I also forgot - there is a good manufacturer of promotional products for churches and so on - they do mugs and pens and baby aardvarks and badges and bookmarkers and so on with your text on and they also do embroidered badges.
By the way, I may produce some t-shirts for my shop in a while ... anyone have any image/text ideas?
All I have at the moment is the old
"I walked 700 kms doing this pilgrimage and all they gave me was this lousy t-shirt" ...
I have had excellent dealings for several years with a company who do embroidered badges, hats , clothing, towels, (but I can't see baby aardvarks in their catalogue - damn) - so if it would be useful to have a quote for comparison, they are Kingfisher Leisurewear (http://www.kingflw.com) or phone for a quote (from th UK) on 0800137948 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Good to see things are progressing with the woven badge. I got the link to cafepress from one of the posts on this site. The badge is not the best as I intend putting it on my backpack (also grey) but won't do so until it goes through customs/hold of the plane as I can see it being ripped off quite easily. Or I could put it on my hat.
I created the cafepress store and would be happy to change the image. I thought I used the one that won the poll -- it looks dark blue to me. If someone can send me a different image, I'll change it on the cafepress site.
I haven't seen the actual pins. I just uploaded the image so that the pins would be available -- at least until someone comes up with something better.
