Last month Alex from Dance Party Massacre approached us with a challenge: printing on hats. Full disclosure: we’ve never printed hats before. Screen printing on hats is something we’ve thought about plenty of times and probably talked about it twenty or thirty times, but never had anything to break that want vs. need ratio.
With a bit of research help from Alex, we decided to stray away from purchasing a press attachment for printing hats. There were a couple DIY folks who built their own hat presses, and there was no reason we couldn’t do the same. So on a hot summer afternoon Jay reversed engineered one of the DIY presses and we were really happy with the results. Photos below:
