With the right printing company behind you, you can create custom branded t-shirts, hats, bags or (as is ultra popular right now) custom jumpers and hoodies.
If you need some inspiration, keep reading. We’ll share ideas to help you custom design and print a bulk run of jumpers, look at the reasons why you should think about creating custom hoodies, crews or jumpers and how to get the best results.
Why custom print jumpers?
The Fabric Printer has been helping people create custom printed jumpers in Perth and across Australia for over 25 years. From bulk print orders to short orders or one-off designs, they do it all.
People’s reasons for wanting custom jumpers are as individual as their designs. Businesses, retailers, sporting and recreational clubs will regularly get printed clothing for their customers, employees, members and players. But, with the online sales industry booming, people are realising that there has never been a better time to start their own clothing business.
Some people have a talent for artwork and fashion and want to see their designs come to life on a jumper or hoodie. If you were ever going to do it, now is the time.
How to create custom designed jumpers
This is the fun part — creating your jumper design! Your design is only limited by your imagination. Imagery often tells a story better than words, such as using a logo for a sports team or using particular colours, like red and green for a Christmas jumper.
Remember though, your design will have to be either embroidered or printed onto jumper fabric — this isn’t the same as simply drawing a picture on a piece of paper. Simple, striking designs work best for embroidered or custom printed jumpers, as they will stand out better on fabric.
How to bring colour into your custom jumpers
Most custom jumpers look better with bright, bold colours. You want to make sure your design can be easily seen once it is printed or embroidered. The colours you use in your design need to work well with the fabric of your hoodie. As you would imagine, light colours generally look better on dark fabric and dark colours are more visible on a light background.
Your colours should also be complementary to each other if you want the best results. You might want to think about using a colour wheel to see whether your chosen colours complement or clash with each other. The Fabric Printer has over 1200 colours to choose from so you’ll have no problem finding the perfect colour combination.
Inspirations for your jumper design
You may already have an idea about what you want your custom-made jumpers to look like. However, if you need some ideas for inspiration, here are a few of our favourites:
- Street art inspired images – Some of our best custom design jumpers have been inspired by street art or graffiti. This style allows you to bring strong lines and plenty of colour and movement into your design, and even add a tag!
- Pop art inspiration – Pop art jumper designs look great. Even a simple image can be turned into something bold and colourful. They can be used to create a line of clothing for special occasions
- Christmas designs – Custom Christmas jumpers or hoodies let you choose your way of representing what the big day means to you — it could be something naughty, something nice or just creating your version of the ugly Christmas sweater!
