Melnet Badges
« on: August 09, 2018, 05:25:55 PM »

Are these badges still available. Saw one on an instrument bag today at Sidmouth  and it rather caught my eye.?

Not sure if there are any spare. I forget who actually had them made. I did the artwork and I still have the graphics files available if anyone wants to take on getting some more made.

Any chance of an example, please?

I have a friend who has a badge making business. Good standard good prices (makes morris and festival stuff for everyone interested round West Devon and East Cornwall). If you can let me have the artwork I'll run it past him.

Were they embroidered, or printed, on fabric, or were they stickers or what? I'd certainly be up for one if someone undertakes to have some more made.

There is no point changing your name Winston and pretending that you come from North of the Tyne. We know better! If you're not careful, you might be locked into Room 101 and forced to play tunes across the rows from reading the dots.
I'll buy 3 of those badges.

Were they embroidered, or printed, on fabric, or were they stickers or what? I'd certainly be up for one if someone undertakes to have some more made.
They were proper metal badges with the usual safety-pin type sharp prong on the back They were circular, 36 mm diameter with the oval badge design on a white circular background. I'll try to post a photo soon.

That sounds very nice, Steve. Just right for pinning to a couple of bellows folds!

I'd offer to knock some out, but sadly my badge machine was stolen a while back. Really bright thieves - they took the machine but left me with the cutting and assembly dies, without which the machine is useless, and boxes of badge blanks, fridge magnets, keyrings.......    Not got round to replacing it yet.

Martyn of Catseye Morris can do them if we want. 55mm "button" badges, as described by Steve. About 50p each, depending on quantity.

Excellent. Presumably, we just need a volunteer to collect the orders.

2 for me, to add to Nigel's 3. It's a start for his order, and we've got to start somewhere, haven't we? If we all commit to a couple it'll soon add up!
