Pressing designs on hats using a Hat Press

Pressing words, designs and bling on hats can be fun and can make great gifts!!  I like to personalize hats for my customers!

Sports moms love to show their support for their athletes.  Dog and cat owners can show their love of their pets.  Hats are great when you are on vacation and can be customized to your destination!  Hats are great when you have messy hair and don’t care!!

You can easily custom make hats with bling, vinyl and iron on patches if you have a few tools and a little tutorial!

Some people just love wearing hats!

Here are a few hats I took to a craft show to sell recently:

I have used Heat Transfer Vinyl, Heat Transfer Glitter Vinyl, iron-on bling and iron-on patches.

Here is a tutorial video I filmed showing how to press hats VIDEO

I would appreciate if you subscribe to my YouTube Channel!!!

Here are supplies so you can press hats!!
