The Riley Hopkins Compatible Hat Champ allows you to print 6 panel Caps and will fit any press! We have 4 different platens available for your cap printing needs including: Standard (Included), Low Profile, Low Low Profile, and Slotted Visor. The Slotted Visor Attachment allows you to print on visors that are very short in height. A slot across the platen securely holds a very small amount of material, leaving most of the visor material to print on. The platens are exchangeable, they thumb screw on and off so you can print on all types of caps and visors. The platens come with two removable foam pads, one with a groove for ease in printing on the seamed six panel caps. Compatible with Riley Hopkins, Hopkins, Workhorse, Caps and other presses with arm dims 3.75" Wide x 2.75" Tall 

*The hat champ ships from the manufacturer in Colorado.  Please allow 2-3 days for your order to ship.

Poor design

by -

This product is poorly designed and does NOT work on a structured cap like they state. You might be able to print on a foam hat but that would be it. And they charge a re-stocking fee to return. Do not recommend to anyone, don't waste your money.

Works under strict limited constraints.


I purchased the Hat Champ to print on baseball caps. It has some limitations. The size of the print is limited to a maximum size of 4.75" wide by 2.75" tall. It's not a bad size but it's smaller than you want sometimes.

<br>It is also not a great option for structured hats that have a stiffer front panel area as the hat has to flatten completely and wrap around the small platen surface to offer a good flat print surface. This product works well with flexible foam trucker hats and 5-panel soft caps that don't have a seam running down the middle.


<br>I sometimes use this product but often, I just burn my screens inverted and print heat transfers to use on a heat press for hats.


<br>I paid a bit over $425 for this product and I feel it's expensive given its limitations.
