How can you create a custom black hoodie?

Your designs might look different on black, so keep these tips in mind.

  • Choose art that stands out on bright colors as well as black hoodies. Anything metallic or neon works well.

  • Simplify designs by using bold lines and shapes, or add light or dark outlines to increase contrast.

  • Upload high-resolution art with crisp edges. Vector graphics usually look sharpest when printed on fabric.
