By Tipsy Gypsy

Squadron Order Que is CLOSED  I dont  want to generate more  orders than  can be produced  so the squadron  order que is  now closed until  we can complete what we have  in work . Watch the website for  updates  next quarter .

 The nametag line is  open and we will continue to take tag and US flag orders as these complete and ship relatively  fast and have their own production line.  

 The  webstore is open  and stock items there ship almost immediately .

We made changes this year ,  We shifted our  custom production to Squadron / Command orders   and stopped  taking  small Individual custom patch orders.  For these folks I'm  doing  Inventory  that gets stocked on the webstore for immediate purchase . This  is  a more  efficient  way to  work and it allows me to leverage my resources for maximum output = more patches, more nametags , faster and  max quality all the time .  

 Getting lots of  requests to do  single custom orders again : I don't like saying no  to you guys  but Its not possible to make the needed changes and keep doing the old production modes at the same time. It will take me a while to ramp up Inventory -  If Its on the Price list and not yet in stock in the store and you need one or two,  send us an email with wishlist in the subject and Ill see if we can get some on.

Gypsy's Workbench:

  Thank you  to all  for keeping us  very busy last year.  
Our production capacity  is small  and we have  generated some epic backlogs.  This year Im making changes to  Improve delivery time and prevent backlog situations . Take a look at my News / Blog page from the menu links on the left .

Name Tags - You can order and receive a Gypsy Name tag in a reasonable time frame. 
 Ill be  focusing on  Shipping nametag and flag orders as quickly as  they can be produced -  I have a dedicated  line just for getting this done .

Patch Orders for Individuals -  
 I am  stocking patches  on our Webstore at  You can browse whats in stock pay and  check out with the cart  This will  keep us from having to  make a patch from scratch for every order . This also means you  can get  a patch right away  as long as its in stock .  If you dont see what you need , send us a wish list email and Ill  see about getting it in stock .

Squadron Orders :  the majority of our production  capacity is reserved for the squadrons  / PAO /XO or whoever runs shotgun for your  patch  program .  If you need  a new setup  or  more quantity than we have in stock on the web - or you need everything made from the same batch .  This is where you get  it done .  Our Min Order for this service level is 15 patches     Contact us if your Interested in a Squadron buy  

2019  Catalog
  Price list has been updated  Update pending as soon as I can get to it  .

   Change Orders:
   Additional  patches  or  changes once your order is  in work.
Case by case depending on how far along we are  with the work
Once Nametags are typeset into the leather  they can not be changed .  webstore:  I set this up  so you can access everything I have in stock that isn't set aside for another order .  Anything you order there is in inventory and gets shipped within a few  days.  I also have limited qtys of  2nd quality patches  available at  discount price . If its there and you want it,  Use the shopping cart.   Click on the A-7 Pic below  to go to the web store.
