The ones in the movie are actually screened on linen and sewn onto felt backing.
That's why they look a little weird. But that's what we had access to at the time.
I am very much looking forward to doing more patch runs to actually sell or hand out to backers :D


Hey! It's just as easy to get right back OFF that list.
All ya gotta do is make some of your patches, (screen-used or reproductions)
available to the patch crazy crowd at ffprops.net; and all is forgiven.

Seriously, dude; that is some kinda bad-ass' design frippery, woo-hoo!

OooooOOOOOooOOoOOH!

~*DROOL!*~

Please let us know when those patches come available, Francis! I'd love to have them for a subsequent CSTS raffle!

(That's assuming that I can bear to part with them. Cuz that's assuming a helluva lot!)

I haven't heard any more from scifigeeks.com about the other two patches they were going to do. (the alliance patch, and the serenity logo patch, I submitted the artwork for.) I think the sales for the TG patches were probably underwhelming. I made a big mistake, by asking them to make them so small, consideri8ng how much they charge for their patches, a larger patch would have been a better value. (and just cooler in general) Still, it was nice of them to do what they have done so far. and I still hope they will keep the other designs in mind.

That's cool. A very clean, straight forward design for the fan base. It's amazing how few commercial patches we had at the start,

I submitted a clean version, and a much more "weathered" version. I'm kind of glade they went with the clean version, because it's really easy for people to dirty it up/weather it to their own taste, and make it their own. You can always weather a clean item, but it's not so easy to clean up a weathered one.

I agree, about how few we started with, and how it's grown, and continues to grow. I've personally slowed down on my patch collecting, but there are still quite a few I want that are out there, and quite a few I would like to see made, that have not been yet. I usually stick to the "replica" patches, and a few EU patches, but some of these theme, logo, inspired by, and "cartoony", patches are a lot of fun too. Like the Kaylee parasol patch, and the Jayne hat patch, or some of the patches for the fan groups. etc. I may not collect like I used to, but I love seeing the fandom grown, and change.

I love them all and OMG! I don't have all of them! How did I miss the Vargo patch?!

I don't have #5 or #15, either.

Nevertheless: GREAT COLLECTION! And beautifully presented here. Thank you, YJ!
