Just to clarify, Steve gives diameter of badges as 36mm. The ones I am having made are a bit bigger, at 55mm. Hope that's ok. On the plus side Martyn says they are only 40p each.

I have ordered 50, so there are still a fair number going begging.

Anyone who wants some who hasn't received instructions on what to do, please pm me.

I'll let you know the lead time shortwith dreckly.

Saw Martyn this morning. He has a batch of 100 morris badges to make, then he'll do ours. Says they should be ready by the end of the week. He's dependable, so I'm pretty sure they will be.

OK Greg, I'm off to Whitby in a couple of days, and won't be home again for two weeks. So yes I still want some, but it will have to wait till my return, unless they are ready really quickly and you're going to Whitby  >:E

Collected the badges this morning.
New topic started, in general discussion (OK Theo?), as promised.

Steve, Ed, et. al
Is this art work copywrite or otherwise owned? 
Can those of us on this side of the Pond or otherwise distant use the .pdf and "make our own"?
(i.e. for single, own use, not for sale or distribution)?
And if "yes" does someone have a high res .pdf for the purpose?
tnx.

I believe the copyright is Steve's. I am sure he will be along directly but why not send him your question in a PM?

As creator of the image, I do own the copyright, but I am happy to license it free of charge for non-commercial, not-for-profit, personal use.
Steve C: send me a PM with your e-mail address and I will send you a high-resolution version of the badge artwork.

The same goes for anyone else who wants it.

For readers information, I mistakenly only put a single 2nd class stamp on s.a.e for 2 badges. Got surcharged £1.50 by Royal Mail ( 50p excess postage plus £1.00 handling fee). That will teach me to be stingy. Also, I have to trail down to post office to collect the letter. Humph!

Don't understand how that could happen. I made the postage up on all the ones that were short. Checked them at the point of posting. Sorry if I missed it.

Correct postage was large letter.

Not your fault. As I said, I should have put more stamps on sae originally. I shall treasure the badges even more now.

Greg, how much are you out of pocket by having to make up the postage for the badges?
It doesn’t seem fair that the burden should be on you. I, for instance owe you 30p. 🙀

It all worked out about square. A few people didn't put enough on. A few people overpaid and said keep the change
the former can be grateful to the latter (:)

Badges sent to Geoff and Nigel.

That's every one I received an order for. Anyone not got theirs (apart from Jimmy)?

I still have a few spare, not many, though.
