50% off orders over $450

If your order is over $450 (a wholesale order), I can give you a wholesale discount of 50%. However, I haven't figured out how to offer this discount through Paypal so I can't make it automatic online. If you are interested, email me the order details of what you want to purchase and where you want the order shipped and I will confirm with you the total and where to send me the check.

Purchase by the master box

We have surplus on the following styles. Order these select styles by the masterpack we obtained from the factory and save big. You must purchase the entire box, we will not break open the box to mix and match styles. The prices are too low to display here (and may not be combined with other discounts). Email me if you are interested.

About "Us"

My name is Henry, welcome. I set up foldablehats.com to sell the remaining inventory of twist-and-fold hats our family business once imported for traditional mail order companies. That business failed when the mail order companies downsized their operations and we were left with tons of inventory in our hands with no good channel to move the product quickly. I escaped the family business and found a new job (yay for me) and I moved the remaining (thousands of pcs) hats to a storage facility and now I process these orders in my spare time, which is usually on the weekend or a few times a week. Since I'm running this as a bare minimum operation, please forgive me if I don't provide a phone number to call (I'm working), if it takes me a while to return emails (but I'm usually very good about it), and if I can't expedite your order during holidays. But in most other regards I am highly flexible. I've processed over 3000 individual orders using Google Checkout and have maintained a near 5 star rating except for times when I have been out sick or I never receive the emails that folks claim they are sending to me, or they're using a browser that doesn't work well with Google Checkout.
Update:Google Checkout recently announced that they are closing for good. Boo... Google gave up. So I have switched to Paypal as the quickest solution to take payments.

When are orders processed?

Orders are processed approximately every 3-5 days. Most people receive their hats within a week to 15 days (but often sooner).

What are the hat sizes?

As you would expect from this kind of product, the hat sizes are one-size-fits-most. The circumference around the forehead area is about 24 inches. The forehead height is about 3.5 inches and tapers to a smaller circumference of 18 inches at the top of the head. The children's rain hat is about 25% smaller with a circumference of 21 inches at the base, tapering to a circumference of 16 inches at the top.

How much is the shipping?

There is a flat rate shipping of $4.99 for all orders in the USA.

Do you ship internationally?

For international orders there is a shipping and handling fee of $18.88. For larger orders the international shipping cost is very expensive for me and the shipping cost will need to be adjusted. In such cases I will contact you first to explain the discrepancy.
Update. After switching to Paypal, I have trouble shipping international orders because my shipping software requires a phone number and Paypal won't give it to me. So for the time being I'm not offering shipping to international countries outside of the USA.

Can you call me back so I can order over the phone?

Sorry. I don't have a physical card charging machine to process your credit card number directly. The credit card processing is handled by PayPal, which protects your privacy and I don't have to worry about security.

Can I pay by check?

I don't have a mail box for business use at the moment, so I prefer not to receive checks unless you're ordering a large wholesale order (over $300 prefered).

Can I get replacement chin-strap beads?

Not all hats actually come with beads. The early batches were meant to be tied at the neck. Later batches included the chin-strap bead thingy. I don't have any spare beads.

Will I receive a confirmation email when I order and when the order ships?

You should receive an immediate confirmation from Paypal when you successfully place your order using Paypal. You will (probably) receive an email from Stamps.com when I ship your order. I say probably because their integration doesn't automatically select the email so I have to manually check mark it and sometimes I forget. I'm only human.

What are the hats made of?

The sun hats are made of 100% cotton, except for the nylon sun hats, those are made of um... nylon. The rain hats are made of water resistent nylon with PVC backing so that it resists water leaking at the seams. The wire rim is made of stiff yet flexible galvanized steel.

Return Policy

I recommend you purchase one piece to see if you like what you receive. If you are not satisfied, I'm open to the idea of simply refunding your money (minus shipping and handling), don't sending anything back to me, just email me. For orders more than $25, especially bulk orders there are no returns and no refunds. So, do not order in bulk unless you know what you're getting.

Email Contact
