Good morning everyone...
This is a second request regarding camporee patch designs. My troop is
putting together a camporee for our chartered partner this fall (LDS
camporee) for about 10 troops (and others in the area who may wish to
come...). We would like to have camporee patches; however, I have not found
any suitable suppliers.
"Suitable", in this case, has nothing to do with whether or not we like
them. It has EVERYTHING to do with a patch supplier who will 1) give us an
estimate on cost; 2) render some assistance in the design (none of us can
draw); and 3) actually respond to e-mails and give the answers above (not
just claim that they will give the answers at some point).
We will look at "canned" or premade patches; however, none of the one's I've
seen to this point are anything that I like. Therefore, I am asking two
very different questions:
1) If anyone has conducted a camporee for religious groups before and has
patch designs along those lines, I'd love to see them.
2) If anyone has ordered patches before (and we are likely talking a small
quantity here...<100) and has had success in all three areas above, please
let me know who you worked with. I have emailed several patch makers in
various parts of the country. The only one who emailed back was in
Arkansas; that was about a month ago. No subsequent emails have been
Thanks for the resource help!
