Three Ways To Customize Hats & Beanies
There are three different methods we can use to apply your custom design to a hat or beanie. All three methods look great and you can’t go wrong with any option. The best method will ultimately come down to cost, design complexity, and your own style preferences.
- Embroidery: A timeless decoration method, we can use embroidery to create your design with threads. An embroidered design can be flat with the surface of the hat or we can create a 3D effect that raises your design above the surface of the cap.
- Patches: Good Ink offers four different styles of patches. We can apply your design to a hat or beanie using leather patches, woven patches, embroidered patches, or sublimated patches. Sublimated patches offer a mix of print and embroidery to be able to produce complex designs with clear detail.
- Heat Pressed Vinyl: For foam caps and five-panel hats, we can permanently apply your design with full-color vinyl.

Custom Hat & Beanie Styles
Good Ink offers hats in many different styles to help you create the perfect custom hats to meet your needs and style preferences. You can read an overview of each of the different hat styles we offer below.
Custom Trucker Hats
Trucker hats are a type of baseball cap that gained popularity in the 1980s and 1990s. They are characterized by a mesh back and a foam front panel, typically with a slightly curved bill. The front panel is often made of foam to provide a more structured and elevated look compared to regular baseball caps.
Trucker hats provide a laid-back, casual appearance. The mesh back of the hat provides airflow to keep heads cooler in hot summer weather. The curved bill also does a great job of protecting your face and eyes from the sun.
Custom Classic Dad Hats
Classic dad hats are another type of baseball cap that has a more relaxed and unstructured design compared to trucker hats. They typically have a curved bill and a soft, unstructured crown made of cotton or a similar fabric. The term “dad hat” is believed to come from the idea that these hats are often associated with a simple and timeless style that fathers (dads) might wear.
Classic dad hats are known for their comfort and versatility. They can be paired with a wide range of outfits and can provide an element of nostalgia to your overall appearance. If you want a timeless hat that will be comfortable to wear for hours at a time, then the classic dad hat is an excellent choice.
Custom Flat Bill Snapback Caps
Flat bill snapback caps are a type of baseball cap characterized by a flat, straight brim and an adjustable snapback closure. They gained popularity in the late 1980s and early 1990s, particularly within hip-hop and urban fashion scenes. The “snapback” refers to the adjustable strap on the back of the hat, which uses snaps (plastic or metal fasteners) to secure the cap to the desired size.
Flat bill snapback hats add a bold and edgy look to any outfit. It’s a great style for casual occasions and it’s one of the most popular styles for custom sports team hats. The large flat bill also does a great job of protecting your eyes and face from the sun.
Custom Boonie Sun Hats
Boonie hats, also known as bush hats or floppy hats, are wide-brimmed hats originally designed for military use that have since become popular for outdoor activities and casual wear. They were first issued to U.S. military personnel during the Vietnam War in the 1960s and were intended to provide protection from the sun and elements in hot and humid environments.
The wide brim that extends the full circumference of the crown provides protection from the sun for your face, neck, and ears. The higher level of UV protection combined with the lightweight and breathable material makes boonie hats a popular choice for outdoor activities. Boonie hats are also very portable. They can easily fold and compress to fit in bags and backpacks. If you own an outdoor company or you need hats for an outdoor event, then the boonie hat may be the right style of hat for you.
Custom Bucket Hats
Bucket hats are a type of wide-brimmed hat with a downward-sloping brim all around the crown. They are typically made of soft and flexible materials like cotton, denim, or nylon. The name “bucket hat” comes from the hat’s bucket-like shape, as it resembles an inverted bucket when laid flat. Bucket hats were originally an Irish fisherman’s hat believed to have been invented in the early 1900s. The bucket hat was first adopted as a high fashion item in the 1960s.
Like boonie hats, the wide brim of bucket hats offers sun protection for your face, neck, and ears. Bucket hats have become trendy fashion accessories in the past few years. The soft and flexible hat material makes bucket hats comfortable to wear. Bucket hats can also add an element of nostalgia to an appearance. While they’ve been around for over 100 years, some people associate bucket hats with the 90s when they were very popular with street fashion culture.
Visors are a type of headwear designed to provide shade and sun protection to the face while allowing for better ventilation and visibility compared to traditional hats. Visors are characterized by their open-top design, where the crown of the head remains uncovered, while the brim extends forward to shield the eyes and face from direct sunlight.
The lack of head covering provides more airflow while still protecting your eyes and face from the sun. Visors are commonly worn for outdoor sports like golf and tennis to prevent overheating. They’re great for individuals with longer hair or hairstyles that wouldn’t otherwise fit under a cap. Visors are also lightweight and easy to pack into bags or backpacks.
Custom Knit Beanies
Beanies are a type of hat that is typically made from soft and stretchy materials, such as wool, acrylic, or cotton. They are close-fitting and cover the head, often extending down to cover the ears and sometimes the back of the neck. Beanies are known for their snug and cozy fit, which helps retain warmth during cold weather.
Beanies are great for bad hair days because they can easily cover all of your hair. Beanies are versatile and can be worn with a wide range of outfits. They’re commonly used for outdoor winter activities. Custom beanies are a great choice for companies with employees that work in cold environments or individuals planning outdoor events in cold weather.

Custom Hat & Beanie FAQs
You’ve got questions and we’ve got answers. Below are answers to some of the most commonly asked questions we receive for our custom hats and beanies.
Are There Any Design Limitations I Should Be Aware Of?
You do not need to have a design to place an order with Good Ink. We have an in-house design team that can help you create and finalize a design for your custom hats at no cost. However, if you do have your own design, there are a few requirements you should be aware of to receive the best possible screen-printed hats.
Designs or logos should be submitted to Good Ink in AI, SVG, EPS, or PDF formats if available. We can work with JPG and PNG provided that your design has a resolution of 300 DPI or higher. Designs lower than 300 DPI will appear blurry or pixelated. We cannot assist you in printing any designs that are unlawful, harassing, obscene, threatening, or defamatory in nature. You must also own the rights to your design or have permission to reproduce the design.
Our designers can help you if you need assistance converting your files to the proper file format or the correct resolution. You can contact our team at any time for design help by filling out a contact form or by pressing the live chat button.
Can I Have A Custom Embroidered Design?
Of course! We offer custom embroidery and patches. Good Ink stocks a large library of thread colors to support logos and artwork in a wide array of colors. We can stitch embroidery flat onto apparel or we can add dimension with 3D embroidery to raise the design above the cap or beanie surface. Our custom patches can be embroidered, woven, leather, or sublimated.
Can I Order Hats With My Logo?
Yes, adding your logo to a hat or beanie is one of our specialties! We can create custom logo hats for your business with high-quality materials that will help you grow your brand and increase brand recognition. Custom logo hats are great for employee uniforms, trade show events, company outings, corporate gifts, and more.
