Custom embroidery is a popular design option for all of ARES Sportswear’s Headwear!
All of us at ARES Sportswear understand just how important headwear is for your team’s custom apparel campaign, because players, coaches and parents alike all love repping their team through a cool hat!
Although there are plenty of headwear design options, the most popular design is custom embroidery. An embroidered logo always looks incredible on any style of headwear, and a lot of our clients ask us about which types of hats would work best for them and their unique colors and team style.
What we’ve done within this article is compile five of the most popular hat styles that work great with custom embroidery, so here’s everything you need to know when trying to choose the right type of hat for you and your group!
Six Panel Caps
Six panel caps are the type of hat that we generally consider to be “baseball caps”, and this style has been around since 1934 and is still very popular today!
Six panel caps are made with six different cloth triangles that extend to the top of the hat in an umbrella style, so these well-rounded caps look good on everyone. Custom embroidery for all sorts of images, names and team logos also read well and look great on six panel caps. We provide both fitted and stretch-to-fit six panels that will provide you and your team with a tailored look both on and off the field.
Some of our most popular six panel caps include:
- Alleson Six Panel Baseball Cap, $4.99 ea.*
- Alleson Youth Six Panel Baseball Cap, $4.99 ea.*
- Pacific Headwear Vintage Buckle Strap Adjustable Cap, $6.49 ea.*
- Sport-Tek Dry Zone Nylon Colorblock Cap, $6.99 ea.*
- New Era Stretch Mesh Cap, $9.99 ea.*And much more!
Five Panel Caps
Five panel caps are more modern as compared to six panel caps, and this hat style got popular in the 1990s because it allowed for a larger design area. So instead of six fabric pieces, these hats will entail five pieces of fabric with no front seam.
Five panel caps are widely popular in both bent brim and flat brim styles, and these hats tend to be more cutting-edge from a fashion standpoint. So if you feel like your team is most style-conscious, then consider getting five panel caps and utilizing our custom embroidery specialists to design something special. Five panels are known for providing more complex designs and logos, and you can count on our team to make your custom design look fantastic!
Some of our most popular five panel cap options include:
- Augusta Flat Bill Cap, $10.99 ea.*
- Under Armour Chino Adjustable Cap, $17.49 ea.*
- And much more!
Trucker caps are essentially five panel caps with a mesh back and stiffer foam front panel, and these hats have grown tremendously in popularity in recent years for many different reasons.
Trucker caps provide a unique style for any sports team, school group or business. What’s also great about trucker hats is that they’re very affordable and provide a lot of room for design possibilities.
These days trucker caps are a fashion statement, and custom embroidery just so happens to be an awesome finishing touch to this cutting-edge style. Some of our most popular trucker hats include:
