If you want to keep your business on trend, hat patches are the way to go. It's our favorite decoration option right now and a huge hit with our custom customers.

From contractors to movers to coffee shops to realtors to schools, if you're looking for a clean, professional, stylish look, patches can't be beat. 

Patches are the perfect look for both custom beanies and caps. We offer a wide variety of beanies and caps to top off your custom order.

The two most common patches that we apply to hats are woven and embroidered patches. The photos on this post show examples of embroidered patches. We use our embroidery machine to apply these to the hat or garment.

Patches Are Our Most Popular Retail Trend

Last summer we rolled out a line of apparel with patches with Midwest and Ohio themes. They were a huge hit.

Just like our embroidered crew sweatshirts, it's a look that a lot of people want for their company or brand. 

Ever since our retail launch, we've been adding patches to apparel for our custom clients on a weekly basis.

The Versatility of Patches Make Them Great

As we have shown in our retail brand, patches look good on a number of apparel items.

While we most commonly embroider them on hats and beanies, we receive a lot of requests to put them on sweatshirts, hoodies, zip ups, bags, and jackets.

The minimum patch order is 50 patches. Since the sew file is the same regardless of the item we're putting it on, you can mix and match styles all you want. 

Custom Patch Hat Examples and Design Ideas

Custom hats have always been a popular item for our customers.

We can help you with any style patch that fits your brand - from custom embroidered patches to leather patches to woven patches.

Here are examples of custom patch hats that we've made for our customers and might inspire design ideas for your brand. 

Acoustics for Autism Trucker Hats

Acoustics for Autism is one of our favorite charity events in the Toledo area. 

Held at the Village Idiot in Maumee, they put together one of the largest crowds around for an event that supports people and families affected by autism.

In 2022 this event raised $450,000!

We're honored to play a small part in the success of this event by providing their branded merch - from shirts to hoodies to beanies to hats.

Souk Mediterranean Leather Patch Hats

Souk is one of downtown Toledo's most popular restaurants. 

They came to us with a challenge. They wanted a small run of different hat styles with different patches. 

They chose the Richardson 112 which is one of the most popular and best fitting trucker hats on the market. We were able to put together a run of 12 hats each. 

It's always a great idea, when you can, to start small. It allows you to test your market to judge interest before spending more money on merch that doesn't sell. 

We love the combination of these trucker hats with the leather patch. Souk has a great logo and chose great colors and designs.

JUPMODE is our go-to place for all of our customized apparel needs. They are great to work with - they communicate quickly, frequently, and clearly to make sure we get just what we need. We've had simple orders and really complicated ones that they even helped with graphic design and the product is always fantastic. We get really high-quality stuff and our families love it. They're just the best. I recommend them to all of my colleagues and if you're reading this, you should definitely use them for your next custom order. You won't regret it and the experience is always positive.
