Although bucket hats were initially introduced in the early 1900s, they have made a spectacular return to popularity. Have you noticed that more and more people are wearing bucket hats every day? Being a top promotional product with incredibly high visibility and use, you can't go wrong with creating a custom bucket hat for your business!
Bucket hats are a promotional product that actually gets used, keeps your staff sun-safe, and is one of the first things people will notice when they see you. Take these yellow, green and red Welsh bucket hats from the 2022 Football World Cup for example. They might be what some would call ugly, but boy do they stand out!
In this blog post, we'll dive into the world of custom-made bucket hats, exploring the different styles and possibilities they can offer you.
The Cut & Sew Style Where Classic Meets Creative
The cut-and-sew bucket hat style is a timeless choice that appeals to those who love a classic look but one that may not be possible with local wholesaler stock.
Each panel in these bucket hats are carefully cut out and sewn together to create an overall design. Therefore, this style accommodates basic designs for those who prefer simplicity. It also takes advantage of unique colour schemes and combinations you don't find in wholesale stock.
These bucket hats can be created using cotton or polyester fabrics and can feature your embroidered logo on the front of the hat.
Unleash your Imagination With Sublimated Bucket Hats
Sublimated bucket hats are a game-changer for those who love a unique, fully customisable design. With full patterned designs and many colour options, this style lets you let your imagination run wild to create eye-catching bucket hats. The possibilities with sublimated bucket hats are virtually endless, resulting in a bucket hat that genuinely stands out.
Want even more customisation? You can make your bucket hats double-sided and reversible, giving you two hats in one! It's the ultimate option for those who can't decide on just one design.
Terry Towelling Bucket Hats Invite Stylish Simplicity
Super on-trend, the terry towelling bucket hat style offers a single-coloured bucket hat with an embroidered logo. While it may be more of a "basic" choice, the unique terry towelling fabric look is an increasingly stylish option that stands out in its own right.
Choose a single colour that reflects your brand or personal taste and add an embroidered logo for a subtle yet impactful touch.
Catalogue Options – The Speedy, No-Fuss Solution
For those who need a quick and easy win, catalogue styles are the option for you! These styles are locally held by wholesalers in Australia and are readily available for you to select from. With a lead time of just ~2-3 weeks plus shipping, you won't have to wait long to get your hands on these bucket hats. This option is perfect for those who need a simple, no-fuss solution to their bucket hats and can suit orders from as low as 20 units.
Catalogue bucket hats are limited by the stock levels, styles, and colours that the local wholesaler holds. While they might not offer the same level of creative freedom, they have the advantage of being an ideal choice for smaller businesses, or events, where simple, quick designs are all that's needed.
