Quote from: alamrcn on March 01, 2007, 03:45:10 pmI've gathered a bunch of USAF used shapes on my website at...http://www.incountry.us/cappatches/creation.html...under the "Size and Shape" section.I reference the USAF Shield/Disk instruction and some others, but don't make a big deal of them. If following the USAF guidlines is something that your unit feels good about doing, fantastic. CAP not having any such guidelines can be both good and bad in many ways, but it sure makes for a lot of great history!Something not mentioned in the USAF instruction or on my website is that all colors (red,green,blue, black,etc) within the field should be separated by a metal (white,yellow,silver,gold). The standard, or primary focus symbol of the patch is usually not subject to this, just the background. VERY, VERY few patches follow this heraldric guideline. There are so many of these little tid-bit rules, that they start to encroch on the whole design process.I say, "Do what you want with your patch, but make sure it represents EVERYONE that wears it, and there is good reason and purpose for everything included in it." I think that is a good enough rule by itself for Civil Air Patrol patches.-AceI\/PATCHES!
