While many websites claim to be “apparel wholesalers,” I’ve found during many google searches, companies offering wholesale apparel that’s barely cheaper than retail price. If you are planning on starting an apparel business and rebranding wholesale blanks, then obviously you need to be able to obtain substantial margins. So on that note let’s talk about some actual quality wholesale blank apparel offered at great prices with great bulk discounts. And bulk discounts are really important because the more you buy the more you save. Which allows you to have a larger inventory of printable t-shirts, bulk hoodies, joggers and etc. Since it’s hoodie season, my absolute favorite season, here’s the best wholesale hoodies on a budget!
In no particular order here’s some of the best bulk hoodies on the market currently that are in line with every budget. Some of these differ between full-zip, no zip, heavyweight and well you get the idea. However all of these hoodies wholesale I’ve found to be of quality and most importantly allows for great prints. Whether you prefer basic heat transfers or htv, direct to garment prints, or screen printing, these are reliable basic hoodie options for you.

But back to best wholesale hoodies on a budget. No doubt you have heard of Gildan brand if you are at all acquainted with the world of basic t-shirts and apparel. The Gildan 18500 g185 heavy blend hoodie is an ultra-printable, durable, heavyweight hoodie. From my experience this is an exceptional basic affordable hoodie that works well with all types of prints I’ve used. Perfect for schools and large events as well. And comes in 43 colors with a tearaway label so it’s super easy to rebrand for your own custom apparel line.
Above I briefly mentioned eco-friendly bulk apparel. The Hanes P170 Ecosmart Hooded Sweatshirt is made of 50/50 cotton poly blend which is partially from recycled plastic bottles. Not only is this bulk hoodie better for the environment than other options in a similar price range, but the fleece is high-density PrintPro XP for smooth prints. Printing on 50/50 can take a bit more finesse, however, if you do it right the prints can come out really nice and unique. Fifty, fifty cotton polyester blends are perfect for a vintage or retro look. Plus they won’t shrink like 100% cotton and you can even sublimate print on them. Just like the Gildan 18500, the P170 comes in a variety of colors, 29 to be exact.
NuBlend fleece may sound new to some of you, but those of us in the basic hoodies and apparel world have come to love and covet this wholesale Jerzees pill-resistant fleece. Pre-shrunk with a convenient tearaway label, the Jerzees 996MR NuBlend Hoodie is a favorite among screen printers and apparel designers alike. The 50/50 cotton poly has a very high stitch density for extra smooth prints plus the cotton is sustainably sourced USA grown cotton.

With Halloween just around the corner it’s nice to have some nice full-zip hoodie options. This 8.0 oz. basic zip hoodie from Gildan brand is an extra affordable and dependable hoodie sweatshirt wholesale. Made from 50/50 cotton/polyester with reduced pilling and softer air-jet spun yarn, you can’t beat the g186 Gildan 18600 at this super low price point. Also comes with easy tearaway label and offered in 18 classic colors.
What’s more comfortable than a 50/50 cotton poly blend and a lot more breathable? Without sacrificing much warmth at all, the 80/20 cotton poly blend hoodie is truly the perfect combo. I’m sure that you will agree that 100% cotton is often softer than 50/50 blend however with its own set of drawback. So this 80/20 cotton poly Tultex 320 Unisex Fleece Hooded Sweatshirt offers a better feel, less shrinkage, better durability, less pilling, and still quite warm.
When it comes to screen printing, heat press printing, direct-to-garment, etc., the Hanes F170 Ultimate Cotton Hoodie immediately comes to my mind. 100% cotton shirts make for easy printing with a larger variety of inks and colors that will work. The Hanes patented, low-pill, and high-stitch density PrintPro XP fleece is 90/10 cotton/polyester with a 100% cotton face.

I couldn’t think of any better choice for most printable blank hoodie as part of my best wholesale hoodies on a budget list.

More often than not, unisex hoodies just simply do not fit us women. It’s always a super unflattering fit with limited colors and sizes. Well that was before now… Introducing the Bella + Canvas 3719 Unisex Sponge Fleece Hoodie made for everyone truly. Because everyone deserves only the softest hoodie of 52/48 airlume combed and ringspun cotton/polyester. The result from fleece being airlume combed and ringspun is such a huge difference. Luxuriously soft and comfy, if you pick any hoodie from this list it should be this one.
