Contacting a hat manufacturer to customize a hat, the hat manufacturer says that they need to make a sample first and also need to pay the sample fee for the hat. Is this normal? What are the issues to be aware of when making a sample for a hat? This is also a question that many customers want to know.

  1. Question: What does hat sampling mean?

Answer: The hat manufacturer needs to customize the hat according to the customer’s requirements. This involves specific details such as the fabric used, style, craftsmanship, and logo design, all of which are specified and confirmed by the customer. After the sample is sent to the customer and they are satisfied, the production of the bulk order can begin. This is also for better cooperation in the future. Therefore, it is necessary to have a sampling and proofing process for large-scale hat customization.

  1. Question: Do you charge for hat sampling? How much is it?

Answer: According to our company’s regulations, there is a sample fee of about 45$ per color per model (for ordinary materials). The transportation fee is borne by the customer. If there is a special process that requires mold opening, the mold opening fee is borne by the customer themselves.
