Follow these simple steps listed below:

Step #1 – Choose Hat Design
Choose a hat design and colour that compliments your logo, company branding, target market or event.  You should also consider how the hat will be used.  For those who will be spending a lot of time outdoors we recommend using a Polyester fabric as it does not fade as fast in hot or sunny conditions as a cotton hat.  

Step #2 – Imprint Design
It all starts with your design.  Having a crisp well laid out design is key.  Having too much colour or detail may not work well with embroidery (ie. gradients, small text, PMS colours, small line work).  You will need to submit your logo in a high resolution (.EPS file) to get exact pricing of how much your hat decoration will cost per piece.

Step #3 – Get a Virtual Proof
Once you have chosen the hat you’d like, email us (sales@anythingprinting.ca) with the hat item number and your design.  We will create a virtual proof so you can see what your branding will look on the hat.  This step allows you to update any changes you’d like before your hats go into production.

Step #4 – Digitize Your Design File
Your design must be converted to digitized file (.DST) to determine the thread count needed to embroider your logo.  Your logo only needs to be digitized once.  The great thing about having a .DST is that it will work to print your logo on both hats and apparel you order in the future.

Step #5 – Place your order!
Once you approve your virtual proof then only steps left are to digitize your logo and get your hats into production.  Please allow 7-10 days to receive your hats after final approval.  At peak seasons in the year it can sometimes take up to 3 weeks to receive your hats.  In this case you will be notified at the time you place your order.
