The authentic and practical Australian image of an Akubra hat provides your business with an ideal vehicle to leverage and promote your Brand to your target customers, with a diverse range of custom decoration options available.
Using the latest laser technology, we can now re-create your logo with the look of a genuine hot branded image - directly onto an Akubra fur-felt hat of your choice. This in-house process produces a burnt-in, tone on tone, 3D image with extremely high precision and fine detail reproduction, creating a logo that is both subtle and complimentary to our Akubra image - effectively allowing your Brand to "piggy-back" on our uniquely Australian profile. Short production runs (a minimum of just 10 hats), quick turn-around, and great value for money are just a few of the outstanding benefits of this unique process. For sufficient contrast, this method is suitable only for hats of light to mid colours.

Custom design hat-pins available in various metallic or coloured finishes can be manufactured and fitted to Akubra hats to enhance your corporate image. Hat-pins offer a traditional and popular branding option, and is well-suited to applications where exact replication of logo colours and depth is required, or where on-site fitting to hats is required.

Ideally suited to larger production runs for schools, Police Forces, and Emergency Services, custom-woven hat-bands are created to exacting colour-matching requirements, and allow for the inclusion of crests to be reproduced in very fine detail. The range of thread types and colours is vast, and the rapid sampling-to-production process ensures that your deadlines are not compromised.

Flock is the most durable heat transfer system available, and can be printed in any PMS colour or combination of colours. Its 3-D velvet-like finish compliments the feel of an Akubra. Plastisol replicates the appearance and feel of direct screen printing, and can reproduce fine detail in single or multiple colours including half-tones. Photo transfers are produced using a 4-colour digital printing process to achieve the highest quality print of multi-colour graphics. This process is best suited to solid designs, although text and finer details can be printed using solid backgrounds and keylines.

Printed bands are well-suited to logo-branding of our straw hat range - for a single-colour repeat logo in larger quantities.
