QuoteChanging the size of the symbol, as necessary, is encouraged and appropriate however, other manipulations of the symbol are not. Examples of manipulations include, but are not limited to:Stretching/distorting the signature, logotype or symbolAdding or subtracting anything from the symbolCradling anything inside the symbol not approved/registered with Air Force Historical Research AgencyDrawing or portraying objects coming through or protruding from the symbolUsing unapproved colorsAdding shadows or special effectsChanging the symbol's texture
Quote from: ddelaney103 on August 23, 2007, 02:26:36 amI like it - but you do understand that that's a major "no no" under the guidance on the use of the "origami eagle," don't you?

If I understand them, this should be in accordance with established standards, but parts of that confused me a little. I'm afraid that design is much more suited for a computer graphic than the world of embroidered patches.I would suggest shrinking it down to patch size (around 3" high) and looking at it from a distance from 5 to 8 feet. You will find the detail and the similar colors will blend into an indistinct patch.I would also suggest ditching the sqdn number. That will just be annoying code to the average viewer.
Quote from: LtCol White on August 23, 2007, 07:20:52 pmLooks great. Having a lot of experience with designing patches, I have to agree that you will encounter problems when making it into a patch. You will lose a lot of the small detail you see now.

Quote from: RiverAux on August 27, 2007, 03:44:01 pmShould the Tallahassee patch have the CAP overseas insignia within it? Seems a little odd. Looks great, but I agree would probably not work as an actual patch.

Quote from: alamrcn on August 27, 2007, 03:14:58 pmAs long as whomever places the order doesn't "cheep out" with the lowest bidder, I've seen more complex patches come out just fine. The main problem area will be on the far right, where the gray parts will only be a few stiches tall.
QuoteI'd suggest giving them separate artwork - or even a photograph of the skyline - and let the manufacturer's layout people put together a "proof" for you. They will do it based on your concept, but better suited to what their loom is capable of. This will tell you if you need to look for someone else with better technology to make it or not.
QuotePerhaps the removal, or relocation of the charter number, will give more room to play with the details. The size that appears above is good - a 3" diameter disk is pretty standard, but don't make it 3" tall including the tabs.
