You most likely recognize Smart Blonde as the source for cool wholesale signs. Looking for a durable aluminum parking sign? Absolutely. Want license plates with custom images for your man cave?

Smart Blonde Wholesale Novelty Hats

When you buy hats in bulk from Smart Blonde, they’re not just hats. They’re a way to demonstrate your personality, your interests, your inner thoughts — your panache. 

Wholesale Headwear Options and Details

Show off your style with our mounted 4" x 2.2" metal patches on our 6-panel SnapBack or Velcro Closer Hats. Yep, real metal patches. They’re the exact size of our mini license plates! This would be because they are our mini license plates. In fact, you can order other designs by ordering our Mini License Plates (MLP) to give your customers multiple designs to choose from, then put in the order comments if you want us to pre-bend them for use with hats. Alternatively, you might want them pre-bent for some other reason. For putting on a telephone pole? Decorating a steam pipe? The possibilities are endless.

Tell Me More About the Metal Patches on Your Wholesale Headwear

Can do! All of our metal patches, aka mini license plates, are made out of .025-grade aluminum. We dye sublimate the designs onto the metal to give a quality high gloss finish. Our metal patches are firmly attached using double-cap rivets to give the patch an elegant, tight-fitting look.

What Kind of Hats Can I Order?

When you buy wholesale hats in bulk, you get any of our standard license plate designs and themes, such as:

  • Animals and Pets
  • Automotive
  • Beaches
  • Bigfoot
  • Firefighters/Police
  • Flags
  • Military
  • Political
  • Religious
  • Seasonal/Holiday
  • State Backgrounds and Outlines
  • Zombies

And if you want to, you can even create your own custom design. You might have a specific logo or type of branding for your business that customers would want to have on their heads without the trouble of getting a forehead tattoo. Instead, you can order bulk hats so that if you ever change your branding, your customers won’t have to get their forehead tattoos removed or covered over.

We should also mention that our signs are made in the USA. All of our metal products are made in the USA. So if you want to support American workers, here’s an excellent chance to do just that!

How Are They Made?

The hats are comfortable and made with quality and care! They come in two styles:

  1. SnapBack: If you love that good old-fashioned adjustable ballcap that makes a satisfying zipper sound when you pull the two snap straps apart, this is the one for you
  2. Velcro Closer: With Velcro, you can adjust it to get the exact size you want, and you get to hear that high-decibel tearing sound

You can also select from a variety of colors and whether you want mesh or cotton:

  • Khaki Black Trucker/Mesh (SnapBack)
  • Black Trucker/Mesh (SnapBack)
  • Charcoal Cotton (Velcro Closer)
  • Black Cotton (Velcro Closer)
  • Pink Cotton (Velcro Closer)
  • Camo Cotton (Velcro Closer)

So if you want to give customers the option of one particular metal patch with a plethora of hat colors and styles, you can! If you want one style with a smorgasbord of metal patch designs, that’s awesome. 

What Are the Ordering Criteria for Wholesale Hats?

As a wholesaler, we require a $150 minimum order. Mostly, this means retailers order our hats for sale to their customers, but you might be a business looking for cool corporate gifts for employees and clients. Maybe you might want $150 worth of hats for your own head. As long as you meet the minimum, you can order what you like.

Smart Blonde also has tiered discounts! They are:

  • 4% off orders over $250

  • 12% off orders over $5,000
  • 15% off orders over $12,000

Also, we provide free shipping for all orders over $600, as long as they ship within the continental United States.

Can I Get a Tax Exemption?

If you’re a wholesaler, yes! If you’re shipping your orders to any of the following states, you’ll need an up-to-date, completed, and signed resale certificate to avoid sales tax:

  • Arizona
  • Florida
  • Georgia
  • Illinois
