We have essentially created a way to have multiple hats in one. All you have to worry about is swapping out the patch. -- Stephen Liu, CEO HPI EMBLEM
El Segundo, CA (PRWEB) January 12, 2011
China-based emblem manufacturer HPI EMBLEM has just unveiled a new product that looks to be a game-changer for the promotional and decorated headwear industry. The Zap! Hat is a unique 5-panel cap that allows you to change the logo, graphic, or message by simply swapping out a regular velcro-backed 2.5” embroidered patch that sits flush on the front panel. HPI EMBLEM is an exclusive distributor of this patented cap in the promotional products and imprinted sportswear apparel markets.
The traditional five-panel custom cap is a classic item that will never go out of style. In the past, there were few options for companies, teams, and organizations looking for customizable caps. If logos weren’t direct embroidered, they were affixed as patches via sewing or heat press. Either way, the results were permanent—one logo for each hat. For the next event or the logo redesign there would be another round of new hats. HPI EMBLEM’s Zap! Hat is the first hat designed to allow for an infinite number of logo patch changes.

“We wanted to eliminate the hassle and cost of purchasing new hats for every company event or fundraiser," explained HPI EMBLEM CEO Stephen Liu. “We have essentially created a way to have multiple hats in one. All you have to worry about is swapping out the patch.”
After 25 years in business and over 53 million patches produced and delivered, the folks at HPI EMBLEM have positioned themselves as experts in the industry, prepared to innovate and take on new challenges.
