Or sometimes you see a tagline or some other information embroidered on the bill of a cap. When done right, embroidering on the bill of a cap is a very effective tool to draw attention to your brand. And it offers another palate onto which someone can highlight their art or their logo.
We often times get customers asking us if we can put their logo or some other design on the bill of a cap. It is a good question.
In order to get an embroidered logo or design on the bill of a cap, it must be done during the manufacturing process of the cap. The design is first embroidered on the piece of material that will then end up over the bill of the cap. Then the material is stretched over the bill of the cap and attached to the crown to make the cap.
Essentially what is created is a custom cap. In order to create a custom cap like that during the manufacturing process there is a minimum quantity required for that order. Often times that minimum quantity is in the hundreds of pieces. Therefore, it is generally not economically feasible for many companies to order that many caps.
At Thread Logic, we only embroider onto finished caps-caps that are already made. That significantly reduces the cost of the cap and allows customers to order a smaller quantity at a reasonable price.
One might ask why we can’t embroider directly onto the bill. Good question. The bill of a cap is a generally made of a piece of plastic or cardboard which creates the shape. It is impossible to get a needle used for embroidery through that piece of plastic or thick cardboard. They just weren’t made to penetrate that kind of material.
As you can see, embroidering some kind of design onto the bill of a cap is more complicated that you might think when first seeing it. Obviously, if you are interested in a larger quantity order, it can be done.
