If you’ve never created a custom piece of clothing, you should try it as soon as possible!
There are so many reasons for this. First and foremost, you’re able to put a personal stamp on a shirt, hat or something else. You can also use it as a promotional material; many companies are putting their logo on hats as a way of promoting their business. But besides that, it is also a good way to create a unique piece of clothing. You don’t have to buy shits and hats that are in the stores but instead, you can create a thing that will be ideal for you.
When making a custom embroided or printed hat, there are several things to know. The process is pretty straightforward so you likely won’t have any issues with it. However, it is much better to be safe than sorry! Here are some tips that will help you out!
- Deciding on size and sex
While hats are pretty awesome in a sense that you can easily adjust them, it is still important to choose a hat according to your head size. This first step is something that can make or break your purchase forcing you to return the product before using it. Similarly, you will have to mention whether it’s for a man or a woman. Most online stores have the option of marking this so you will be able to choose just the right item according to your needs.
- Choosing the type of hat
You always have to keep in mind there are various types of hat on the market. You will have to choose wisely and pick the one that suits your persona. Of course, you can also try to go with a new pattern or design; it is always nice experimenting! However, don’t be hasty during this step. Certain types of hats may look similar but they feel and look very differently. So, make sure to get the one that is best for you.
- Finding the right color patterns
Color can be a problem for some people. The main issue is the fact that most companies have a limited choice of colors. So, in most cases, you will have to choose from about 10 different colors. There is a good chance you won’t find the right nuance for you. Furthermore, color choice is one of the most important aspect of custom hat creation. If you cannot find the right color, it can mess up the rest of the project affecting how your image (or logo) looks like. Ideally, you should go with contrasting colors.
- Image creation
There are lots of different ways you can approach image creation. For example, some people like to draw their own images. You can also find a lot of different ideas online. Of course, you are free to use your company’s logo if you’re going for a commercial variant. Anyway, image is the centerpiece of your hat. Everything revolves around it so in some cases, it might be the first thing you consider when creating a hat. The color has to match the overall pattern so make sure to plan ahead.
- Additional texts
Some people like having texts on their hats; some don’t. No matter which group you belong to, you have to admit that a well-placed text can totally change the appearance of a hat (or any other custom clothing item). They can really be impactful if you use them properly. However, in some cases, they can be an overkill which is why you have to be very careful when implementing them to the overall design.
