A1: Your staff may arrange an area with display hats arranged by size for delegates to try for correct fit, and staff may also use dress-maker's tape measures to assist that process. We can deliver the hats packed by size for easier distribution.
A2: Alternatively, we may negotiate to include an Akubra Fitting Station at the event, where we provide all hats and our own experienced staff to efficiently measure & fit, to complete the process professionally.
A1: Select a relatively large hat size for their demographic. This will be effective on stage, and the size may be corrected after the event.
A2: Alternatively, present an empty Akubra Presentation Box with your gift voucher inside. At the end of the ceremony, offer a range of sizes for correct fit.
A1: We have developed a "hot-branded" style of logo application using laser-engraving to burn your logo directly into the Akubra. This style of application proves ideal for a subtle & enduring Branding Promotion, effectively leveraging your brand with our image.
A2: Alternatively, should you require greater visual impact with colour; we offer a range of full-colour logo application techniques, including Flock & Plastisol transfers, hat-pins & badges, and woven & embroidered hat-bands.

A1: We manufacture in excess of 100 styles of fur-felt Akubra hats - from trilbies & top-hats to western and military contract hats - in a broad range of colour and trim options. More often than not we can satisfy clients' needs from that range.
A2: Alternatively, the individual, hand-made nature of our production process does allow for some customization of colours and trims, depending on minimum volume requirements and timing.
A1: Our comprehensive Akubra Sizing & Fitting Chart contains all necessary information for customers to determine their Akubra size. This can be easily distributed and reproduced as required.
A2: We can supply size ranges of Akubra hats with fitting & sizing instructions, which will enable staff at each location to fit and size themselves with the actual hat style, prior to local managers collating orders. This method is particularly useful when logo-branded hats are to be made-to-order. The size range hats are often retained for future fitting of new employees.
A3: Alternatively, we can supply a quantity of hats in a pre-determined size break-up to each location, then balance further requirements following initial fitting.
