Honours Caps a Sporting Achievement
The first sporting caps were issued in the UK by the Football Association in 1872. The game was a 'home international' between England and Scotland, the first ever between the two nations. The tradition was adopted by many sporting associations in other forms of sport. The term 'Cap' has since become synonymous with the prestige of representing your country.
We maintain that tradition today and supply the Cap for many types of achievements. Our customers include sports associations, professional clubs, amateur clubs, universities and individuals.
Designed to wear during the game the original International Cap helped identify teammates. The Cap progressed to a more ceremonial purpose of representing the achievement and honour. Whatever your achievement you can use the cap designer to create your own custom text and design.
Sporting Club or Business Requirements
Our design team have 40 years experience of combining club and corporate colours. They produce unique products and classic finishes. Further colour choices are available for orders of 20 units or above, please contact us for more details.
The Handcrafted Honours Cap Structure
The Caps are available in a choice of 21 material colours and each of the caps six panels can be a different colour. The material used is Japanese Felt which also covers both sides of the cap lip. The lip of the cap can also be one of the available 21 material colours.
All six panels can contain text as an option or one logo/club badge. The standard layout is to present the logo or badge on the front panel with text around it if required.
The 'Trim' of each cap comprises of; the decorative brocade around the rim; the panel seams; the outer lip braid; the tassel and button that sits on the crown.
The rim brocade, outer lip braid and panel seam braid are optional parts of the trim. Any or all can be added or removed from the cap design. Trim comes in a choice of Gold or Silver braid (Further colours are available for 20 items plus, contact us for more details).
Each handcrafted cap has a polyester satin taffeta lining. The lining on each cap is marked with our personal details. The text or logo has a choice of finish, cotton embroidery, wire or a combination of both. Our design team will select the best option based on your requirements. If you have a preference please contact the design team for further assistance.
Your Honours Cap Text and Logo Layout
There are no hard and fast rules here, it's your cap so you can be as imaginative as you want. For an amateur football club, for example, you may want the club badge on the front panel of the cap and any dates, names or messages on the lip. We can put text on any of the six panels on the cap, have a look round the shop or 'inspire me' pages to get some ideas.
These are just guides and yes we design caps that suit opposing the guides. If you need any help please give our team a call.
To start designing your cap please go to our Cap Designer page.
Sporting Club or Corporate Designs and Layouts
Any individual panel of the cap can carry one copy of your club badge or logo with text around it. Often the location used for this is the front panel, again it's your design.
