Snapbacks Variants and what to look out for

Do you know your Snapback cap?

Ever get confused by the term 5, 6 and 7 panel?

Well here is a simple guide to help with your confusion.

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.

5 Panel.

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.

6 Panel.

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.

7 Panel.

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.

7 PANEL Snapback

Custom 7 Panel Snapback, also known as a Harvard Cap, with its unique short front panel, ideal for printing designs on, or just for a simple tonal effect.
