Ordering Multiple Patches


I have made some adjustments to the shipping options. Due to major increases in USPS First Class international rates, international customers have the ability to choose non-tracked shipping to bring their cost down. The option for tracked is still available at the new, higher rate. (First class USPS package with tracking to Europe is now $15)

I will still have to manually refund you for combined shipping when you place an order with multple items.

SpaceX launched Starship Heavy Integrated Flight Test 4 on June 6, 2024 to great success. The flight met every milestone for the mission: hot stage ring separation, booster soft-landing on water, and Starship reentry survival (also with a soft-landing). Initially I designed the patch to highlight the booster soft-landing. After watching the launch, the clear universal highlight was "The Little Flap That Could": the incredibly resilient forward flap that still performed it's tasks despite the substantial damage due to thermal tile loss on re-entry. I decided to go with the original design as this was the original major milestone of this flight test, as it paves the way to actual booster capture and recovery at the launch tower. The patch depicts Booster 11's steamy water landing while Starship 29 continues its flight downrange (there's some artistic license here).

The patch will be 4 inches tall and delivery is expected mid-July 2024.
