5 Basic Types of Hats for You to Customize

5 Basic Types of Hats for You to Customize

Posted by The Hat Pros on 9th Sep 2019

Anyone can rock a hat but it takes a special kind of person to rock a customized one. Whether it’s bringing your design to life or to promote your brand, customizing your hat is a unique and creative way to show the world who you are.

Not sure which types of hats to use? Read on for the five types of hats to customize.

1. The Snapback

Snapbacks are both sporty and casual meaning they’re one of the best hat types for a unique embroidery design or print. This style of hat has a long flat bill and comes in many materials from faux leather to cotton.

2. Trucker Hat

The trucker hat began as a promotional giveaway item from feed stores and farming supply companies. Companies would give the hats away to truck drivers and other rural workers to help advertise their brand. Trucker hats have a mesh panel on the back and plenty of space on the front for your favorite artwork. You can also customize the back with a fitted, snapback or velcro hat closure.

3. Five-Panel

A five-panel is one of the more laid back types of hat, perfect for hitting the bar or chilling out. This cap is made of five individual pieces of material (go figure!) which makes it a tight-fitting and stylish hat.

These hats made their first appearance in the early part of the 20th century, as they were worn by courier boys. Fast-forward to the ‘80s’ and five-panel hats soared in popularity thanks to the edgy London and Berlin club scene. Even if you’re not a party animal, a custom five-panel cap makes a great blank canvas for your artwork or to show off your company’s logo.

4. Baseball Hat

Out of all the types of caps, a baseball hat has been around since 1849. Not only are baseball hats the perfect way to top off a sporty look, but also a great way to unify your team. Why not get your team’s logo printed on it to show the world who you’re rooting for?

5. Dad Hat

You’ve seen Dad Hats blowing up on Instagram and this is one of the different hat styles that will never die out. This model is less structured than other hat styles and has a standard bill or a short bill length option depending on your preference. Find a design you love and get it embellished on a Dad Hat for an ultra-cool look.

Out of All the Different Types of Hat, Which Is Your Favorite?

Luckily there are many types of hats depending on your mood, style, and whether it aligns with your brand. Choosing the right hat is important especially if you’re sporting your company’s logo or representing a team so pick wisely. Happy hat hunting!
