Would you be interested in a Pins Available/Pins Wanted Embroidered Patch?

I'm trying to gauge interest in a patch for available/wanted pins based on the green/red lanyard image design from PinnyPals. See below for images of the price quote, along with the images referenced for the patches.

    Looking at what interest would be first, then figuring out how to pay for it after that. If there are only 10-20 people that want it, then it probably wouldn't be worth the effort. If more people want in, then I would go with a similar route to the funding of the challenge coin.

    What about a blue one for collected/not for trade?

    I'll be honest, I'm not too sure how these would work. If there made to point out what pins we have for trade and what ones we want like the pinny pals website I'm not too sure how that would work. The ones I have for trade, that's easy, just pin your available pins below it. Generally though, the ones that I want are ones I don't already have, so I would have no way of showing what I want. Also, these really don't mean anything outside of the pin community, a new trader at PAX would have no idea what these patches mean. I think if we are going to do a patch it should be something like the large "pinny arcade pins available here": that you see around the convention.

    In the current setup I'm going to have to agree with TheAggroCraig and vote no on these.

    I echo @Wraith90 in that I don't see how these would be used. Curious how you envision them, Hingo.

    I don't really want them for trading purposes, I just want them :P

    Also you can print out pin images and tack them to your lanyard, for pins you want. Why has no one ever done that actually? Feels like a good idea.

    This! Why not collect more silly pin things. Fingers crossed I get the pin storage books I asked for for Christmas, then I can store these in there as well as decoration or something.

    Well if the patches don't work out, I can always turn toward the buttoneering community for the same result.

    At first glance I was on board. But then I started trying to think of a use for these.

    What about making them pins instead of patches, and making a blue one instead of red? You could be saying "this green pin side of my lanyard is what I have to trade, and this blue side is my trophies".

    Just thinking out loud anyways.

    I'd actually rather have a "Pins Available" and "Collected" patch for my pin bag, just so folks know which ones are on display and which are up for trades. :)

    @Imsorad with South being as close as it is, I might just do button pins as you said. It's cheaper, and a faster turnaround, and then I can also do all 3. Patches might have to wait for a later date, if at all.

    We should just do custom made Pinny Pal lanyards.

    I would just want the pins available patch because I would put it on my pin trading bag. That way it's clear to everyone which ones I'm trading.

    I like the idea of a big-ass patch I can put on my bag or jacket (or hat) just so people can see that I have pins. Being short makes trading hard...

    This will not happen in time for South, but I'd like to keep it going for a while to see what the end consensus ends up being. The badge-style pins end up being the cheapest, whereas embroidered badges look the best but cost the most. If it ends up going with option B, then that would definitely need to be something that is crowdfunded. I've already spent my "community fund" money for this current South on a super secret project, so no buttons being made by me for this year either :-(
