All you need to know about Mens Hoodies

About pod hoodies

A hoodie is a comfortable, soft, hooded sweatshirt that you can wear inside as well as outside. A casual wear that is popular among teens and young adults or for those who often engage in outdoor physical activities, for example, skating, hiking, running etc.

Printseekers offer multiple types of custom hoodies. The unisex variant is a classic that will fit everyone fine, while the women’s model has a bit different, more pronounced shape. Lastly, the zoodie, also called the zipper hoodie or zip up hoodie, features a zipper for easier putting on and off, but otherwise it is similar to the other unisex hoodie. These are the models displayed on our website, if you are interested in different hoodies, let us know!  

Hoodie technical parameters

Our print on demand hoodies are made from a cotton and polyester blend (80% cotton, 20% polyester). The material has a weight of 280g / m2, which is premium in terms of suitability for printing and overall quality. Cotton is a very skin friendly material that lets your skin breathe at all times, while polyester increases durability and other technical properties.

All models have nice kangaroo pockets that are soft to the touch and really comfortable. Hoodies are available in more than sixty colors which allows you to sell personalized hoodies according to your business needs.

The sizes for unisex hoodies are XS to 3XL; women's hoodie options are XS to XXL, and zipper hoodies range from XS to 5XL. A size guide is available for all products. All of these models are well suited to be sold as oversized hoodies, a popular trend.

Printseekers pod hoodies can be customized using three methods - DTG, DTF and embroidery. DTG (direct-to-garment) printing is the industry standard. It is similar to printing on paper & uses ink jet technology - the ink is sprayed on the clothing. Perfect for most situations! DTF (direct-to-film) printing means that the design is printed on a special film, which is then transferred on to the garment. It uses the same printers & inks as DTG, however, the film provides better color reproduction, and it can be placed anywhere on the apparel, including inside - works fine for printed labels.

Embroidery is a different customization method altogether. A design gets stitched on, rather than printed on the fabric. The overall process is more complex and expensive than printing, so it is usually used on small areas and with small designs, such as a logo on a breast pocket. Note that Printseekers offer to use embroidery on a limited area - contact us for more information!

Why sell custom hoodies

Hoodies in general have a high demand in the market - a great apparel for many occasions, especially when the weather is not so warm and pleasant. From rap enthusiasts to urban sports people, there is an audience. Just like T-shirts, hooded sweatshirts are always in style, and it helps that they are one of the few pieces of clothing that look good on anyone, no matter their size or body type.

Hoodies are popular in the relaxed wear movement, where people wear loose, oversized clothing both for comfort and as a fashion statement. These don't have to be unique models, simply offering a normal hoodie a size above the usual size will count as oversized. This trend is only growing more popular, so here's your chance to capitalize on it!

Lastly, hoodies are popular merch products, whether for musicians, streamers, fitness gurus or anyone else with a decent following. If you want walking advertisements everywhere and fine profit per sale to support your endeavours - go for hoodies!

Design ideas for hoodies

Almost anything can look great on hoodies, however, transparent elements (designs without straight borders) are an especially good choice for hooded sweatshirts and apparel in general. These include patterns, quotes of all kinds, and designs where the background is cut out, leaving only the subject itself. Honestly, you can put almost anything on a hoodie!

In contrast to home decor, a hoodie will be seen by many more people, so they are often used as a loudspeaker for different statements and a reflection of wearer's personality. It is worth noting that print area on hoodies is not that huge, especially when compared to full size wall art. Due to this, simple designs with few details work best - and passers-by will have enough time to pick up the full meaning of the design.

There is no limit to what designs you can put on a hoodie, but it has to be said that urban style designs look especially great on hoodies. Also, people who enjoy rock, metal, and hip-hop music, are keen hoodie enthusiasts, so you can try to play with designs of their taste (learn what style they prefer or what music bands they listen to). If you're a musician doing merch - great, you're halfway there!

As for colors, the classics never go out of style - choose black, gray or navy hoodie color, if you are not sure what looks best. Those are neutral colors that always have a good demand in the market.
