I don't know of a specific place for the sweatshirts, I would try the larger sublimation sources including Conde and Johnson Plastics. But I would remind you that sublimation will only work on white or some limited pastels. If you obtain from a non-sublimation provider, I would not purchase a large order with colors until I had tested it

Thanks ... Conde and Johnson's are my biggest suppliers for sublimation. Unfortunately, they only handle the Vapor Apparel white and ash hoodies and crews. I'm looking for pastels, or even red and royal ... they work okay to sublimate if I use blacks and percentages of black. Makes a neat effect.

We really could not find any colored hoodies as well and thus have worked with Vapor to get the Vapor hoodie fabric in bulk and will be making full color cut and sew hoodies within the next couple weeks. Feel free to PM me if you would like to see the results of this new venture we are about to undertake.

I know this is a really old post, but I thought I'd mention this in case anyone else is looking for this info. I've printed on the FlexFleece Hoodie by American Apparel with good results. These are 50/50 blends but I was happy with the results... more importantly, my customer was happy with the result. Here are the different color hoodies that we printed on.

Yes...plus a litte hideaway pocket in the front pouch for a ipod.

I'd say about the same weight as Vapor apparels, but alot nicer quality i think. (price reflects it too).
Uggh, kids are wearing, at least out west, much lighter hoodies than the standard Vapor hoodie. They are more of a fashion statement than something to keep you warm.

you should definitely get one in to check out. If there is a thinner hoodie then this, then whats the point. It really is not something to keep you warm in the winter, maybe the fall though. :)

Looking at both, the Badger may be thinner, it's a differnet material, it doesn't feel like a cotton hoodie like the vapor does.

Finally ordered a sample and did a test on a inconspicuous place behind the hood on a Silver Badger Hoodie. I was worried about I think its called Dye Migration which leaves the area surrounding the design discolored. No issues at all, was very pleased with the end result. These hoodies are very light weight and have a mesh texture under the arm and down the panels. Great for someone who wants more movement and will be using it for sports. Also very roomy. A little on the pricy side but very well made and worth the added cost IMO.

I've recently started sublimating on J AMERICA POLY FLEECE HOOD from Imprints Wholesale.
