No, I've not forgotten.

Here's where we stand: We have designs. We have quantities and prices. We're ready to go. I know some numbers shifted here and there, I'll probably do a final count over Spring Break. Between now and then I'll pull the numbers from the old forum so that we're all on the same page.

I want to clean up the design a bit. Things aren't quite symmetrical and some elements are a bit messy for my standards. This requires me to recreate the patch in a CAD program (something akin to AutoCAD). From there I can fill in all the details in Adobe Illustrator.

TL;DR look for big news after Spring Break. I have no plans for travel and will likely remain in Blacksburg. Posting this here will give me incentive to do it during that time period.

Yes, I'm looking forward to getting VTAC patches. We'll have extra on hand as well. It is possible the club may be able to use them for revenue to buy BBs for the club or something as well.

The good news to everything is that:

A: Buying 50 is cheaper than buying 38, or whatever the numbers were.
B: More patches...jubilee!

Really looking forward to this, kyle. The excess of patches would probably sell to those members of the club that join later as well as members of VAF that have played with us. I know Tim said he would love to get his hands on a patch or two from VTAC.

Wellllll...I kinda went home and didn't get a chance to really contact the company this week BUT I've been slaving away this Friday night on the cleaned up version of the larger patch. It's mostly the same, but you may find that it comes off as a bit sharper, the horizon on the sides disappear, the text is more uniform, and I managed to add "club" at the top. Also, everything is ZOMG PERFECTLY SYMMETRICAL. Just compare this patch with the forum's banner at the top.

Final version of small patch is to come, I don't expect much, if anything, to be different.

If you see anything overwhelmingly offensive please let me know so I can fix it over the weekend, otherwise I'll begin communications Monday.

VTAC Patches Bigpatchfinal

For reference here is the small patch. Unless anyone says anything differently the only thing you'll notice different is that the VTAC Logo will be much cleaner and not pixelated since I actually recreated it in a CAD program.

I'm currently in email conversations with the company, making sure everything designed is up to spec. Seems that I have to make 1 change (border has to be 1/8") and we'll be all set.

It's official: Patch orders have been placed!

I guess the process now goes that they should send us production samples then we go from there.

Looks like pricing is going to be simple: $5 a patch. Those on my list get first dibs, but if you missed out there will be plenty extra.

Final designs (could still change depending upon what the embroiderer says...)

Here is the list from the old forum. I know it's not 100% but it's close enough.

And I'll make a note once I print it out, but maffyx requested 1 of each.

I do have paypal, though no one has ever payed me over it. There are exceptions regarding those out of town, but otherwise if I'm going to give you your patches in hand I'd much rather have cash. I know paypal takes money away for purchases...or something? I don't know.

I'm not super hurting for cash, payment can really wait until the patches are in hand. But if Paypal is what must absolutely be done then so be it.

Also...if anyone can shed light on this whole paypal payment thing I'd be cool with that. I know I've given money to Sean, that's really all.

^^^ if you use the "gift" option in paypal, then it doesnt take any money out. But for such a small amount and how close we are, cash would almost work better. I will pay you in case, in any case.

Pre-Production Samples:
VTAC Patches Patche10

2 notes:

1. There is no longer a gradient in the foreground of the large patch. This decision was made under the recommendation of the embroiderers. I would be inclined to respect their opinion regarding ensuring the utmost in quality.

2. The small patch is supposed to have a dark green border, not black. I have already notified the embroiderers and they have made note to change it.

Please look over them and let me know if you see anything else. I think they look pretty damn spiffy. Kinda wish we could have had that gradient, but it's key to remember that we're dealing with threads here, not pixels.

I know this is really relevant but I just noticed....I thought you had planned to put two little cross thingys at the top two corners of the shield as well as the bottom. Did it just not look good? Did we have this discussion and I am just forgetting it? Though It does look excellent without them im just curious about it is all.

It's been a long time since they've been in a draft...even the original files I found seemed to lack them. Maybe we just discussed it? I don't really remember them too well...

Yea maybe it was just a discussion. Oh well to late looks good anyway.

on a side note and not to threadcrap but did we also discuss making a spring run of t-shirts? Maybe that should be discussed in pm's...or another thread.

I really have way too much on my plate right now to even think about organizing a shirt run. Fall maybe, not now.

I kinda like how it went last year (Even though I didn't get one), doing the T-Shirt run for Fulda in the fall.

Order Confirmed. Allow 7-10 Business Days for Shipment. I'd say expect them first week of April.

Now...regarding payment:

I think the easiest way for me to do this is for you to come visit me. For the next few weeks I'll basically be living in Cowgill Hall. I'm usually there from 2-5PM, then from after I eat dinner until I can't hold my eyes open anymore (or I get bored). Usually, that means until about midnight.

Naturally I'll bring the patches to the games, but for those of you who we don't see quite often...yeah...you come find me.

Cowgill Hall is directly behind Burrus. It's 4 floors and is one of the few buildings on campus that doesn't have Hokie Stone (because we're cool like that). I reside on the 1st Floor on the half closer to Hancock. I sit next to the big windows. It's a big open space, it won't be hard to find me.
