EEk!
I have been looking for some socks with guinea pigs on ever since I got my piggies!

So, I have found a company in the USA that will make them - with any design on and either lots of little pigs on or one larger one :))

BUT..........

There is a 12 pair min order plus shipping 8...

Is there anyone who would be interested in getting a pair if I ordered some in? We can all put in designs (was thinking cute funny ones as opposed to actual piggy looking ones) and choose one we like? If there are enough people, then we could always buy in more OR, if any1 on here is thinking about selling them in their shop, then it would be a great op as I'm sure they would sell really well!

What do you all think?

The socks are about $6 each (about £3.80) plus a share of the shipping. - so not really expensive?

Have you looked in Primark? Some people have got guinea pig PJs and tops in there. Also, maybe you could find a company in the UK who will personalise clothing? There are loads that do personalised hoodies, t-shirts etc...maybe they'd do socks if you asked?

No way! Really? In primark? OO, wonder if they will still have some next week :))
I have ask about ten UK companies so far that make socks but I had no luck. I have a couple more to try but this is the first one that said yes. The problem is that unlike the other clothing, the socks stretch so the pattern has to be woven in - not printed onto it. I spoke to a couple of printers who can even print on G-strings! lol! But not socks :red.

Yeah, thanks guys!

Well if any of you want to think about designs? Not sure if anyone on this site has a design they have done because otherwise I don't want to pinch one of google images and be done for copywright, lol. Any ideas?
