11 of the Best Hoodies to Print & Embroider.

Right, it’s time for what has become one of our most popular features. Yep, it’s the update on our plain hooded tops to print and embroider article. Originally only intended as a one-off, we now revise the best blank hoodies piece on a periodic basis. Mainly because the customisable hoodie, as with most clothing, is subject to change. That’s to say, affected by the vagaries of fashion and trend, supply issues, and manufacturing processes. Below we’ll show you an unbeatable selection of high quality blank hoodies UK available and deserving of serious consideration. All made plain and undecorated, ready to print and embroider.

Just before we go best hoodie hunting, let’s give the garment a bit of historical context. Bear with us, it’s worth a short digression. Tops with hoods first popped up in Medieval Europe. But it was The Thirties before the sweatshirt hoody appeared. Between then and now, the humble hoodie has become a cherished essential. And long gone are the days when a hoodie was viewed with suspicion by some, thought to have rather dubious associations. Now, it’s a mainstream standard, visible everywhere. And that’s one reason why they’re perfect for screen printing and embroidery. The best hoodie is one adorned with your design.

1. Stanley Stella Cruiser Hoodie

Now, it’s very difficult not to like this one when you want a blank hoody to print or embroider. To explain, the Stanley Stella Cruiser (code STSU822) offers an outrageous level of versatility for customisation. Firstly, at time of writing it’s available in a staggering 47 colours. Yeah, that’s not a typo, we said 47. Second, the brand is renowned as a high quality blank hoodies wholesale supplier. Thirdly, this is a medium fit which maximises the market for your customised product. In addition, let’s not forget it’s is made from eco-friendly materials.

2. Tiger Cotton Pullover Hoodie

Next in our list of the best blank hoodies we have another plain garment which is a stand-out on several different levels. Naturally, the Tiger Cotton hoodie (code T63101) is a top quality piece of apparel. And it’s unisex so qualifies in terms of the best hoodies for men and women. Plus it’s an absolute star in the sustainability stakes. And that’s because Tiger Cotton is the product of a special environmental initiative to convert farmers to organic and preserve tiger habitats in India. Which is a pretty sensational idea in our opinion.

3. Earth Positive Classic Zip Hoodie

No piece on the hottest hooded tops would be complete without the zipped variety. Whilst presenting somewhat different options for printing, they should definitely figure in a list of the best blank hoodies for embroidery. And with this Earth Positive Classic Heavy Zip Hoodie (EP61Z) we also have an eco-friendly element. That’s to say, it’s manufactured from combed organic cotton. Plus, it’s unisex and very appealing in stylistic terms. Beyond that, the heavyweight 320g material gives it a quality feel that’s a commercial winner when rebranding.

4. As Colour Supply Hood

Although pictured with a male model, this AS Colour Supply Hood (5101) falls into that always attractive unisex category. Again, here we have a blank clothing supplier with a strong reputation for quality. Given that standing, we’d also class them as one of best affordable hoodie brands. Their Supply Hoodie is available in a very decent size range, XS to 3XL, and is mid-weight at 290g. Plus features the classic raglan sleeve and kangaroo pocket. Above, we’ve shown the asphalt heather colourway but it’s a style that comes in some lovely shades.

5. Continental Clothing Heavy Pullover Hoody

Now, one of the reasons that hooded tops are so popular for custom screen printed clothing ranges is their versatility. Put simply, they can be used in many walks of life. With that in mind, the Continental Clothing Heavy Hoodie (COR51P) may be one to consider if you’re thinking about the best blank hoodies for streetwear. Based by us in London, Continental are a brand of plain merchandise synonymous with street style. Mind you, they’re also well-known for high quality and a sustainable approach to merch made to be customised.

6. Stanley Stella Cultivator Hoodie

How about another zip up style? And one which is described by the supplier as the ‘iconic unisex zip-thru hoodie sweatshirt’. That’s something you’ll ultimately decide for yourself but we aren’t disagreeing. And the Stanley Stella Cultivator Hoodie (STSM566) certainly falls into the stylish hoodies for guys and girls bracket. Beyond looking the business, it’s made of 85% ring spun combed organic cotton and 15% recycled polyester. Plus, with XXS to 5XL, there is a super comprehensive size range. Oh, and lots of mouth watering colours.

7. Earth Positive Pullover Hoodie

These days, we firmly believe the best blank hoodies for custom branding projects are often crafted from organic cotton. Or at least have that material in the fabric blend. By the way, it’s not an opinion based entirely on the ethical perspective. Organic provides a cracking surface for printer’s ink because of the nature of the fibres. This Earth Positive Pullover Hoodie (EP51P) is a good example of such plain apparel. Like all Earth Positive stuff, it’s organic all the way. Composition aside, the cool colours and fashionable styling also shine.

8. Anthem Women’s Hoodie

So far, we’ve gone with unisex wholesale hoodie designs but we’re not averse to a male or female specific garment. After all, men’s and women’s tops have distinctive characteristics. And to prove the point we’ve included this chic little hooded number. The Anthem Women’s Hoodie (AM003) is soft and thick and fairly crying out for a spot of superior screen print or exceptional embroidery. Once again, this is a hooded sweatshirt created from a mix of responsibly sourced materials. With plenty of on-trend colours from which to choose.

9. Neutral Jersey Hoodie

We like to think our list of genuinely good hoodies is not only accurate but has something for everyone. In light of that fact, we felt compelled to make sure there was a lighter weight option in the mix. And why not? Not everyone wants a super heavyweight hood over their head. The Neutral (Neutral® Certified Responsibility) Jersey Hoodie (O62101) has a definite t-shirt hoodie vibe at a weight of 155 g/m². And while it might be less bulky than some, it has plenty of appealing features. Not least that it’s 100% Fairtrade organic cotton.

10. Bella and Canvas Raw Seam Hoodie

Fancy adding your logo or artwork to something with a relaxed, casual feel to the design? Well, we have just the item. The Bella + Canvas Raw Seam Hoodie (3742) is made of sumptuously soft sponge fleece. And, dare we say, has a certain retro street style to it. The oversized fitting is an aspect that’s trended over recent months and shows no sign of going away. There’s no doubt, the raw seams may not be for everyone. But it’s a great illustration of the variety of high quality blank hoodies available in the UK nowadays.

11. Stanley Stella Mini Cruiser Hoodie

Blank hoodies for children may not the first thing that springs to mind when thinking about branding this sort of attire. However, there is considerable demand for printed and embroidered kids hoodies. And this Stanley Stella Mini Cruiser Hoodie Sweatshirt (STSK911) is a fine example of the undecorated item. It’s sustainably made, excellent quality and boasts a dream colour palette which gives you lots of options to match your brand identity.
