Edited 31/7/21 to mention publishing.
On 16 July 2021, I logged into Redbubble to edit an artwork, and was shocked to find a new product available. Baseball caps were to be offered by Redbubble, in two variants:
- A standard baseball cap, and
- a ‘Dad cap’
They are now available for sale. There is a blog post released by Redbubble here with details about them.
Your artwork will need to be at least 2040 x 1140 px @300 DPI for this product.
Dark Grey: #777A77
Light Grey: #B7B4B8
Dad HatsBlack: #000000
Slate Grey: #4C5361
I made a quick template for the new product. It was pretty simple, since the printable area on the caps is just a wide rectangle.
Template comes as a .PSD file with the aforementioned specifications, and the various background colours as separate layers. I’ve also includes guides at the halfway marks horizontally and vertically, to make centering your artwork easier.
File is 1.46MB, compressed in a .zip file that’s 10.6kb
Template In Use
Here’s an example of me using this template. So I have an artwork called “Don’t Torture Yourself Darling …That’s MY Job”, featuring a silhouette of a man with a provocative quote. It’s a good design for vertically-oriented products like posters, but would not be suitable for this landscape-oriented product.
So I took the text and rearranged it in the template, utilising all the horizontal space.
Here’s how the design looks on the cap. I think it looks much better than if I’d just put the silhouette figure in the middle. The text is nice and large, so it will be legible even in small thumbnails of this product.
As at 31 July 2021, 11.20am AEST, there were already 3,686 hats available. Fast forward to 13 June 2022, and it’s gone up to 16,983 hats. So start enabling this design as soon as possible!
