Summer, you’ve been good to us, but it’s time to get back into the swing of things. As universities across the country start fall classes, we’re reminded of the good ol’ college days filled with studying at the library, tailgating at football games, and commuting to campus.
For some of the sockprints family, a huge part of their college experience was being a part of a sorority. Each found a space that truly reflected a “home away from home.” To commemorate those cherished memories, we are throwing it back (to school) with a quick spotlight on some of the team’s sororities.
Triathlon Across America with Eric Byrnes & sockprints
Take it from Eric Byrnes, it’s time to get outside and play! With youth activity at an all time low, sockprints has partnered with the non-profit organization, Let Them Play Foundation, to sponsor their project, Triathlon Across America. In a span of three months, this event will cover 3000+ miles of swimming, biking, and running, in hopes to motivate kids to get active and bring awareness to the dwindling amounts of Physical Education programs in public schools across the country.
As fellow athletes and supporters of youth sports, this project really hits home for the sockprints family. To honor the organization’s ongoing efforts to provide grants to community and nationwide programs, we’re donating a portion of future purchases to the Let Them Play Foundation. Learn more about the project, organization, and upcoming events below.
Sockprints Gives Back with Golf Socks
Believe it or not, we have a soft spot for all things golf. (Sockprints staff members pretty much grew up with the sport!)

In honor of sockprints’ first charitable event, we’re dedicating this month’s sockprints Spotlight to the cause and introducing our fun assortment of golf socks.
