Default Printed beanie hats

Hi, looking for some advise please.
I've been asked by my local football team to print them some beanie hats.
What is my best option? Is it worth using a stretchable HTV, or will this not be durable enough? I've also considered sublimating onto a white beanie, but am worried that the extra heat will damage it.
I do have a fairly basic embroidery machine which I use for basic jobs like name patches and martial arts belts, but I don't really want to mess about getting the logo digitized etc, plus everything takes forever to do on it.
Would be interested in opinions, as I generally just do tshirts, hoodies and mugs.
thanks!

I would definitely stick to embroidery as much as it is a pain.

Yes, I might get my tshirt wholesaler to embroider them as they have a 12 head machine and I have a little Brother innovis F440e. It would probably take me all day what they could do in 20 minutes!

I struggle with thicker fabrics to be honest. I can never seem to get the tension right, or maybe it's the pull compensation. For instance I embroider martial arts belts but I'm never 100% happy with the results. The text always seems a bit off, like the vertical parts seem a bit thin and the horizontal parts seem ok.

I guess it's my lack of knowledge, but there is nobody near me that does training. I end up doing a lot of trial and error and I can imagine that embroidering 20 beanie hats would take me forever!

Its an innovis f440e
