A Christmas graphic tee is a piece of merchandise sold in select retailers across the country, typically in the Christmas timeframe.
The logo on a Christmas graphic tee is generally a single horizontal line that appears in red, white, or blue.
Each one is a unique design, so you’ll never know exactly what color is in your particular tees.
While this can be a fun way to commemorate a particular season, it can also be confusing if you’re not familiar with each logo and its relationship to the logo in the past.
“You have to know the history and the history of the logo to see the difference between the two,” said Mark Gorman, a marketing expert at The Pinstripes Group.
“That’s why we need to create an understanding of where each logo comes from.”
How to recognize a Christmas logoThe simplest way to identify a Christmas graphics tee is to use the word “Christmas” at the top of the design, as shown in the graphic above.
A logo can be more complicated to recognize if it has multiple letters and symbols, such as a cross.
You can’t just look at the word Christmas, though, as some graphic teedters use the letters S, M, N, X, and O to distinguish between the designs.
As an example, a logo that looks like a cross would be “Christmas cross,” according to Gorman.
But what about other symbols, like stars or Christmas trees?
They can also indicate different designs.
If the letters are not visible, it means that the design is an alternate design that was used before the Christmas logo.
“It’s a little more complicated because they have a lot of symbols in the middle,” Gorman said.
What to look forIf you’re confused about which design is which, there are a few things to look out for.
If the lettering is not visible or it has a cross, it indicates that the logo is an alternative design.
For example, if the letters X, O, and C are used, the design would be an alternate Christmas tree.
When the letter X is not present, it’s not a Christmas tree and you can use a cross to indicate a Christmas symbol.
There are a number of ways to identify Christmas graphics tees that have multiple symbols in them.
Here’s how: For a Christmas tees featuring multiple letters, there should be a cross with the words “Sleek and cool” or “Merry Christmas” at its top.
