2017, you win. This year, we experienced tremendous growth and some really exciting changes. We’ve continued to make this our top priority: delivering awesomely random socks to subscribers all over the world. We are now serving over 85 countries and just shipped out our 500,000th sock.
As we bring this crazy year to a close, we want to share some of our most notable and memorable moments of 2017.
1. New Office
The beginning of 2017 started off with a big move. We relocated to our new offices in Cabbagetown, ATL nearly tripling our fulfillment and work spaces. After a major renovation, we were able to turn an old and empty metal building into a warm and innovative new HQ.
2. New Opportunities
A big project of 2017 was launching our custom sock program. We were able to collaborate with so many cool companies, who share our love for good design and quality socks.
3. New Hires
This year, we’ve brought on seven new people to join our team. With growth, comes lots of new hires. We can’t wait to see what 2018 brings in terms of talent and adding more awesome people to our staff.
4. New Ventures
We also embarked on a new venture, sponsorship! This year we were the presenting sponsor of the Romp and Stomp 5K / Stomp and Chomp Festival that takes place right here in our own neighborhood! We created a custom sock for the event and every racer received a pair. It was great seeing all the runners in our socks and even better to support our little community here in the A.
5. New Milestones
In review, what a year it’s been. We are now shipping more socks than ever to over 85 countries around the world. In addition, our subscriber base has more than doubled since this time last year and for that, we are so grateful.
2018, you have a lot to live up to…but we’re ready for you! Cheers to new beginnings and to all our subscribers for joining us on this wild ride. Happy New Year from everyone here at Sock Fancy!
