We print custom hoodies mostly with traditional inks, but some hoodies work well with waterbased inks and our special discharge inks, which result in very soft prints. The higher the cotton content in the hoodie, the better it will discharge. It should be at least 80%, but for more vibrant results, 90% or 100% cotton is best. American Apparel styles 5495 and 5497 are 100% cotton and discharge very well and are some of our most popular hoodies.

It will depend on which hoodie you use. If it is a 50/50 blend hoodie (half cotton, half polyester) which is the most common, or it’s a tri-blend hoodie or less than 80% cotton, we should use the traditional ink. It will be heavier on the hoodie, but it will be fine on the heavier fabric, and we could just do one layer of ink to keep it softer and have a vintage result. Hoodies that are 90% or 100% cotton work well with discharge inks. When the hoodies are white or light in color, or the ink is a lot darker than the fabric color, we can use waterbased inks without a problem.
It’s totally up to you! Our favorites are Gildan, Independent, and American Apparel. If you need guidance, we can help you find the right hoodie to use.
Printing on the pouch and hood is problematic and we can’t do it with guaranteed good results. We can do the lower back, which is popular, with no problem, and sleeves or across the zipper is fine too!
It varies a lot, and is determined by the amount of hoodies printed, the type of hoodie used, and how complicated the printing is, for example if it’s just a 1 color print on the front, or if it is multiple colors on both sides.
No, sorry, you can't order just one custom hoodie. Screen printing involves a ton of set up work, and that is why we have minimums. If you need just a couple, look into "DTG Printing."
For hoodies our minimum order is only 24 pieces, while it's usually 48 or 100 pieces for shirts.

Remember, the more you get, the less they cost (price breaks at 100, 200 and 500 pieces), and the more complicated the printing is, the higher the cost may be.
We can print up to six colors on the front and the back, but note that sometimes we have to use a white underbase layer of ink, which would count as one of the colors.
