Hoodie has a variety of possible print locations and can accommodate various print methods, but it does come with some restrictions and potential issues. Like so many other things, the rule of thumb is keep it simple. Better still, keep it classy. First let’s looks at the print areas, then get into the methods and issues:
Hoodie print areas
While hoodies offer all the print areas of a T-shirt and then some, there are some restrictions to be aware of. Below is a graphic showing the standard print locations along with a few common alternatives. Remember, this is a general guide. If you have any special requests or crazy ideas, we can most likely make it happen. Try us.
Hoodie printing restrictions
On zipper hoodies, printing across the front is a no-go. There are ways to do it but even if you get it right, there tends to be a gap or a globby ink deposit. No one wants that. The exception to this rule involves:
• Artwork created with a gap in mind for the zipper and measured to be in the center (spaced out letters, for example).
• Hoodie style with something called a “kissing zipper” which has two thin flaps of material that cover the metal.
• A printer who uses a special platen with a small valley built into it for the zipper to sit in and avoid the ink deposit.
On pullover hoodies, the restriction is a limited print height on the front, because of the pocket (if there is a pocket). Typically the maximum size will be 10″ high, but it will be less on smaller sized hoodies.
The other restriction is if you are printing on the pocket, the print area is a lot smaller than it looks.
Also, we cannot print animated GIFs. Yes, people have asked.
