    Escouts Merchandise

    We have agreed the course of action for merchandise for Escouts. The team has agreed:

    A) The initial financing of the production of the items and:

    B) The items that will be produced.

    They are:

    An Escouts Badge and ;

    An Escouts Wristband

    We are aiming to have these produced soon, in time for the Jamboree, but obviously they are not Jamboree specific.

    When I have more information on costs and timescales, I will post that.

    Badge Designs





    Thanks to Phil Banyard for this design

    This has now became a poll

    Em nope

    I'm thinking of the blue Escouts Logo (no tagline)on a white background with a blue border. With or without the URL

    If anyone would like to knock one up that would be great, but I haven't got time for a long drawn out contest or anything.

    Thanks

    To be honest I expected it to be Escouts.org.uk or similar.

    I think it needs to be more than the escouts logo and something that stands out. Treat it a little bit like an advert - make it stand out. Its like some businesses do, for example if you saw a bright orange carrier bag, even if you couldn't see the logo you probibly know where its from - have a guess!

    Ill see what I can do with it too.
