You can now create your own U.S. Coast Guard Ship's Cap. WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War, Gulf War, Decommissioned, War-Loss and Current Vessels can now be custom-embroidered for you on the front panel of these Premium, MADE IN USA, Navy Blue Ball Caps.
The ship's name, hull number will be direct embroidered in gold and the ship will be direct embroidered in silver-gray silhouette. All cap designs adhere to the same traditional U.S. Coast Guard design that's still in use today.

All embroidery is done directly to the hat right here in our Maple Grove, MN headquarters. Options for embroidery are shown in the drop down menus in the options section above. If ribbons are being embroidered on the hat, we automatically place them in the correct order of precedence.
THE PICTURE IS ONLY AN EXAMPLE; ALL TEXT EMBROIDERY MUST BE REQUESTED IN THE FORM SPACES ABOVE. If a box is left blank, no text will be embroidered in that space.
If the ship silhouette or USCG logo is selected for the center, the ribbons will be placed below the center image and no text can be placed below the ribbons. If ribbons are placed in the center, one line of text may be placed below the ribbons.
Text on the side panels of the hat is as-you-are wearing it, the left side panel is over the left ear and the right side panel is over the right ear.Embroidery and Delivery Timeline
We do our best to ship every custom embroidery order within three weeks (15 business days) of the day it was ordered. We make all hats in the order they are received regardless of shipping method selected. Occasionally during the year and especially before holiday seasons such as Christmas, Father's Day, and Veterans Day, we receive more orders than we can fill within our typical three week time frame. If you need an item by a certain date, it is best to call us to see if we can fill the order by the date needed.Why do we ask for enlisted/officer and years of service?
Some badges, insignia, ship silhouettes, etc. have coloring or design that varies depending on the years of service or whether a veteran was enlisted or an officer. We strive for accuracy in our custom hats so we ask these questions to ensure the finished product best represents your service while upholding military traditions.Attachments to Ribbons
We are able to embroider most ribbon attachments. ATTACHMENTS MAY BE SLIGHTLY LARGER THAN ACCURATE SCALE. Embroidery of attachments has to be done on top of the embroidery for ribbons. Trying to embroider tiny stars onto the ribbons can ruin the hats by trying to put too much thread in a small space.
