    Design looks great! I missed out on grabbing an East badge, but I was wearing my Prime one already so I didn't feel left out.

    Was there any consideration put into how this would look with a pax badge overlapping it? I guess it will cover the top neatly, and show the "Forum Name:____" where the PAX Badge ends?

    Great design, as usual. I like the Old Timey stuff you're doing with the back this year.

    I also really enjoy the theme this year. :) Excellent work!

    If the badges are similar size to last year, there's plenty of "Non-Overlap" I still have last years (i.e. my first pax) hanging by my desk, and it's got the PAX badge on top, with the Halo Badge peaking out underneath that and it still comes leaves the area just above the forum address visable.

    Haha, done. :D (Since @LexiconGrrl has roped me into assisting this year, that is!)

    Looking good so far! Feels like 19x6. The only suggestion I can make (being horribly non-artistic/design) is maybe adding something that like those fancy one piece window dressings or fabric curtains used in opera halls and such making a border around the top and down the sides of the card? In any event, totally stoked to get another one of these this Prime! Didn't get one last year, and got my one from East later in the day on Saturday, so I definitely need to go to a pre-PAX event or get to BYOC early on Friday so I can rock it all weekend.

    There's a fair bit of community logo showing. Considering that the front has stayed incredibly similar since East 2011, I think we have a fair amount of "in field testing" and as far as I know, it's incredibly visible.

    Ooo I like the design this year :) hope I can finally earn one this year too!

    I should go.

    When would we be able to pick one up? Would it be at one of the Pre-Pax events, or would it be somewhere inside PAX itself?

    Usually they're at both the pre-pax events (listed above) and inside PAX (for those of us who don't make it to the Pre-PAX events.) Last year they were up by BYOC checkin.

    Enjoy your temporary victory while you can bird brain! We won in 2010 and this year there will be TWO Alaskan sailors with a bottomless pit of a stomach for alcohol and money to burn on team Slytherin! Also, my 2012 Triwizard costume is sure to bolster our ranks with only the hardest of partiers so beware.

    What did I get? Here's a hint: It involves sports shades and polo shirts.

    Yes, shirts.

  • alegriaalegria Registered User regular
    I really like the "saloon" style on the back of the badge this year!

    I'm hoping to attend the Pre-PAX Dinner this year, but if that doesn't work out will we be able to pick them up from the BYOC desk again this year?

    I feel vindicated! I'm not the only one who saw this and thought "Saloon" rather than "Victorian era newspaper!" I am totally not crazy! (In either case, still like it.)

    I only guessed Victorian because of the wording on the bottom. ;-) But now that you mention it a Saloon theme for a future PAX badge would look good.

    Design looks great! Can't wait to get my mitts on one. (though a bit of a shame that it looks like my name wont be on there this time, after three years of being on there.)

    Is the front the same as last years? (I'm too lazy to go get mine from the other room and look).

    But I really dig the back.

    It's pretty close if not the same. Part of the reason for coming up with the heraldry was so we could use it in a repeatable fashion for stuff like this :)

  • SkeleVaderSkeleVader Dark Lord of Destruction Registered User regular
    Has anyone thought about getting lapel pins made of the heraldry?

  • Sleepy KittySleepy Kitty Registered User regular
    As always the badges look amazing and I can't wait to get one and add it to my collection

  • MelceneMelcene Tacoma, WARegistered User regular
    The heraldry on a pin is an awesome idea!

    If I may make a suggestion, since the saloon thing keeps popping up - for the font of PAX PRIME 2012, use something more like MS Word's "Old English Text" or "Algerian."

    A lapel pin might be pretty cool.

    There was a sub-design of the full heraldry made for buttoneers even :)

    So somehow I never knew about this thing at previous PAX's but I was given a forum badge at the PPD. It was much appreciated. Rawrgbargle.

    Awesome. Hope I can get ahold of one!
