Thanks! I'm looking forward to getting them. I called up the guy who's doing the patches and left a message. I was hoping to have them done and delivered this week, but I guess he's been a little backlogged or something.

The initial order of 50 is going to be gone fast!

Sorry about the hold-up guys. There's been some problems at the patch company, and we're trying to decide how to proceed. I haven't gotten any patches yet. The company I'm ordering from had some important family issues, and they're back in now.

I'll keep ya posted!

We're getting there. The patch guy is going to have the edges of the gear made to be sharper. :)

Okay, I spoke with the company today and he's going to see about getting me a proof patch so that I can see how the reflective material works out. I was quoted 10 days for the next order though, as he orders them together with other orders to save money.

After this batch, I think I'll have to find a different company to work with though. The guy that's running the patches & pins shop is going to be putting business on hold for a while to take care of family obligations. Hopefully the next round of patches will be as good as the first.

A lot of people have been asking about stickers. I've inquired at a company that will be sending me a reflective sticker of the Scooter Invasion logo. I need to touch base with them again though, because I haven't heard from them since, and it's been 3 weeks!

Hey, no problem my friend! I have the addresses for the 25 active members in my PM box. :D

I can't wait to get the patches. I think they're going to be really sharp!

I also called the sticker company again today, hoping to get a sample sticker sent to me.

I like the sticker idea too :) ... Patches don't stick very well to scoot's & they're a bitch to stitch thru metal.. :?

Got a couple things going with the stickers, and will post details when I have concrete information for ya.

I should have a patch proof in my hands by the end of the week, or very early next week! I'm excited!

I got the patch proof last week and I've just been so busy I haven't posted it up yet. I'll get to that soon. I haven't even had much time to check the forums lately. :) I think you guys will really like the patch though!

The background is quite bright at the right angle in a bit of light!

How it looks normally.

A couple of small changes will be made. An extra spoke on the rear wheel, and fixing the symmetry of the gear. :)

This patch is a proof that I get before the "big order". I'm going to use the proof on my shop jacket. I love it! The material is perfect, and it really does work nicely at night to increase visibility.

Thanks again DubG for the great ideas!

I forgot to mention. These are 4" patches, not 2" like I was originally thinking of!
