About products and suppliers:

Hoodies, sweatpants, and running shoes: the quintessential kit for sportswear and a casual look. Being such prevalent pieces in every wardrobe, the potential for making custom hoodies, sweatshirts, sweaters, crewnecks, and similar clothing is limitless, especially when it comes to prints and designs. On Alibaba.com, you can order custom embroidered sweatshirts, cool hoodie designs, and ready-made clothing with your own logo and brand to keep your business well-supplied.


The fabrics used for these types of outfits are usually composed of 100% cotton, although combinations with polyester and other fibers are also common.

Methods of printing:

There are many different methods for printing graphics onto fabric, each with its own pros and cons. Between the industry standards, we find screen printing, DTG printing, and heat transfer printing.

The screen printing method is the most common one. Using a thicker ink than the others, it manages to give the hoodie design a durable printing, being more resistant to washing and folding. Although it is more durable, this hoodie printing method works with a limited amount of colors.

DTG (Direct-to-Garment) printing is ideal for a complex, multi-colored sweatshirt design that might be too complicated for screen printed hoodies.

Heat transfer printing, as the name indicates, uses heat and pressure to imprint the ink directly into the fabric. The dye-sublimation method is a type of heat transfer printing that changes the state of the ink from solid to gas and, in the conversion back to solid, joins the ink with the fabric. These “sublimated hoodies” have extremely durable inks applied to them, becoming part of the fabric. Another sweatshirt printing method uses a heated plastisol adhesive to imprint patterns onto the fabric.

With all these factors to consider, it’s important to have a lot of options to choose from. That’s when Alibaba.com can help you and your business. Contact one of many professional international suppliers to imprint the designs of your choice onto custom zip up hoodies, sweatshirts, and other pieces of clothing.
