You own patches that need to be sewn onto out caps. We can help with that. Our sewing expertise is what sets our custom caps apart. That's what happens when you sew a few thousand custom caps a year.
Two patch minimum: $40. You can also purchase three patches to be sewn on to our caps for $60. Caps sold separately.
Steps to getting your patches sewn onto blank caps:
Pricing and vintage patch guidelines:
- Sewing service pricing for two patches is $40. Caps are not included and must be purchased as well.
- A patch must be no taller than 3" to fit on one of our caps. Maximum width is 5". Again, please send us a photo of your patch before making a purchase.
- As we mentioned before, patches with multiple curves and sharp angles might not be sewable. Along with some modern made patches.
- Please note: During December and vacations, we don't take on any sewing service jobs.

Frequently asked questions about our sewing service.
So why go to all the trouble of machine sewing vintage patches onto caps? Because it’s simply the best way to secure a patch onto a ball cap. A well-sewn patch will last twenty years or more. The cap will give out before the patch ever does. Sure, you could glue down a patch in half the time but it’s never going to be able to stay secure or make a design “pop-off” a cap. Machine sewing stretches and secures a patch to the point where it hugs the contours of a cap. Gluing down a patch on a cap can never achieve this unique dimensionality and lasting power.
How hard can it be, you're just sewing a patch onto cap?
Sewing a patch properly onto a cap is a craft that's developed by spending countless hours of being really mediocre at sewing patches onto a cap. Not only is this about sewing technique and the proper equipment – it's about the process of properly prepping vintage patches for sewing onto a cap. When thinking back on it, Wes believes it took around a thousand caps before he thought he could be decent at this. He says he still learns something new about sewing every week. So, how hard can it be to sew a patch onto cap? Not so hard now – just took a few thousand caps is all.
Do you really sew all of your patches onto caps in-house?
Yes we do. When we first started out, we sewed all of our patches onto caps by hand. After a few hundred orders, and countless blisters, we purchased an industrial sewing machine that we had customized to our specifications. We hate to brag, but our sewing expertise is what sets us apart and allows us to have cap customization as a big part of our business.
