Richardson 634 Fitted Hats With Patches

Once you’ve created your design, it's time to add some flair. Adding a rubber patches to fitted hats are just the right fit! The patches are made with layers of colored rubber that will give the final product an impressive 3D effect and allow for crisp color separation in any environment!

There is no set standard on what size patches should be used as each hat size is different from other hats, but the best overall size for a patch on a hat is anywhere between 2 to 2.25 inches tall. The width will be proportional to the overall shape of your design. To calculate a patch size you need to know the largest width of your desired patches so that we have an accurate calculation: add up the highest point on both sides then divide by two! This will give us our final patch size! Another option to using a patch is with direct embroidery where you can go up to 5" wide by 3" tall.

The answer to this question depends heavily on your logo. Simple designs can be embroidered, printed or made from leather or PVC while more complicated designs may need to use printing techniques like sublimation in full-color or be woven.  

The cost of a custom patch hat varies depending on the brand and quantity you would like to order. For example, if you need to order 36 Richardson 112 Hats, then that will cost about $21 per hat. Where as 150 hats would only cost $15.00 per hat. The pricing will include a custom patch sewn directly to the hats. Adhesive is used on custom shaped patches that follow the outline of your logo.

Patches are typically sewn directly onto a hat using the same style sewing machines cobblers use. They will need to have a heavy-duty needle especially when applying a leather patch to a hat. Hats in general have an unusual shape and custom shaped patch designs will need to be heat pressed with adhesive as it is too difficult to follow the border of an intricate logo using needle and thread.

The best hat brands for companies to use are these top manufactures as they keep good inventory levels and are available through nationwide distribution. This is important when ordering as the style you choose, maybe sold out in one location but available elsewhere.

Sublimated Designs for Caps

The process of sublimation involves transferring dye to fabric by using heat. They are a great way to add a lot of detail and color to your logo and allow you to perfectly recreate things like a logo, emblem, or insignia.

To create a sublimated patch, the graphic is first printed onto a special transfer paper. When heat is applied, the dye sticks to the patch, creating a perfect image on the patch itself. From there, the patch is attached to your hat to create the final promotional product. Because the patch is printed on to a hat directly, it’s the perfect method when you want to add small details, thin lines, or tiny text. You can also choose from our endless colorful shades to make a vivid image that either complements or contrasts with the base color of a baseball cap or custom dad hat.
