Some fashion trends take off and stay relevant for a few…
Many businesses use custom hats to gain brand visibility. They will pick some of the best-selling hats and customize them by embroidering their business’s logos and mottos. The strategy works incredibly well for all sorts of businesses, including online stores. Some brands would also create custom embroidered hats for live events. That ensures their brand gets maximum impressions which are critical for building awareness and acquiring new customers.
However, the technique only works if you pick the right hats. First, you need to know what kind of hats are popular with your customer base. You also need to know the different embroidery methods and their impact on the appearance of your logo.
You should also know that the appearance of your logo can affect how customers view your hats. For example, bold 3D embroidered logos can give you maximum visibility. However, some consumers tend to prefer hats with modest logos.
Nevertheless, if you want your custom hats project to succeed, you need to get the best caps. So here are some of the top caps that would make excellent embroidered hats:

Trucker hats are some of the most popular types of caps today. These hats are designed with a canvas at the front and mesh towards the back. You also get a pre-curved brim and an adjustable closure.
This particular hat from Richardson Sports features a cotton-poly fabric at the front and a nylon mesh at the back. It has a Richardson logo patch embroidered at the front. You can have the same color throughout the hat or split the colors into two. For example, you could have heather grey at the front and white towards the back.

4. Croogo Mesh 5-Panel Dad Hat
5-panel caps have seen a significant rise in popularity in the last few years. As the name suggests, these hats are made with five panels instead of the standard six, common with baseball caps. It has one horizontal panel in front, one panel on either side and two parallel panels at the top.
The caps have an unstructured design, but they fit really well with different head shapes and sizes. Plus, most of them come with adjustable straps for a perfect fit.
The Croogo dad hat is not your ordinary 5-panel hat. Sure, it has five panels, but it uses a mesh on the sides. That means it is some kind of a trucker hat as well. Also, it uses a pre-curved visor instead of a flat snapback visor, as is the case with most 5-panel caps.

5. FlexFit 6007 YP Classics Snapback Cap
FlexFit uses advanced technology to create some of the best baseball caps on the market.

This makes sure the caps fit perfectly without the use of adjustable straps.
The YP Classics Snapback Cap is a 5-panel snapback hat. It has only one front panel creating an ideal space to embroider your business logo. The flat snapback visor and one connected front panel will ensure your logo draws maximum attention.
The cap is 100% cotton. The 8-row stitching on the visor adds some nice detailing to the hat. You can get the cap in various colors, including grey, dark grey, navy, black, red, royal, and white.
6. Nike Heritage 86 Baseball Cap
One creative way to make your embroidered hats stand out is by using different textures. That’s precisely what Nike has done with the heritage 86 baseball cap.

The design is pretty simple, but it stands out. So if your target audience is into the 90s style or wants unique custom caps, use this design.
Choosing the correct cap is a critical step when embroidering hats. You need popular hats to ensure your caps will have sufficient demand. Quality is also critical.
