Most mission/space patches seem to be quite large (since there is space for that in spacesuits). Do you know any source for smaller scale patches?

I hope to find patches that could be used also in children gear.

Standard size mission patches are 4 inches tall (or diameter).

AB Emblem, which produces the patches for NASA, also sells 3-inch versions, at least for the Apollo and space shuttle emblems. The company's souvenir Gemini patches are also 3 inches.

Thanks. It seems that they have 3" version of older patches, but not from newer ones.

All times are CT (US)
