Who wants to make their own MHI patches?

Remember the patch contest? Click here to see the awesome creativity of the Monster Hunter Nation, as they designed MHI patches for their home areas.  http://larrycorreia.wordpress.com/2009/07/15/monster-hunter-international-patch-contest/  I’m going to be doing another one of these in the near future.

There have been several people that have asked me about making their own MHI patches for everything from gun clubs to RPGs. I’m all in favor of it. I’m not sensitive about my logo being used for anything noncommercial. All I ask is that you send me photos to stick up on the blog.

That said, I recently found out that somebody I’ve known for a while has started a custom embroidery company. She recently did a small run of some custom MHI patches.

Hopie said: The first group of MHI approved patches that Crooked Stitch Creations made
was for Jeff Macklin and the people of Z.E.R.T. (Zombie Emergency Response
Team) who hail from Eastern TN.  They have an annual Zombie Shoot-up every
Halloween and now will totally be geared up tight!

Hopie does good work, she’s awesome, and I recommend her. Here is her contact information.

I’ll be doing another patch contest so that another fan created patch can go into Monster Hunter Legion. When I do, I will put Hopie’s contact info again if anybody wants to go ahead and get their made.

For the record, Hopie’s husband is a member of Reader Force Alpha and looks suspiciously like David Spade. In fact, when we were in Vegas together, along with Mike Kupari, we were often mistaken for James Gandolfini, David Spade, and Bender the Robot out for a night on the town. (EOD techs are often mistaken for robots, because EOD uses robots in their job, and both are often intoxicated).

  1. Why do you do this to me? Now I have no excuse to make the MHI Miami Patches

  2. I’m still thinking a Skinwalker and Will o’ the wisp for a patch. Should be simple enough.

  3. Hmmm… Vegas patch… Do I go with something from the book or something original? Do I include Elvis with a stake or a stripper pole through a zombie head?

    This should be FUN!

  4. That is so cool that you let us do this.

  5. By the way – Love that pic!

  6. Why are James Gandolfini and David Spade dating?

  7. Larry,

    You know you’re welcome at our annual Zombie Shoot if you happen to be near E. TN around Halloween. Thanks for being so cool.

    Happy shooting, brother.

  8. So I made a patch. Should I email it to you or wait for the contest?

  9. Time to brush up my skills and draw up a sweet WI team patch…

  10. Larry,

    Thanks for doing this again for those who missed it last time. I already have two patch designs finished and am having a lot of fun getting them ready to be submitted.

    Thanks for letting us have a chance to ‘play’ in the MHI Universe you created.

    -Scott
