Custom Printed Hoodies
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW:
Hoodies are probably the most versatile shirt product on the market today in terms of customization. Seriously, there are beach hoodies, thick winter hoodies, pull-overs, zip-ups, mens styles, womens styles, fitness options, fashion options (short-sleeve hoodies, raglan sleeve hoodies) & more - not to mention all the different fabric options and quality levels for each style.
Hoodies are most in demand during spring, fall and winter, and can be layered to keep warm in mild weather, making them a great buy to get your brand or business the most exposure in seasonal weather.
So, how does a buyer choose the right hoodie for their printed shirt run?
THE CHOICE BETWEEN FASHION HOODIES AND PRACTICAL HOODIES:
A common theme in apparel buying is deciding whether your goal is an economy practical product, or mid-to-high-cost fashion product.
Practical products aren't as boxy or poor fitting as they used to be, and a basic hoodie from any major brand these days won't be a disappointment. There are also practical dry-fit hoodies that are great for small businesses (landscapers, carpenters, movers etc) who find themselves outdoors in fall or spring so for value you can't go wrong here.
On the fashion side of things, hoodies have more options than ever. If you're buying custom hoodies for a fashion line, for retail or resale, it's important to look through the available hoodie options and make your choice based on what you and your customers (or employees) want. There are many fitness styles and athletic leisure options that are becoming very popular.
SIMPLE TIPS ON ORDERING CUSTOMIZING YOUR HOODED SWEATERS:
- When ordering zip-ups, plan your artwork to be justified to the left chest. The zipper will get in the way of a full front print
- Know your hoodie weight, if you're looking for a lightweight fabric make sure you're not ordering thick winter option
- Hoodies can be added to other product orders in cases where you might not your suppliers minimum order as long as the artwork stays the same as your other products
- If you're reselling and your audience has an interest in them, hoodies can be sold for 60$+ making them one of the highest margin products available
THE BOTTOM LINE:
Customized hoodies are the most versatile custom printed shirt because they come in so many options. Know your application - deep winter, fashion, economy, athletic wear, etc to make the best choice possible
