Fresh Hoods Brand Review.

Fresh Hoods Screenshot

Fresh Hoods has a large collecion of vibrant All Over Print apparel with an emphasis on Hoodies from various manufacturers. With Artsy, Trippy, Pop Culture, and Nature themes, they offer something for everyone

As for the Print Quality, the prints are vivid and crisp. Being sublimated prints the ink has great coverage and absorbtion, though along the seams there may be missed gaps but that is normal for this technique and really not that noticeable. If the hoodies and tees are washed inside out in cold water with mild detergent (No Bleach or Harsh Chemicals) and allowed to air dry then the designs should last years.

The hoodie fabric is Polyester. It is lighter than cotton and extremely soft. I wouldn't consider these cold weather hoodies but rather cool weather apparel instead.

And for the sizing, they tend to run larger than anticipated ( which is nothing new in the sublimated clothing industry) Tees and Hoodies ranging from S to 3XL. The Medium Hoodie shown looks and feel closer to Large maybe bigger so keep that in mind.

Fresh Hoods:

How did Fresh Hoods get started and what is your brand all about?

Ever since childhood, I've been fascinated by two things: art & fashion. So I have decided to dedicate my life to these passions of mine. During my graphic design studies I've met some amazing guys with whom I had common dreams. After years of planning, we were finally able to start our own online store selling unique apparel based on our ideas, designed by professional artists. We are all about providing quality high - definition apparel for an affordable price.

What are the Fresh Hoods ideals?

Our goal is to create clothing that is not just comfortable, but helps you expressing your personality.

Wolves Hoodie Deign Fresh Hoods

Wolves Hoodie Design Review.

The Wolves hoodie design features one Grey wolf and one Brown wolf each looking in opposite directions with a galaxy background. This design is ideal for people who love animals, nature, and outer space.

The concept, if I had to guess is all about the spiritual animal being a wolf. The two of them together implying that the journey doesn't have to be taken alone. The galaxy motif adds the spiritual element.

As for the artwork it is realistic and outdoorsy. These canine friends seem to give an impression of "not to be intimidated" yet patience and calmness if unprovoked.

This is a casual design to be worn at any setting or event such as concerts, camping, class, etc.

This hoodie will make a great gift for animal and nature enthusiasts.

Surprise Attack Shirt Design by Alchemist.

Surprise Attack Shirt Design Review.

The Surprise Attack shirt design is for the people into nature, and wolves.

The concept for the Surprise Attack Shirt is simply to show a pack of wolves backed by the Northern Lights. Other than that obvious observation, there isn't much to go on. The artwork is where real story lies.

As for the artwork, it's style is different, "messy" is the word that I'd use to describe it. Therefore, it is a bit different than the rest of shirts reviewed here. For instance, the style makes the wolves seem more like spirits or apparitions rather than actual flesh, Fur, and blood. Even though they are not spirits. It is due to the way that they are reflecting the Northen Lights. Also, the colors being what I would describe as neon Teal and Pink are an extremely unusual combination that aside from some 80's throwbacks you do not see too often in other themes. with that stated, there is an odd beauty that possesses this piece. Those colors do fall out of gamut for the final print but the effects are the same.

As for the Print, we went with a hoodie as we felt that this design deserved a large print. It is extremely muted and washed out compared to the DBH thumbnail of the design. At least for the Pinks and Teals. This time it is the fault of the designer and not DBH. As the designer chose colors that are on the RGB scale but not the CMYK scale which fall out of gamut. Therefore, we cannot recommend this cool design for apparel as a result. The Hoodie is comfy and cozy. As for tees it would print the same muted colors. Design By Humans Still offers plenty of attractive and printable designs to choose instead.

Surprise Attack Shirt Design By Alchemist.

Is available on T-shirts, Sweatshirts, Hoodies, Tank Tops, Baseball Tee, Phones Cases, Art Prints. Black and Navy are the fabric color choices available for the Hoodie which are appropriate but Charcoal and other night-like colors would also be nice. Slate Blue is also available for the tees.

Wolf Spirit Tee Design By andreahrnjak.

Wolf Spirit Tee Design Review.

The Wolf Spirit tee design is for the people into nature, spirituality, and wolves.

The concept for the Wolf Spirit tee is to show a young woman's face surrounded by nature elements. For instance, her head is in the "above" placement which suggest that she is a goddess (probably Lupa) or as the title indicates a spirit. While the girl appears to be Caucasian, there is a strong Native American vibe to her. The first thing that you will notice is the girl herself, she has this serious expression on her face, such as don't mess with her. The next thing you might notice is that her eye makeup. Which almost looks like it ran via tears but she is not crying. Finally, you will see some pine trees and White wolves under her long purple hair and protection.

As for the artwork, it has a soft touch. There is intricate details with the woman's hair and eyes that were laid down lightly. The effects of which looks like it took a long time create. Take note of the soft palette of Pink, Purple, and White which set the mood, giving it an early morning type of feel.

As for the Print, we went with a hoodie as we felt that this design deserved a large print. It is a bit muted compared to the DBH thumbnail of the design. At least for the White and Violets. This probably because we went with Black for the fabric color choice. We'd recommend that this design be printed on a lighter color for blending purposes as opposed to contrast on hoodies. The Hoodie is comfy and cozy. As for tees it should print fine and much bolder based on our experience with DBH.

Arm The Animals Logo

Arm The Animals Tee Brand Review.

Arm The Animals Tee Brand

Arm The Animals Tee Brand is a charitable business that supports Animal Rights. Meaning that a portion of the proceeds goes to various charities supporting that cause.

As for the Print Quality, the shirts and fleece that we have are printed slightly above the average Direct To Garment digital prints and are on par with ones that you would find at sites such as Redbubble.

This is a print to order type of business so the turn around time is usually great. Here is their shipping policy in their own words:

Shipping Policy

"We run most online orders on a “print to order basis” and we begin fulfillment as soon as possible. We buy blanks, produce, QC, and ship every day of the week and we can turn most orders in 5-7 business days. We are always working on this process to make it faster and more efficient and each quarter, we can get our orders out a day or two quicker. "

Arm The Animals Tee Brand Interview:

How did Arm The Animals Tee Brand get started and what is your brand all about?

Arm The Animals was born from tragedy in 2010 as an attempt to express the inexpressible. Created following the untimely death of my sister (who a lifelong animal advocate and “pet parent” to a dozen rescues), Arm The Animals would serve as a living tribute and means of carrying on a legacy that was ended too soon. It all started as an emotional reaction and a hobby, but thankfully, it took and has evolved into the brand you see today.

What are the ATA ideals?

Our ideals are really simple: Make killer tees and make an impact on the welfare of as many animals in need as possible. We want to be the voice of people out there who are not extremists, but truly care about animal welfare. We like to send a strong message via imagery and up to this point, we think we have done a good job of that. Charitable cause are really personal and subjective, but we see millions of animals in need and we just want to help as best we can. Our company motto is, “Speak for the Speechless & Defend the Defenseless”, so that’s the basic credo all of our designs speak to.

Who designs the tees?

95% of all designs are done in house and by myself or RJ Ochoa. We try to do as much in-house as possible, but about 2 years ago, we began reaching out and using a small network of artists from around the world. We have released items featuring art from Thailand, The Philippines Australia, The UAE, Ukraine and more. We really like the idea of getting a new, “Global take” on our concepts, which can be tough to do from inside the company. We have also had guest artists come and work in the office with us for weeks at a time; Franz Garcia (http://franzdg.blogspot.com/) & Tony Koehl (http://www.sketchthesoul.com/featured/they-died-not-knowing-tony-koehl.html) made major contributions to our releases over the past 2 years in particular.

What inspires the tees?

We have been inspired by making an impact on the general welfare of animals, but certain instances also influence us. For example, when Cecil the lion was killed last year, it inspired a hugely successful design that raised over $12,000 for the ZCTF, who patrols the area where Cecil was killed. Originally, ATA started as just a hobby to help cat/dog shelters and it has now mushroomed into covering all animals of all types. So many species are facing extinction and plight that there is no shortage of inspiration and when it all comes together, like it did with Cecil, the results are amazing!

How would you classify the tees?

We’re actually proud that there is no clear classification for our tees; I mean, they are graphic tees, but you can’t simply say they are high fashion, or hipster, or beach life inspired or political, etc. To us, they are all that… Animal welfare cuts across every demographic on the planet, so we’re lucky to be able to appeal to so many different kinds of people. This isn’t easy, but it is a good problem to have in our estimation.

When we researched animal welfare tees back in 2010 when we started the company - all we found was kittens and butterflies, or blood and guts - with nothing in between for the every man or every woman out there. We wanted to make tees for people who are pissed and care about animals and want to show it - so that’s what we attempted to do. We have had any kind of person you could imagine support us and have even seen three generations of a family all buy a different shirts from us at an event. That’s something special and it’s not something a ton of brands can pull off.

Design By Humans Interview.

How did Design By Humans get started and what is your brand all about?

Design By Humans opened its doors in 2007 with the vision of giving artists a platform to share their art with the world. At the time, daily contests allowed artists to submit their work to be voted on by fans. The winning design would be printed and become available for purchase.

Though democratic in nature, the idea of selling just one winning T-Shirt every day simply wasn’t ideal. We wanted more artists to have the chance to sell their work. Fast forward to 2015: Artists can now sell their artwork from their own branded storefront. Our artist network now includes over 15,000 from around the globe.

In addition, we use a print-on-demand format, allowing the artists to offer more designs on a diverse set of product types and colors to their fans. We still love T-Shirts, but being able to offer options like hoodies, tank tops and phone cases gives our artists more canvases on which to work.

What are the DBH ideals?

Design By Humans aims to empower artists by providing them with a platform to display and sell their work. Their “canvases” (i.e. T-Shirts, sweatshirts, tank tops, art prints and phone cases) are always of the highest quality, a commitment we take seriously. Every garment we sell is hand-selected and guaranteed to be sweatshop and child labor-free, and the inks we use are water-based and phthalate-free.

Design By Humans relentlessly pursues new ways to bring art to life through new screen-printing and digital printing techniques. We are obsessed with apparel innovation.

DBH stands behind our artists and jumps at any opportunity to promote them. We highlight artists through our social channels and artist interviews, and actively search for fans wearing their amazing art. We push artists to participate in contests and monthly design challenges, and connect brands with our artists when the opportunity to create for licensed apparel arises.

In addition, DBH offers artists industry-leading royalties for their work. Their work is the life of our business. Without them, we would be just another generic T-Shirt company. But because we attract the highest caliber artists from around the world, we’re afforded some of the best wearable artwork you’ll find!

Who designs the tees?

Over 15,000 artists from around the globe contribute their amazing art to the “T-Shirt ecosystem” that is Design By Humans. We’ve created an amazing community of artists and art lovers alike, and given them a canvas -- and a platform -- to show and sell their work.

In addition, Design By Humans works closely with a diverse and talented group of hand-picked artist on special projects and collections, and is constantly seeking out top talent in building an in-house team of artists.

What inspires the tees?

Though we can’t speak to what inspires our community of artists, we can speak to the diversity of subjects for which they choose to create art. Artists design for categories ranging from abstract art to typographical pieces; from animals to people; from retro to modern.

Pop culture is an expansive category that can encompass subjects derived from television and movies to music and parody. Design By Humans is taking big strides to capture the gaming market as well, creating licensed art for major games and streamers alike.

How would you classify the tees?

To classify our tees, you could easily take a look at the impressive range of categories, shops and collections found at Design By Humans. Some of our categories include: Abstract, Animals, Characters, Food & Drink, Funny, Gamer, Horror, Music, Nature, Pop Culture and more.

In addition, we’ve created shops and collections based on subject matter. We’re excited to include Star Wars, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Marvel Comics, DC Comics, Diablo III, and Assassin’s Creed Unity among our long list of licensed shops that feature official artwork. We’re always adding new shops and collections to the site as well.

Our latest initiative is gaming and eSports. We love gaming, first and foremost. If we’re not working, there’s a good chance we’re gathered around a console or streaming on the DBH Twitch account. As such, we’re pushing hard to become the leader in gaming and streaming apparel.

We support triple-A gaming titles, top-tier eSports teams like Evil Geniuses and scores of popular Twitch and YouTube Gaming streamers by offering custom branded apparel and storefronts, and access to our artist community and in-house art team.

Winter Is Coming Tee Design by Firebeard.

Winter Is Coming Tee Design Review.

The Winter Is Coming tee design is for(you guessed it!) Game of Thrones fans and those who are fond of the Starks and their Direwolf sigil.

The concept is simply a reimagined Direwolf's head that is drawn in a much different style than the HBO version. And for the text "Winter Is Coming." well it's the motto of House Stark.

As far as the artwork, it looks a little like a werewolf... I won't lie. But it does look cool and it has more attitude. More of a snarl and instead of matted fur that resembles scales it actually looks like fur. The messy distressing/splatter/grunge effect is perfect for the Starks. It also makes it look a bit more wintry like a snow storm. The colors and shading are both good.

This is a cool tee for people that root for endangered Starks obviously but most Game of Thrones fans wouldn't mind adding it to their collections.

Winter Is Coming Tee design by Firebeard.

Is available on T-shirts, Tank Tops, Hoodies, Long Sleeves, Sweatshirts and Dog T-shirts. Many fabric color choices are available. The review breakdown is as follows:

Big Face Attack Wolf Tee Design by David Penfound

Big Face Attack Wolf Tee Design Review.

The Big Face Attack Wolf tee design is for the people that love, fear, admire and respect wolves.

The wolf image is super detailed and photo realistic. It looks 3D with the wolf's snout foreshortened and the rest of the wolf's face being slightly out of focus.

The composition of a big snarling wolf with gigantically sharp bloody fangs and eerily green eyes as an allover print is kick ass. The dripping blood goes beyond sick. The only critique to this piece is that both pupils should have the same highlight, where as one of them is missing it completely. But that is not enough of a reason to detract any design points.

Compared to the other wolf tees out there nothing else even comes close to the ones from The Mountain. Their imagery is much larger and sharper. That definitely makes them the place to shop for animal lovers.

This is a great nature shirt with attitude to wear anywhere.

Is available on: Tees. There is no choice in fabric color, but none is needed since the design takes up the entire shirt. The review breakdown is as follows:

Adventure Wolf Tee Design Review.

The Adventure Wolf tee design is for the people that love and admire wolves.

The wolf image is super detailed and of photograph quality. The lone wolf is on guard and has this majestic vibe to it. A little empowering for those who relate to the wolf as a spirit animal.

The composition of a Wolf and Moon or a Wolf and Sun isn't that original nor is the concept itself, but it does look badass. The lighting from behind gives it an almost halo type of effect. But it is the wolf's cold hard stare that makes this tee.

Compared to the other wolf tees out there nothing else even comes close to the ones from The Mountain. Their imagery is much larger and sharper. That definitely makes them the place to shop for animal lovers.

This is a great nature shirt to wear anywhere.
