So, if you’re ready to invest in baseball caps, here’s a quick guide to help you choose the right style, colour and decoration option.

Types of Embroidered Baseball Caps Styles

When shopping for embroidered baseball caps, there are two common cap styles you’ll encounter in the market.

Structured caps

Take this Adventure Cap for example. Featuring a structured 6-panel look in a two-tone design, this promotional headwear boasts a sporty and stylish appeal your target market will quickly love. For decoration, this baseball cap is available for a crown embroidery in either a flat or 3D design.

Unstructured caps

For unstructured options, this HBC Suede Peak Cap is highly recommended. Offering the perfect blend of class and style, this baseball cap is just as sporty but with a classy twist. Pre-curved sueded peak with matching suede button will beautifully complement your logo embroidery.

Velcro back fasteners

This promotional Wave Cap with cross-over Velcro fastener is suitable for your male and female customers. Available for logo embroidery or a full-colour digital print, this promotional headwear is ideal for any sporting event.

Buckle and Brass

Instead of Velcro, this HBC Brass Buckle Cap features a brass buckle and return back fastener. Adjusting the fit may not be as easy and convenient as Velcro fasteners but it’s likely a more durable option in the long run.

Print Options for Baseball Caps

Your promotional baseball cap wouldn’t do much unless your logo is clearly displayed for more people to see. For our selection of baseball caps, we generally offer three decoration types – embroidery, plastisol transfer print and full colour direct digital print.

Crown embroidery is a go-to option for most orders. You can choose between a flat and a 3D embroidery fully displayed front and centre for maximum visibility.
