I'm slightly confused. Who is going to be making the badges? You really need the higher resolution artwork, especially if you are going for the larger size (55 mm) badge. Let me know your e-mail address by PM and I'll send you the hi-res image. (the file size, 700 kb, is too large to post as an attachment on this forum).

Well, I offered to get them made. and others seem keen for me to follow it up. I think you must have missed my posts, Steve. I'll pm you.

Edit. I think the man formerly known as Edward confused the issue by crediting Nigel with my offer.

Anyone who wants one (or more), pm me.

Sorry Greg, I didn't men to try to muscle in! It's just that when Nigel said "volunteer to collect the orders" I took it to mean (well!) that he'd do it. (Collect the orders, that is, nothing more.)

Best way I can work this out is:

1.  pm me what you  want, so I a) get a count of how big a batch to get made, b) can give you my address.
2. I'll get some made.
3. When they're made I'll post to let you know.
4. Send me a stamped addressed envelope with small change enclosed (probably 50p ish).
I'll send your badge return of post.

That's uncannily close to what I suggest.

"To you! From me!" How did the Chuckle Brothers be so funny without rude bits?  ;D

Back to subject: I've just PM'd Greg. I had two of the original stickers, one on a fiddle case and the other on my holiday hold suitcase. Very easy to find the case on the airport merry-go-round!

I'm a Yorkie!
My other melodeon's a fiddle, but one of my Hohners has six strings! I also play a very red Hawkins Bazaar in C and a generic Klingenthaler spoon bass in F.!! My other pets (played) are gobirons - Hohner Marine Band in C, Hohner Tremolo in D and a Chinese Thingy Tremolo in G.

Ha! But to name a few.... Tommy Cooper. Ken Dodd, Bill Bailey, Cannon and Ball and many more.  8)
Anyway I digress. I’ve got stickers somewhere but metal badges sound brilliant.

What does a melodeon and a lawsuit have in common?

Everybody’s happy when the case is closed

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.

Only just picked up this thread...

If folks want to make their own badges in this style, a good place to track down a badge-making machine
might be the local student's union, scout troop, school, w.h.y. Such organisations sometimes have these
machines. I made several many years ago (featuring that 'orrible yellow bird that BT used to use in their
'phone advertising campaign(?)).

Already in hand might be a more accurate description of progress. Martyn, the maker, doesn't get back from Avebury until tonight  :D

"they came from furrin pairts."

What, like south of the Tyne?
I thought you did live south of the Tyne Edward - and sometimes well east of that river too! Given Sir John's location, he more likely meant south of the Tweed  ;)
