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 a Hoodie colour

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

      When selecting a dark colour of the Hoodie, you will need to print some elements with white colour. Here is a short video on how to prepare a print file with white colour: 

    3. Opt for a Hoodie printing side

      Printing on the Front side of the Hoodie is available for all the clients globally.

      The clients who are using Cloudprinter’s Print API have printing Front and Back side options available.

      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.
      When designing the Front side of the Hoodie, include your image within the 14x8.6 in (355.6х218.4 mm) limits.
      Include your picture within the limits of 14x16 inches (355.6x406.4 mm) while designing the Back side of your Hoodie.
      HoodieYou can either print a picture in the maximum possible size 14x16 inches (355.6x406.4 mm) 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-colour 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.
