It's straight forward to incorporate a christmas stocking into a custom ugly christmas sweater design if the christmas stocking is part of the design and part of the sweater. The difficulty arises if the christmas stocking needs to be in 3D form-ie, something can be placed inside the stocking.
We've been making 3D sweaters for years so making custom ugly christmas sweaters with a christmas stocking is certainly achievable (we've certainly made some here before) but it will need extra time in the production process. The reason for this is that it will depend on a number of things such as size, shape, material etc so here are a few tips to keep in mind:
As above, if you're opting for a 3D christmas stocking on your custom ugly christmas sweater, then you need to order early. The sample phase will take normal than longer as a couple of different samples for the stocking part is needed so allow extra time, it's not something that can or should be rushed.
Choose a different color to the sweater
We think it's best to choose a different color for the christmas stocking than the sweater but obviously this part will depend on what you need for your specific design. As the stocking is 3D, a different color will not only add to that but it will make it pop and it will be a stand out feature on the sweater.
Opt for something on the christmas stocking
It makes sense to use the christmas stocking as a marketing tool. Think about it. A 3D christmas stocking on a custom ugly christmas sweater? Everyone will look at it so don't let that opportunity go to waste. Put a company logo or something in line with your marketing campaign on the stocking. It's a great advertising tool!
