As the temperatures continue to soar, it’s time to break out the summer headwear! And what better way to keep cool and stylish in that record heat than with the perfect custom hat?
Finding the perfect style and materials for your custom hat can be a daunting task, but don’t worry, we at CapBeast are here to help! Keep reading for the best tips on how to style and care for your custom hats this summer.
For the best results, start with a clean base: make sure your hair is clean and free of any product build-up. This will help your custom hat sit better and last longer. If you have long hair, consider putting it up in a bun or ponytail to keep it off your neck.
Next, choose the right hat for the occasion. A snapback or fitted cap is perfect for a day spent outdoors, while a dad hat or visor is ideal for a more relaxed look. And if you really want to make a statement, go for a custom-embroidered or printed design like those available at CapBeast.
Before we dive into the best custom hats for summer, let’s first take a look at the process of creating one. Custom hats are made using a variety of methods, depending on the design and materials involved.
Another popular method is printing, which allows for more complex designs and colors. This can be done with either screen printing or sublimation, depending on the type of fabric used.
Finally, some custom hats are made using appliqués or patches. This is a great option if you want to add an embroidered design without the added cost.
Here are some steps to follow:
Choosing the right canvas is the first step. The most common options are baseball caps, dad hats, and snapbacks.
The best way to choose the right canvas is to think about the occasion or activity you’ll be wearing it for. A baseball cap is perfect for a day spent outdoors, while a dad hat or visor is ideal for a more relaxed look.
If you’re not sure which style to choose, consider going for a classic like a black or white baseball cap. You can’t go wrong with these timeless options!
Add a logo or text
This is where your creative touch comes in. You can add a logo, text, or design to your custom hat.
What hat and canvas you choose should inform what design you can use or vice versa. A large company logo with bold colors needs a large canvas like those of a six-paneled snapback. It can truly make the custom embroidery pop. Hats that do not provide a large canvas in the front are perhaps more logical for embroidered text.
Selecting the right custom hat
When choosing the hat to customize, you need to pinpoint the purpose of the hat. Is it:
- For your company?
- A gift?
- For personal use?
- For a specific activity or sport?
- To create a unique look to separate you from the pack?
