Best Custom Printed Hoodies: Top 5 Companies

Best Reviews, 8/9/2018

As the general manager of a national custom screen printing and embroidery company, I spend a lot of time researching the best companies in the custom decorated apparel business. It is my belief that quality and service go hand in hand in creating the best customer experience and keeping customers coming back to do business time and time again.

To help you choose the best custom printed hoodies for your custom apparel needs, I’ve compiled a list of companies that make the best custom printed hoodies. I base my ratings on garment quality, screen printing quality, how long it takes to get your custom garments, price, garment selection, website ease of use, art services provided, and shipping costs. Check the ratings of each of these categories below to determine which company best meets your needs. Also be sure and read “my view” as it points out what is different about each company and can help you decide which company will work best for you.

1. Broken Arrow T-Shirt Printing and Embroidery

Web Address: https://www.brokenarrowwear.com

Standard Turnaround Time: Delivered 6 business days after order placement

12 quality hoodies with 1 color printing on the front will cost you $22 each.

Pros of Broken Arrow

  • Hoody Quality: EXCELLENT
  • Screen Printing Quality: EXCELLENT
  • Hoody Selection: EXCELLENT
  • Website: EXCELLENT
  • Prices: CHEAP
  • Art Services: FREE easy online designer; Experienced on-staff artists can create a logo or design for your hoody for FREE if you prefer.
  • Shipping Costs: FREE
  • Years in Business: 28

Cons of Broken Arrow

  • Late night and weekend orders must be placed via website only.

My View

If you want the best custom hoodies fast and cheap without any surprise charges at checkout, Broken Arrow is your best bet. The online designer is easy to use, and, if you aren’t the design-it-yourself type, a talented artist will create a design for you free of charge.

2. Blue Cotton

Web Address: https://www.bluecotton.com

Standard Turnaround Time: Delivered 10 business days after order placement

12 quality hoodies with 1 color printing on the front will cost you $23 each.

Pros of Blue Cotton

  • Hoody Quality: EXCELLENT
  • Screen Printing Quality: EXCELLENT
  • Hoody Selection: GOOD
  • Website: GOOD
  • Prices: CHEAP
  • Art Services: OK—the free online designer has pretty good clipart options, BUT it has less text and printing options (such as choosing the degree of distressing) than Broken Arrow’s and is a little more difficult to use. Art services are not mentioned on the Blue Cotton website but after a phone call I learned art services are available if you ask and start at $25-$50 for a simple design and go up from there.
  • Shipping Costs: FREE
  • Years in Business: 20

Cons of Blue Cotton

  • Late night and weekend orders must be placed via website only. If you want art help, it’s going to cost you.

My View

Blue Cotton is a solid second choice. The company offers some products you might not expect at a custom apparel printing company, like spiral notebooks and golf balls–but be prepared to order a lot of them!

3. Spread Shirt

Web Address: https://www.spreadshirt.com

Standard Turnaround Time: Delivered 6-8 business days after order placement

12 quality hoodies with 1 color printing on the front will cost you $30 each.

 Pros of Spread Shirt

  • Hoody Quality: EXCELLENT
  • Screen Printing Quality: EXCELLENT
  • Hoody Selection: GOOD
  • Website: GOOD
  • Prices: COULD BE BETTER
  • Art Services: If you want something semi-custom that has already been created by an independent designer, check out this site.
  • Shipping Costs: $6 for one item standard delivery; prices increase when you order more items
  • Years in Business: 16

Cons of Spread Shirt

  • Late night and weekend orders must be placed via website only. You pay shipping and the cost gets higher instead of lower when you order more hoodies. If you want art help, it’s gonna cost you.

 My View

The thing that makes Spreadshirt a little different from other custom apparel companies is that they offer a large selection graphic designs that are already made. You simply look through the designs and choose from what’s available. When you place an order, they will print the design on a hoody.

4. Rush Order Tees

Web Address: https://www.rushordertees.com

Standard Turnaround Time: Delivered 8 business days after order placement

12 quality hoodies with 1 color printing on the front will cost you $38 each.

 Pros of Rush Order Tees

  • Hoody Quality: EXCELLENT
  • Screen Printing Quality: GOOD
  • Hoody Selection: FAIR
  • Website: GOOD
  • Art Services: Free Easy Online Designer
  • Shipping Costs: FREE
  • Years in Business: 16
  • Open evenings and weekends

Cons of Rush Order Tees

  • Prices: HIGH
  • There is no live art help, so you will be uploading your own art or using clipart or templates to create your T-shirt design.

My View

If you send in art that isn’t up to par, Rush Order Tees will make minor adjustments, such as centering the design, or changing colors. The designer is pretty easy to use, especially if you use one of their templates and just make minor changes.

5. Custom Ink

Web Address: https://www.customink.com

Standard Turnaround Time:  Delivered 14 business days after order placement

12 quality hoodies with 1 color printing on the front will cost you $25 each.

Pros of Custom Ink

  • Hoody Quality: Excellent
  • Screen Printing Quality: Excellent
  • Hoody Selection: Good
  • Prices: GOOD
  • Website: Excellent
  • Art Services: Free Easy Online Designer, NO live art help
  • Shipping Costs: Free
  • Years in Business: 19
  • Open evenings and weekends

Cons of Custom Ink

  • They do not provide art help, you must use the designer. Prices are not very consistent from product to product; some are very high, some are pretty good.

My View

Custom Ink is one of the largest online screen printers in the U.S. Like Broken Arrow, they offer all-inclusive pricing. The prices at Custom Ink vary greatly depending on product selection, so choose carefully.
