INTEREST: The Super Secret Surprise 57th Overlander patch

Postby Yellowjacket » Sat Jun 10, 2017 1:46 am

This one is a surprise, and when I say 'surprise', I meant it's just as much a surprise to me as anyone. Let me explain.

Yesterday, I mentioned to Geoff Mandel in passing that I thought his 57th Overlander emblem from the 'Zoe' Loot Crate was amazing and that he should tell QMx to make it into a patch. Then he did something I did not expect. He actually asked them to make it into a patch based on this suggestion. QMx surprised me further by saying, they had no plans to do it, but if I wanted to do it as a short patch run for 'charity' they wouldn't argue the point at all.

Then Geoff sent me the original art files and here we are.

I know, right...?

So we're doing a short run of patches for charity out of nowhere. After costs for manufacturing and shipping, all proceeds will go to charity. In fact, I plan to make the patches available to Browncoat charity groups at cost all over the place, because it's going to be a damn fine patch and should be shared about.

It will be hot cut with iron-on backing at 4.5" x 2.75". The usual pricing would apply to anyone that would like to support the ruin and get these into the hands of charities all over the place.

I haven't even had time to send in for proofs or anything yet. It all happened too fast.

Geoff has told me that the Chinese basically says something like "rebel army that comes over land."

Also...Geoff is motivated to get some for his own collection. He wants patches.

Since this is not a normal release, I'm in for 3.

So, Geoff is now a member of the Patch Companion Guild. Shiny!

Geoff has been a member since he did the 12th patch for QMx. Plus he gave me permission to use the Firefly Ship Works stuff for the mechanic run. He's with us for life.

Thank you, all. We have interest from many groups already, so this one should go out soon. I made a final decision on the size. I decided to keep it at the original size that Geoff sent, so it will be 4.5" x 2.75". 5 inches across would create too much wrap and make it bulky on hats or sleeves.
