Inappropriate custom ugly christmas sweaters does not refer to sweaters that are offensive to others. They are sweaters that are deemed inappropriate because they aren't safe. They are a "little out there".
It's important not to get confused as there's a fine line. You may want something different and a little out there but it still needs to be fun and lighthearted. A few examples we have seen are reindeers that are getting up to no good and Santa that is flashing etc. So here are some tips to create the sweater in a lighthearted way:
Make it Clear that the purpose of the sweater is fun:
Don't go too heavy-if the sweater is fun, people will love it so think of something risque and then take it back a bit. Keep the design subtle so you'll have people guessing.
Choose a Bright Color
By choosing a bright color for the custom ugly christmas sweater, it will add to the fact that even though it may be "inappropriate", it's supposed to be light hearted and fun.
Add some Detail
Here is an example of a sweater we created. It's a tipsy reindeer. The reason why this one was such a success was down to the detail. Firstly, it was a bright red which looks great in both real life and on social media-it photographs really well. Secondly, the detail in the actual design captures the essence of the look we were going for.Look at the eyes and the drool. Both eyes are droopy with one enlarged and up close, you can even see some bloodshot marks. The drool is on the tongue and falling off making this an awesome custom ugly christmas sweater!
