I'm in the business of making custom headbands. I started selling these locally and everyone seems to love them, so I'm going public. I finally have it down to a science once I figured out what worked the best. Every week I put up new headbands to be sold, or I do custom orders. So, here's my new little shop.

All of the headbands made from this point on have a stiff inside material to keep the shape of the headband. A NEW sweat absorbing material called Microban is built directly inside. It's an antimicrobial material that resists odor and stain causing bacteria!

I'm in the business of making custom headbands. I started selling these locally and everyone seems to love them, so I'm going public. I finally have it down to a science once I figured out what worked the best. Every week I put up new headbands to be sold, or I do custom orders. Custom orders are prepaid before I even start to make the headband. So, here's my new little shop.


All of the headbands made from this point on have a stiff inside material to keep the shape of the headband. A sweat absorbing material is built directly in the middle inside, as it absorbs just as well as if it were on the outside. The picture below is a pretty good estimate how the headband fits and the length.

Price: ALL HEADBANDS are $12 PP'd and Shipped, unless otherwise noted. ( I might even do bulk discounts, but this just started)

The goods.

Posted Image


These first ones are my earlier ones before the master plan:

Realtree wide w/o sweatband - $7 PP'd
Realtree thin w/ sweatband - $8 PP'd
Pink/Brown Argyle w/o sweatband - $8 PP'd
Blue Silk Dragon w/o sweatband - $7 PP'd (has a run in the material, will make deal if sold with another)

Newer ones:

Black w/ Gold Stars
Watermelon Rebellion
Blue/Yellow Plaid


If you guys have any questions or inquiries, PM me.


Do they work as well as Sham Wow?

Well, yes and no. It can only be a pattern that I could find to buy. Cause I don't make my own fabric, I go out and buy it. But, you just have to tell me what you want, then I'll see if I can find it. If so, I take a picture with it and send it to you to make sure you like it. Then you pay for it first, then I'll make it and send it off. I have a LOT of other fabric that I've already used and have extra, so that'd be nice if it was in there, lol.

Hey, me too! Usually around 40" - 45", depends on which fabric is being used.

These are three I have that are complete. You can see the differences.

Could you show a pic of the headband from the side, to show the thickness. And some camo patterns would be sweet, that's what I'd like to see anyway....

Well, my camera just died. I'll have to wait to take a pic from the side. On average with most of the material, the thickness at the center where the terry cloth is will be just shy of 1/4", if you were to squeeze it. Some material is heavier than others, so those will be thicker as well. This is what the headband is layer by layer

Black Cloth (Back) --> Heavy Fusible (inside) --> Terry Cloth (center of headband) --> Design Material (Front).


And some camo patterns would be sweet, that's what I'd like to see anyway....


The only current one is the helicopter camo one (which I'll show in full once my camera is alive), but I have found some RealTree material at a fabric store locally. The only real issue with those is that it costs about twice as much as all the other fabrics since it's of the denim variety. If I were to buy some, the RealTree headbands will cost around $15 USD PP'd and Shipped (lower 48 please :D). But like I said with the customs, let me know what you want or show me a picture, and I'll try to hunt down the closest kind. I only ask that you pay for the headband first so I don't go out and buy the fabric, only to be stood up.

If I can find the material, then yes. I think one of the fabric stores has a sports section, I'll check it out. Lmk if you're interested and I'll go looking.

For the camo question, this is the full helicopter design.

I found some more designs, Black on Black checker Vinyl, Fleur-de-lis Boyscout, and... Stripping firemen. I know, it's the most popular. I've also seen it in Policemen.

And, here is the finished cow print. Hot off the press. I have to use the fabric anyways. :)

Alright, I looked around. No stores in the North Texas area have it, at least as far as I've looked. I can order it, but it'll cost me $15 just to get the fabric in. So, you're headband will cost around $25, after labor, PP, and shipping on my part. Like I said, I'll do custom ones. You just have to pay first. Let me know or any other ideas you might have.

You can request a reversible one. Ninja on one side, shamrock on the other. It wouldn't cost anymore, lol.


ya wat do i send the paypal 2


So you want to spend the $25 for the Chargers one? Sure thing. Send $25.00 paypal to Steel546@AOL.com . Once I get the payment, I'll order the material and make it/ship it once it comes in. I'll guess that it'll take about a week from now.



And Kowz_76, your headband shipped today.

Cool, new news! (or something like that).

I'm actually starting up a small website for my headbands that I'll be posting pictures in of all the ones I make. You can find some stuff out about me and email me with any questions, orders, etc. I'll still check this as well, but I want you guys to check my new page! It's a free hosting thing, so like... don't get too excited.
