Most people get scared when they see the fabric contents of beanies. Even though this beanie is 100% acrylic, decorating has never been easier thanks to the 360 IQ Hat Press. Having two separate controls for top and lower heat equals the perfect adhesive bond for heat sensitive fabrics. Try something like embroidered patches that pair perfectly with this hat style.

Snapback Trucker Hat

In addition to acrylic, this trucker hat is also made up of heat-sensitive materials. Made of 100% polyester foam, this hat could potentially be a scorching nightmare on a standard hat press. But with the right equipment, lower temp application, and materials, decorating these types of hats is possible. For the trucker style hat, pair it with one of our leather patch options for a rugged, yet refined look your customers will love.

6-Panel Structured

Fear center seams, no more! This classic hat style is a staple in hat decoration. If any of you are experienced heat printers, you are probably aware that usually when seams are involved you would want to use a heat printing pillow. Because of the lower heating element on this new hat press, it can heat the hat from underneath and create an adhesive bond. The foam cover pads that come with this hat press are also key to protecting any emblem or patch from the top heating element. We love our FlexStyle emblems paired with this hat style to give your hats a high-end dimensional look.

Now more than ever, the safety market has been growing. Visibility is key when it comes to decorating hats for safety workers. Did you know that the new hat press still works seamlessly with our 1-color HTV products? In addition to all of our emblems and patches, you can use some of our tried-and-true materials such as CAD-CUT® 3M™ Scotchlite™ 5807 to achieve a look that stands out and gets people noticed.
