EDIT: We’ve just launched Comforters and Socks. Read on to find out how to add them to your Redbubble shop. And check out our Marketing Guide for a socks design template and tips on how to promote our newest products.
We’ve got two brand new products to add to your Redbubble shop. We’re launching Comforters and Socks in the next few weeks. Customers won’t be able to purchase them yet, but they’re in the uploader now so you can add them to your shop before they launch. Below you’ll find product information and the lowdown on how to enable our latest products.

About Comforters and Socks
Socks are made from a super soft and stretchy knit with a reinforced toe and heel, and extra cushioning in the sole. They’re 75% polyester, 22% nylon, 3% elastane and machine washable.
They’re printed using a seamless 360 printing process. Google ‘seamless 360 sock printing’ for an idea of how it works. It’s pretty neat. The printing process also allows the ink to penetrate the yarn, avoiding white lines and print distortion, so your designs will look great even when stretched.
Socks come in one size which has four different names because universal sock size naming isn’t a thing. They’re equivalent to:
Men’s US size 3.5 – 12
Women’s US size 5 – 14
UK size 4 – 11.5
EU size 36 – 46
Socks are a ‘crew’ style. They’re stretchy when worn, but if you want to get a sense of how long they are, here are the length dimensions:
Heel/ankle-to-cuff = 18.5cm
Toe-to-heel/ankle = 16.5 cm
Depending on your geography and how many grandchildren you have, Comforters are also known as a bedspreads, quilts, coverlets or eiderdowns. They’re the extra cozy layer you need on cold nights. Comforters are made of 100% polyester fabric with a 3/4 inch (2cm) polyester filling, and double square quilted pattern. They’re also machine washable so you can put them in with your socks.
Your art is printed in vivid, full color on the front, and the back of the Comforter is white. They’re available in five sizes – Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen and King.

Adding Comforters and Socks to Your Shop
You’ll find Comforters grouped with Duvets and Shower Curtains in the uploader. To enable them for sale, click on the Shower Curtain image, click the tick icon for ‘Availability and Markup’, tick the box for Comforters and apply changes.
Socks have their own tile so they’re easy to find in the uploader. Simply scroll down to the tile, click ‘enable’ and save your changes.
You won’t be able to bulk enable our new products (via the Manage Portfolio page) until we officially launch. If you want to enable any existing designs, you’ll need to do this individually for now, so you may want to focus on your top sellers or personal faves first.
We’ll be launching our latest products in the next few weeks, just in time for cooler weather, so now is a great time to add any new designs you’ve been working on. And while you’re adding your designs, don’t forget to check your tags to make sure people can find your work in Redbubble’s search. Read our post on The Art of Tagging on Redbubble for more hints and tips.
