Our custom knit beanies & beanies with pom pom

Custom knit beanie

While traditionally known as a winter headpiece, the knit beanie has evolved into a year-round cap that covers, warms, tidies, and broadcasts from the heads of beachgoers, snowboarders, and everything in between. 

Fulfilled by MyLocker, this model can be designed in 10 base colors at the moment. It boasts a prominent display area for embroidery on the forehead.

  • 100% Acrylic
  • One size fits all
  • Multiple color variations available

Custom beanie with pom-pom

It’s a beanie – but better. The pom-pom beanie is somewhat similar to the knit beanie but boasts a fluffy little puffball on top for a more playful, squeezable, and casual feel. In addition to a slightly sleeker tapering toward the crown, this model differentiates itself from the ‘regular’ custom beanie because it has the option of split coloring. 

With five flat and three mixed colors provided at this time by MyLocker, there’re a lot of different potential backgrounds for whatever artwork is showcased in the spacious display area to the front.

  • 100% Acrylic
  • One size fits all
  • Solid and two tone variations possible
  • Pom-pom at the top

Key features:

100% Acrylic

These lightweight, synthetic fibers are very similar to wool fabrics in both feel and look. They’re comfortable – soft to the touch. Furthermore, this material is predominantly hydrophobic, meaning resistant to water rather than fully waterproof. 

Ribbed knit

This design provides a seam boasting high degrees of comfort, fit, and elasticity. The ability to stretch means the cap will maintain its shape, even after a sizable amount of use.

Easy care and cleaning

If a custom beanie gets dirty, we recommend using warm water and soap for spot cleaning. If necessary, sanitization instruments can be used – like soft-bristled brushes.

Frequently asked questions about custom embroidered beanies

Yes, our beanies are 100% embroidery. Custom beanies can be easily fitted with embroidered designs. Before designing your own beanies please see our embroidery guide to ensure your designs are expressed properly.

The specifics of shipping all depend on which print provider you’re using. If the provider is far away, the shipping time and price will be larger relative to shorter distances. However, you do have the chance to check average production times. 

Shipping costs are also clearly demonstrated by each provider. These costs vary depending on which place around the globe the shipping occurs in. For example, domestic shipping will usually be cheaper than international transport.

Absolutely not. Arguably the best thing about being a Printify merchant is that we don’t issue any restrictions regarding order sizes. This is possible because products are only sourced and printed after they’ve been paid for by customers – eliminating any and all storage hassles. 

It is worth mentioning that it’s always best to order samples of products before selling to customers. This way, you’ll know exactly what your customers will experience.

Very well, actually. While there is a very valid question regarding how the singular size for the custom beanie will service all customers – it works very well. Thanks to the 100% acrylic fiber and ribbed-knit stitching, there’s a snug, wraparound feel that isn’t tight and uncomfortable.

No. While we recommend using spot cleaning instead of machine washing, these beanies are durable – as is their design.

Yes. While beanies have huge international appeal, they are particularly prevalent in Australia, the United States, and Canada. They also follow a very predictable pattern of popularity in the later months of the year, correlating with low temperatures and winter holidays.

Custom beanies printed on demand

So, it’s a given that custom beanies are a solid inclusion to an online store’s inventory. Arguably even better news, the whole thing is made possible by Printify’s revolutionary hybridization of print on demand and drop shipping. 

Here’s how it works; when a Printify merchant sets up a store with the goal of selling merchandise to customers via whichever eCommerce platform they choose to connect to, those products haven’t actually been created yet. It is only after a customer purchases a product that the blank item is selected by print providers, printed, then shipped out to that same customer.

These services each have their cost, but these are just subtracted from the final selling price – leaving all remaining profit to the business owner.

In short, this method effectively circumvents a majority of significant hurdles that new entrepreneurs encounter. It eliminates the need for upfront investment regarding storage, production, printing, fulfillment, and more – reducing financial risk and ensuring the business remains profitable.

Custom beanies with no minimum

This one is important enough to emphasize again. With us, no order is too small. Each ticket is given the proper respect and accomplished according to its creation date. 

Many customers buy single orders or purchase individually. This will never be a problem – our network of distributors is up to the task so you can sell your custom embroidered beanies with no minimum.

Best selling custom beanies

Custom beanies are frequently purchased during winter months or during cold snaps. This means that in addition to having a dependable market bump in the later parts of the year, each time the thermometer drops is yet another chance to cash in. 

While custom beanies are most commonly found protecting heads in chilly environments, they’ve also become super prevalent throughout areas of warmer atmospheric conditions (like Australia).

Their universal popularity originated from more utilitarian aspects like providing warmth, protection, and keeping hair out of the eyes of workers, but quickly expanded into its current, well-entrenched position in contemporary fashion – acting as contrast pieces, outfit accouterments, political statements, and much more. 

Furthermore, there will always be events that warrant some extra headgear; birthdays, holidays, anniversaries, sporting events, commemorations, hat parties, and so much more.

As just about any design you can think of can be embroidered on a custom beanie, that’s the ability to tap into virtually any demographic. They’re an easy way to add a little something special to an otherwise ordinary event.
