About those extras.... 

I understand 'having all the things", "being extra" and "it's all about the details" - but - don't do this to the very first hat you order. Please. 

Try the standard cap, make sure it's everything you want. Right size, depth, brim is good. Then add one thing at a time. Every single alteration changes the way your cap fits. 

  • The sweatband might make your hat too tight if it's perfect before adding the sweatband. 
  • The embroidery stiffens the area where is stitched ever so slightly.
  • The FR Brim is thicker than a standard brim. 
  • Add all those up and your cap won't fit like it did before. So, just one thing at a time. Okay?

Sweat Bands

I appreciate that clients prefer American made as much as possible. Like the solid colored fabrics, the sweatband fabric is Akas Textiles & Laminations absorbent microfiber terry, made in the USA. For more info about this company visit www.akastex.com.

I've tried many different types of absorbent fabrics and this one is the best by far. It is not 100% cotton, it is 75% polyester/25% polyurethane. Highly absorbent and placed between the fabric pieces so it isn't exposed to your skin or sparks. 

After the welding cap is completed I use multiple sets of triple stitches on the band to keep the inner layer of terry from shifting and twisting during the life of washing and wearing.

Fire Retardant Brims

I currently carry this in indigo only. The dark navy color coordinates with just about everything and looks great. The performance of this FR denim is exceptional. You may have guessed that I test every raw material that goes into a final finished welding cap. I have tested this fabric for burning - it did not, would not under any condition I used. From sparks from a grinder (yes, I know how to use one), flame from a basic lighter to the slightly stronger flames from a larger fireplace style lighter. It did not catch fire, it did not melt. What I did get was a slight blacking of loose threads. 

I purchase this fabric from a business in Pennsylvania.

The embroidery fonts you order for your new welding caps are setup and stitched in house. I have one embroidery machine (that can sew as a backup) and one sewing machine for daily use. 

Typically I use standard black thread or white thread for embroidered text - if you have a color preference feel free to let me know. No charge. 

The welding caps with embroidery as a main feature of the cap, ie: the Middle Finger and Election caps are also embroidered in house. 

The threads used for embroidery may be rayon or polyester. Either way each thread type is colorful, strong and easy care. You can machine wash and dry every cap. 

If you would like a logo or other design digitized to be used as embroidery that image will be outsourced to a reputable US company. The average charge for that is 35$ per image and you retain all rights to the finished electronic file. 

If you have an electronic file for machine embroidery already I can sew it on caps. Normally it will cost approximately 6$ per cap unless it's time intensive, then a bit more.

Important: Embroidery Location*

Center Front is above the brim for reference 

Center Back is opposite the brim

Center Left is where the USA tag is normally place

Center Right opposite the USA flag location  

I use these references only so we are both on the same page when you choose your selection.

If you choose the Center Left location I can put the Made in the USA label on the center right side.

There is a limit of 6" in length for text. The more letters used the smaller the text is going to have to be to fit.
