Customize Hoodies Using Transfers
It’s hoodie season. The perfect apparel for the fall season is the hoodie. Hoodies come in several different fabric types including all cotton, poly/cotton blends and 100% polyester. We offer 85 hoodie choices! All can easily be decorated with custom transfers to unite any group.
There are some basic application tips needed to be used for all hoodie applications. Heat printing hoodies pose a slight challenge because there are several obstructions including the hood, the hood strings, and the front pocket.
If you can thread the hoodie onto your press, you can remove two of those obstructions from the platen area – the hood and the hood strings. You then are working with a single layer and only the pocket is obstructing the print area. To help with this, you can raise the print area only with a print perfect pad, or you can turn the pressure up to compensate for the valley created by the pocket. If you are unable to thread the heat press, hang the hood outside of the platen and use a print perfect pad to raise the print area. Either way, don’t forget to pull those strings from under the print area.
