☀ rush crush sponsor spotlight ~ catching up with Sockprints & Pillowprintz! ☀

SOCKPRINTS is a long time friend and partner of the sorority sugar blog and a current Rush Crush Sponsor! I recently had a chance to catch up with them and ask about what’s new and exciting with their greek company!

SS: What’s the latest at Sockprints?

S&P: So many exciting things are going on at Sockprints! We had a busy summer working with chapters to design and create personalized socks for Recruitment and Bid Day. Sockprints offers quantity discounts for chapter purchases making custom socks the perfect finishing touch to event themes and outfits. Our socks were featured at a variety of National Conventions this summer and can be found on some National Sorority online stores!

As Reveal approaches we’re seeing a surge in orders for BIG and LITTLE socks and custom printed pillowcases. They make great gifts for Big/Little week and reveal. Also new to Sockprints is the addition of custom printed fraternity socks. Look for men’s sport crew socks and dress socks printed with a fraternity crest. These will be featured on our SockprintsOnEtsy shop. Great for a fraternity boyfriend!

SS: How exactly can sisters customize their sorority socks?

S&P: We have two online options for ordering custom sorority socks! Our SockprintsOnEtsy store features sorority designs ready to be personalized with a name, initials, or your chapter name. We also have a website: Sockprints for sisters who want to design their own unique, custom socks. Select a sock style, choose from a variety of sorority designs and personalize each pair. As an official licensed vendor for all 26 NPC groups, all of our designs have been pre-approved.

SS: Do you have any favorite new sock designs?

S&P: Some of our new favorite designs are the sorority monogram socks, Americana sorority letters, and full-print sorority word art socks. Our full-print sorority word art socks are available on 1⁄2 cushion no-show socks. They’re perfect to wear around the sorority house, or to wear to the gym. The monograms and Americana sorority letters look great on all our sock options. These styles are favorites of our customers too!

SS: Can you tell me about your NEW Pillowprintz shop?

S&P: Our Pillowprintz shop came about after having success printing personalized sorority socks! We thought, “How fun would custom pillowcases be?” and voilà, Pillowprintz was created to highlight our pillowcase products. We’re always adding fresh new designs ready to be personalized. Some designs are exclusive for our sorority pillowcases and others match our socks.

While the printing process allows us to print with millions of colors, we’ve had fun printing a black and white pillowcase for a DIY craft project idea. Using fabric markers purchased at a craft store, our pillowcases can be colored in to match your sorority or bedroom colors. This craft project is great for Big and Little sisters, chapter retreats, and they make great gifts!

SS: What’s new on the horizon for 2015?

S&P: We are adding a new sock silhouette that allow for a pattern to be fully print all over the socks. We look forward to showcasing this sock with lots of ideas including photo collages and wild & crazy patterns. It’s a new concept and we are really excited about it!

Look for Sockprints and Pillowprintz in more retail outlets in 2015! We sell to university bookstores and Greek shops across the country. If you don’t see us at your local retail store, ask the manager to carry our socks and pillowcases!

So its been about a week and a half since my 1st bid day on the active side. I have met a girl that is perfect. She is the perfect little. Only problem, I know 3 other girls that think they are the perfect match. Can you help me calm my nerves or ideas on ways to see if we are a good match?

For your future happiness, it’s really important to pick a Little who is a compatible match. Looking for qualities that go beyond "she’s cool" or "she’s fun" will make for a healthier long term relationship. I have a post of things to think about when you are ranking your choices. (Or for picking one choice, depending on how your chapter does it.)

Considering you future Little’s character, reliability, honesty and loyalty are all excellent things to evaluate. If your head and heart lead you to one special new member ~ then trust your instincts and take the plunge! xoxo ;)

• How to Pick a Little ~ 23 Things to Consider

its the week before spoils week and im trying to meet girls to be my future big. my rho gam is in my sorority and has never had a little, although shes a senior. im worried that il only have her as a big for this year even tho we are really close. should i try meeting more sophomore girls this week?

Asked by
sequinedbowsandpeonies

I would say, do both! If you have a special connection with a senior sister, it’s totally Ok! Many members have fantastic relationships with their senior Bigs. Don’t rule her out. But in case you need several choices, you can go ahead and get to know a few other younger sisters too. It’s always good to have a back up plan, just in case.

In the end, if your heart leads you to your senior friend, then by all means write her down as your #1 pick. Better to have one amazing collegiate year together as big/little, than a luke warm partnership with someone else. You only live once! xoxo ;)
