Let us create custom made trucker hats for your business.
Screen Printed Trucker Hats
Custom screen printed trucker hats are great hats to promote your message. Not all hats work well with screen printing but the trucker is one that has a great surface for printing directly onto the crown. We print these hats by hand on a manual screen press. We believe that Direct screen printing is better than plastisol or vinyl transfers because there will be no heat mark left from the heat press. However, in some situations using transfers is a great option especially when you want oversized letters on the front.
Trucker Hats With Embroidery
There are many ways to customize your trucker hat. One of our favorite ways to add a logo onto custom trucker hats is screen printing on the front crown. Both the foam front and canvas front hats can be screen printed. We can even screenprint on the underside of the hat bill for added detail. Embroidery adds a feel of extra quality especially when applied to the canvas front trucker hats. With embroidery we can do custom trucker hats with no minimum. Another great technique is to add a patch onto the front of a custom trucker hat. A patch adds even more value to your logo trucker hats. The extra patches can also be applied to other garments that we offer.

Trucker Hat Origin
The Trucker has an interesting history and is now an iconic hat style in the US and around the world. Trucker hats were originally worn by Truck Drivers who would get them for free at truck stops. They would wear them while driving across the US. But nothing is for free right? The drivers were advertising the companies that were emblazoned on the crowns. Feed and Farm supply stores would also give them away to farmers and ranchers who found the hats great for working outdoors. The open mesh allowed their heads to stay cool while working and the visor kept the sun off of their faces.
As the Trucker cap became a staple of rural working America the hats found their way into vintage stores. Over time they became a symbol of blue collar and hard working Americans. Eventually the trucker cap style was popularized by skaters, surfers and snowboarders. And later on musicians like Pharrel Williams and Justin Timberlake would wear them. Von Dutch, a clothing company in the late 1990’s re-popularized the trucker hats by using artwork from the famous subculture artist Von Dutch. An artist who was famous for pinstriping designs on hot rods.
Mesh Hats & Mesh Trucker Hats
Mesh hats still remain popular because of the cool iconic look and also because it helps keep your head cool while you work. There are many options for embellishing these mesh hats. Mesh hats are versatile when it comes to adding your logo or design. The foam or canvas fronts can be screen printed or embroidered and even a custom patch can be applied to the front crown.
