Hard Hat Artwork Requirements
All hard hats require a vectorized logo for printing.
Acceptable Adobe Illustrator Files
All hard hats require a vectorized logo for printing. Vector art consists of lines and curves that are mathematically defined objects. When viewing art in keyline mode you can see the points or vectors connecting your lines and curves. They can also be seen when using the pen tool or editing the points along a path. Vector art is ideal for type and drawn shapes because they can be enlarged to any size while maintaining crisp outlines and details without sacrificing quality. The distance between vectors is calculated mathematically and is not dependent upon resolution.
Logo Conversion Fees
If you do not have an acceptable file, we offer a vectorization service to recreate most logos for $35. You will receive a copy of the logo file once it is completed. Payment must be received prior to us recreating your logo in a vector format.
Convert all text to outlines. If this is not possible, please provide all fonts. TrueType fonts are preferred.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I add a logo to a hard hat?
Yes! You can add up to four logos onto your hard hat. We can print on the front, back, right side and left side of most hard hats. We can print up to four colors per logo.
How do you print the logo? Is it a sticker?
No, we do not print decals. We use a high quality ink to print directly onto the hat. It is cured so water and weather do not wash it off. We color match your logo to a specific pantone color. This process is the reason we have specific print areas for each hard hat. This results in a higher quality product than a decal.
How many logos can I print on one hat?
You can print up to four logos on each hat. The front, back, left and right sides all have a print area.
What is the print area for the hard hats?
Each hat has a different print area. It also depends on how many colors you have in your logo. Each hard hat will have the print size listed on the product page.
Example: A two color logo on the front of the MSA V-gard hard hat has the maximum print area of 2.875" W x 2" H
Can my logo have as many colors as I want?
Since we print with ink directly onto the hard hats with a pad printing process, our limit per logo is four colors. Keep in mind that if your logo exceeds this amount, our graphic designers would love to work with you to design or implement a plan to reduce your logo to four colors or less by still keeping your brand consistent.
Are there artwork fees?
The only art fee involved is if you agree to have our graphic designers redesign your logo to the correct format for print. The file necessary for print is an .AI or .EPS file. The files need to be vectorized. If you only have a jpeg, pdf, png or any other file type feel free to send us over the logo so we can have a look. The art fee is $35 and you get to keep the file when we are finished! This file will be at your disposal for future use.
Can I customize my hard hat with names?
Absolutely! We actually encourage it! This is what makes our company unique. We offer both a great quality product, as well as the option to customize. You can select the "add name" option for each location on the hard hat. Feel free to let us know which font and color to use for the names to ensure your satisfaction with the customization.
Do you have to order a certain amount of hats?
You can order as many hats as you need. We do have a minimum order fee of $50 if you order less than 36 hard hats. Please contact us for a custom quote if you are looking to order a variety of different colors and styles.
Can I order one sample hat to see if I like it?
Although we guarantee a quality product, we understand that your brand identity means a lot to you and you need to make sure the colors and quality are spot-on. For that reason, you can simply order a sample hat with our without printing. If the sample needs printing, we do need to charge the $50 fee for the first order. If you decide to order more hats in the future you will not be charged the $50 fee again if you order more than 35 hats.
