Why would you ever buy a hat that isn’t according to your desires? In fact, why would you buy a ready-made product when you create your own?

Custom caps are just one among many customizable items that you can create with minimal effort. Create a cap that says more about you or your brand. Or, create something that will feel special and unique. Stop buying generic items that will make you feel the same like thousands of other people. Instead, create something that will scream you!

Here is a step-by-step guide that will help you create your first custom cap. Read on!



Pick the right type of a cap



First, you should start by choosing the right cap type. This will be the basis for your design and will likely impact how the finished item looks like. Most custom cap companies have cap types visibly displayed within a store. You won’t have to browse too much as you can quickly find what you’re looking for.



Choose the right color scheme



Color is every bit as important as the hat design. It creates the right background where you will place your logo, image or company log. No matter what, make sure to find a color that will match well with it but also, show your persona in the right way. Most custom hat companies offer a limited number of colors: for example, from 8 to 12. In most cases, these will be the basic colors. You might think that you will need more than that for a base but in most cases, this will be more than enough.



Add an image or a logo



Image or logo should be the centerpiece of a hat. Everything else is interchangeable and even if you manage to create a nice color combination, it still comes down to image that you will be using. In the end, this is the reason why you decided to make a custom hat in the first place, right? Sites that sell custom hats usually have their own designers so you can rely your wishes to them as they will surely oblige. Alternatively, you can draw or create your own logo or image and pass it to the company.


Adding text

People are usually divided when it comes to text. Some people will focus on image while the rest will just want to have a text on their hat. Of course, you can also have a combination of the two. Text can also be created in a specific color. You can go for brand’s colors or a color that will go well with your logo or basic scheme. This part is really easy. When you land on hat company’s site, all you have to do is choose font and what will say on your hat. Also, don’t forget to choose the position where it will be placed.



Finishing touches



When everything is said and done, you need to make sure that your design is flawless. There is no need to rush; take your time as your design will remain stored on site. Once you’re certain this is what you want, all you need to do is add to cart and finish the payment. Shipping for custom hats is usually very fast so you won’t have to wait too much for the finished product. Keep in mind that creating a custom hat is an experience in itself. It can be really fun and if you like to draw and create your own images, it can be an amazing way to express yourself!
