The Fan Favorite – Richardson 112 Hats for Embroidery

The Richardson 112 Snapback Trucker Cap is our top-selling trucker cap. It features a 60/40 cotton/polyester fabric that makes the perfect canvas for various types and sizes of embroideries.

The versatile hat also has a snapback enclosure that simplifies adjusting the hat to fit the wearer. Even better, the hat is available in over 30 attractive colors, allowing you to pick the perfect color for your embroidered custom hats for business or fun.

Why People Love it

Below are some of the reasons the Richardson 112 Snapback Trucker Cap is among the best company hats:

  • High-quality construction that maintains its shape and color after several washes
  • Wide variety of hat color options to fit just about any logo
  • Reasonably priced to fit most budgets
  • Mesh material on the back for superior ventilation
  • Wide brim for reliable sun protection
  • Attractive design that pairs well with various outfit combinations


If you want options besides the 112 Snapback, here are Richardson 112 Trucker Cap alternatives that make great hats for embroidery:

The Clutch Trucker Hat

The Clutch Trucker Hat has an 80s design that triggers nostalgia without effort. Like the Richardson 112, it has a mesh back and cotton/polyester fabric for optimal ventilation and a snapback closure for easy adjustment.

However, unlike the Richardson 112, the Clutch Trucker Hat has a pre-curved visor. It also costs slightly less than the Richardson and has fewer color options. The hat is durable, and the cotton front is suitable for most brand logo, name, or slogan embroidery designs.

The Fitted Trucker

The Richardson Fitted Trucker with RFlex is an excellent Richardson 112 alternative that combines the best parts of the Clique Snapback and Clutch Trucker Hat. It also has some unique features, such as its Comfort Stretch fabric – a combination of polyester, cotton, and spandex.

The fabric blend is highly durable and versatile, making it ideal for stylish indoor and outdoor wear. Also, since the Richardson Fitted Trucker hat is available in several cool colors, you won’t have trouble finding the perfect one for your desired custom embroidery design.
