Printed transfers are a fantastic option for putting a full colour printed looking logo on a hat. Note that these transfers cannot go over seams so they are best on 5 panel hats, and foam trucker hats.
Sublimated transfers are the ultimate decoration method for a vintage looking foam trucker hat. The ink is transferred into the fabric as opposed to onto it so there is no added bulky look or feel to them! Note that these transfers can only be applied to 100% polyester foam hats.
