Pixels To Print: Ugly Sweater Design




The holidays are right around the corner, which means we are officially in the homestretch…and you know what that means!  It’s time to prepare and start getting out your orders for holiday gifts and festive promos.   Have no fear though -  we’ve got the perfect products for you.  If you saw our latest Hot Item of the Week blog post, you would know that the ugly sweater designed products are back and ready to take on the holiday season.  What better way to rep your brand in *holiday fashion* than with a CUSTOM ugly sweater, ugly sweater socks, and even ugly sweater designed mask! 


The word “custom” opens up a whole world of possibilities when it comes to designing your ugly sweater items.  The great thing about them is that they can feature a seemingly endless about of elements and combinations. This gives you the ability to make a unique sweater design that can include whatever you might like.  Add in your logo or some of your brand elements to make it the perfect company giveaway! The best part though? We can do this for you! Send in your requests, and our design team can get to creating your very own unique ugly sweater design that can be applied to your product/s of choice.  


Before you get started on brainstorming all of your magical and *ugly* ideas, we’ve got a few tips to help you get started:



1)  Know your color limits


Our knit sweaters allow for up to 3 colors max in a design.  Prepare ahead of time with your color options so that there are no set backs with the design and production of your sweaters! Our socks and masks, however, have completely full color printing capabilities, so no need to worry about color limits with these items!



2)  Add brand elements to make your design unique


Choose from stock knit colors for your sweater, OR choose PMS matched colors to make your brand stand out even more.  PMS matching requires higher minimum orders and possibly longer production times though, so make sure to get your order in soon! Consider adding in particular brand elements to your design as well, like your logo, icons, or patterns! Of course, you can always stick with a more traditional ugly sweater design as well.



3)  Don’t get too crazy with the details


The ugly sweater is a process that involves actually knitting in your design, so extremely detailed elements don’t work as well in this situation! If there are too many details, pieces of your design may turn into blobs when knitted into the sweater.  Keep this in mind when choosing the elements that you want on your sweater.  Since our socks and masks are full sublimation, however, details are ok for these items.



4)  Prepare in advance!



The intricacy of ugly sweater designs takes time, which means that the production of them does as well. There is nothing worse than having a great idea for festive holiday promos but then not being able to get them in on time. Mark this on your to-do lists, your calendar, and set a reminder on your phone.  The sooner the better for these items!
