The process begins with a UV activated dye that is impregnated into poly/nylon threads for the hat fabric. It's a permanent process that will last as long as the hat, and the fabric is machine washable. The hats are white indoors and change to a color in sunlight.
The hats come in a choice of four light changing colors: purple, magenta, blue and green. Yellow, orange and red are being added. A different color fabric is used on the visor of baseball caps, which does not change in the sunlight, and complements the color when it changes. The company also offers hats in a pinwheel effect, with alternating panels of regular and light changing fabric. Stock baseball caps are offered in a minimum of two dozen units for a wholesale cost of $6.95 a unit. As a blank unit, suggested retail is about $15 per hat. Many retailers add imprints or embroidery, and that raises the typical retail price to $22.95 a unit or more.
All units are packaged for pegboard display and have art that shows how they work indoors and out. A point of sale poster is also available. The minimum order for custom styles is 144 units, and virtually all hat styles are available.
