    Ok...I am starting a thread to see if there is a interest in getting a Mos Alba Patch produced. Below is a quote from Mike Phelps AKA "BATFROG". He manufactures most of the 501st patches that are out there.

    [blockquote]Jess,

    I was able to get you a quote but I do have some bad
    news. Due to the small lettering on the top and bottom
    of the patch I'm not able to get it made any smaller
    then 3.25" x 5". I have quoted it at this size
    although its big. I will work with it some and make a
    few changes to see if I might be able to make it
    smaller in size. Anyway the quote is below.

    Emblems:3 1/4"x5" rectangle on tan twill fabric
    background with darkblue outer border

    MOS ALBA

    100 @ $1.86 ea.
    200 @ $1.45 ea.

    Emblems:3 1/4"x5" rectangle 100% embroidered
    background with darkblue outer border

    MOS ALBA

    100 @ $2.36 ea.
    200 @ $1.89 ea.


    100% embroidered means the entire emblems is stitched.

    I look forward to hearing back from you and hope to
    help out one way or another if I can. Take care and
    talk to you soon.

    Cheers,

    Mike

    Should we proceed with this? I think they would look awesome!

    I'm down for this! It would be nice to add our own to my small but growing patch collections. As Bob already said pics would be nice.

    I cannot post the image I had, as my PC is DEAD! Lor can you help us out! Varza also has recommend we check out our local guy here who does the Mos Alba shirts plus other projects that Lor does. The quality of his stuff is awesome too!

    I think a Mos Alba Patch would be great, stickers would be cool too. How do I get my hands on one of those shirts?

    Peter, contact Lor on the shirts. He may have some left....if not it may be time to do another run. I would love to see a smoke gray or another run of the tan ones again!

    Yes, definitely time for shirts. I think one of the questions was if we wanted to go with the old style (which would be cheaper because the plate was already done for it) or with the new style (which has a few modifications to it - and will be slightly more since a new plate will have to be made).

    I say let's go for the new one.

    Oh, black_8ight, I sent ya a PM about stickers...

    I think Lor used the newer version for the breast cancer shirts-but that is a different form as well because of the ribbon. Must bug lor to post on thread....

    I think we spoke about putting our logo on the back as well didn't me?

    I don't remember that. Maybe we did. Or something on the sleeve. Like the URL or something for the website. Oh wait, that might've been a discussion on the San Diego boards...

    in polls from last year we voted for a long sleeve black shirt. I think we discussed the logo on the back at a meeting but we didn't do the shirts cause of the fiasco of last year and not enough interest to cover costs.

    I would like to have "You Don't Need to See Our Identification" on the back though. It may be a bit more but It would make it a different shirt.

    I am interested in a T-shirt. I'm not sure what you do with a patch although the design sounds nice.

    FBF-with the patch you can sew it onto a strap of black fabric and put it on your arm for recognizing mos alba... this way you can have a cannon costume as well

    or you can collect like Gecko does-he has a sweet collection.

    Gecko has a trooper groupies patch!!!!!!!! Where do I get a trooper groupies patch??? *sniffs around for one* and I don't remember any of the talk about new shirts, it must have been one of the meetings I wasn't able to make.

    edit: And I agree with Obey, C3 is for non-muggle people who have the means of getting there.

    Just for fun I thought I would post a picture of patches that have been made and ones that are in production.
