The peak of a baseball cap is often the forgotten element when it comes to branding/decorating headwear and what we want to talk about in this blog are the multitude of ways to make this part of a hat, innovative and eye-catching.
You could use colour to your advantage and apply two different shades for the crown and peak. Having a multi-coloured hat will definitely bring more attention to your product.
Of course you don’t have to stop at colours! Fabrics can also be contrasted and sometimes, very effectively. For example, the Classic47 Melton has a Melton wool crown and a contrasting cotton peak. The pairing of colours and fabrics add more depth to the style, making it an incredibly bold product.
If you want to get really creative, then our bespoke service could be perfect for you. For example if you wanted to have a cotton crown with a faux suede peak or a corduroy crown with a denim option, you can do so.
*TIP – when choosing bespoke, please be aware that that the minimum order quantity is 144 per colour/per style*

There are a couple of stocked styles, where the peak is a major talking point and we have a myriad of them.
Our Classic47 Snapback comes in lots of options with contrasting colours on both the upper and under, and as previously mentioned, the Classic47 Melton is another great example, boasting a wool crown with a cotton peak. If you would like a more bespoke feel, then the Active47 Wave is a great choice, with its smooth flowing wave peak pattern. The Retro47 Distressed also has distressed detail to the edges of the, providing a retro and rugged appeal.

Bespoke headwear opens up countless possibilities and offers a greater variety of contrasting colours and fabrics. It also introduces numerous peak branding techniques. There are almost no limitations when going bespoke.
For example embossed and debossed patterns can be a subtle addition. If you wish to go bolder, then why not add embroidery? Or you could even apply a rubber printed badge with a logo embossed onto it. There are countless options and variations of branding techniques which are available to use. You can even apply a bottle opener. If that’s not bold and creative, we don’t know what is!

So it seems that you can do a lot with just this part of the hat. Whether it be bespoke branding techniques, contrasting fabrics or even a mere colour change, a cap peak alone can be a bold addition to any retail brand.
