Are you looking for a unique and personalized hoodie? Custom hoodies are a great way to showcase your personal style, promote your business or organization, or create a special gift. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to order custom hoodies.

Prepare your design

Ai or PNG works best for us to make sure we have a high-quality version of your artwork when creating your mockup. We also accept PDF, PNG, and JPEG files.

 

What if I can’t design my own artwork?

 

We’re here to help! Here’s how:

 

Get a pen and paper and sketch your idea for us. It doesn’t have to be perfectly drawn, the purpose of the sketch is for us to get a good understanding of how you want your design to turn out instead of blindly guessing what you want, and would save us time going back and forth with revisions.

Material

 

Cotton is the most common material used for custom hoodies. It's breathable, soft, and comfortable to wear. Cotton hoodies are also easy to care for and can be machine washed and dried.

Polyester is a synthetic material that is lightweight, durable, and quick-drying. It's also wrinkle-resistant and can be used in a blend with cotton to create a hoodie that is both comfortable and long-lasting.

Fleece is a soft and warm material that's perfect for colder weather. It's also breathable and moisture-wicking, which makes it great for outdoor activities.

Spandex is a synthetic material that's stretchy and flexible. It's often used in a blend with cotton or polyester to create a hoodie that's comfortable and easy to move in.

Organic cotton is a natural and sustainable option. This type of cotton is grown without the use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides.

Recycled polyester is a sustainable option that uses less energy and water to produce than traditional polyester. It also helps reduce waste in landfills.

When choosing a material, it's important to consider the design you want, the number of hoodies you want to order, and the look you want to achieve. 

 

Measurement type

 

When ordering custom hoodies, it's important to understand the difference in sizing between different regions, such as Korea, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Here are a few key differences to keep in mind:

 

Korean sizing: Korean sizes tend to run smaller than American sizes. A Korean medium is roughly equivalent to an American small. Additionally, Korean sizes often come with additional measurements, such as the shoulder width, to ensure a better fit.

Japanese sizing: Japanese sizes also tend to run smaller than American sizes, with a Japanese medium being roughly equivalent to an American small. Additionally, Japanese sizes often come in "free size" which is a one-size-fits-all.

 

UK sizing: UK sizes tend to run larger than American sizes, with a UK medium being roughly equivalent to an American large. Additionally, UK sizes may also come with additional measurements, such as chest and waist measurements, to ensure a better fit.

 

US sizing: American sizes are the standard sizes that most of countries use.

 

It's important to keep these differences in mind when ordering custom hoodies and to consult our sizing chart to ensure you get the right size.

 

It's also important to mention that there are variations within each country, when it comes to sizing, brand to brand, and even within the same brand depending on the style, it's always best to consult the sizing chart, and if possible to check the measurements of a similar item you already own.

 

Printing method

Screen printing: This is one of the most popular methods for custom hoodies. It involves creating stencils of the design and using ink to press the design onto the hoodie. This method is best for large quantities and designs with limited colors.

Embroidery: This method involves using thread to stitch the design onto the hoodie. This method is best for designs with limited colors and is a great way to create a more professional and polished look.

Sublimation printing: This method involves using heat to transfer the design onto the hoodie. This method is best for designs with multiple colors and is a great way to create a vibrant and eye-catching design.

Vinyl printing: This method involves using heat to transfer a vinyl design onto the hoodie. This method is great for designs with limited colors and is a great way to create a more professional and polished look.

When choosing a printing method, it's important to consider the design you want, the number of hoodies you want to order, and the look you want to achieve.

 

Custom hoodies are a great way to make a statement, promote your business or organization, or create a special gift. With a little bit of research and attention to detail, ordering custom hoodies online can be a great way to get a hoodie that is tailored to your unique needs and preferences.
