Sublimated hoodies are coming on strong. These are a hooded sweatshirt trend that is just now taking off in the midwest. The have a textured look or pattern that is created through a dye sublimation process. These are typically made of a performance polyester moisture wicking material and some are light weight and others have a great lining to add warmth and weight. These come as a full body design or sometimes just the sleeves have the patterned design. A truly great sweatshirt. The only downside to a sublimated hooded sweatshirt is the pattern and how it affects a graphic. Certain colors and graphics might blend with the hoodie pattern and be hard to see. The whole purpose of custom hoodies is to market something so depending on your purpose these might not be right for you.
Performance poly sweatshirts either solid colored or with contrast piping or accents. These are great for marketing a brand and team sports. They have a very classy look and with crips dimensions have a professional look that is great for being causal while looking sporty. Because of their performance properties they are popular among team sports as a marketing piece for athletes to wear to and from games and in just use while bopping around town. Since these are solid colored in nature printing any graphic or message in any color works fine. With the performance material does come a price increase.
