Branding on Caps: What you NEED to know
The most common methods of branding caps is a digital transfer, embroidery, embroidered badge and even laser engraving on some fabrics. Screen printing is possible on caps without a front seam.
Screen print: This method is ideal for caps without a front seam i.e. trucker cap, military style cap & 5-panel caps. Good for solid areas of colour. Close PMS matches are possible on white or light coloured caps.
Digital transfers: Used for branding fabrics this method produces crisp, clear artwork reproduction even on textured fabrics. It has a matt finish and will not crack or fade under normal circumstances. It is a cost-effective method for producing spot colour or full-colour transfers on caps.
Embroidery: This is the most common branding option for caps. It has a higher perceived value and a depth of branding quality which other processes cannot match. Embroidery uses rayon thread stitched into the product which gives the finished image a slightly raised effect. An embroidered badge is also an option.
Laser engrave: Produces a permanent natural finish that becomes part of the surface. It has a higher perceived value than other forms of branding. However, different materials produce different effects when engraved so to avoid uncertainty pre-production samples are recommended.
