Establish Brand Recognition with Custom Hats/Apparel

By Scott Weldon

Establish Brand Recognition with Custom Hats/Apparel
The more times your customer sees your logo, the more likely they will remember your company. Custom logoed hats/apparel is great for increasing impressions, whether it is at your place of business, in the grocery store or on the golf course. It is one of the best ways to advertise your business, and is something that is not always viewed as advertising.

Custom apparel leaves a softer, but sometimes more powerful impression than traditional advertising. While many people are often turned off by advertising efforts, branded apparel is generally not interpreted as advertising, as it helps identify your employees in the field or in your store. This less intrusive way of promoting your business is effective and affordable. 

Each business is different, but there are countless varieties of custom apparel options available

Why do we all have balls on our hats a brief history of the pompom

Why do we all have balls on our hats a brief history of the pompom
We came across this awesome blog by Kelly Conaboy about the history of the pom-pom. Creating a pom-pom hat for this month's release we thought the timing couldn't be any better to share this post. 

The winter season brings with it many seemingly unknowable questions. Why is the weather so cold? Why is the outside so dark? Why do I feel so sad all of the time? And finally, why does everyone have a pom-pom on the top of their hat as if it is a normal decoration, and no one ever talks about it, not even if you ask them directly and are very polite?

While the answer to why winter is so cold and dark and sad may never (?) be uncovered, the pom-pom question is a different story. There is an explanation for why you have that ball, that burst of fun, that round smush of fabric on the tippy top of your head. Is it an interesting explanation? Well. Okay. How about — let's just hear the explanation and you can decide for yourself if it's interesting. How about that?

Nogginwear Success on Kickstarter - Launches First & Only Limited Edition Hat Subscription

BOSTON - June 3, 2016 - PRLog -- Nogginwear, the First & Only Limited Edition Hat Subscription is celebrating a successful finish at Kickstarter.com, an online fundraising site, that will now allow Nogginwear to move full steam ahead on creating the limited edition hats.

"We are extremely pleased deciding to use Kickstarter, reaching our goal in just 6 days and ending 135% above our goal," says Mr. Weldon, Co-Founder & CEO. Weldon goes on to describe the process as very user friendly and extremely easy to maintain through updates.

Nogginwear is totally unique and different by not just designing and manufacturing a different premium retail quality limited edition hat each month for monthly hat subscribers but taking it up a notch with Limited Edition Series, the Artist Series, the Food & Cocktail Series and the recently added Hunting Series featuring Facebook icon Hillbilly Weatherman.

Nogginwear has since secured some incredible artists to the list of limited edition artist series hats including: award winning comic book creator, writer Stan Sakai, creator of Usagi Yojimbo; Multiple award winning comic book creator, writer and artist Bill Morrison, known for his comic book series Roswell, Little Green Man and later, Matt Groening brought Bill into the world of the Simpsons as the art director for Bongo Comics. Bill drew the very first Simpsons comic story and he has been involved with nearly every Bongo Comicbook ever since as writer, penciler, inker or supervisor. Groening also had Bill art direct and develop characters for the Futurama show. Nogginwear continues to add to the distinguished list of Artists - soon to be released. The Nogginwear business model and culture is also about giving back through established partnerships with non-profit organizations like the National Cartoonists Society Foundation, which sponsors events like Cartooning for Kids at St. Jude's Hospital in Memphis.


"It's about doing something different and unique while having fun and providing a top quality product and sharing it with our subscribers via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram; not to mention it's a great gift for the hard to buy for person," says Mr. Lambert, Co-Founder and CFO.

Nogginwear's business model is to provide a limited edition uniquely designed, high quality hat for direct to consumer sales. "The concept of a uniquely designed limited edition hat hit us about a year ago while watching family and friends ripping open gifts with sheer excitement not knowing what was inside. Our concept, our passion, is to recreate that feeling of joy and excitement for our hat subscribers each month; we call this hatisfaction," says Mr. Weldon, Co-Founder & CEO.

"I knew if we could succeed on Kickstarter, it would make all this possible, and be on track for a full launch in June," continues Mr. Weldon.
