Our hot foil stamping machine

Our hot foil stamping machine

We have finally received our long awaited hot foil stamping machine!

Ever since the very beginning of our hat making adventure, we have been looking for the right machine to stamp our logo in gold into the sweatbands and liners of our hats. Up until now we have only had our logo in the sweatband where it was laser-engraved into the leather. Now we are finally able to imprint the leather with gold, with this new hot foil stamping machine.

Besides being able to put out logo into the hat in gold, we can now also put your name or any short message that you would like into the sweatband of your custom hat in gold, silver or black.

Getting a hat in the right size can sometimes prove quite difficult, because every hat brand’s sizes differ slightly from the next. Sometimes the difference can be as much a size and a half. 

That’s why we have made a FREE sizing kit with a special head circumference tape measure and instructions on how to find the right hat size. Get your sizing kit here.

Hornskov København - Hat sizing kit with special head circumference head measuring tape to measure your hat size.

  1. Find a mirror or someone to help you take the measurement.
  2. Open the hat size tape measure and place it on your head with the size card on your forehead. 
  3. Pull on the tape measure till it sits securely on your head. 
  4. Adjust it so it measures the widest part of your head, which in most cases is about a fingers width above the ears. 
  5. Repeat a couple of times to make sure the size it right.


If you don’t want to wait for our sizing kit you can also use a regular tape measure to measure your head at the widest point, which in most cases is about a fingers width above the ears. 

What you get in cm is essentially your hat size. So if you measured your head to be 58 cm, your hat size is 58. If you are in between two sizes we would recommend choosing the smaller of the two, as the hat will then expand a bit to take the shape of your head.
