Back in the day all the classic trucker caps sported patches. And of course what is old is new again. The patch trend on hats is making a big come back.
Leather and sublimated options add a fun new twist to hat patches.
Without sounding like a broken record (which we are going to anyway…) hats are probably the BEST form of advertising. And with these new patch options you can really stand out from the crowd.
Need some ideas on how you can use this trend with your brand, project, or upcoming event? Listed below are some ideas to help get your creative mind cranking away.
- Design a new twist on your logo and run the hats as a “limited edition”. If people know these won’t always be available they are more likely to purchase it as soon as they see it.
- Want a big crowd at your event? Use the same ‘limited edition” concept and let everyone know that the only way they can score the hat is to attend the event.
- Use them as employee incentives or to mark milestones. For example you just produced your millionth widget. Get everyone a hat to mark the occasion and show your appreciation of a job well done.
- Don’t forget family events like reunions or weddings or even milestone birthdays.

As we head into the final week of 2018 we wanted to take a moment and thank all our customers for their support this year. And based on the orders still coming in, 2019 will be off to a great start. So again, thank you all so much!
Here are a few things to keep an eye out for during the next couple of months:
New 2019 Catalogs under our E-Catalog tab. If you want a print copy of our master catalog stop by the shop. We have plenty and they are FREE!
Flash Sales: especially on hats. We seem to have an abundance of extra hats from Flex Fit, Adams, Pacific Headwear, Yupong, and Port & Company. We don’t need them but you might. Keep your eye out for those notifications on our Facebook page and here on our Home page.
New Trend Highlights on our blog. There is always a new trend brewing in our industry. While not all of them may be for you, they might give you some ideas to help you mix up your uniform, gift, or promotional items.
Updates to our Website. Some of these you will notice but a lot of them you won’t. They will be running in the background making the website faster to load and easier to navigate on your device of choice.
And on that note from all of us here at National Embroidery have a safe and happy Holiday week!
Back in October we introduced the Collective System and have since had several customers start using this line in place of a more traditional 3 in 1 jacket. The feedback to date has been very positive. Our customers are saying that the price point is better, the mix and match options are modern and updated for today’s style trends, and the jacket line is broken down for men and ladies so everyone gets the perfect fit. Check it out and let us know what you think.
Browse the system in our on-line store.

The 2019 Charles River catalogs are at the shop for those of you who like paper copies and for those that don’t the new catalog is on line under our E-Catalogs tab. (There are several new catalogs for 2019 waiting for your perusal so be sure to take a peek.)
We already have some of the new items in stock at the shop. Come on by if you are curious.
For the month of October when you purchase the New Englander rain jacket in Rose Gold (shown below) Charles River will donate 10% to Pull for A Cure and Breast Cancer Research. How cool is that!
Also be sure to check out our Facebook page where there are some closeout deals going on from Charles River. The deep discounts on 2018 items means you might be able to outfit your team for a lot less than you thought you could.
