Deciding On A Cap Design

  • Sep 12, 2019

Caps appeal to many fans and followers, and with this guide, a brand can pick out the best option for showing off their name and logo.


Already, a good number of people wear caps on a regular basis. Therefore, this is a go-to item for businesses and organizations looking to equip their target audience with freebies, goodies and branded merchandise.


With so many choices, though, how can someone decide on the right type of hat and design to offer? 


With this guide, the choices are all broken down and discussed:


Embroidery: This traditional method digitizes artwork so that it can be stitched onto a hat. 

Sublimated Patches: For more complicated artwork, this is the way to go, as this tactic can recreate nearly any design.

Laser-Etched Patches: Here, heat and faux suede are used to attach a precise and detailed design, created with laser technology.

Hat Tattoo: With a tattoo, super detailed designs can be printed nearly anywhere on a cap. 

Retro Patch: This method also involves digitizing and stitching a design onto a cap.

3-D Flex: This tactic uses patches made from flexible plastic that is put onto caps using heat and that results in a durable and vivid design. 

Heat Transfer: Here, graphics are applied using heat, and since they are printed, not sewn, there is lots of versatility with this option. 

Color Seal: With this option, appliques are sewn onto hats. 

Triple D: Direct dimensional design offers a full-color sublimated overlay that is printed directly onto thread, for a patch effect.

After deciding on a design technique and the perfect cap, a brand can promote themselves in a very stylish and effective way. See Paramount Apparel's collection below, and for more choices, visit Libation Promotions.
