Embroidery is a common technique used to add logos and text to a piece of clothing. Today’s super-speed industrial embroidery machines are capable of stitching on as many as eight different pieces at a time. Generally, it’s well-suited to heavy materials that can really show it off. You’ve probably seen lots of logos embroidered on the chest but they can also be placed on the back or sleeves. Get in touch with one of our printing experts now!
Screen printing is a popular technique used to create personalised printed hoodies and can give you quick, high-quality results. The way it works is by pushing inks through a screen directly onto a garment. The screen has some areas cut out and others blocked out so you can get the shape of your image or logo just right. If you need rich prints on your garments then this is the process for you.

There are a few different techniques you can use to print designs on hoodies. The two most common are screen printing and embroidery, which we’ve explained above. You can also use DTG (direct-to-garment) printing and transfer printing (which uses heat and transfer paper). How you personalise your hoodies depends heavily on the type of garment you choose. The techniques for hoodies are slightly different from other types of clothing like personalised T-shirts are personalised sportswear.
The most common option is a 100% cotton hoodie, which is compatible with most printing techniques. If you have a colourful logo or design you want to be printed on a custom hoodie, it’s strongly advised to use this material to avoid disappointments down the line. Screen printing may still work with cotton blends but DTG must work exclusively with 100% cotton. Luckily, there are lots of great options to choose from with different fabric types and at different price points.
Printing in bulk lets you get the best price per unit possible. Because screen printing involves creating special materials and requires the items to spend a relatively high amount of time in the machine, the ideal way to do it is to use the same setup to print a large order of custom T-shirts all in one go. Printing 50 units isn’t the same as printing 500, but the time it takes to do the setup is the same in both cases. That’s why the more units you print, the better the price.
