The Scooter Invasion Patch! (Check it out)

Postby Areomyst » Wed Nov 26, 2008 10:39 am

Hi guys,

I've just sent in for a quote on patches. This is the basic design that I sent in for the company to work with:

Image

Ignore the gold around the edges. That's a result of me not doing the graphic quite right, but they'll get the picture I think. The gear in the back will be a reflective material and the scooter will be embroidered.

I was thinking that contouring the words "In Unity There is Strength" along the top and "scooterinvasion.net" along the bottom. Is the 'unity' thing a bit too cheesy?

I want to hear your opinions, good bad or indifferent. :)

This one's a little better. :)

I was thinking of a 6" patch, but a 2" is going to be a good bit cheaper to start off with.

I like the Logo....I guess ScooterInvasion words is enough...

Once you get the patches, let me know how I can get some of them.

Thanks!

how about "the invasion has begun"?

But I definitely give a thumbs up to "In unity there is strength" I think it's more thought provoking than cheesy...but that's just my opinion.

Definitely! The more I think about it the more I'm leaning towards 2" patches. I'll put one on each arm of my riding jacket, and they probably wouldn't look bad to put on the breast of a shirt or jacket either. A larger one would be nice on the back though, but that'll have to wait.

I think you're right, I should just put scooterinvasion.net on them. I think I should do it along the bottom of the graphic, what do you think?

:D

Thought provoking is good! I guess we'll battle around a bit and see what everyone likes. I don't wanna get patches that people don't wear, so it's important to me that the majority likes them.

Invasion has begun sounds neat too. "Enter the Invasion" :P Throw your ideas at me.

Also, iron on, or sewn on?

Jennifer likes "The Invasion Has Begun" the best.

This just confirms that you have a smart wife Josh... :lol:

hey, here's another one..."scooter invasion" on top and "in Josh we trust" on the bottom...lol :lol:

or even "in scoots we trust"...lol..how's that for cheesy...lol :P

I think "the invasion has begun" sounds TOUGH! and It's my fav so far...lol :twisted:

maybe even "let the invasion begin", or "scooterinvasion.net" and "invade and conquer"...hmm, now I may have a new fav...lol. :twisted:

I'll defnitely rock some patches...probably need a dozen so I have 'em for all my jackets...lol.

You should look into decals as well. You could give them to customers to put on their scoots...I'll slap one on my belly pan...and with a reflective gear on the decal, they are good for safety too! 8)

I outlined the scooter with some white so that it would still stand out if it were put on a black jacket. :)

Decals are not a bad idea either, but I won't be just passing them out to customers, or people we don't know. :P

Active scooter club members and forum members get patches. I don't plan on doing any mixing of Scooter Invasion and The Scooter Garage whatsoever. I won't be putting up any advertising banners on this site or anything like that. The closest things so far is the thread about loosing my job last month, but I don't feel like that's out of line.

So if we go with "The Invasion has Begun" how do we punctuate it?

The Invasion has Begun!

The Invasion has Begun...

The Invasion has Begun.

:?

I think that it'll actually have to be a 3" minimum size. Otherwise it's just too small. I thought 2" was fine, but I looked at my jacket and measured and it's not big enough. :)

i vote for sew on instead of iron on for sure.

decals would be sweet too. i would def get a decal, but i dont really have anything id put a patch on. my leather jacket is gonna stay decal-less.

Hey, you could maybe even put the state of NC behind the gear and scoot, but centered...like the UNC basketball floor..yeah, yeah, GO HEELS!!!

That way, some day when the invasion spreads, they'll know where it all started...Central NC!

Looks good! I'd definitly get one if you made a decal. I'd put it on the race scoot. :D
