With the help of the templates, you can prepare the file for print in your Adobe Illustrator simply and easily.

*While preparing your Hoodie for print, you’ll have to turn off the Hoodie Visualisation layer.

Follow these 6 simple steps to design and prepare your Hoodie for print:

  1. Choose from available Hoodie sizes. 

    There is a variety of available Hoodie sizes at Cloudprinter.com — starting from S up to 5XL. 

    Choose the one that fits you best and keep in mind that the print zone remains the same independently of the Hoodie size.  

    For now, only regular fit Hoodies with pockets are available, but more types are coming soon.

  2. Opt for Hoodie material and colour.

    Currently, there are 7 available Hoodie colours at Cloudprinter.com — grey, black, yellow, red, green, white, blue.  

    You can also check the accessible Hoodie materials and choose the one you like.

  3. Decide whether you want to print on the front side, the back side, or both sides of the Hoodie.
    You can choose whatever fits you best — place your picture on the front side of your Hoodie, on the back side, or print on both sides. To print on both the front and back sides, choose the templates for your size and upload 2 files to send your Hoodie for global print. 
  4. Keep in mind the print area sizes on the Front and Back sides of the Hoodie   

    The print areas don't change depending on the size of your Hoodie.

    Because of the kangaroo pocket, the print area is different on the Front and Back sides of the Hoodie, so make sure to choose the file with the corresponding name. Include your picture within the limits of 16х14 inches (406.4х355.6 mm) while designing the Backside of your Hoodie.

    When designing the front side of the Hoodie, include your image within the 14x8.6 in (355.6х218.4 mm) limits.

    You can either print a picture in the maximum possible size or place a picture of a smaller size wherever you want within the limits of the print zone.

    It concerns printing both on the front and back sides of your Hoodie.

  5. Select the picture for your Hoodie

    Make sure your picture quality and size are appropriate for the Hoodie print area. 

    That's important to make sure the picture isn't blurred and meets your expectations when printed. 

    You can go for a multi-colour or 1-2 colours picture — whatever is better for you.

  6. Prepare file for printing.

    - Set 300 DPI resolution;

    - Choose RGB print;

    - Save the file in PDF/X-4.

Well done! Now you can print your Hoodie all over the world as close to the delivery destination as possible.
