Board: T-shirts! Patches! Paraphernalia!
Ditto. I sew them all on, even if it's an iron-on. I don't want to risk having gunk on my bag if I ever decide to take it off. Tuatha'an

I have always sewn them on, hate that gunk. However with all these fancy waterproof/breathable backpacks now I hate to ruin my latest expensive purchase by making needle holes in it. I have taken to sewing my patches onto my car rug. YT

I always sew rather than stick. The backpack I currently use is quite thick material and would be almost impossible to sew. So I have sewn my badges to a widestrip of what I believe is called petersham ribbon (the stuff nurses belts used to made of)...

I have a shirt. AP Schmidt (Janine Devine) taught me this trick when we were both at GS camp in the 80s. Pick a light-weight (wish I'd remembered this part) long, long _sleeved_ shirt of a color you can stand to wear year round. Hers was striped, mine...

Ooo I like both those ideas, I fear some car rug unpicking is going to happen! YT

Good idea but what would put me off is that some badges/patches seem to be allergic to washing :-) Some fade or disintegrate after a couple washes. But as all LBing badges are top quality that won't be problem, will it?. DM

Well, if you can't beat 'em..join 'em....right? lol http://www.atlasquest.com/gallery/viewphoto.html?gPhotoId=10745 I am happy to debut a new patch..the Blue Diamond Worthy Letterboxer" patch. There is no criteria or hoops to jump through to get th...

I've tried so hard not to be vain about the fact that I've finally got a Blue Diamond box, and now you're offering these pretty patches! Do I give in and order one for my backpack? Or do I resist pretend that "it really doesn't matter what others think...

I know what you mean. I want soooo many patches. But I've vowed to only buy patches after I have boxed in that area. Hence, no PNW patch for me.....YET! :) LW PhD "Nice Counts"

Well, what about patch collectors? I collect patches; from parks, from events, from letterboxing, from places... I would like to order one of your patches, but I don't know where to send the money and I almost feel guilty about. I really would like to...

Oh patch collectors can have 'em too! I am a patch collector myself. :) Here's the info: You can send a check, a money order, cash or use paypal. They are $3 each. Here's my address: Lock Wench/Cyndie Long 218 Clairmonte Avenue Syracuse, NY 13207 F...

If anyone is buying a big quantity (like 20 or more), I will handle the postage. LW PhD "Nice Counts"

LockWench, If you think they can get here by March 30th, I'll put in an order for a mess of patches for the April 1st Gathering. I despise PayPal, but for this I will endure the suffering!! Watch for an order to come through soon. Renee

I'll put them in the mail asap as soon as I hear from you. Don't forget your address! LW PhD "Nice Counts"

Oh, Oh....(hand raised up high in the air) I will buy one (or maybe more) from you at the gathering. We are coming and can't wait! See you soon, In Cahoots Gang

If we just order patches, is it just the one stamp for every two patches for the return postage? In Cahoots Gang

WOW! The patch looks great! Unfortunately I have sworn off and boycott blue diamond ratings. Otherwise I would be in line as well.

her patch has nothing to do with ratings. we ae all blue diamond worth and that is what the patch says. not that you have a blue diamond worthy box. please don't boycott such a wonderful idea by lock wench. the patch is beautiful. i can't wait for mine...

Yes, one stamp is plenty for every 2 patches you order. So 1 stamp for 1-2 patches, 2 stamps for 3-4 patches, etc. LW PhD "Nice Counts"

I would love one of these patches and will be contacting LW soon. But as for everyone being blue diamond worthy...I disagree. I have been to several boxes where it is obvious that the person put little effort into the logbook or the carving of the st...

I still believe everyone has the potential to be "worthy" of planting great boxes in great places. Whether or not they will be inspired to do so is a different thing. At least my patch will last longer than an actual BD.....before I opted out, those...

so that box isn't for you. im not a religious kinda guy either and probably would also be turned of by it, but if someone who did follow the words from above, then that box would be just fine for that someone. i have found boxes that i really didn't ca...

They simply wanted a plant. Not to mention the "letterbox" that Becky and I found that was simply full of religious pamphlets and a store bought stamp from Wal-mart I know which box that was... how annoying. Nevermind it didn't have anything to do wi...

Actually Becky and I are both devout Roman Catholics...so we ARE religious type people. This box was a drive by, so there was no hike to enjoy. We simply drove out to the spot to find a stamp and a bunch of pamphlets...disappointing. NOT Blue diamond m...

Let me add to that... In my opinion a box has to have at least two out of these three to be a blue diamond: An excellent handmade logbook A beautiful location A very detailed and nice stamp Creative/well written clues are also a bonus. If someone...

Hmmm... Coincidentally, I was raised Roman Catholic—went to the same parish school my mother and her brothers went to. I've got nothing against religion (except that I think it's been one of the roots of a lot of the conflicts in the world). I even car...

Exactly. That box is missing actually. It wasn't exactly well hidden in the first place. (Under the steps of a shed used by maintenance workers) We checked on it out of curiosity when we went to that park to check on one of our plants.
