Sewn vs Unsewn Can Koozies
Before you start shopping, you’ll need to decide whether you want sewn or unsewn can coolers. Unsewn can coolers are shipped flat and require sewing after embellishing them; while sewn can coolers lay flat to embellish but are ready to use.
Are sewn or unsewn can koozies better? Honestly, it’s up to you. Sewn can koozies can be difficult to heat press, but unsewn can koozies require extra hours and labor.

Outsourcing Bulk Can Koozie Orders
In my opinion, it is not worth it to use your Silhouette or Cricut to make bulk order of can koozies, because it is tie consuming. When you factor in your labor rate, you likely won’t be able to sell the can holders for enough money to cover the time weeding and pressing.
So, should you decline a bulk order? Absolutely not! Instead, outsource it to a screen printer. Let’s look at a couple of examples.
Wedding Favor Bulk Order Example
- Customer Wants: 100 navy blue can holders with a yellow design that reads: “To Have and To Hold… and keep your drink cold. Will & Christine, 20XX”
- Pricing with 24 Hour Wristbands: At the time I checked the pricing, there was a 10% coupon code at the top of the site and free shipping. My order total was $63.
- Profit: You charge the customer $150 and you make $87 for designing the product and having it printed.
Event Bulk Order Example
- Customer Wants: 500 white can koozies with their company logo in blank. They will provide the logo.
- Pricing with 24 Hour Wristbands: Again, using 24 Hour Wristbands for this order, you would pay $165.
- Profit: You could charge your customer $1 each and make $335 for uploading their image and having it printed.
Trademark Concerns: Koozie is Trademarked
As a reminder: When selling koozies, be sure to not use the word “koozie” in your sale listing. Why? It’s trademarked to Norwood Promotional Products, who is very aggressive with trademark violations.
Good alternatives include: can holder, can cooler, sleeve, or coolie.
