Custom patch hats for special events are the perfect accessory to commemorate and celebrate something that doesn’t get to come around very often. Whether you’re celebrating an anniversary, throwing a fundraising event, or participating in a community event, patch hats are suitable for giveaways, gifts, and marketing purposes.

If you’re commemorating a big milestone, we love the idea of adding a woven or suede label to the side or back with the date. It’s a subtle reminder of the achievement, and that frees the front of the hat up for your awesome logo and artwork. 

Hats are great gifts for employees and getting your team decked out in custom branded gear is a fun way to make everyone feel like they’re part of the team. Whether you’re all volunteering together or participating in a team building seminar, gifting your employees some great patch hats for the event is a thoughtful and usable piece of SWAG. 

Dad Hats With Custom PatchesWhether you’re hosting a community event or sponsoring one, patches and patch hats are a great merchandise item to offer event-goers. Maybe it’s part of their signup welcome packet, or you sell them in your booth, or you only have a couple on hand for giveaways, they’re an affordable merchandise option that is lightweight, easy to carry, and easy to display.

Here are a few things to remember when you order hats for a special event:

  1. Make sure your design is something people want to wear – that’s free marketing!
  2. Choose a hat style that suits the people wearing it – maybe that means choosing a technical running hat, or a great unisex option like a trucker or dad hat.
  3. Put event details, dates, or websites on a secondary patch or label – it’s more subtle and wearable.
  4. Consider your costs – if these hats are going to be given away, think about low price options like foamies or heat press.
  5. Order overage. You’ll invariably end up giving more away than you initially anticipated, and it may help you reduce future costs. 
  6. Order additional patches (with a heat press backing). These can be a great add on item for swag bags and giveaways.

Special events are already distinguished by their special occurrence and we love the commemorative nature of hats and patches. They’ll stick around a long time and act as mile markers over the course of your organization’s existence, a sweet nod to the moment and a historical reminder of where you were then as you gauge where you are now. Let us help you design some awesome custom patch hats for special events for your organization.
