Latitude 38 Designs has introduced a fun line of Advent T-shirts to help customers count down to and get ready for Christmas while decorating a T-shirt they can wear up to and on the holiday.
“Advent calendars are a popular way for both kids and adults to generate some excitement for the Christmas holiday while having a visual reminder of how many days away it is,” said Lisa A. DeNiro, president of Latitude 38 Designs. “Rather than just opening up doors and getting token treats, we came up with a creative Advent activity that kids can do every day, and get a cute, custom-colored T-shirt to wear in the process.”
The Advent T-shirts are titled “Countdown to Christmas” and are printed with 25 black-and-white Christmas images for coloring, which are numbered and laid out in a grid much like a calendar. Each shirt comes with six fabric markers for coloring, and additional markers are sold separately for those wanting extra color choices. There are two designs available so customers can choose a shirt with either religious or secular Christmas images. The shirts are made of 100% pre-shrunk comfortable cotton in unisex sizing from youth medium to adult XL. Children should start coloring one image each day on December 1, and by the 25th, will have the shirt completely colored.
“Kids – and parents – will have fun coloring in the Christmas images each day leading up until Christmas and wearing this customized Christmas garment,” said DeNiro. “Kids of all ages love to color, and this is something they can color and wear to show off their handiwork.”
Advent T-shirts are the perfect addition to the product mix at specialty retail outlets such as card and gift shops, arts-and-crafts retailers, toy stores and educational product stores. Retail pricing starts at $24.95; dealer and distributor pricing is available starting at 12 units.
Latitude 38 Designs donates a portion of the proceeds from the sale of all Advent T-shirts to Toys for Tots to aid the charity in its mission to bring hope to less fortunate children during the holidays.
Latitude 38 Designs is the maker of unique and fun T-shirt designs for a variety of interests.
