So went to the mall the other day (I have two teenage daughters ) and was bored off my ass so I walked into Lids thinking I need a new hat. Walked out with my version of an un-official AZFJ hat. Wanted AZFJ to be on it and to have my forum name to be on it (its also what we call our FJ).
I posted my hat on FB to share and got a pretty good response. So, decided to find out what it would take to have a few made for all of us to have. We've had some really cool stickers, t-shirts and patches come up lately so why not a hat, too.
I am currently talking with a local business (bought mine at Lids, which isn't quite Ma 'n Pa local) to find out where and how to get more made. They have Flexfit hats in many colors and am working with them on a close match to what I put on my hat and embroidery thread colors.
I didn't ask about the AZFJ official (unofficial? ) logo as I thought it would be too much to add to the price, but could still ask, I guess.
Once I have the font pinned down, I will post up what it will look like. Was gonna go with as close to the original font I put up on my hat.
I don't know what colors they have for embroidery or if it would be extra for various colors. I will be finding out.
Anyways...
Let me know if you guys have any interest and I will put in an order. Hopefully it will be done in time for the meet and greet.
Hats are going to be around $21 with AZFJ and name on back. Of course, the more we order, the bigger the discount. BTW, I paid $43 for my hat. More on that as interest grows.
Let me know what ya'all think. Thanks.

Thanks for your patience everyone!!

I for one can't wait for the hats limited to game theory style accomplishments..

"Hat only available for tater tot loving FJ lovers."
"Hat only available for eliminating cats."
"Hat only available for those who got hats 1,F,$."


AKA TF2 style hats.

No familiar?

Has anyone looked into the various Patch companies that will also slap the AZFJ Patch onto a hat? The resulting product could then be taken to pretty much any embroidery company to have ones handle stitched across the back adjustable strap.

patches you say?

old:
www.azfj.org/index.php...ic&t=10602
new:
www.azfj.org/index.php...ic&t=12399


after re-reading .. I think what the question is:
"has anyone brought a patch TO a shop for a quote for sewing patch ONTO hat AND then stitching name on the back; thus reducing the price (perhaps)?"

There ~could be savings IF the hat is provided by the buyer (they already own a hat they like).

my napkin math:
patch $8.00
name on back of hat ~$5.00
sewing patch on at time of name ~$1.00 (free?)

$13 to $14 dollars already ...


I guess that is cheaper than $21 IF you have the hat. But $8 for a NEW hat (blank hat) if my math works out against the OP $21 price guess..


BUT dont forget your time; it has to be worth something right?

buy patch, drive to shop with old stank hat; get patch applied; get name applied; pay; drive home.

VS

someone setups up a big complicated order with shop
money sent electronically
hat delivered via mail? hat picked up at agreed spot? hat sent by unicorns.

The hats I like to wear are vented in the back and military style camo, they already have velcro sewn on the front and rear. I can pick them up at the local surplus store here from 6 to 10 bucks depending on sale pricing. I had some military name tags sewn up with my nick name and velcro backed like they do now and several AZFJ patches to put on the front. so I can switch them to whatever color hat that I'm in the mood for.
Works for me.

The are businesses out there that will embroider the front of the hat with the patch... Check out a company called "The Studio", I've used them for many patch projects. However I have not used them for apparel: www.thestudio.com
