I posted below about trying to find embroidered medic alert patches to sew onto my son's D kit. The answers I received indicate that I'm not the only one looking for these, so I have an idea. When my kids were taking karate a few years ago, I designed two patches for the school and had them made up by a company I found online. They did a FANTASTIC job for a reasonable price. The minimum order was 100 patches. I know I could use at least 2-3 of these, and one person has PM-ed to say she would like 5-7. That's 10% of an order right there. If enough other people are interested, I could put this together and make these available. It would also be something nice I could do in return for all of you out there who have helped my family with extra supplies for the last several years, too! I haven't checked current prices, but I'm thinking that the patches would cost about $5 each, maybe less. I was thinking a round patch, black black background, with the red medic alert symbol (the one that looks like a six-point star with flat points, and the medical snake symbol over it). It would say "Medic Alert - Type 1 Diabetes," or "Diabetes," or something similar. Unfortunately, we could not do individual names or anything -- they would have to be identical. If you are interested in participating in this and getting some patches for a good price, post below with how many you would be interested in. If I can get a committment for, say, 50-75 patches, I'd be willing to go ahead with it and sell the extras on eBay. (I said PM at first, but my mailbox is getting full and I don't have time to go clean it out right now.) Also, comment below if you have any specific suggestions for the design. I would keep it as simple and clear as possible, using the universally-recognized medic alert symbol, but if you have color or wording preferences, etc., please send me your suggestions. Susan (from Alabama) also indicated that she might try to make these on her embroidery machine. Susan, if you still want to do this, let me know and I won't pursue this. However, I can tell you that I did have an embroidery machine when I designed our karate school patches, and after investigating the costs, it was very clear to me that I couldn't do it for as low a price. By the time I had bought blank patches, digitized the design, bought the thread, and spent the 20-30 minutes it took to prep and stitch each patch, it wasn't cost effective at all for me to do it myself. It was going to cost me something like three times as much to make it worth my time. But you may be in a better situation than I was. Please PM me and let me know if you'd like to do this as a money-raiser for your own family, and I'll set my idea aside.
