Cap badges are a modern form of heraldry and their design generally incorporates highly symbolic devices.

Origins of regimental cap badges:

Regimental badges appears to have originated with the British Army. The Encyclop√¶dia Britannica’s 1911 Edition notes that although branch badges for infantry, cavalry and so on were common to other armies of the time, only the British Army wore distinctive regimental devices.

Cap badge variations

Plastic cap badges were introduced as an alternative to metal badges during the Second World War, when metals became strategic materials. Most cap badges in the British Army are now made of a material called “stay-brite”.

This is and Anodised Aluminium; Anodising is an electro-plating process resulting in lightweight shiny badge, this is used because it is cheap, flexible and does not require as much maintenance as brass badges.

Baseball caps:

The baseball caps are five panel cotton twill with a plastic size adjuster – one size fits all – in various colours; there is also a version in half mesh style but in a more limited colour range.

These caps are ideal for printing a club logo, as there is only a requirement for twelve hats. One colour print only on white hats. Machine embroidery is a further option for some designs.
