Printed leavers hoodies (what you need to know)

If you have been tasked with finding personalised hoodies for your class, year group or school in time for leavers day, we can help you out. We are a friendly, reliable supplier of high-quality custom products and we print school leavers hoodies with class’s names and school logos for hundreds of UK schools and academies.

“We make custom printed hoodies easy to design and order for your year group. You can expect easy ordering, great quality and a friendly service from our UK based printing factory”

In this blog we break down all the important things you need to know about how to order leavers hoodies: from design to timings and how to get the best value for money for parents.

Logo and leavers names make a great design

For the best value for money, whilst still being super cool for the kids, we recommend a  simple chest print with your organisation’s logo and the leaving year on the chest of a pullover or zip hood: It’s simple and pocket prints are trendy and the hoodie shape is forgiving on sizing. Using a single colour print is the lowest cost option. For extra flair, some people take a list of leavers names and use them to form the year on the back – it’s a little extra artwork but can look incredible.

If you want to add names to the year date on the back, all you need to get going is a list of names and access to some editing software, like Adobe Illustrator. Preparing artwork like the one above is easy, even if you’re a beginner. We have loads of templates you can download for free on our website if you need a hand.

It’s best to have your logo in vector format, which most logos come in as standard – and that’s the best format for screen printing, which is the method we use for print custom hoodies.


Our state-of the art printing facility in the UK is trusted by some of Europe’s biggest brands for retail quality items, so your order is in safe hands. And as standard, we will supply hoodies made from organic cotton which is kind to skin – because we are one of the largest manufacturers of printed clothing in the UK, we go direct to factory to make our own sweaters and this means we can make great quality products that last longer through washes whilst being lower on price than many smaller firms.

“You can save money with our price breaks – the more you order the cheaper the products get.”

And whilst most companies have a minimum order size, with us you can mix and match colours and sizes within that as long as the design stays the same.

Let us know your deadline

We are a super fast custom printer. Screen printing custom hoodies normally has around a week’s waiting time.

“During in busy times like end of term, we may have many hundreds of schools and colleges in the queue so we recommend placing your order well in advance.”

If you know your end of term date – let us know so that we can ensure your delivery gets to you in plenty of time.

Mix and match sizes and colours

For school hoodies we recommend going with a unisex hoody shape. Small for girls and medium or large for boys works best and will fit them for longer. But if you want a different size for each student we can mix and match different colours and sizes in one order at no extra cost.
