I am so pleased to be writing yet another review of a personalised item – if you’ve read any of my other reviews, you will know they’re my favourite!
I am forever wearing odd socks. Every time I do washing, my machine seems to eat one so I end up being too lazy trying to match them and end up wearing whatever I can find.
I’m not a morning person, and I now work early everyday I simply do not have the time nor energy to be matching my socks. I’m all about that spontaneous sock life. So to wear a pair of fully matching socks, with my CAT on, it fills me with warm fuzzy joy.

When I started this collaboration, I took a look at the PrintsField website and I was so amused. Their items are admittedly quite niche – it’s all based around FUNKY personalised socks. You can get your family, food, your face or even your cat printed on to your socks. So that’s exactly what I did and the results were hilarious.
Too Much Choice…
It took me far too long to decide on which style I’d like. PrintsField have a really extensive range considering how niche their market is. They have loads of cute designs such as various food, hearts, sayings, and some really abstract patterns as well!
I ended up choosing the ‘candies’ design because I thought it was really cute (and I have such a sweet tooth) so I thought it was very me! There are nearly 20 different colours to choose from, I decided on mint because that’s how they were pictured and I like them to stand out.
I chose my cat Pogo because he is the most photogenic little thing and I have so many lovely photos of him! I didn’t have anything personalised to him so I thought it would be nice to include him and I knew I could get some nice photos of him next to the socks! 😛 (or so I thought, turned out he didn’t want to pose for the camera today)
When I received the product I actually couldn’t stop laughing – they are completely hilarious and I love wearing them. The material is 95% polyester and 5% spandex, so they are really comfortable and have a nice stretch to them – I’ve had so many comments on them already!
I took the photo I sent in of my cat on my iPhone, so I was unsure what the quality would be like but the cut and quality of the photo was really clean and not pixelated at all.
I ordered the ‘ankle socks’ and when they arrived they were a lot bigger than I had imagined. This was not a particularly big issue, as I have little size 4 feet (uk) so when I saw that they were one size fits all I did question whether they’d be too big. They do fit me and it wasn’t a massive deal but as this is an honest review, I feel it is necessary to add.
I only added one face (as I only have one cat) but you can add up to three faces on one pair which I probably would’ve taken advantage of if I had three cats 😛
PrintsField are a company based in Poland, and as I am UK based I was unsure as to how long they may take to be delivered. I placed my order on a Tuesday, and I received an email saying that my design had been completed on the Sunday. They were then shipped by the Thursday and I received them about a week later, which was earlier than I imagined because on the website it said they could be 2-4 weeks.
With this in mind, if you’re purchasing these for a gift, ensure you leave sufficient time for delivery as they are not based in the UK so delivery will inevitably take a little longer! I was very happy with the service though, and I was informed every time via email when the status of my order was updated and given a tracking number.
The price of the particular socks that I was sent were €18.99 which is around £16.94 in the UK (Sept ’19) so for a pair of socks, they are not the cheapest you can find but of course they are guaranteed to be a hilarious gift.
If you use my the discount code below, these would come down to £13.55 which considering the amount of effort the guys at Printsfield have to put in to produce these personalised products, I don’t think they would be too expensive for a nice gift.
My discount code for 20% OFF is ADIAGONALSTRIPE20 – you’re welcome!!
Overall, I am really happy with the product I received from Printsfield. I loved how friendly their service is and how I was kept updated throughout. The only thing I would comment on, as I said earlier, is that there is only one size. But if you don’t have tiny feet like me, it really shouldn’t be an issue!
It was a pleasure to work with Printsfield, and I hope to work with you again in the future!
