Custom Hoodies for Everyone

Custom hoodies are one of the most popular custom printed clothing items because they are highly functional, especially in places where it is naturally cool or cold most of the year. Additionally, hoodies are the perfect tool for the workout community. Custom hoodies are consistently worn by people who exercise and they are often used in gyms during work-outs.

The Benefits of Printing on Hoodies

The main benefit of custom printing on hoodies is that everyone likes hoodies, and you can wear a hoodie almost anywhere. Adding your personal design onto a custom hoodie enhances your personal brand.

From a commercial point of view, it makes complete sense to invest in custom hoodies because these are useful for so many different people, not just teens or young adults who want casual wear.

People who are engaged in fitness should definitely be your target market as they tend to spend on clothes specifically for exercise, fitness or athletic activities.

But what about the cost of the hoodie? Aren’t hoodies a lot more expensive than regular shirts? Not at all! Regular, lightweight hoodies cost about the same as regular cotton t-shirts.

If you want to get more than just a typical type of hoodie, you should purchase it from a custom hoodie website. There will be multiple material selections and you can use their free design tool to custom print your hoodies.

Kinds of Hoodies You Can Print On

Hoodies differ by the type of fabric used to make them. The following are the most common types of hoodies on the market, and the advantages they provide to regular consumers who might be interested in reselling or marketing their own custom printed hoodies.

Basic hoodies – Basic hoodies are precisely as they are named. The fabric is lighter, and they are designed for more casual wear than for body heat regulation.

This is the cheapest type of hoodie and the most popular with people who market their own designs, because they can get a really good price if bulk ordered from a custom hoodie website.

The main advantage of printing on basic hoodies is you won’t have to spend a lot, and if you do order more than a handful, you get them even cheaper, increasing your ROI.

Women’s hoodies – By default, regular, lightweight hoodies that are “unisex” are actually designed for male bodies because these are looser and have a squarer shape.

If you want something that is specifically for women, we would suggest opting for women’s hoodies instead. Women’s hoodies have cool and light fabrics, come in a variety of bright colors and are sewn to complement the natural shape of a woman’s body. The hoodie will follow the contour of the body and enhance the wearer’s appearance.

Just like regular, lightweight hoodies, women’s hoodies are cheaper by the dozen, come in so many great colors, and are definitely an excellent choice if you want to design hoodies for promotions, events, and other occasions that require custom printed wear.

Heavy duty hoodies – Heavy duty hoodies are heavier, and the thickness of the fabric is much more than typical hoodies.

University hoodies with school logos or pennants are usually heavy duty hoodies and can easily double as athletic wear or fitness apparel.

However, while heavy duty hoodies can definitely help with keeping the wearer’s body temperature up, it may not be designed to deal with moisture, which is very important while working out. If you need a durable hoodie, this type of hoodie is the way to go!

Lightweight athletic hoodies – At first sight, lightweight athletic hoodies look a lot like regular hoodies, but they are made to be different. Lightweight, athletic hoodies are actually made to wick away sweat from the surface of the skin, and this helps with thermoregulation.

Many heavy-duty hoodies do not have this ability because they are meant mainly to shield the wearer from cool/cold temperatures. Lightweight athletic hoodies are meant to be worn right next to the skin.

High absorbency is the key price factor for the athletic hoodie. The price point of lightweight athletic hoodies are not much more than heavy duty hoodies. In fact, many heavy-duty hoodies can be more expensive because they are thicker than an athletic custom hoodie.

High performance hoodies – High performance hoodies are premium apparel that you can customize with your own design. These hoodies are lightweight, highly absorbent and are made for athletic activity. They are specifically made for performance activities.

Two features stand out with high performance hoodies: 1) they wick away sweat quickly and are awesome for long periods of wear and 2) they keep the wearer cool because the thermal exchange between the environment and the body improves when the hoodie is built to handle continuous movement.

As for the price point, high performance hoodies tend to be more expensive as a result of their performance benefits.

Summary:

Custom hoodies are an outstanding personal investment. They come in all different styles and weights. This highly functional garment will provide you with tremendous use. Customize your hoodie and you will have a perfect tool to promote your personal brand while enjoying the hoodies functional benefits.
