Remove Embroidered New Era Logo From Hat

Remove Embroidered New Era Logo From Hat

If you’re like many others here, you’ve probably seen people removing the New Era logo from their hats using a seam ripper, a process some of us call a “logo-ectomy.” I’ve done this myself on about a dozen hats and wanted to share my method in this article. I hope you find it helpful!

Materials Needed

  • Seam Ripper: The main tool you’ll need. I use the official Uni Watch seam ripper.
  • Tweezers: These make it easy to remove stubborn threads.
  • Painter’s Tape: Used to pull any remaining threads off the hat.

Step-by-Step Instructions

Have a good seam ripper. You might want tweezers in case the threads are hard to grab. Painter’s tape is also handy for picking up strays.

Starting The Process

Start by going into the hat from the inside. You want to start on the left side. The threads are thicker and will be easier to cut through with the seam ripper. Be patient. The first few hats might take an hour. Once you get used to doing it, you can get them done in about 30 minutes.

Using the seam ripper, cut the threads on the inside first. It’s easier to remove the threads on the outside once you have cut the threads on the inside. After you cut the threads on the inside, switch to the outside of the hat. Those threads you should be able to pull out now.

Flipping the Hat

Once you have cut a good section, you can flip the hat over and continue to work from the outside. Also, go inside as needed.

Finishing Up

At this stage, you have probably removed most of the threads. Grab some painter’s tape. You can use the painter’s tape to roll any linties left on the inside and outside of the hat.

Tips and Tricks

  • Take your time to avoid fraying the actual hat threads.
  • Start from the inside of the logo as it makes the outside threads easier to remove.
  • Be patient and persistent. It may take time, but the results are worth it.

Final Thoughts

Once all the threads are removed, there may be a faint outline where the logo used to be, but it won’t be noticeable from a distance. This process can give your hat a cleaner, logo-free look. I hope you found this tutorial helpful. Feel free to share your tips and experiences as well.
