If you have a growing hoodie collection and you’re interested in a design that’s all your own, you can custom design your own hoodies online or in-store with Toronto Tees. Here, we have provided some fun, easy, and unique tips on how to design a custom hoodie that everyone will rave about.

#1 – Use Your Own Hand-Drawn Art

You want your custom printed hoodies to be unique, and there’s no better way to do that than by using your own hand-drawn art. It’s the ultimate expression of you, after all. You can use this art on the front, back, or left chest area, or you can use different pieces of complementary art in each of these locations. The good news is that you can keep it as simple or complex as you’d like, and in the end, you will have your very own (and completely unique) custom zip up hoodies. You can keep them for yourself, give them to friends, or sell them – the choice is yours.

#2 – Choose the Right Colors

When you design your own hoodie, it’s very important that the images or text printed on the garment are visible. When you choose Toronto Tees to design your own customized hoodies online, you will be able to choose not only the garment color, but also the color of text and numbers. Though complimentary colors are always fantastic, you can never go wrong when you choose white printing on dark colors or black printing on lighter colors. It keeps your custom-made hoodies highly visible.


#3 – Use the Right Design Dimensions

The tool we provide to design your own hoodie online allows you to make the imagery you choose large, small, or anything in between. Ideally, you will want to make sure you choose images with crisp, clean lines, and you should place those images in such a way that it’s easy to tell what they are, even from several feet away. Detailed images that are too small might be difficult to decipher, as are very simple images that are too large on the garment. Image size matters when it comes to cheap personalized hoodies, so don’t be afraid to experiment.

#4 – Consider Adding Your Name

There is no better way to make your custom hoodie uniquely yours than adding your name. Toronto Tees gives you several ways to do this, as well. You can make your name large or small, choose from a variety of fonts and colors, and even pick just the right location. You can put your name on the left chest of the garment for subtlety, or you can put it across the entire back of your custom-made hoodies to make a bolder statement.

#5 – Order More than One

Custom printed hoodies are a lot of fun, and there’s no doubt they can quickly become your favorite go-to outerwear for fighting off the chill. Unfortunately, accidents do happen. Hoodies get damaged or lost from time to time, and for those of us who really love our hoodies, it’s heartbreaking. Ordering more than one custom printed hoodie ensures that you’ll always have an extra on hand, even on laundry day.
