Would Mike consider making TechPB or Punkworks patches for people? I think it would be a great way to help generate income, promote the site, and for people to show their support. They can either sew it on or have velcro sewn onto it. I was thinking you can have a regular version and a camo version. That way both speedballers and woodsballers can wear them.

The Operater Group sites (A5OG, X7OG, 980G) and the Operator Strike Force (OSF) have corresponding patches that have had good success with them. Here's an example of what they did but obviously TechPB and Punkworks would be a lot simpler.

We have sooo many requests for TechPB to produce various items, sadly it costs money to produce them for maybe 10 people who will buy them.
We have jerseys and shirts....

Aw. The patches would really increase revenue from the woodsball sector of the market though.

Kitty, I didn't mean it like that. But ya, Muppets jerseys and Punkworks ones are cool. I made a few TechPB shirts on my own at home, it all works.

Yeah, I think that would work. As long as the money (minus the cash it took to make them) went to TechPB.

Possibly make people pay before they are made? That way you can see how many people actually want them.

I think i would like it better if the patch said "woodsball" on the ribbon instead of milsim. Woodsball encompass nearly everyone who playes paintball (except the strictly speed ball people which wouldn't want a military looking patch anyway) but milsim narrows that down considerably. Many of us love woodsball but are not die hard milsim players.

Prepaying and in large batches are definitely the way to go. Not sure how that's going to work out with multiple designs though. Maybe offer multiple designs and once a certain limit is met, then the order will be placed for that particular patch.

Ya it looks like if were gonna get em done that's how it's gonna have to go. Shit's not cheap. They would either be 75-100% embroidery which means they are in the higher price range, and if you want a military looking patch in size it's gonna be in the 7.5 inch area which means to get the price below $6 I'd need to bulk order 2000 of em. So they end up being about $8000 up front cost anyway. At which point i may just buy a machine and do it myself lol.

If we know someone with access to discounts or an embroidery machine hook me up with them and I'll see if we can get a deal.

And i know it says Milsim right now, but that's because i wanted it to say "Woodsball Division" in the big gaping space in the bottom. I wanted it to say woodsball because then the emblem patches for speedball and/or xball would say "speedball" or "xball"

Im still working on it, and the nameplates are coming along too. i can do them in basic woods camo, desert camo, urban, snow, and (possibly) a digi camo.

Name plate patches are cheap as shit beause they would all say TECH PB or PUNKWORKS and they would be maybe 1.5 inches and 50% embroidery so they're like under $6 if i only buy 20. If i but the bulk 2000 kit each is $.32 lol.

I'll ask the Operator Group sites where they had their patches made up. They sold their patches in the $6-8 range and they are top quality. If you look in my sig, you can see the OSF patch, which isn't exactly a simple design.

The Operator Group sites get their patches from a site called Stadri Emblems. It looks like for the patches to be decently priced, we'll need a minimum order of 50+. I hear they're really respectable.

Even though it is hard, someone should try and make an X-7 shadow for #1, I would, but I'm artistically challenged, lol. #2 looks great, and I'd be interested in a Tech PB Headwrap.

Don't forget that whatever designs you guys go with that about 50 people need to like it enough to buy it as well. Otherwise they'll be too expensive.

that's exactly why I'm not going to get any of them made until either we get orders or i find a way to make some cash and can sell them at PB events, or mail them to mike and cockerpunk and they can sell them (Tech PB/Punkworks respectively)

I agree. I have seen so many requests for Tech Pb stuff. Lets just chill out and let mike do his thing. He needs money yes, does he do all this work for it? no. I believe the jersey's/t-shirts are fine, also Stickers mike serve as close to the same purpose, maybe not on your clothing though.

I would buy a TechPB patch(s) to put on my scenario gear. Oh, and by the way, I think Mike should make his own business cards that say "Mike Phillips: your one and only King Kong sexual tyrannosaurus paintball guru." Or someone needs to make King Kong Sexual Tyrannosaurus stickers for us TechPB overbore'ers to put on our hoppers.

Alright boys and girls. After along period of being busy as all hell, and not checking the forums. . . I'm back :)

My birthday was just last week, Nov. 18, and with birthdays and black friday comes happyness and gifts. I am not the proud owner of a screenprinting/silkscreening machine.

I will get back to work on the patches as soon as i can. If anyone has ideas or thoughts of new designs or patches, or if they want me to custom print something please feel free to post, or send me a PM.

haha thanks bunny. Again still crazy busy. I mean shit. . . it's semester break and i haven't had a chance to rest. Between paying work for my Design Studio, and my own personal commissions the patches are sadly getting neglected at the moment, but i am still working on them.

Oh maddog, I would love to be able to make patches with people's user name on them, but that would be crazy expensive and each would be an individual order.

The hardest part of the whole project is the PunkWorks patches because they have such an intricate background and I'd want to make it look perfect. If i cant get it I'll post what i do have.

Again if anyone has ideas for patches, wants to donate, or knows how to get a special deal on patches post here or send me a PM. Thanks for the continues support during this long and drawn out process. Trust me, It's just like this in the real world. Getting designs down is probably the easiest part. Perfecting them, and then getting them into production is what takes the longest. If anyone wants to help speed up the process send me a PM and we can try to work out a partnership or something where people can help. Even after they are all designed, we need to know which ones to send to get made. The last thing i want to do is send 5-6 designs for 50-100 patches each and then not have any of them sell, then the people who payed for them are out ALOT of money.

shits not cheap son.

He probably wouldn't be able to make the patches themselves but he might be up for attaching them to velcro, clothing, or camo panels.
