$10 or less would be a much easier sell to She-Who-Must-Be-Obeyed.

Fixing to head down to Mexico for a week or so and won't have internet. Figure I'd get my on-line fix in before heading out. Messing around a bit more with patch designs...

Anyone have jpegs of the older patch graphics as opposed to actual pics of the embroidered final patch?

I was talking to my wife about embroidery and showed her a few different designs while complaining of short-run prices and she says "y'all do realize you can get a whole image digitized for about $25 and do it on a standard programmable machine".

She has an embroidery machine and could do a dozen patches for the cost of digitizing plus thread. For what y'all have here, black thread on a OD-green canvas it'd be about $15 in thread.

Just another thought to throw out if we're only looking at a very small run.

It does the embroidered edging. She makes "name plates" for baby blankets and such with it. I'll get her to do a 3.5" circle on some 17 oz canvas and get some pics and compare it to some commercial patches.

Here's a place. The best deal I could find on line for a short run. For 25, $5.77 ea plus shipping. That would work well with the 2/$20 end-user pricing.

http://www.custompatches.net/

I'll be getting a design done and have my wife make them in a couple weeks. I'll see how they come out. That would still be an option if there's still only a handful that want them.

with THAT specific group,.. we would need to presell 20. and the price would be 8 dollars a piece, 16 for 2,.. and my estimate doesnt include shipping cost for ME, which would be included in your purchase of 8 dollars,..

*SIGH*

Those 25 for 15$ seem mighty good atm,.. any pics for that yet? THOSE i would be happy doing at 5 bucks a piece,.. do limited runs,.. sell what we make, and see about making more.

I was looking at "less than 100% embroidered", 3.5", 25 patches. They have those listed as $5.77 ea. Getting 25 presold looks like it would be pretty tough.

For digitizing, you need a clean 2-D image done in something like photoshop. They use software to take the image and turn it into a digital file to be used with the software on the sewing machine. Photos of old patches don't always work to well due to all the subtle changes in light. For the $20-25 price, they don't do any editing other than changing fonts or contrast.

Do you have the original pics y'all used to have the old patches done, or at least the central graphic?

She's got her machine set up doing some medieval heraldry stuff right now so she won't get a chance to do any examples until after next weekend.

Brock, if by chance we DO get the originals the way Krag suggests, I'll still do $12 for mine. You gotta make some money back on this somehow. I know it won't be much but hey it's what I can do. (That is, if it doesn't COST $12 for them to be made, if it does, lemme know what a fair price would be to you and I'll buy one for sure.)

im sure everyones aware that we set out to make a LITTLE money off this endeavor. i just dont wanna fleece anyone. 

40 dollars (setup and thread) is still around 3.5 per patch, but we dont have to buy 100 of them. the only thing im worried about,.. is 1. will i get the digital copy as well,..and 2. if we need to make more after the original 12 will i be able to request some?

The digital files will be in PES for mat...I think. Whatever a Brother machine uses. I figure I'd get her to make as many as the thread will make. I'll even donate the spool of thread. I don't know how many that would make, though. I'm estimating 2500-3000 stitches for the operator design, and you get about 35,000 stitches per spool.So about a dozen patches, maybe a hair more. If y'all cover the cost of the file and just email me a copy, you'll have a copy of the file.

I was putting it out there to be done this way if we can't get enough interest for a commercial order. If there's enough interest that we're needing a dozen made every month...then people can get on a list and a big order can be put into one of the commercial places. If there's only a total of 10-12 from those of us wanting them, then this is economical and doesn't wear out my wife or her machine.

As far as future ones...I'll go out on a limb and say that depends how much of a pain and how long it takes to make the first set. She married me, so she's obviously a very tolerant and patient women...but she has her limits.
