Default Has Anybody Used Flock on Hats?

I'm going to make some hats for a softball and have several options for the logo. They are polyester mesh hats, so I can sublimate them or cut and heat applied vinyl. Then I thought of using Flock. I think Flock might actually look the best, since it probably looks closest to an embroidered look. I was wondering if anybody ever used flock on hats (or sports mesh) and how it turned out.

Thanks
rusty

I wonder if Josh has tried flock on mesh?

It seems like it would work fine in theory.

I was just thinking... and I think flock would look awesome on, like canvas khaki hats, especially if you could do 2-color? Does anybody know if you can apply flock on top of flock, like you can with vinyl? That doesn't really answer my mesh hat question, but thought it would be cool to try.

I think my hat press was supposed to have arrived today, but I'm out of town . I'll give everybody an update and maybe some pics once I try it out.

I think I read here that flock on flock won't work because of the texture. The backing won't stick to the top texture.

That sounds logical. Or I guess you could just try to butt-register the 2 colors so both adhere to the hat. Or maybe flock on top of vinyl? Sounds like I have a lot of stuff to try out

Yes, as far as I know flock will work. flock works on cotton, cotton/poly & 100% polyester. caps are like a mini mesh poly so I believe you will not have any problems.

I'm pretty sure you cannot flock on flock.

A very nice combination is to use twill & tack it down with flock.

Cut your design out with pressure sensitive twill. Althought pressure sensitive, twill still have to be sewn in to make permanent. Instead of thread, cut an outline with flock and overlap the edges of the twill to hold it down. Great, professional look.

What the flock!? this is good stuff! Flock will work on mesh but not on itself (I tried).

Thanks! That sounds great. I have a tone of twill to experiment with.
