Baseball caps are a popular way to promote organisations and events, they get worn a lot so they offer high visibility to any branding or messages they carry and of course the fact they are worn on the head guarantees the message will be seen as others talk to the individual wearing the cap.
The modern form of baseball cap is believed to have been around since the 1940′s though other forms have been around longer. Originally made as a fitted cap, these days most are made with an adjustment strap so as to fit most head sizes.
Modern forms of baseball cap include the “truckers cap” a type often used for promotional purposes.
If you are considering using baseball caps for promotions there are some factors to consider before you go looking for quotations.
They should be made from quality materials to ensure they are durable and will be worn repeatedly. A durable cap can be worn for years so it guarantees your message or logo will be seen many times over which is the whole point of using promotional baseball caps after all! This kind of repeated exposure for your brand is what makes this form of advertising so effective and valuable.
There are many ways to decorate caps, from embroidery and embossing to printing and badging. A specialist will help you decide which option is best for your particular needs.
Keeping overall costs in check can be helped by planning in advance, keeping the designs simple and of course ordering in bulk as the larger the order the lower the unit cost.
Designs can be pretty much anything that will fit but there are some guidelines you might like to bear in mind;
Put into words what it is you are trying to achieve with your promotion, designers are quite skilled at interpreting your ideas and transforming them to a memorable design or slogan.
Think about the colours you already use in any corporate promotional material and business cards. Your designer will probably want to know your PMS references if you already know them.
Similarly, give your designer copies of any logos, artwork or other promotional material so they can match up as much as you might need. It is also a good idea to let them know of any good examples from other companies that have impressed you so they can get a good idea of what features appeal to you.
There are lots of promotional products that can be used to promote a business and baseball caps are a great choice. There is nothing better than seeing your brand walking around!
