Amer Apparel Flex Fleece Zip Hoodie #F497W

We love this hoodie!

This hoodie is super comfortable to wear and super soft. It can be tough to print multi-coloured images on this garment because the softness means it’s not very rigid and therefore hard for us to keep it still on the press. For the best printing results try and keep your image to one colour.

Standard Available Colours:

Learn more about the Amer Apparel Flex Fleece Zip Hoodie #F497W

This is a great every-day hoodie.  It is cozy, light weight, stretchy and super soft. Once you wear one, you will want to wear it every day.  The zipper is metal which means it lasts and the white draw strings match nicely with the white tape the runs down each side of the zipper.  Shrinkage on this hoodie is almost none. We find that the little it does shrink, seems to come back as soon as you put it on again. No other hoodie has fabric that feels like this. It is truly a unique offering from American Apparel. (Okay, I mislead you a little. The LA Apparel hoodie is pretty much exactly the same hoodie. Indistinguishable really, and that’s because they are pretty much the same company…but not…it’s complicated.)

Best Printing Methods

 Regular plastisol inks are a great choice, however , we suggest you stick to one colour. Due to the…

soft under layer of this sweatshirt, it is really hard to glue it down when printing. (standard printing practice is to glue garments gently to the printing pallet to keep them still while we print them)  So multiple colours can be difficult as it tends to move around while we are trying to add the next colour.

Reduced plastisol is a great option for a faded vintage look. If you want multiple colours, we suggest this method as we can print at a lower heat which helps the glue hold.

Discharge ink , which is a bleaching print method does not work consistently with this hoodie. Normally discharge only works on cotton, but we have had some success on this hoodie even though its 50/50. (yes, sometimes we break the rules, just to see…)  But it’s been hard to know when it will work and when it wont.  So only ask for discharge if you are feeling lucky. And even then, be ready for surprises.

Embroidery works well on this hoodie too, but due to the softness of this fabric, we have to stiffen it up with hard backing. This is fine for small areas, but feels crunchy on large areas and isn’t comfortable. So keep it small, like left chest.

Applique is sure to be a success too.  But due to the soft feel of this hoodie, we would suggest felt as the best fabric for applique.

We have sample of this hoodie in our showroom in North Vancouver. We are just over the second narrows bridge, so if you are in Burnaby, or Vancouver, we are close. Come by for a visit and try one one!
