What are snapbacks?
Although snapbacks are any style of hat which has an adjustable plastic snap closure system in the back, in the last ten years the term has become associated with the high-crown flat brim style of hats that are popular as merchandise for NBA, NFL and MLB hats for the last 30 years. The snapback closure is a standard feature of classic baseball caps. The term snapback has become popular with various rappers adding it into their lyrics and both skaters and celebrities wearing "snapbacks" as well. As long as there is a plastic snap closure on the back of a hat it is technically a snapback.

A snapback hat is a nice gift and if the recipient likes hats then they will love wearing it everyday further promoting your business and message.

Flexfit has many design options in their snapback hat offering. We can help you create the caps that you envision.

Custom Snapbacks - Styles
Here are some snapback styles to help you identify the kind of cap you want create for your project. Use these terms to help you design a cap that represents your company or message.
5 Panel vs 6 Panel Snapbacks
Five Panel refers to the front part of the hat--also called the crown--being one solid piece across the front. There can be many different profiles within the 5 Panel family. There are Low, Mid and high profile.
Six Panel snapbacks have a crown or front area that is made up of two separate pieces. So it is easy to identify because there is a seam running down the middle of the front of the hat. If you are looking for a low profile hat you are looking more for a dad cap.
Curved Visor vs Flat Bill Hats
Curved visor snapbacks have visors or bills that are curved and pre-shaped in the factory using heat. Some people prefer to curve their brims on their own using various techniques but mostly these hats are shaped this way when they are made.
Custom Flat Bill Hats or Flat Brim do not have a pre-curved bill but instead come flat. This is how the brim is made in the factory and skips the part where they pre-curve the bill. This has become a popular look and it leaves it to each individual if they want to add a slight curve into their bill or just leave it completely flat for that flat brim style.
High Profile - 3.75" Tall
Mid = 3.5" Tall
Low Profile vs. Mid Profile vs. High Profile
Here are some average crown heights for determining the profile of your snap back.
- Low - Crown ~ 3 1/8”
- Mid - Crown ~ 3 1/2”
- High - Crown ~ 3 3/4”
Mostly depending on your customer or how you personally like your cap to fit your head you will want to choose the right size profile.
There are many available embellishment options for customized snapbacks. Embroidery is the quickest production time with most orders being completed 2 weeks from the quote and artwork being accepted. Once your order is approved and payment received the production begins.
Full Front - 4.5" Wide x 2.25" High
Left/Right Panel - 2.5" W x 2.5" H
Side (Long) - 3.25" W x 0.5" H
Side - 2.5" W x 2.5" H
Back - 3.4" W x 0.5" H
Left/Right of Back - 1" W x 1" H
Adding a custom patch is another great way to customize your snapback order. Patches have a bit longer lead time because of the patch being produced first. Patches take about 2 weeks for production once your initial sample patch is approved. Then we stitch the patches on the hats and that takes another week. In total 3-4 week production for patches on custom cap orders before the hats shipping to your door.
Some snapbacks allow us to do screen printing on. The best style hats for screen printing are foam front truckers and high crown canvas front truckers. We can screenprint on some unstructured nylon hats as well. Send us your cap design and the style of hat or embellishment technique you are interested in and we will create a free digital proof for your approval.
