What It Means to Connect
Why do people wear shirts and hats (and anything else you can think of) emblazoned with their favorite sports team? Easy — to feel like they belong and to show everyone a little piece of who they are.
It’s not just for big-name sports teams. That concept is true for your business, your event, or your fundraiser — when they’re excited about where they work, what they participate in or what they support, they want to show it.
I see examples of this every day in my work with all kinds of people who want custom socks and custom masks to support something they care about. It’s a way to show belonging and unity — and fun, of course!
What sorts of giveaways or promotional items have you used to connect with your group, team, charity, or business?
A Sock-Sess Story
St. Crispin’s Cycling Socks
We made our first cycling socks for St. Crispin’s Day Massacre! It was so fun to work with Mike, the organizer, to create the design that fits the name and feel of the race.
While they have medallions for the top finishers, each rider gets their very own pair of custom cycling socks!
Sock of the Month
Professional Women Controllers
To say I love Professional Women Controllers (PWC) and what they do is an understatement! PWC is an organization that helps attract women to the air traffic controller profession and create a balanced workforce that better reflects actual demographics. They’re also a resource for training, development and encouragement for women air traffic controllers.
But the amazing work they do is not the only reason they win Sock of the Month! Just take a look at their sock design! It’s one of my favorites we’ve ever done. They’ll give these socks as gifts to every member at their upcoming annual convention.
I could not be more excited to support this wonderful organization, and I hope they absolutely love their socks! The best part of all of this is that they were referred to me by a fellow woman-owned business — I love, love, love women supporting women!
