Splitting Design on Zipper Hoodies

Back in the day, artwork on zipper hoodies were printed on the back, with a smaller version/excerpt of design on upper right of front of garment. Now the art image is printed solely on the front, and split by the zipper. A majority of art doesn’t make sense unless hoodie is zipped up. I love me a zipper hoodie, but haven’t been buying because of what I see as a design issue — why not print the entire, unbroken art on the back?

Hi there. That requires some updates to our system. We’ve tried various ways to get the people manning the printers to flip the item for back printing and it just doesn’t work. It’s something we want to do.

Have you tried flipping the machines?

HAHA. Hang 'em from the ceiling?

You were able to do it once upon a time, because I have the killer rabbit zip hoodie with the design on the back.

Yes, that was when we did screen printing. Much different. We would print all of one type of apparel at one time. Our system is very different now. Sorry.

When feasible, it would be cool if the design was scaled down and printed on the left/right upper chest area.
