X-Trail Caps Anyone?


Hi Guys,

I have located an X-Trail Cap overseas but the supplier doesn't have enough stock so I can import them.

Given the summer season is upon us and the "slip, slop, slap" motto is well and truly a good one to follow, in addition that this xtrail cap would be a nice item for any xtrail owner, I need your feedback.

I will try and have these caps made (printed or stitch embossed locally) if there is enough interested in them from members of this forum and their friends.

Please let me know if you'll be interested and if you can recommend a local business who might be able to help.

I estimate the price of these caps would be around the $25-$30 mark (based on the overseas price) but that depends on the quotes I'll get here of course.

Have a look at the sample I will be getting from overseas soon.

Re: X-Trail Caps Anyone?


I'm a real baseball type cap wearer - summer and winter.

Love the idea of an X-T cap and this one looks pretty good...

But, if you are going to have them produced "locally" then you could tinker with the design or create another one..

IMHO, the one in the picture doesn't show a great deal of "imagination".

If intended just for the AU market, then you could "personalize" them even further (but I do hope that you go more generic and International with any design).

You'd pay a "design, set-up" fee at the outset but thereafter it would just be production costs - - you would obviously have to factor that into the selling price.

That's my feed back.

Cheers

Roger,

Thanks for the feedback, but do you have a design in mind? International one sounds good, but what more international can it be other than the X-TRAIL logo itself?

 emoticon OK, Jalal

The hat is a great idea, however we think we can do better with the design.

The design pictured doesn't have the same quality feel to it that we expect from our XTrail.

If we are going to have a cap, the logo could look better. We rather like your red Xtrail Factor picture that scrolls through on your postings, from your home page.

We have very creative embroidery services in Australia, with cap embroidery businesses in most Westfield shopping centres, so we should be able to come up with something a bit more interesting than they have overseas.

Something in Silver (chrome, lmho) and Red thread with black could look very attractive, I would think.

Although caps are popular, would there be any opportunity to do up some "bucket hats" too - thinking of your little tackers here (and Anita who gets sunburnt in 15 minutes or less), where a baseball cap doesn't cover enough to prevent sunburn.

If we can, as a forum come up with a design that we all like, does anyone know whether we could register it so that it could be replicated by the local embroidery businesses, rather than having to bulk order from interstate or overseas?

Keeping it local and relevant

Thanks Greg & Anita,

If you're thinking of the xtrail factor logo I have created on my personal home page (below) then am afraid I can't use that exact logo, because it will be copy right (of Optus I think) but we can do something similar.

Does anyone like the xtrail logo and slogan displayed in my signature? emoticon I think this will be an international one indeed emoticon

Those Westfield businesses are pretty expensive as they pay the high rent through their nose, therefore prices would be far from being competitive I would think.

Good suggestion about the bucket hats too.

Keep the suggestions and ideas coming.

 Jalal,
   Love the idea of the caps, but agree a better design is needed. Your signature logo is good, but I don't go much on the red coloure as shown in the original post.

Brett, if you leave the design to me, it'll be chrome all over (including the cap/hat) hahahaha

I have never seen a chrome cap before and you will be spotted from miles away wearing it LOL

The -X- inside my signature box looks like a good colour to have on a black hat (and any other colour background for that matter I think) being red&white will make it stand out heaps and would give it some depth and definition.

Agree. And it would be a fairly simple design to replicate.

Here's a link to some custom design hats and their prices seem reasonable and would be even better with some volume...

Fair enough Justin, I had to show you guys something to give you an idea and my grandmother is not around to do anything fancy, so I used what I had emoticon

There are plenty of good ideas in this thread and I look forward to receive some more before the next step.
