How to make your own custom Christmas Jumper

August 07, 2019

Are you thinking of creating your own custom Christmas Jumper for 2019?

If you're thinking of creating a custom Christmas Jumper for your brand, charity, club or organisation we have a checklist below.

1. Knitted or Sweatshirt?

The first decision is whether it's a knitted Christmas Jumper or a sweatshirt.  Almost everyone prefers a knitted Christmas Jumper so generally the advice is to go for a knitted Christmas Jumper.  Knitted looks much better and design can go anywhere (on the front, back and sleeves).  The only real reason to go for a sweatshirt is if you're making less than 100 (the minimum order quantity for knitted Christmas Jumpers is 100 units)

2. Creating a Design

This is the fun bit - you can go completely original when making your own custom Christmas Jumpers.  You can go Fairisle (lots of rows like the Ironman Christmas Jumper above), you can do a high impact logo or theme, you can tell your story in Christmas Jumper form. 

Designs can be created in any software program you like (illustrator, photoshop, etc.) - you just need to send through the design in PDF and we our knitting technicians can create a pattern.  We also have a design team that can help create a design for you, no problem.

Below we have some included a few examples of custom Christmas Jumpers we love.

3. Decide how many you need (and what sizes you need them in)

The minimum for custom knit sweaters is just 100.  You can mix sizes within that 100 (eg. 30 small, 25 medium, 27 Large, 18 X-Large).  The most common order volume is 250.  Every year we get lots and lots of requests for additional orders as the CEO wants a few or staff want one or whatever.  We always recommend you order a few extra.

4. Grab a coffee and relax

Once you place the order, the process is painless.  We make the first Custom Christmas Jumper for you and send you an image to confirm it matches the design and you're thrilled with it.  This is when you start to get super excited.  Once you're happy we go into bulk production and create your awesome Christmas Jumpers.  We deliver the jumpers right to your door, no hassle.
