Options & FAQ's

The most frequently asked questions regarding our company and products.

Additional Embroidery Locations

Adding additional embroidery can be done in multiple locations and is charged by the number of stitches. A typical embroidered design on the back of a hat can range between $3.25 to $6.00.

Rush Orders

Due to the unpredictale nature of custom hat production, we are not currently offering rush orders. Standard production time is around 4 to 5 weeks. It will take a few weeks to produce the patches and have them shipped to our hat attachment facility, and another week or so to get everything attached and shipped out. After factoring in artwork and shipping we typically end right at 4 weeks.

Samples With Your Logo

We offer digital mockups for all orders to show you exactly what the final product will look like. We also have the ability to produce pre production samples, which would give you a chance to see a fully produced hat with your logo on it. Please contact us for additional information on this process.

Choosing More Than One Hat Style

Minimums start at 24 pieces per hat style and patch design, and 12 per color. If you would like to purchase multiple hat styles it is as simple as adding the desired hats to your cart.

Patch Size

For most hats we recommend a maximum patch size of 2.5" in height by 3.75" in width. PVC and leather patches tend to be a bit stiffer and do not bend to the curve of the hat as well, so we may recommend something smaller in size. Once you are connected with our graphic design team, they can help make size suggestions and provide digital mockups for reference.
