Customizable Swim Cap Designs Using Vinyl
If you are part of a swimming club representing it in competitions and winning medals or simply someone who loves to do a few laps to stay healthy, you can now swim across the pool in style. Flaunt not only your backstroke but your personalized, captivating swim cap as well.
Making a personal brand is what all of today’s social media is about and what consumers are interested in. The unique appeal of an individual is what has helped accelerate the influencer culture.
How do these people do it? The answer is simple, they stand out. If you too wish to build a personal brand or add a unique flair to your style or life, we have just the thing for you: vinyl. Vinyl allows you to express your individuality and cultivate your style like never before.
Vinyl is so popular these days that it is even used for sportswear. The latest fad in activewear is customizable swim caps. This headwear is not your usual choice for personalization but is now becoming increasingly popular.
Benefits And Uses
The usual use of swim caps include keeping hair out of your face while swimming, protection from chlorine damage and reducing drag from wet hair. While you are so elegantly swimming across the pool, the people around notice your gear and admire it. Customized swim caps help you feel more confident when competing in the sport. Also, it is great for marketing and promoting team spirit as we shall discuss below.
Designs For A Swim Cap
Customizing your swim cap gives you great freedom to pick and choose what color or design goes with your persona or your team colors. Here are a few design ideas to help you come up with your own DIY swim cap:
1. Team Mascot/ Emblem:
A signature color and designated logo promotes solidarity and team spirit for people who are active competitors in swimming. It also helps identify your team, and people are more likely to recognize you. This makes your team distinguishable and is an excellent marketing tool. It also attracts a fan base.
Teams such as those of basketball and soccer have benefited massively from strategically placed logos and mascots. You can also make customized vinyl decals that represent your team and place them on your swim cap for everyone to see.
Once you start getting recognition for your team and skills, well established brands are most likely to reach out to you for sponsorship deals. They will want to place their logos alongside yours to make it visible to the audience. Therefore, swim caps will likely be a target for brands to add their logos on.
3. Something Beachy:
If you do not swim competitively that does not mean that you should shy away from customizing your swim cap as it can make the sport even more joyful. You can add sparkly or glittery vinyl decals that emulate beach vibes for example seashells or ocean waves or even mermaids.
If that seems too feminine for you, use some plain gray HTV and add shark fins on your swim cap. Even fish scales make for a unique yet mesmerizing decal.
4. Inspirational Quotes:
People need an extra push when it comes to stepping out of their comfort zone. Motivational quotes and affirmations provide just that. Adding a quote as simple as ‘Keep Going’ or ‘I Can Do it’ helps you gain confidence in yourself and surpass your own expectations.
For example, if you are someone who is afraid of deep water as many people are, constant reassurance can help you overcome that fear. Add a quote using vinyl to your swim cap and feel the difference.
5. Abstract Art:
Sometimes we want something sleek, simple and not over the top. In those cases, abstract art is a good choice. Abstract includes shapes, colors and lines meshed together to form art.
For your swim cap, you can cut up small triangles of HTV in different colors and add them on. Semi circles and lines are also a popular customization in swim caps. Play around with colors and patterns to see what fits your style the best.
6. Just The Borders:
You can even embellish just the borders of your swim cap with an amazing linear design. Blazing fire on the sides of the cap only is also a good idea. Little stars or fish along the border will also make your cap distinctive.
