WHICH CUSTOM HOODIE IS RIGHT FOR ME?

The Top 5 Most Popular Caps for Custom EmbroideryOur customers are often asking us about the difference between cap styles—which ones are the most popular and which ones look best with a custom embroidered design. Per your request, here are the top 5 most popular custom embroidered caps we sell along with everything you need to know to choose right one for your group. Six Panel Caps Six panel caps are what most of us think of when we think of “baseball caps.” New Era introduced these iconic six panel caps back in 1934 and they still make them today. Made from 6 cloth triangles (hence the name) that extend from the top of your head umbrella style, these rounded caps look great on nearly everyone. Custom embroidered logos, images and/or names on the front of the cap look great and read well. Fitted or stretch-to-fit caps will give your custom cap a more tailored look, but have the drawback of adding a sizing element to your order. For one-size-fits all custom embroidered caps, choose caps with an adjustable closure. Choose from hook and loop (Velcro®), snap, and adjustable clasp closure options. The quality of the closure greatly affects the cost, fit and perceived value of the caps. If you’re buying hats for a sports team or business team, the six-panel cap is a solid choice that will please nearly everyone. Five Panel Caps Five panel caps were created in the 1990s to offer customers a larger unobstructed decoration area. As the name implies, 5-panel hats are made of five fabric pieces instead of six, so there is no front seam. Five panels come in both flat brim and bent brim styles. Flat brim versions lend a more street-smart look. The trendiest flat-bill styles also have a higher front profile. Five-panel flat bill caps are more cutting-edge in terms of fashion, so if your group is young and style-conscious, choose a 5-panel cap for your custom embroidered caps. Five panels are also great for embroidering larger, complex logos or designs. Trucker Caps Pair the five-panel-cap with a mesh back and a stiffer foam front panel, and you have for what is commonly referred to as a trucker style cap. The name “trucker cap” first took hold when farming supply companies began giving away these relatively low-cost caps to truck drivers and farmhands as a way of raising brand awareness. Today, trucker caps have become a fashion statement. Choose custom embroidered or screen-printed trucker hats if you are looking for both value and cutting edge style. Snap Backs Snap back caps come in both 5 and 6 panels styles. They fit different size heads thanks to the addition of an adjustable snap closure on the back. These caps have come back into style in a big way and can be worn either forward or backward. See my previous blog for how to wear a custom snap back cap stylishly.Dad Hats Dad hats are typically looser fitting, six panel caps made from canvas or cotton. The current “dad hat” trend calls for a slightly curved brim. The dad hat name comes from (no brainer here) dads over the past decades who have chosen to wear comfy caps. Now it’s a fashion statement.Author: Amber Barz
I have been trying to figure out now for years why Pantone chooses the colors that they do for color of the year. This year, they chose to blend two colors to create 1. What the heck?! I only care about the colors that they choose because sometimes, they can be an indicator of which t-shirts or screen printing inks are going to be popular in 2016. This year, yeah not so much. I have included my personal list of why I don’t think these colors are going to be very popular in the custom t-shirt printing market.The colors are just plain ugly. Who likes these colors?! They are not very masculine if that’s your kind of thing, and they are not super feminine either. They just seem like old lady colors to me. I suppose in today era, they might consider a something with those colors together, like a couch, to be called shabby chic. But seriously, who would want to put this in their house? Yes, I agree, perhaps my grandma or a southern bell lady. That narrows the market down for those colors quite a bit.A sophisticated name doesn’t make it a more sophisticated color. Does anyone else see baby blue and pink here? If I call Baby Pink by Rose Quartz instead…does it transform it into a new color? I’m sure some psychology experts would argue that yes it does, my eye argues that no it doesn’t. I took a quick look and did some filtering to find some of the blanks we offer. I thought it might be fun to compare what these are “normally” called out in the world today. Here are the garment choices available. Every. Single. One. Of these garments below is called light blue or light pink. LOL.Light Blue & Light Pink are just not popular for screen printing or custom t-shirt printing. We print thousands of shirts each day, work with all sorts of different companies/teams/clubs, and very rarely sell these garment colors or ink colors. Sometimes customers ask for obscure things like a deep berry hoodie. When I can’t find it ANYWHERE from the over 25,000 garments we offer, I assume no one carries it because well…..no one would buy them. In my search of the list above, I came up with 20 out of over 2,000 garment choices in just that one catalog. I checked with my production manager to see how much baby pink and baby blue we buy – hardly any! Check out our Screen Printing Sample Page and you’re not going to find much of those two colors.There are so many more beautiful options! Check out or silk screen ink color options, I’ll bet your favorite isn’t light pink or blue. Personally, I am not a fan of pastel anything. I like rich pinks like helconia or super fuschia and rich blues like royal. Our number one selling shirt is the Gildan 2000, look at those colors and I am certain you fill find something preferable.Now, if you are a fan of light pink and light blue…oops I mean Rose Quartz and Serenity, then by all means, we’ve got the perfect ink color or garment color for you! But if you are not, don’t worry, we have thousands of garments to choose from and a screen printing ink color that will better suit your needs. Whether you want to customize a single shirt or a bulk batch, the most important thing to us at Broken Arrow is that you love your finished product – color and all!Author: Kortni Remer
