Licensed product sales -  We have license agreements with the Marine Corps and the Navy.

When this Cap is reached Im required to turn off sales of those items until the next license year begins.

  NASA  Patches:  I have permission to make and sell two versions of the meatball  The Blue & Red  and the Black & white

Our Library of tooling for leather patches is extensive and we enjoy adding to it whenever possible.
This is a costly process and limited resources require us to consider the costs of tooling, prototypes and future sales when we  take on a new design. We Require a minimum order of the new patch when you place the order .  If you cant do a minimum , we can hold the artwork on file until there are enough people on board to do the order .  

  • To  quote your patch in leather , We will need a good quality graphic in  jpg or vector format . Tiny Gifs are usually not sufficient .   Embroidered patch samples lose much of the detail we need to produce a great patch in leather .  If its all that is available  we will do our best . I cant do single patch or nametag orders that require new tooling.
  • The Size  you wish the patch to be.
  • The color s of your present patch and  an ideal of what you want in leather, Vintage color or full color or brown tones .
  • Please ensure that the graphic you email us for quote is the version of the Patch you want made .
  •  If you change graphics in mid process we will need to re-quote the job . If you change graphics after approving and having us order tooling  we will have to charge you for the additional tooling costs . 
  • Making a new design takes time , Please contact us well in advance of  your need.

Once you approve the  quote We do a drawing of the patch and email it to you for approval or change. When the drawing is approved we order the tooling. Gypsy will make one prototype and email a photo for approval - The  colors can be changed  but the shape, size and design  are fixed.
