Our 3 Custom Products of the Week, as Seen on Instagram

Sometimes we feel like the social media fashion runways are taken from our product lineup. Check out the Instagram sightings that inspired this week’s free 10% quantity-increases on patches, pins and everyone’s favorite, “dad caps” (we explain at the bottom).


Instagrammers @ColeCannoli and @CoverAllDoll are rocking fashion-grade patches in some of the most prevalent styles for patches this year — giving new life to denim. Patches can turn any boring piece of blue into a wearable Pinterest board, showing off your interests, associations and more. Start up your custom patch order and claim 10% more with this link this week only— and when you get your free design, be sure to ask about special options like glow-in-the dark thread, sequins, outdoors-ready PVC and more.


Our spider senses are tingling over @GetaLifeDesign’s fresh take on a classic “lapel” pin, showing that you don’t have to own a regular jacket lapel to wear them. Meanwhile, @Kdamadeem points to the trend of pins jumping off lapels and showing up on bags, hats or in-hand as collectibles and giveaways. Spidey’s face is an excellent example of “soft enamel,” a technique where the enamel on the pin is polished for a “recessed” depth effect. That’s something we do alongside pin molding for ultra-sculpted shapes, faces, logos and more. This week only, get 10% more custom lapel pins, free — use this link!

Dad Hats

It’s the ultimate dad joke. Once lame and “you’re embarrassing me, dad!” dad hats are now hip. So what is it?

@Culturalurbanwear and @Dear_designer nail the essentials: a over-curled bill and a nice big embroidered logo unrelated to the rest of your outfit, just like dad wore when he picked you up you and your date from the movies. Hats with curved bills and embroidered anything are our specialties — so take our custom dad hat skills for a spin with 10% free quantity on all orders!

Whether you’re on the bleeding edge of fashion or just trying to look like your dad, The/Studio provides the manufacturing expertise and equipment to create everything fashion. Free design helps you start from scratch on your product or polish up an existing logo or sketch — and free shipping helps you save potentially hundreds of dollars. Dad would be proud.
