collectSPACE logo patches

Presenting the official collectSPACE logo embroidered patches, now available in 3- and 4-inch versions!

Designed by artist Dave Ginsberg with input from the collectSPACE community and produced in embroidered form by AB Emblem (made in the USA), the collectSPACE patch is the outcome of our member-design contest held earlier this year.

(For the official description of the logo, see: About the collectSPACE insignia.)

Pricing for the patches is as follows:

  • 3-inch patch: $3 each
  • 4-inch patch: $5 each
Please add $2 shipping domestic or $5 for international.

PayPal (using account: buyspace@collectspace.com) is preferred. If you would rather pay by other means, please contact me via e-mail.

Patches will also be available for sale at the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation's Astronaut Autograph and Memorabilia Show at NASA's Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex this November.

They look great! I personally don't do patches — any chance of getting Winco to do a coin? One side the collectSPACE logo, the other side maybe Voyager leaving the solar system, something showing how far we've gone?

We're not currently planning a medallion, but we are working with Winco on a lapel pin.

Hmm... Maybe they can include in a medallion some 'flown' metal shavings - from the spiral notebooks or USB drives I'm sure Robert has filled up in his many travels near and far.

Robert, I plan to buy several patches but will be at the ASF show so will wait until then. I look forward to the lapel pins as well and - dare I wish? - maybe an adhesive decal down the road.

Finally got a chance to order 3 4" and 2 3" patches yesterday. After all the comments I made during the design, I wanted to order a couple of each. I prefer 4" patches, so those will be "used". But with availability what it will be, we can always order more! (And the pins when those are available!)

Looking forward to receiving them! Thanks for all the effort made by everyone, especially Dave (the winning design) and Robert for making this happen!

An (overdue) update on shipping:

Best laid plans and all, I had arranged for a surprise extra that I wanted to include with each patch order — which of course, was delayed — and so rather than hold the orders any longer, all have been packaged, sealed and will be on their way to everyone on Friday (Oct. 18).

I expect the surprise extra will now be ready in time for the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation show at Kennedy Space Center next month, and so we'll have it there along with other new logo-emblazoned items.

After the show, the other items will be offered for ordering online (and will include the extra bonus with those purchases).

Thank you for the update, Robert. I was afraid they got lost in the USPS' infamous black hole!

I was going to order one now, as someone on the list who gave contributions/opinions on the original design thread, but I think I'll hold off to see what these new items are going to be.

Looking forward to seeing what else is coming out!

No worries, there will be other opportunities to get the surprise (and it's not a huge thing, I don't want to get hopes up too much). Worst case scenario, you can e-mail me (when they are available) and I'll mail you one.

All the pending patch orders were shipped today, so watch your mailboxes!

THANK YOU, Robert! My patches arrived in the mailbox today. It is good to see the design rendered in thread, first hand. I, too, will be making some Space Geek friends and family members very happy with some samples.

I received the two 4 inch patches a few days ago. They are very nice. I support the ideas for a collectSPACE pin, medallion, cap/hat, coffee cup, water bottle,
calendar, space pen, key chains, polo shirt, mouse pad, and bags.

I'm certain these are 1:1 full scale orbiter and crew cabin simulators. Can't wait!
