How to decorate hats with anything, anywhere including 3D embellishments

by Kelley-Ann Young Kong | 12/04/2024

We speak to Andy Rogers, Marketing Director at Stahls' UK & Europe about decorating hats and specifically the 360 IQ hat press at FESPA Global Print Expo 2024 at the RAI in the Netherlands.

The European hats industry is predicted to record the fastest rate of growth in the forecast timespan. The expansion of the industry in the region can be due to the large-scale presence of the aging population in countries such as the UK, France, and Germany. In addition to this, the surging popularity of products in the continent is anticipated to embellish the expansion of the industry in Europe. The market size of this sector in 2023 was $9.21 billion and it is forecasted to be $14.33 billion in 2032.

Currently in the hat sector recent trends include more dimensional finishes and more embroidered patches. The 360 IQ hat press uses lower heat where the heat is placed inside of the hat.
