Patches are FUN!
$5 will get a patch and a couple of stickers to your door.
This is the first of many embroidered patch designs that we will be releasing. The patches are being made here in the USA! That is no small feat from all the research I have been doing. There are plenty of brokers that claim to offer Made in the USA for a markup. Most, after multiple emails and being pressed on the issue were unable to deliver, or wanted crazy prices, and were not transparent enough in the supply chain. The general excuse is that the margins are better using the machines to embroider logos on cheap imported promo gear, and that is a real shame.
Through my network of bike friends I was able to find a company in Pennsylvania keeping some dedicated machines in working order for small batch production of vintage patch reproductions. After a few email exchanges it became clear that this was the real deal. The patches are currently in production and should be here for distribution in early July.
Update: We are bumping the 8oz bag to lucky 13 at $15 a bag...But wait...
