Baller Hat Samples

Hey Folks,

Still working on the Baller hats.  The first run was unsuccessful, so we are using them as testers for the under bill screening and to get some street feedback.  

The text will be lowered to the proper height for hats like this and be centered better.

The under bill screening tests are developing.  As someone new to screen printing, I am using these samples to get it right.  When down.  There will be 25 limited edition black ballers with the under bill prints and 10 red Ballers.

Thanks for your patience.
