Shirts In Bulk Hats FAQs

Can you print on hats?

Yes! You can have your bulk apparel hats printed by printers that print with heat press techniques using a cap press. Important things to consider when buying blank style hats wholesale to print are crown height and hat width. Ideal crown height for printing is between 1.5” and 3.5”, while the ideal hat width is 4.5”. It’s best to choose a print design that is rectangular over circular to make the biggest visual impact on a canvas area that is so compact.

What are the best hats for printing?

5-panel hats made with thicker materials like cotton, polyester and foam are best for printing. The two main printing techniques available to you are screen-printing and the heat press technique. While both are possible, you might have a harder time getting a satisfactory result from the screen printing technique due the curved nature of a hat. However, make sure you do not use the heat press technique on synthetic materials that might melt, such as acrylic. Ultimately, any of our blank ball caps and cheap beanies would do well for printing, as long as you match your printing techniques to the hat’s fabric blend and structural requirements.

Snapbacks and baseball caps have some stylistic differences. The most noticeable difference is that baseball caps have a curved bill whereas a snapback has a flat and wide bill. Furthermore, it’s common for snapback caps to have plastic closures while baseball caps can have either Velcro or metal closures. Baseball hats are often considered more “vintage” than their snapback counterparts. We have both!

Why are snapback hats so popular?

Snapbacks are most popular because of their relevance in pop-culture. They are often associated with the baseball scene, as well as the 90s hip hop and EDM scenes. They are also widely preferred due to how comfortable they are to wear and how easy they are to pull off.

A “flat-brimmed hat” is a more recent style variant of the classic baseball cap or “pre-curved hat”. Flat-brimmed hats or snapbacks are more popular with younger crowds and feature a bill that sits flat when placed down on a surface. A pre-curved hat on the other hand is preferred by older generations or those who like vintage styles over changing trends. Much like its name suggests, this type of hat features a bill that is pre-curved, and hasn’t experienced many stylistic changes to its design since the 1970s!

What is the difference between 5-panel and 6-panel hats?

Panels refer to the roughly triangular pieces of fabric that are stitched together to create the crown portion of a hat. Traditionally, baseball caps were made using 6 panels (6-panel hats). However, having 6 panels meant that there was a center seam right where a print could otherwise be placed, which is why the 5-panel hat was invented. This type of hat has 5 panels, out of which the front panel is wider and more oddly shaped than the rest. This panel becomes the perfect canvas for any image that you might want to have printed on your cap.
