Frequently Asked Questions

Whether you're looking for an embroidered design or a custom patch, we'll make sure your design stands out. Our standard patch sizing falls between 2" and 2.25" tall depending on the hat and a with the width adjusted according to its proportions. Start by measuring up both sides and divide them by two for the actual patch size. If you opt for direct embroidery, your logo can be up to 4.5" wide by 3” tall - the perfect size to fit almost any cap or hat perfectly.

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

The regular price for 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 each. In contrast, 150 hats would only cost $15.00 per hat. The pricing will include a custom patch sewn directly to the hats. Adhesive can be used on custom shapes that follow the outline of your logo.

Hat patches are typically sewn directly onto a hat using industrial sewing machines similar to what a cobbler might use. A heavy-duty needle is used with the thread color of your choosing. Applying velcro to the back of a patch is done with the same sewing machines if you choose this option. With some hats having an unusual outline, the patch can be heat pressed and also stitched if the shape is not too difficult to follow the border.

It's no secret that the best hat brands for companies to use are these top manufacturers. These keep good inventory levels, and because they're available through nationwide distribution, you can bet your bottom dollar there'll be a wide variety of colors to select from!
