Hard Hat Artwork Requirements

All hard hats require a vectorized logo for printing. 

Acceptable Adobe Illustrator Files

  • .eps

Vector Logos

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 the 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

Does this cap style come in any other colors?

Yes. Check out the MSA V-Gard style main page to view all available colors.

What is the minimum order amount?

The minimum order amount is 20 hard hats.

Does this hard hat protect against electric shock?

Indeed, this hat complies with ANSI Z89.1 regulations and satisfies OSHA standards. It is classified as a Type 1 helmet, created to shield workers from downward impacts and has been rigorously tested to endure up to 20,000 volts of electricity (Class E).

Can I wear a baseball hat under my MSA standard hard hat?

It is not safe to wear ball caps under a hard hat. However, hoodies, beanies, or bandanas are acceptable to wear underneath a hard hat without sacrificing safety.

According to

“if the use of a garment were to detract from the hard hat's protective properties, it may no longer meet the specification requirements in these ANSI standards.” Since thick, structured hats like baseball hats can adversely affect the way the hard hat fits, they may compromise the protection hard hats should provide. Instead, consider winter liners designed specifically for your model of hard hat. They’ll provide extra cushioning and warmth without affecting fit or protection.
