Makers of ugly Christmas sweaters are crafting ways to attract more customers. Without a little ingenuity and creativity, they would just be like any other ugly Christmas makers in the industry. One of the companies that made it to the news this season is the online shop at UglyChristmasSweater.com. What makes the company different from the rest of the companies is that it offers “create-your-own-sweater” allowing their customers to design their own ugly sweater and even include text or photos of their liking. With all the mass produced ugly sweaters during Christmas season, you can be sure that you will stand out during Christmas parties knowing that you are wearing a unique ugly sweater like no one else.
Getting your very own customized ugly Christmas sweater is easy. All you have to do is visit the maker’s online shop at UglyChristmasSweater.com and click the “create your own sweater” tab on the site. You will be directed to a page with a basic sweater template with the usual Christmas symbols on it such as reindeers, snowflakes and Christmas trees. You can add text of up to 7 words or pictures and logo. After that, pick your size, choose your preferred color and other similar specifics then pay the corresponding amount of $99.99. All sweaters made by this online seller are handmade. The orders will be forwarded to China to be handcrafted by expert knitters and after 10 days, your ugly Christmas sweater will be sent to your address. If you want to lower down the cost, order a minimum of 250 sweaters or more and you will get each piece at $30.
Cofounder Fred Hajjar said that the reinvention of ugly Christmas sweater is necessary for their company in order to compete with mass retailers like Wal-Mart, Macy’s, J.C. Penney and other popular distributors. The company gained $5million worth of sweaters last year and they intend to increase this season by giving their products a fresh and unique twist. To place your orders, visit their website at UglyChristmasSweater.com and enjoy your one of a kind ugly sweater this holiday season.
