Sciencemadness Patches!

Hello Sciencemadness!
I've been thinking about making some patches to promote SM which could be sewn onto lab coats and other cloth items. Here is the design so far:

The dimensions will be about 2.5" tall and 1.5" wide, and all 100% embroidered.
Would any of you be interested in buying one? The price should be around $5 including shipping, with$0.50 of every purchase being donated to SM.
This is just to gauge interest and determine what type of design to use, I should buy and potentially start distributing them in July.
I hope you like the idea and design, any suggestions and constructive criticisms are welcome.
So, what do you think?

I can't remember who it was but someone recently posted in one of the pictures threads showing that he had the logo embroidered on his lab coat. I thought I might do the same -- now that I have a lab coat.

Nice! I'm interested to see how it turned out, if anyone can find the photo.

Just so you guys know this isn't some capitalist venture, I just really wanted a patch and they're much cheaper to buy in bulk, so I thought why not promote SM at the same time!

How about a price reduction at a tattoo chain for bulk customers.
You could have it tattooed on your own favourite location.

I agree!

I would certainly buy one.
I'm a sticker, and patch kind of guy. If I use someones product I proudly fly there banner.

Point, and case...

What about a shirt with this design? Having a patch on a lab coat that you only wear at home doesn't exactly promote SM.

Fear is what you get when caution wasn't enough.

So you would prefer just this?

I like the simplicity, but it might be harder to get embroidered. I'd like to know which design other members prefer before I rule either design out.

I know Zts16 has made some wonderful SM shirts, which you should check out. Let me see if I can find a link...
In terms of not promoting sciencemadness, I will probably end up attaching a patch to my backpack. You aren't limited to the lab coat, feel free to sew it any where you like.

Yes !

I'll buy 4 t-shirts with that as the logo.

A print will do - does not have to be embroidered.

If embroidered, then a small logo top left of the t-shirt, about where a Star Trek communicator sigil thingy would be.

Then where will you wear the communicator?

Think ahead silly!

I would actually buy a few of the patches because of the cool factor.
One on my leather, one on my riding armor, and one on the lab apron.

Actually 4 because I do need a pack for riding...

Great, I'm glad you're all interested.
I talked to the sewing company and making the edges of the flame and circle the edge of the patch would be fine.
So would you prefer that or the other original rectangular patch?

I would like the boxless version. Consider some resizing. Bigger "O" giving better resolution to text and a wider, slightly shorter flame. Look great on Lab Coat!

Shirt good too.

I'd like to see some stickers and decals as well. My telescope, computer, and boxes of odds and ends could use some.

I think I will get my lab coat embroidered. It could be cool.
If there was a run of stickers, I would be in for a few of those as well.

Sencond that emotion.

Flame/no border.

Can you make hats? how about a car wrap? Maybe matching Boxers? How about a stencil kit. You know the ones that come with paint, and brushes, in a mahogany gift box?

Oh, and a pair of old school gym socks with the logo in the wide color stripe area would be super nice.

If not the flame/no border will be cool.

Thanks for thinking of us, and offering this. That is the cool part.

Alright, border less it is!
Aga, I'll be ordering them in the next week. They should take a few weeks to be made and arrive, so expect them to be available in about a month. And yes paypal will be ideal.
For those of you interested in shirts I think zts16 will post some pictures soon...

Yep, I made a shirt. I hadn't been planning on selling them though. I designed it and ordered it from VistaPrint. It cost about \$12 with shipping and everything, so quite affordable when you order directly from them. It would be quite a bit pricier if I was to order more of these shirts, have them shipped to me, and then ship them all over the world. Plus, everyone probably has different preferences as to what they want to put on the shirts. Instead, I do believe it is possible for me to share the design on VistaPrint with anyone interested, and then if you want a shirt, you can order it from them, they can ship directly to you, and it's cheaper, faster, and easier for everyone. Or of course, you could design your own if you don't like mine at all. Here's what mine looks like:

Front/Back

Also, VistaPrint lets you buy a ton of other little branded knick-knacks if you're interested (pens, coffee cups, etc). I didn't get any of those, but they were actually pretty affordable for the most part.

I've talked briefly with Polverone about it, and he's fine with it as far as I know. After all, nothing malicious is going on here, we're just spreading the image of a great forum!
