Hats ordered through Bonfire are embroidered rather than printed, because of this, designs with extremely fine detail do not embroider well. For this reason, hat designs go through a unique review and proofing process.

If you submit a hat design with us, you can expect to receive some communication from our art department. They will review the design, modify, and then send a proof for your final approval.

Before Submitting

See the guide below for the best chance that your design will fit within our embroidery guidelines:

*Note that the printable area dimensions on the physical product are : 4”w x 2.25”h 

For the best outcome, we suggest using designs that are bold and simple like the example below:

If you already received a custom hat from us and it didn’t come out looking the way you wanted, see Returns, Refunds and Exchanges. We’ll be very happy to help find a solution.
