We offer several unique hat styles to choose from to offer on your campaign. You can learn more specifics about the styles of hats in our Product Catalog.
All styles of hats offered at Bonfire are embroidered. Embroidery is an intricate process, and certain guidelines should be followed to ensure the best result. Most of the time, taking the same design that can be printed on a tee and making it embroidery will NOT work. Photographic images aren't embroidable.
Embroidery looks best with large, solid designs with thick lines and fonts.
Embroidery Quick Tips
Less is more
Stick to solid colors and shapes
Avoid details and intricate designs
Stitches must be 2mm or larger
The color limit is 6 colors - complicated color palettes and full-color designs cannot be executed
Make your design pop by embroidering dark designs on bright garments and vice versa
Graphic effects such as gradients, shading, distressed textures, transparencies, glows and blur cannot be executed through embroidery
Embroidery is a labor-intensive process that requires extra time to execute. Printed items are typically done within 5 business days, and embroidered items may take 7-10 business days
Guidelines for all Embroidery
Use Large Text
Text should be .25in or higher
Capitals work best
Drop shadow/outlines cannot be used on any text that is less than .5in
Shapes should be larger than .05in
Use Thick lines
Line weight must be a min of 3pt
Limit negative space
To avoid pinched and scrunched fabric, fill negative space with a solid color like black or white
If negative space must be part of the design, it can’t be under .2in
