No worries. I was just trying to get a handle on it. I figured $10 or less per patch, but not at 50 per order. That's a bit too much for our infant organization. It looks like embroidered patches are out then.
I still think we could just print them as needed on the fabric that is designed for computer printers. If we limit them to four per page, that would leave enough fabric for them to fit in an embroidery hoop for anyone who wanted to embroider it themselves. Otherwise, they can just cut it out.

Just wanted to give this a bump because I still think that it is a great idea. So maybe the embroidered patches aren't the best option, but I like the idea of making a printable badge instead then putting it on a beer cap or something and coating it to protect it. This way your club doesn't have to deal with the hassel. I also like the idea of using this method to make magnets for your keggerater, and badges for your sig is cool too, especially if we could get other forums to allow it too. I think that this idea could really take of if you open it up to the BN, and it could be a nice fund-raiser for your club.

We just need to find the time and a competent artist. I personally would like to iron a few things out before we open it up. For one thing, the merit badges should be damn difficult for most adults to achieve. You shouldn't just be able to buy your way to a hop-cone hat full of badges. (That's my personal favorite. Instead of sashes or whatever, we sew our badges onto the petals of a giant hop cone made into a hat. "We are the cone heads! consume mass quantities! Of beer!")

We could still make physical ones but these are cool

Nice idea, but I think we would run out of room for them on the forum. Once you get a dozen or so, a single line post would take a full page.

They could be smaller and put in the sig though. Just a thought. I have no skill in this area.

Yeah. Hmm. I'll leave this one to the leadership to decide. I really don't care much either way. I'd just like to get our basic framework in place so we can let this puppy out. I'm pretty sure it will go viral almost immediately.

These are the iron on fabric sheets aleguy was talking about. Looks like a pretty good way to go.

That's my $.02 anyway.

Looking forward to seeing what you folks come up with!

Cheers,
Dave

That works out to about $1 per badge if we print four per page. I wonder if we can get printable fabric that's not iron-on. I also think we can either find it cheaper or at least locally. Either way, we need badge designs and requirements. Anyone have any art skills out there?

I'm not bad, I'll try to sketch something up when I get a chance.

Got a list of the badges you'd be wanting?

Okay, the last time I tried this, the network booted me off. We need badges for Troop 1 WOMBAT. I'm thinking a wombat with a corny in its pouch. Brewstand build, automation adaptation, Frankenstein Design, Brewhouse invention and each of the major style catecories (not substyles) as well as "Strange Brew" for other things not covered by the BJCP.
I know that's a lot of badges, but I think we can leave the beer badges on hold for a bit since I think you should have to place in at least a state competition in each of the sub styles to earn the style badge.
Strange brew will of course have separate requirements.

Hey! No feedback? The merit badges were just me spit-balling ideas, Does anyone like them? Hate them? Have other ideas for badges? What? I'm starting to feel as if I'm running a one-man show here.
C'mon guys, have a few and come up with some ideas or at least let me know what you think.
