I've been seeing a lot of patch threads lately and I felt like it's the right time to lend a hand.
For those of you not familiar with Kommandostore, we're a company spun off of /k/ which sells a lot of military surplus clothing and equipment along with teeshirts, patches, and other goodies we custom manufacture.
I'm posting here now, because KommandoStore is doing a run of patches for /k/ very soon. I've got a graphic team already working on prepping the designs for production, it would be trivial for us to throw in a few more for you guys on top of that.
Provided more than 100 people want any given patch we have the resources to get manufacturing and distribution done cheaply, and the previous experience necessary to ensure that we're delivering a quality product.
TL;DR If you can dream it, we'll buff up the design, and have it available on our site in about 2.5 weeks.
Available patch types:
Iron on 100% embroidered patches with merrowed (sewn) border
Hook and Loop 100% embroidered partches with merrowed (sewn) border
Hook and Loop vinyl patches
Feel free to post in this thread or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Run 100 each of the bear at the table, the shield with the ursa major, the mora shield, and the cairn kicker.
All 100% embroidered w/ merrowed edge and iron on backing.
Don't run them where they look like hammered dog shit with zero definition on the bears face. Make a better cairn kicker patch than the shit that was just produced. Maybe offer different constellations in the shield patch. Some people wanted Orion, others the Southern Cross, etc.
The shield with Orion that I shit out of Paint.
The original round patch design. Notice that there is actually detail inside the white portion of the face. Unlike the craptastic PVC shit.
The OP patch proof I had made as woven patch.
If possible, have the 100% embroidered patch made with this level of detail.
I have 50 coming. They will be sold somehow. Have a Tictail store already, but probably won't go that route.
If Ivan wanted to purchase them all from me at my cost, I would sell them to go up on their store.
Once I have them in hand, I'll shoot you an email through the store.
Attached is the design that another Anon had made into cairn kicker patches. IMO there needs to be something different done. I will post another image next reply.
Something with a stylized stick figure kicking over a cairn would be a better patch. The attached image is just something I found to illustrate my idea, it would need better refinement prior to becoming patch worthy.
I have 200 of the bear with Mora patches coming friday. If you want those Ivan I would sell them to you for cost. After the oatch fiasco that one anon created I have lost all motivation to sell.
Anon I'll buy from you, you did everything right asking us and showing the development. Also the prices you said were very very fair, even a bit low I would say. If you come with your thread and start selling the patches they will sell like hot bread.
I might make an ursa shield variant when I get home later on today.
Also thanks for making my mailman think I'm being hunted down by a crazy ex-girlfriend, he had a good laugh. jacket feels great Ivan, thank you
Now it looks like the guy is sniffing the wolfs armpit.
Also, I couldnt find any good wolf pictures which would resemble it being body slammed so I used WOFL if you havent noticed yet
>couldnt find good wolf pictures
this would be cool but i don't think 100 people would want it
could the shield patch be made without any constellation and the recipient add it themselves without damaging the structural integrity of the patch?
I would love an /out/ patch with the phrase "Not all those who wander are lost" on it. Since I like the bear as the /out/ mascot how about just a bear silloute on a path with the phrase.
Bear in pic related would look nice.
IVAN!! I have a few out patches but I want one of the sitting bear with the Southern Cross (Crux) in the sky. I had a vector saved for it but I must have deleted it.
for me, I'd suggest having these 3 available. They're the ones that will probably be a more consistent sell:
bear and tree on shield no constellation.
bear w/mora and sc/out/ wording
original patch. I have one from the first run and it's about 2.5 inches in diameter for reference.
The main, main thing is to check the proofs with people here. One thing with the vinyl ones you already have is the nose isn't black which I find irritating. I'd buy one if it was fixed. The vinyl bear patch is perfect otherwise. But it will be nice to have a regular source to obtain them from so my blessing with them.
>Stickers would also be nice to have available. Maybe even more so than the patches.
I would buy a gross (that's 144ct for those that don't know) of each sticker, and probably two of each patch.
>bear bodyslam wolf
Perhaps this will help?
lol I got curious so I ordered some. Should have them in 2 weeks.
I think it should be the atomic elbow, just replace Jesus with a wolf
I'm thinking of having a fleece with this embroidered on it. If you guys like the design I might have a couple more made.
Just checked the site, these product descriptions are fucking hilarious.
Anyone have any experience getting things shipped to UK (obv not a lower ofr anything like that)
I definitely need to try Ivans spicy nuts
This isnt related to the patches, but could you try to get some of these in stock ivan? They are the police equivilent to the fleck goretex parka but they are flece lined so they keep you warm at the same time. They are preaty popular in the UK but i cant seem to find them in the us from other milsurp stores.
Some patches I found on /fa/
Here are two blank templates I made for you guys to experiment with. The first one has a smaller border and the second one is the original size. Have fun
The wolf looks fantastic. The guy's arms remind me of pic related.
There'd be some problems with the tail, small bumps on the back, mouth (suggest you make it bigger), foot closest to the edge, tiny gap between flexing bicep and chin and the line in the background.
Looks pretty good though.
Hope I didn't fuck it up more. What do I need to change with the line in the background?
one guy already tried to rip us off, /out/ isn't that easily fooled.
I trust in Ivan's ability to deliver a superior product, and I'd purchase kommando store over crimson caravan just on principle.
I'm genuinely curious what I did to offend you so badly. Nothing wrong with choosing who you spend your money on, just wondering which "principle" you're referring to.
your business simply isn't consistent, and you seem to always skirt by on Ivan's coat tails.
Sure you offer a much wider patch selection, but you simply don't have the volume ivan does.
>your business simply isn't consistent,
Could you elaborate?
>but you simply don't have the volume ivan does.
I'm well aware of that and unfortunately it's to be expected when Ivan does this 24/7 and has 6-7 hard working /k/ommandos on payroll. I am one person working 40-50 hours a week at my day job and working TCC in my free time. I slowly expand my stock as time and funds allow. Ivan has more money, more connections and more man power. He's worked hard for it and I intend to work hard to improve myself and the store's inventory. Thank you for the feedback, it helps.
You already fucked up offering a shit quality product. You have to get your foot in the door as cheap or extremely high quality and you did neither of those. I get that you're not as big as Ivan but you have to offer something unique about your process/product or anons just regard you as rubbish
>You already fucked up offering a shit quality product.
You're going to have to spell it out to me because I haven't had anyone complain as much as you are, and you haven't even purchased anything from me. Which low quality product are you referring to?
/k/ bitches about you guys all the fucking time.
greentext stories about ordering from CC and taking months to get orders, or you shuttering your doors and stop doing business for undisclosed amounts of time.
Also you are talking to more than one person, so you being autistic is probably among other reasons.
I have bought patches from you, I was pleased, but that's about all I will buy.
again, you are talking to multiple people here expressing how you are infact the inferior; although not nearly as bad as the anon in the thread from the other day who tried to sell us all 1inch x 1inch patches for 10-12 bucks apiece at 35 dollar shipping, that shit was priceless.
I'm glad to hear you were satisfied with your order. What changes/improvements would you like to see? All of the store proceeds go to expanding the inventory and supporting the free outdoor/firearm meetups "NuggetFest" so I'd love to hear your ideas.

There wasn't any criticism in that comment that hasn't already been revised. Orders ship out in less than a week and the store is staying open. If you have constructive criticism please share it with me so I can resolve it too.
Patches arrived today fam! I think they look great! I am keeping ine patch for myself and the rest go to Ivan on monday (he has agreed to sell them) so keep a look out on the kommando store.
Here is the sc/out/ patch along side roundguy and splatcats patch.
I think they make an awesome threesome.
Sweet jesus, all the crybaby going on in this thread. Personally I appreciate any effort on anybody's part to provide more options for goods and services. If you're not happy with the good or service, then shop elsewhere. Capitalism baby, yeah.
Hi guise! This is last chance to place orders for these patches and a few more. This is the Shield patch I made! Thanks to all the anons who ordered all ready I will be shipping all of your patches on Monday.
Please look at my shop and see if you like them!
Post designs and sizes and I might do another run in the future. I don't have allot of free time so I might only be able to do it later this year. Just note it will be pricey as my supplier makes great designs in terms of stitching and coloring the patches...she also charges allot for her work.
Why do you want such a patch anon? For homosecks purpose?
I'm still here. Please don't post in my threads again I'm sure you faggot trolls are the reason it got deleted rather than anything I did. Also I will renew the banner with your posts included just to make you even more bitter.
this isn't your thread faggot. stay out of legit patch fag threads. what you're doing shilling your chinese shit in other patch threads goes against the rules of the marketplace. and we will still go to yours to warn anons of being ripped off. since you are not an honorable merchant trying to steal other people's customers by making them think you are them.
yes, exactly like that. is it possible to make the black a darker brown though?
>just made my first Kommando Store purchase.
It wasn't a patch, it was a hat. Also, I wish the M1 Garand Scarf didn't have a /k/ reference on it. I like /k/, but as a general rule I try not to advertise that I go on 4chan.
The scarf would be fun to operate my Garand in to :/
Has anyone ever gone to that picnic table?
Ausfag here, can you make this happen bro?
Touch it up if you think it needs it but would be awesome if you could do this.
thanks in advance.
Ivan, we just need another run just like these or with the Orion constellation. If you'd make them like this and not super bright green and shit like that other guys it would be perfect
We don't even have bears, though. If it's a patch for Ausfags I'm only going to buy it if it reflects us.
AT LEAST you could make it a koala or a kangaroo at the table, or something.
If you want to get fancy you might have to create something new though, since I don't think we have our own /out/ memes, right?
Like, you could a stencil of Ivan Milat and caption it with
>WHERE THE BLOODY HELL ARE YOU?
Are you the anon that had all the woven patches made? They do look good. Much better than the south african shit patches. Are you still dropping them off at goodwill or will you try to sell them?
Too much 10/10 qt slav pussy gets a guy tired.
yeah I'm excited, Chad did a good job.
got a fleck winter hat too!
just wish I didn't miss the trick or treat item.
super bummed I missed out on that, got box art though which should be fun.
I've ordered my Mora bear
didn't see the trick or treat option though :( bollocks
Ivan, you're sending one to Wales,UK plz see this and put a trick in the box!
Not bad, but that's a suplex. Pic related is a body slam.
Could you sort something out for me mate? Like a direct Paypal transaction or something? I'm UK so assuming:
This is the going rate could I not just directly Paypal you $7.99 and my address and job's a good un?
Cairns are a way of marking summits or paths, and are added and rebuilt by people passing by, cooperating and communicating through time without ever meeting.
And kicking them is the sort of thing a churlish rouge might do. I'm sure you might be able to extrapolate why that might be appealing to people that like to go both innawoods and >>/out/
I received my order today and selected the trick option. I can't figure out what the trick was/is. Nothing else in the box besides the actual merch.
That wasn't the trick..was it?
how about you sit the fuck down, and shut the fuck up.
this was something wanted by the community, and was initially done for free by roundguy. splatcat and roundguy 2.0 did if for minimal profit, ( like 5%)
All of this has come from the fucknugget trying to coin it buy producing shitty quality patches for $$$ and shillin' his shit with a banner ad ( may he rot in the hell of the upside down sinners)
Ivan (may the gods bless his Slav ass) has redeemed the situation.
Well, the almonds do but the chest rig smells like millsurp and comes from Africa and I don't want to get Ebola or something.
This, I would like a cairn builder please. Not a fagotty hipster type, but an actual hiker where you can see the intent and caring.
Cairns have been used since the dawn of time to mark trails and remains. They are sacred. Cairns not serving one of these purposes built by hipsters are shit and deserve to be kicked though so I want both a builder and a kicker patch.
I washed the chest-rig and found sand and a cigarette butt in the lint trap of the drier. Maybe that was is? I ain't even mad if there was nothing, I just want to know for sure.
The almonds are awesome btw.
I was wondering what people were going to get for the trick option
here is what I got by only selecting treat
