How do I Start the Process of Ordering a Custom Lapel Pin, Challenge Coin, Jewel or Embroidered Patch?

In general, the process starts with an email or phone call. We need to know the following:

  2. What do YOU have in mind for the intended product design? Theme, organization name, number, location, imagery, etc.
  3. What is your timeline?
  4. What quantity will you need?
  5. What is your budget, if any?

With these things in mind, Fratline will develop a complimentary (FREE) design for your consideration. Once the design is approved, we can accurately quote the project for you.

How do I Measure for My Hat Size?

Fratline offers a variety of Fraternal head wear that is custom made to your hat size including: York Rite Royal Arch and Council caps, Knights Templar Chapeaux, Scottish Rite caps and Shrine Fezzes. Here is how to measure your head to determine the proper hat size when ordering:

Using a cloth tape measure or string, measure the circumference of your head with the tape or string placed ONE FINGERS WIDTH above the eyebrow and TWO FINGERS WIDTH above the top of the ear. The tape measure or string should not be too loose or tight. Pinch the tape or string where the end meets the tape and remove. For example, if the tape shows 23", your hat size is a 7-3/8. Use the chart below to determine your proper hat size.
