#1 Buy Quality Custom Caps
Personalised caps are perfect marketing tools since they are practical and usable. This is true when the material and quality of the caps match their intended use. But, some caps can be useless due to poor quality.
It’s worth it to upgrade
By adding a little more to your budget, you can get a greater quality for your promotional caps. If branding is your goal, you’ll want your clients to associate your brand with value.
Remember, caps are tied to fashion, so they need to be attractive if you want clients to wear them in public.
Make them eye-catching to create a good impression that lasts. Your logo will be embroidered on these caps so it represents your brand.
Your hats and caps should be of great quality. A flimsy hat may cause inconvenience and discomfort to your clients. It may also create a negative impression.
Promotional caps can convert customers into ambassadors of your brand. Make sure you do it right!
#2 Find the “Cool” in Your Brand
Your promotional caps should always stand out. Your brand may have a hint of geekiness to it, but you can make it cool. Use catchphrases or slogan to create an impact.
Having your company’s name and logo is not enough. You have to be creative in promoting it.
Ask your self this question, “ Does your logo excite you?” If you have other caps in front of you would you wear yours if it’s not your brand?
Consider these specifications, when creating your embroidered caps:
- Number of colours
- Easy to read from a distance
- Contains fine details
- Identifiable at first look
- Does it stand out from the rest
