About Us

Hello and welcome to Printing Studio, creators of custom promotional headwear to help companies expand their brand. We do this by creating made-to-order leather patch hats for all styles used as corporate/team wear, promotional items for customers, employees, field service teams, in-store/e-commerce sales, or loyalty programs.

We carry a wide variety of premium brands, including '47 Brand, TravisMathew, New Era, Nike, Atlantis Headwear, Legacy, Richardson, Imperial, Flexfit, Dri-Duck, Under Armour, Callaway, Brooks Brothers, and Carhartt.

Printing Studio primarily uses genuine leather and has selected Hermann Oak Expedition 1881 top grain or Bridle leather for our patches. It's 100% vegetable-tanned with organic plant-based materials (e.g., leaves, bark, acorns), so there are no harmful environmental effects.  Located in St. Louis, Missouri, the Hermann Oak Leather Company started in 1881 and supplied the local harness trade and wagon trains of settlers along the Lewis and Clark Trail. So, a lot of neat history behind our leather.

Leather Patch Color Options

A note about the darker leather colors. When choosing the perfect material for your project, we highly recommend considering our exquisite Black Faux option over Black. Uniquely, it engraves in a stunning Silver finish, which not only enhances the visibility of your design but also adds a touch of elegance and contrast, making your piece truly stand out.

We understand the appeal of our deeper, richer tones, such as the classic Black and the luxurious Chocolate options. However, it's worth noting that designs engraved on these materials appear in black, which can sometimes result in a subtler contrast. While this can produce a beautifully understated effect, it may pose a challenge for those desiring a more pronounced and easily discernible outcome.

Opting for the Black Faux with Silver engraving ensures that your design is both striking and easily visible, offering a captivating visual effect that is sure to impress. We believe this option marries the best of both worlds – the sophistication of a dark base with the remarkable clarity of Silver engraving.

We're here to assist you in making the best choice for your needs, ensuring that your project not only meets but exceeds your expectations. 


We cut and engrave our leather patches using lasers to produce a perfect patch. Our laser motors can control motion to a thousandth of an inch, and the laser can focus down to the width of a human hair. Combined, these technologies create leather patch prints with exquisite detail and precision. Using Live Camera Preview technology, we can capture the design overlay on the material to provide digital pre-production images of your patch. Like a camera, our laser has a fully automatic focusing system to cut and engrave on thick and thin materials. Before each patch print, the height is measured with exacting precision using onboard camera technology to be sure our patches print perfectly every time.
