Alright, it looks like this design is what is working.



This thread isn't for orders, I will take those via email when the time comes (I'm going to set up a seperate email address just for patch orders). However, the design is somewhat finalized, but the sizing isn't. I need to get a general consensus on what size is best.

So, vote in the pole, voice your opinions, and post up your own design if you'd like - nothing is set in stone yet.

Oh yeah, if you're not planning on ordering a patch, then don't vote.

Size

I'm torn on the size thing.....In a way I'd like them on both shoulders like the Joe Rocket badge but then again it'd be cool to have a large one for the back of my jacket. This way when I pass some unsuspecting poser on a sportbike he'll immedietly know he got smoked by an SV. :D :lol: 8)

That thing looks like something out of a "Simpson's" episode... :? Something about it says, "Not cool." IMHO, not that it matters...

Max, as we discussed, that looks great!

I mentioned to Max that the engine protrusions may need a thicker black line for the patch, but other than that, I think it looks perfect.

Without the white background, this is what it'll look like (of course, the black border will be added onto the engine protrusions):

Why the colored oval in the background?? Why not just die cut around the SV and motor logo?

Like this hat I got:

Unlike your hat, the patch needs shape around the engine, hence the oval. I'm no patach expert, but I assume the cost would go way up if the design is cut around the engine and text. The oval is done in Team Suzuki colors, so the design does have meaning behind it:

Looks great! I definitely like the oval the best. Is it me, or does the engine look like its turned just a bit counter-clockwise? Is it like that on the bike?

Getting better and better

Guys,

The design is getting better and better. Its beginning to look a little more refined. Make it and they will come(or buy).

Input is needed. I changed the outter edges and darkened the engine to so it blends with the background more.
Oh sweetness. I would prefer a smaller one- to put on my jacket sleeve, backpack, etc.

Yeah so just put a white border around it. the bloods and crips are going to get mad cause you mixed their colors.
