I used Moritz on several AQ recommendations for the 5 state patches I recently did. Highly recommend.

Yes, use Moritz! Ask for Eva Garippa. She is familiar with our letterboxing hobby and helped make all our patches(Grateful Letterboxers, LBMA, L&B XV). She's super helpful - their patches are awesome!!!

Thanks for all the recommendations! They gave me a quote already, and their prices are very competitive. We won't order until September when we have a better count on the number we need.
Custom patches?

Hi all
We were wondering where a good place to get custom patches made would be. My daughter is wanting to make some fun patches to sell. Thinking it would need to at least 100 or so.

Looking for recommendations.

Thanks!

it seems they have a monolopy on the letterboxing patch business!

Their patches are high quality and they have great prices. They made the Texas letterboxing patch (not sure if you have seen that). They will also be making the patch for the Live and Breathe event.

path tags - tag back for letterboxing
Board: T-shirts! Patches! Paraphernalia!

Thread
I was looking at the path tag site yesterday and suggested they add a tag back design for letterboxing. Someone asked if I had anything specific in mind... so any suggestions on what the design should be?

I think a hiking boot print would be a good graphic. Other ideas or thoughts on the text?

You can see the existing designs here (scroll down):

I agree! But not the hiking boot. A stamp and logbook, which is specific to letterboxing. I would get that on the back of my pathtags and would love to see it on the back of someone else's tags.

I can't seem to be able to email them, I got the mailer-daemond. I also sent a quote request, but got nothing.

That was me *wave*. :)

My initial thought was to include "which way is north" or something.

I'm sorry to hear that. They responded to me about a day after I submitted a quote request on their website.

It seems to be a family business. Maybe something came up for them?

Hi Peachfaced! Thanks for responding on the pathtag forum. I like the idea of a logbook with a stamp, but I haven't found any graphics that we could use as is...it needs some design work.

any idea what the process is for getting a new tag back implemented? If it's based on volume we may have an issue. Even regional geocaching groups probably outnumber us on pathtag designs.

Good question. For clubs tag backs, they prefer to have 15+ members. So perhaps if we have at least 15 folks interested in producing a tag and intend to use that tag back, it'll be ok? OR, perhaps if that's not possible, it could be a "give back" (paid) tag back.

As for submitting, you need to make sure to include your enamel code for each of the plating types; https://i.imgur.com/ni6cPr3.jpg

2015 post from Mike: "If you are running a club with 15+ participants, we are making custom tag backs now for clubs that meet that requirement. The club leader should contact support with a design to start the process. We'll do the tag back at no cost to the leader or the club members and then the leader will be set as the tagback owner and will be allowed to grant permission to club members to use the back."

I tried again, typing the email in instead of clicking the email link, so far no mailer-daemon.

Will see on Monday if that worked.

These folks also do patches. I've spoken to Jessica about another project and she was very nice. She can get you a quote and help you with sorting out the details.

How much does it generally cost to have a custom back on a pathtag? I’m thinking about ordering 250 mile treasure hiker tags for CT—if cost was minimal, I’d consider adding it. Maybe other states doing pathtags would be interested as well?

Lock Wench - 5,000 finds patch
Board: T-shirts! Patches! Paraphernalia!

Thread
Does anyone know if Lock Wench is still selling patches? I sent her a message a month or more ago and she never responded. I had ordered a 5,000 finds patch a few years ago and the check was never cashed. Last year she said she would send me a free one, just for being patient. It never came. Then I told her I want to pay for one instead. I re-sent that message to her today, but then saw she has not logged in for over 2 months. Does anyone know anything about her situation? Or the patches?

I ran into her at a gathering a few months ago and she had just gotten to a little bit of walking with assistance again after a serious injury. Other than I don't know anything.

I know someone had ask me to design a Pennsylvania Letterboxing patch. Just wondering if anyone has already done it, or has some? Please let me know.

If not, I'll work on it when I do the New Jersey patch. Email any design ideas.
