Hit a home run this season with fitted and baseball caps that offer an easy way to advertise on the altar of celebrity athletic finery. What better way to boost your brand that with a sensibility that’s culturally pervasive among all walks of life, amongst the artless average joes and those dressed-to-kill socialites?!

With your trusty baseball cap, you’ve endless options in terms of material, colour and style, so choose wisely for your brand’s aesthetic.
But don’t make the mistake of purchasing ready-made stock straight off the shelf. Not only is off-the-shelf stock expensive, but it can also be limiting in terms of branding techniques. So, personalise your baseball cap sensibly by customising each and every detail at wholesale price. Think felt appliques and patches, 3D embroidery and woven tags.

Long has the visor served to be associated with practically than it has with aesthetics, but an era of athleisure has spawned yet another must-have addition to your Summer wardrobe. Fashion forward brands are pioneering this topper by steering clear of what was once a look only tourists and tennis players could sport.
And with the upsurge of social-media-circulated sporting and athletic events, 2018 is the year to capitalise on the trends of the young and physically active. Embroidery and foil prints are the forerunners in custom logo designs for visors, with their marginal surface area best kept a minimalist canvas of brand awareness. Remember, simplicity is an unwritten rule in forging something emblematic about a logo.

There are few accessories the fashion elite love to hate more than the classic trucker hat; but take heart, there are many reasons as to why this working-class embodiment of suburbia is every wholesaler’s dream. Long has the coveted trucker trend served as a promotional giveaway opportunity for even the most unlikely brands.
Custom embroidered, embossed or printed trucker hats are a great tool to use in promotional marketing for your business. With their comfortable foam padding and airy mesh back, these hats serves as the ultimate bang for your buck as far as merchandise goes. But as with any great accessory, not all styles are created equal, and one should steer clear of any applications or logo designs that fail to offer a juxtaposition of imagery. Now folks, there’s nothing ironic about an out-of-date design upon a historically roughneck hat; ain’t that the truth!
