In the 90s, the hood-liner trend was taking off in the skate and snow scene. Now, it’s taking over the custom apparel world. What you may not know is how simple this custom apparel look is to achieve and how it can help grow you business’ revenue.
The hood-liner is all about adding an extra embellishment to your hoodie while thinking about the architecture of the garment. In most cases, especially in the past, the hood-liner was constructed with a full cut and sew garment and not in the on-demand space in the custom apparel world. At Apliiq, they make the hood-liner process super easy to create by sublimating the artwork onto on a large piece of polyester fabric. Then, the fabric will go through a lightweight cut and sew process to be sewn into the hood.
Since this is a premium product, you want to use premium blanks like BELLA+CANVAS. This means you can charge a premium price . You can also buy one individual hoodie or you can buy thousands. This type of freedom in quantities makes the hood-liner product cost effective for both promotional product buyers and brands. Due to the minimal set up for creating the hood-liner, the margin for a large order for the promotional products space will be of great value since the price point can go down while the selling price can go up. From a brand perspective, this can be ordered through drop-ship for single orders or in bulk. We see brands selling these hoodies between $60 – $80.
