The term PANEL refers to the crown of the hat. When we talk about 5/6/7 panels we are talking about the front of the cap. All hats will have 2 side and 2 rear panels, but there are a number of possibilities for the front of the cap.
This is a single panel of fabric which is folded to match the shape of the rest of the cap, leaving a small line of stitching to the top of the cap. Great for large printed logos or small detailed embroidered designs.
This tends to be a standard design for almost 90% of the Snapbacks we offer. Giving a more rounded finish to the cap and a cleaner look to the front of the cap. We can still print and embroider to this style of cap and bold 3D designs work very well as can be seen from the image.
You will see from the image that the front of the cap is split into 3 panels. 2 smaller triangles to the top and one larger central block. This particular style has become more and more fashionable over the past few years, with many caps incorporating leather or woven badges to the front.
