If you're incorporating a gingerbread man into a custom ugly christmas sweater design, there are a number of things to keep in mind. Here are a few tips below:
Outline or Full Design?
Like other characters and mascots, the gingerbread man can appear on the custom ugly christmas sweater as an outline or a full design. This means that the gingerbread man can either appear in detail on the sweater with a variety of colors included or an outline which would include features on the gingerbread man and one color only.
Position of the Gingerbread Man
If you're opting for the outline only, then we would suggest a band of gingerbread men. This can appear anywhere on the sweater but the popular position would be either below neckline or above hemline or both. While the outline is one color , you can select that one is white, the next one is red etc.
If the gingerbread man is a full design then he should be the middle of the front of the sweater so that every aspect can be seen. The gingerbread man can be holding something (candy cane , something related to a campaign , logo etc).
Color of the Gingerbread Man
Just like when selecting the color of a sweater, the color of a gingerbread man can be any color you like but make sure it works with your sweater color selection. Don't go too dark brown if the gingerbread man has features and buttons on the design as this will get lost. Our suggestion would be to go for a lighter brown on a red, green or black sweater.
