Official 5 Panels/ Camp Caps Thread

Aug 12, 2012 @ 22:31
@magmar and @jetageoflotus. I would seriously suggest both of you guys hirer a designer. I really think someone who knows what they are doing could make something more appealing to the eye and make your hats stand out better.

A designer? We're just starting dude; we're not all professional so no shit it's not going to look good at first. We just have to give it some time.

What are some companies that make the deepest/most open 5 panels? I have a huge head. The ClichexHuf cap that came out a while back fits me perfectly and I have a Cliche Wallace Cap that fits nicely too. I got one of the new Rip n Dip navy caps but its too stiff and doesn't go down far enough on my head. Any suggestions?

Save up some money to do it right not shitty just to get it out there. Take some time to really finalize your designs and allow the creative process to work. Sure you may have some random people on an internet forum who say they will buy your hat because it is a trendy pattern but in an over saturated market of people who have the 'next up-and-coming streetwear brand' you have to find some way to delineate yourself from the pack. Using the first font you find in microsoft word and putting a line between the name and the city is one of the least original things around today. In addition to all this, getting someone with a better eye for design to do something that small and simple would not cost you much at all. Hell, I could even design something better than that for $10 as a studying graphic design student.

If a simple font and simple design will grab people's attention, so be it. Several brands out there that are making their way up have the most simplest designs of all, and of course, that's what's in; clean, simple, and not over-made. Excuse us for being 16 year old amateurs who are just trying out our ideas and accepting suggestions and solving our criticism.

If you can make something far more appealing then ours than awesome on your part. That's your opinion and I should respect that.

No one wants to hire a designer when they first start out. That's the thrill of starting your own brand. Throwing ideas out there and seeing them come to life.

I think this dude has a point tbh. He isnt really saying a total overhaul is needed but a differing idea and touch here and there could really make and break your designs. I think the best thing is not to rush and think about the logo and design etc or the brand 'motif'...you dont want to start off with a logo and then be changing it 6 months down the line because its shitty...that takes away any work you did gaining fans and getting your brand recognisable. Time and effort has to be put in to cover these bases, if that means getting a little design help it could prove indespensable in the long run.

lots of great five panels out now

I'm thinking of constructing 6 panel polo caps with the same closure on camp caps instead of strapbacks what do you think about doing this?

There is nothing fundamentally wrong with the design but it also doesn't stand out. And yes many brands are using simple tags but don't use another brands' success to justify what you are doing. You said it yourself; clean and simple is

Yeah me neither seems to basic



Supreme is basic...

just saying


Basic is fine
But supreme and disposible are 2 very different words
when people read the WORD (not talking about the brand) supreme the connotation they get is "the best" and other stuff like that but when I read the word Disposible, its weak bro, It doesn't have a ring to it. It wouldn't look good as a logo or anything man. No offense. Basic is good but "disposible" as a brand name just doesnt like work for me I guess. Keep trying dude seriously you could come up with something better.

I get you man. But the reason why i choose the name was cause its different and something way out there. I mean its an ironic name. I just think that something different is needed. Yeah there brands that use "bright" or "happy" (you could say) names like hundreds, supreme, diamond, decades, etc. Just thought it was different and much more out there which i like of the name.


Those brands you named like hundreds, supreme, etc theyre names are cool and out there but just because it's different or out there doesnt mean its good. You could choose something that is "out there" but good. If you really like the name then do it but im teling you man it just doesnt have that ring brand names should have

Don't people say this shit in their head before they make stuff, think about it "Damn I'm really down to cop that Disposable camp" "You should check out this new brand, they're sick they're called Bright Lights" I'm sure I'd lose all my creditably, this shit is going to be like a tattoo. People don't forget.

Free country? I should fuck you up for saying that

dont care too much really but since when did fresh out the box 'brands' start on custom 5 panels... and not... tshirts and stickers? really?

dig the mushroom print, but i'm not a big fan of white camps. you'd think the print would cover more of the hat too (or they just chose a really poor example for the photo).

since these brands started coming up to be aimed at making custom 5 panels instead of following the crowd like sheep and starting off first doing what everyone else does. maybe they want to be seen differently to all these other people by their conventions in brand design today. who says its required to follow the way other brands did to get in the market than to find your own inspirations and let them lead you to where you are trying to reach.
