The Epic New Era Journey[-]
For more than 100 years, New Era’s been going strong. Here are some notable milestones on the company’s journey to becoming a brand that’s known, loved and worn worldwide.[-]
German immigrant and skilled craftsman Ehrhardt Koch wanted to redesign the process of making “fashion headwear.” In 1920, he borrowed money from his sister to start New Era Cap Co. In the first year alone, Koch’s baby business turned out 60,000 Gatsby-style caps.
Ehrhardt’s son, Harold Koch, joined the business, and noticed that consumers were excited about professional baseball. New Era took a risk and brought a totally new item to the marketplace: the baseball cap. The company produced its first professional baseball cap in 1934 for the Cleveland Indians’ uniforms.
By 1950, New Era had little to no competition, as it was the only independent cap maker supplying baseball caps to 16 big league baseball teams, including the Brooklyn Dodgers, Cincinnati Reds and Detroit Tigers. In 1954, Harold designed New Era’s fitted 59FIFTY cap with a contemporary look.
In 1993, New Era enjoyed the prestige of being named the exclusive supplier of on-field baseball caps for Major League Baseball. Then, in 1996, the brand created custom, fashion headwear for Spike Lee.
After dominating the MLB as the official on-field cap, New Era decided to get exclusive with some of America’s other largest sports leagues. In 2012, New Era became the NFL’s official sideline cap, and in 2016 the NBA’s official on-court cap.
Besides its licensed MLB, NBA and NFL sports apparel, New Era has also created lots of TV and movie entertainment hats, for Power Rangers, Elf, Space Jam, Star Wars and The Goonies.

Your Most Burning Questions About Custom New Era Apparel & Accessories, Answered[-]
Now that you’ve selected the right custom New Era style for your employees or gift recipients, you probably have questions about how we get your logo or message onto these in-demand brand name pieces as eye-catching embroidery. Here are the top things our customer service reps hear about how we stitch your logo on your custom New Era gear.[-]
Q. I’ve never bought New Era clothing or headwear before. I only have a small image of my logo. Will that work?[-]
Yes! It’s so easy you’ll want to do it again and again! All you need to do is upload it into our Design Studio, and we’ll take it from there. Our embroidery specialists have converted more than 100,000 corporate logos into stitch-ready files, so you can be confident that your custom New Era t-shirt, fleece, jacket, hat or other item will be an excellent representation of your brand. If you have any preferences on the logo size, colors or location on your embroidered New Era item, just add them in the notes sections.
A general rule of thumb is to keep your logo less than 4 inches wide by 2.25 inches tall. Since some items have a lot of space, you can go a bit larger if you like. Remember, larger logos or artwork may cost more if they require more stitches.
The best size for embroidered text lettering is 1/4 inch (6.3mm) or taller. We recommend a block font that doesn’t contain any fine details less than 1/16 inch (1.5mm) wide.
Q. I don’t want my logo on my custom New Era item. I might just want some block text embroidered on it. Is that possible?[-]
Yes, absolutely. Simply visit our online Design Studio and create artwork using text only. You can choose from different block fonts, along with other fancy and script fonts. There’s no setup fee or conversion process required for any embroidered logos that you create in our Design Studio.
