PART 2 - DETAILED RUNDOWN OF CAP TYPES
Trucker cap? Baseball cap? Dad hat? Snapback? Veclro? Flexfit? Yupoong?
So many terms which can make it confusing.
Everyone has a different idea regarding the “standard” hat. So when people get in touch because they want their logo on a hat, we often have to figure out what style they actually want and need.
Whats your hat for? Is it for you? Or is this a giveaway hat?
FIRST - The cap Peak.
We always ask people - do you want a flat peak or a curved peak? Fashion and trends change, but most people these days wear curved peak. But what if you wear your hat backwards? Most backward caps wearers prefer flat peak… tough one. But i’m sure you’ll know this answer straight away.
SECOND - The hat Profile or “Depth”.
Is this headwear for you or your team? Or just for general giveaway or sale? You might have a big head like me. So you’d want a deeper high profile hat or cap.
The rule is, the higher the profile, the deeper the hat.
Low profile means its a more shallow cap. But some caps are mind profile.
There really is an option for everyone available.
Mid profile is the best option if its an event, giveaway, or promotional cap, so you will suit most people.
But thats up to you.
THIRD - The material used in the cap.
Do you want a cap that is for general use? Or do you want something that is going to be exposed to the sun often?
Cotton caps are great for general use, but they won’t withstand direct sunlight for as long as a polyester or synthetic material. If you’re wanting a cricket team hat, for example, then you want something that won’t face as quickly.
Are you Vegan? Don’t accidentally choose a wool cap!
Are you from an outdoor sporting club or in outdoor construction? Don’t choose something that will fade quickly!
Cotton is cheaper, but it fades quicker than polyester or nylon.
FOURTH - The Style.
Construction, trade services, and of course truck driver, love trucker caps like the Yupoong 6006.
Sporting clubs like baseball or cricket prefer something like something that won't fade in the sun.
A lot of bands, and of course dads, love dad caps, truckers, snapbacks... the lot.
Not sure? If we have a chat, we’ll be able to tell you what to check out.
There is also the “panel” aspect. Most caps are 6 panel or 5 panel. That is referring to how many sections the cap part (without the peak) is made up of.
6 panel caps usually have a join seam running straight down the front middle of the cap.
Whereas the 5 panel usually has a large front panel with no seam.
Did you know, direct embroidery works better on 5 panels? Because there is no seam down the front middle to interfere with the stitching of the logo.
5 panel caps are also great for logo printing, for the same reason.
FIFTH - The fastening at the back.
There are snapback, elastic flex fit backs, velcro options, as well as other adjustable styles.
The Snapback is by far the favourite because the majority of clients don’t know where this hat will end up, so they want it to have a better chance of fitting. They are the favourite OSFA - One Size Fits All - option.
FINALLY - Putting your logo on the cap or hat!
The most popular method is direct embroidery of your logo or symbol, straight onto the front of the cap.
We advise people not to go too crazy with detail, because finer details can look less than ordinary.
Direct embroidery is the cheapest option also. Because we take the hat and simply embroider the image.
How to order?
Send us a message HERE, and our art team will then be in touch to collect your artwork and provide mockups.
We can apply a print to the front of the cap - but only for 5 panel caps - as we need a flat surface with no seam in the way. Print transfers are a guaranteed way to capture high detail or colour gradients.
This is the same price as embroidery.
