The patches are officially ordered and paid for as of today. Thanks to every one of you who’s supported SPAZ this year after our break last year, we’ve presold so many, we may run out as soon as we get the pre-orders taken care of and need a 2nd run!
I’ve attached the official final patch sample design, as you can see, it looks freaking sweet!
The stickers however still need some love. Please spread the word to your scooter friends to buy some thru our pre-order link, as we still need to pre-sell 15-25 more for me to justify the cost of the stickers just to get them ordered.

So, here’s the deal. I am trying to work out what to charge for these based on my costs which include the stickers themselves, the PayPal fees and shipping.
Based on rough estimates, here is what I’d have to charge currently to break even. (And by break even, I mean pay for the stickers, PayPal and postage, which doesn’t cover my time, envelopes or the art cost.)
1 Sticker, $1.50 (@ $1.50 each)
4 Stickers, $3.50 (@ $.88 each)
Of course, I could do quantities of more then 4, and I’d hope most of you would want at least 4.
Would you rather buy them in chunks of say 4 or more or be able to buy just one at a time? If I don’t allow 1 at a time until I’ve got enough pre-orders, it means a lot more money coming in to help me cover my upfronts to get the stickers run.
I personally buy stickers in chunks so I have lots to stick onto everything. They end up on my scooter, my laptop, my car, handed to friends, etc.
As I’ve said many times, I only charge what covers my costs and no more. If there is any extra, it just goes back into covering costs for more of the stickers etc. I wish I made a little on these so I could fund the next run for the next year but I don’t like charging a lot, I want it to be so affordable you feel like you are truly getting my love from afar and a great price.
Let me break these costs down for you so you see where the money goes:
1 Sticker would cost:
$.60 for the sticker, $.32 for PayPal fees and $.45 for postage (US/CA)
4 Stickers would cost:
$2.40 for the stickers, $.37 for the PayPal fees and $.45 for postage (US/CA)
Anymore then 4 and the weight of the envelope brings postage up to $.62, and so on.
So. There’s the breakdown. What are your thoughts?
I will start a pre-order on these as soon as I figure out what you guys want to do.
In the meantime, please spread the word to everyone you know. I can’t make this happen without your love and support.
Hey all! As you know, I’ve revealed the Patch design for this years SPAZ, and I am now proud to show you the sticker design. It’s much more detailed and pops nicely. These will be outstanding stickers!
I will have Pre-order info up soon for these. I am trying to work out the cost so I can pass you guys along the lowest pricing.
See the forum for more info etc, please:

I am very excited to reveal this years SPAZ Patch design, created by our special guest artist Jared Hensley. Please visit the Modern Buddy site too, it’s a great scooter community.
Pre-order info is coming as soon as I get pricing from the patch makers. And the sticker design is due very soon as well.
Patches and Stickers…
I swear they are coming. I am just really behind this year. Stickers will most likely happen first, based on a design I did last year. Then patches.
Oh, and I’m trying to move info/news here so it’s more accessible than just the Modern Buddy forum, I want to bring in scooterists from all groups if possible. Because, I really need that many more people to ship patches to. lol :D
