How to: Multi-Color Screen Printing on Hats || St. Patty's Day Hat

Print Your Left Chest Prints on Hats

When our print shop realized that a large number of customers placed orders for left chest prints, we saw an opportunity to offer them something unique and only available from our shop. Being able to take an existing design and reproduce high quality prints on hats proved to be the easiest up-sell we ever made. 

"Would you like a hat with that?"

With the Captain Platen for screen printing, the process of printing on hats is as easy as printing left chest prints. It's both easy and cost effective, and the best part is the customer leaves happy. Not only will being able to print on hats boost your revenue, you'll suddenly stand out from the competition!
