Custom Hoodies vs. Custom Sweatshirts – What’s Best for Your Business?
So what's the difference between hoodies and sweatshirts? Is it really just a hood? Do hoodies count as sweatshirts? Do sweatshirts count as hoodies? These are all questions people might think to themselves when shopping online or just when they're bored.
As far as we're concerned, a sweatshirt can be anything you wear as a second layer to keep you warmer and when you add a hood to a sweatshirt it becomes a hoodie. Now that we've broken that down let's dive deeper into some custom sweatshirt and hoodie styles that separates the two distinctions.
You might think of a hoodie as a style of a sweatshirt in it's own right, but there are hoodies come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, and styles as well! They can be pullovers, full zips, short sleeved, long sleeved, sleeveless, lightweight, insulating, and so much more. Here's a look at some of the most popular custom hoodie styles
The most popular custom hoodie style is definitely the pullover hoodie. These are so loved because of the warmth and comfort they provide. Custom pullover hoodies often have a kangaroo pocket, as seen below, but can also come with two pockets or no pockets at all. Our most popular custom pullover hoodie brands include Under Armour, Carhartt, Adidas, and Nike.
Personalized full zip hoodies are another extremely popular hoodie style, especially for athletics. Full zip hoodies are especially ideal for when you're on the move because they're easier to take off and put on... no need to mess up your hair! The only downside to a full zip hoodie is that you can't really do a front and center logo print like you can with a pullover, but smaller company logos embroidered on the chest or sleeve are more in style anyways. Our customers especially love custom full zip hoodies from Nike, Patagonia, Carhartt, Under Armour, and New Era.
Custom logo sleeveless hoodies and short sleeve hoodies are popular in fitness settings and are great if your trying to look like a famous football coach. They provide added warmth to your body and can protect your head from the sun or rain without limiting the range of motion in your arms. Plus, there's plenty of space for a printed logo.
Now that we've got a deeper understanding of custom hoodie styles, let's take a deep dive into some other custom layering options that are perfect for your custom embroidered company logo.
Custom quarter zips are the most popular sweatshirt style for our customers! This is probably because of their versatility. Wear it over a dress shirt and it's perfect for the office. Throw it on over a polo and you're ready to hit the golf course. Put it on over a t-shirt and you've got the perfect extra layer for exercising outdoors or simply relaxing. Check out our favorites from brands like Zusa, Under Armour, Peter Millar, Patagonia, and The North Face.
Custom full zip sweatshirts are another layering style that's ideal as corporate apparel. They look great over a dress shirt and are the perfect weight to wear in a drafty office. Plus, they look fantastic with a custom embroidered company logo. Our most popular personalized full zips come from top retail brands like Patagonia, The North Face, Zusa, OGIO, and Eddie Bauer.
Some might think of custom fleeces as more of a jacket than a sweatshirt, but we'll let you make that decision for yourself. Custom fleeces are known for their soft and cozy fabric that keeps you warm and dry while somehow staying breathable and flexible. Personalized fleeces come in many styles including full zip, quarter zip, hoodie, and pullover. Our best selling fleeces come from Patagonia, The North Face, Zusa, Eddie Bauer, and Columbia.
Who needs hoods and zippers anyways? Whatever these custom crewneck sweatshirts lack in features they make up for in comfort. You won't get any closer to wearing your favorite blanket than with a custom crewneck sweatshirt. Plus, crewneck sweatshirts provide more customization options than any other sweatshirt style. Our most popular crewneck sweatshirt brands include Carhartt, Champion, and Alternative Apparel.
Now we're really walking the line between sweatshirt and jacket here, but custom track jackets deserve a mention on this list. Traditionally used as team warm ups for just about every sport, track jackets with embroidered company logos have become increasingly popular in corporate America in recent years as well. Custom track jackets are usually lightweight, full zip, and made from performance fabric. We have an enormous range of colors to match your team or corporate color scheme too. Check out top options from brands like Adidas, New Balance, Under Armour, and Nike.
