Pullover sweatshirts are a classic staple. With so many options, it’s tough to make your brand’s pullover sweatshirt stand out from all the rest. Luckily, there’s no better time to sell branded fleece! These days there’s so many wholesale variations available just waiting to be printed or embroidered. We’ve got your guide to the most practical options for your brand and the hottest selling pullover trends that are sure to vamp up your line!
Crew Neck Pullover Sweatshirts
The crew neck pullover sweatshirt is officially the new hoodie. It’s easy to layer and perfect for those fall nights when its not quite wet enough for a hood! With a clean line, this style offers the perfect blank canvas for printed fleece because there’s no pockets or cords to get in the way. Make it work for your collection: Print your designs onto the front, across the upper back or on the sleeve. Make sure to choose a blank pullover sweatshirt with a dynamic color or texture. Try heather or marbled styles like the BELLA+CANVAS 3901 Raglan Sleeve for a look that will stand out against the competition.
Color Block Sweatshirts
Whether you’re looking to print big or small, contrast details and color blocking is one of the best options for your brand right now. Finding pullover sweatshirts with contrasting sleeves, neck bands or waistbands is a great way to add a little bit of edge to your pullover and make your merch stand out. Try the Alternative Apparel AA3202 Fleece crew with a raglan sleeve—available in 3 color blocked options! Or the Independent Trading Company IND30RC with 5 color options!
DTG Printed Photo Pullovers
Picture perfect prints are still a hot item, especially in streetwear. Printing with DTG (Direct-to-Garment) ensures photo-realistic print quality onto any surface that is 90% cotton or more. This process can also be used for intricate, colorful designs that are too detailed and too expensive for the color separation needed in screen printing. While DTG is often used to print the entire rectangular shape of a photo, you can also remove the background for free-standing images—seen here on this American Classics style.
Embroidery is a trend we’ve been seeing for a while now and it’s officially the must-have application for Fall 2016. Small embroidered logos add a clean bit of edge to an otherwise basic pullover sweatshirt. Show some personality–try introducing a group of embroidered sweatshirts, all with a funky cartoon design! You can also use this as an opportunity to add a bit of color if you’ve got a neutral palette. The Cotton Heritage M2450 is the perfect economical option for embroidered pullover sweatshirts!
The Henley neckline is making a comeback this fall and made its way into the outerwear market. The Henley pullover makes for a unique item that can be dressed up or dressed down for day or night. A good printable henley pullover is a little tough to come by—luckily there’s American Apparel and the RSA4026! The price will run a little higher than your standard hoodie, but if you think you’ve got the customer for it then you’ll probably have success with style!
