I am pleased to announce that I am accepting pre-orders for the fourth patch in my ten-part series: "Celebrating 50 Years of America in Space."

This is an 8" patch that honors the men and women who put America into the lead in the Space Race - Project Gemini.

The patch is $12.00 but discounts are available for "bulk orders." As before, please download the order form and send in the completed form along with your payment.

As it is an 8" patch and with my experience with Project Mercury, there will probably only be 250 made and Jacques will not be accepting orders for our friends outside of North America. For you folks, contact The Space Store and you will be able to order your patch there.

I know this has taken longer than I originally planned and appreciate everyone's support and patience.

Another great design, Tim, and I love the inclusion of the GT-3 Molly Brown and GT-4 McDivitt-approved patches. BTW, are you planning any licensed wall clocks with this design?

Tim, is it OK if I still order the patch direct from you and pay the $4-$5 again for shipping to the UK? It just works out cheaper than paying $12.95 international shipping with The Space Store!

Thanks.

Sure Allan no problem.

Just to let everyone know the patches have been ordered from the embroidery company. I'll start preparing labels & packages this week so they are ready when the patches arrive.

The patches will be a bit delayed. The sample arrived today and it is missing some detail on GT-9. I've sent an email to the embroidery company and will make sure it is corrected before they ship.

I'll write again when they arrive.

The patches are in and they look great! Tonight I will be preparing orders for mailing. To be mailed NLT Saturday morning.

Thanks to everyone for their support. Next up and the last commemorative of 2008 - MOL.

Hey Tim,

How about a preview of the MOL patch?

Thanks!

I received my patches today and they are simply great. The detail is fantastic. A great addition to anybody's collection. If you haven't order one you should definitely add one to your collection. Nice work Tim.

Received my patch today in the mail. After the terrific job with the Mercury I was anxious to open this one. What a terrific job. Great patch.

Thanks,

Ted

Tim,

I am going to add to what everyone else is saying. I continue to be impressed by your work. I have always thought the Gemini missions have been ignored by the general public. So I am in favor of anything that brings the missions to the public's eye. I buy a couple of extra patches for friends that are teachers. After listening to me they "get" the symbolism of space patches. They use it as a focal point for their classroom to discuss space exploration.

I will try to be patient for the others.

It is always great doing business with you.

Thanks,
Bob
