Yes, as does the crew patch worn on the suits. Does anyone know what this material is? It's clearly not embroidered material, but what looks to be some sort of synthetic. (And for the record, I like it.)

The Demo-2 crew has been aboard ISS a couple of days, without any evidence of the SpaceX patch being worn. Should we conclude the SpaceX Demo-2 patch is be considered as a commemorative only, with the NASA version the "official" one for this mission?

I don't know if it should count, but on the morning of their first launch attempt, Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley added both insignia to their Tesla Model X transport (photo: NASA/Bill Ingalls).

I placed an order with AB Emblem for this DM-2 patch on Monday 1st June at 12:11pm EST, and received today Friday 5th June patches with the correct date code of 06/2020 (June 2020).

These patches must of been manufactured during the morning of Monday 1st June?

Why the "SpaceX crew patch" has black oceans while they are blue in the stickers?

And do you know where can be purchased all the items, patch, lapel pin and sticker of both emblems? Thank you for any information.

I haven't seen the SpaceX patch available anywhere and based on their lack of recent patch releases to the public/vendors, I would not hold your breath for it.

A lot of replicas are popping up (for both patches). I would think that LaunchPins on eBay would be putting out the pins, they seem to be doing a lot of the poignant SpaceX missions but I am not sure how official they are.

LaunchPins produced both the NASA and SpaceX designs as lapel pins, but as Liem says, they are not official (or authorized).

It appears that Winco may have produced the NASA design as a lapel pin (based on photos like this one), but they have yet to reach the retailers.

Likewise, there are official decals of the NASA design produced (presumably) for Spaceflight Awareness, but if they are for sale in the NASA exchange shops, they have yet to reach online.

The SpaceX decal may have been a special for the crew and company.

Some of the journalists who attended the launch received a SpaceX patch from the company. The hope now is that SpaceX is just waiting for Endeavour to return to Earth before releasing it for sale, as they have done in the past (barring CRS-20).
