Ordering Patches is easy and the memory lasts a lifetime!
ClassB understands what makes a memorable patch! We start with 100% embroidery. Choosing the colors to balance the design. Knowing when to use the different stitch types. Structure the elements in a way to invite the viewer into a scene. Add in some gradients to give depth. You have a patch that will ‘ooh and ahh’ your scouts!
Tiny text is easy for us, the ‘Pinewood Derby’ Line is only .17″ (1/6″) tall! The ‘Cub Scouts’ is only .12″ (1/8″) tall
The Cub Scout logo is only 5/8″ per side and it looks great! You can clearly see all the parts and read the tiny >1/8″ text!
Intricate Laser borders are no problem. We can do just about anything. Donut holes can sometimes cost extra, but we can do them!

ClassB Patch Story
As a scout, I had a very profound experience with patches. The memory of those experiences has formed the culture of ClassB. Within a week or two of joining my local troop we went to a camporee. That camporee was one of the defining events of my life. I can remember every detail. I remember the sense of excitement in participating in simple scout contests. I remember the sense of comradere as many of us ran down dirt trails on a ridge overlooking the camporee site. My troop built a tower that seemed unbelievably tall. Every second of that weekend was magical.
I had no idea I was going to get a patch for just being there! When I was handed that patch, I felt like I had accomplished something. Like I had been a part of a unique event in the history of the world and here was my prize. I held the patch and took it school. I told my friends. I dreamt of other events just like it. The patch to me was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen. To an eleven year old, that patch represented so much emotion, hope and excitement. I cannot help but the lucky kids get to have this kind of experience. Scouting provides those kind of opportunities.
I spend many years in scouting and was often disappointed that the patches I received for other events. Those other patches never quite lived up to the ‘magic’ of the first one. Part of this is the ‘first time’ effect. That first patch was inherently better than the patches that followed. It was colorful, had depth, and invoked a sense of drama.
At my next camporee, I had another amazing experience. It was everything the first one was. I played capture the flag for the first time with like 50 scouts, it was unbelievable! When I was handed the patch, my father tried to take my patch as it was handed out claiming “that was his patch”. No way I was letting ‘my patch” go. It was on the drive back on Sunday that I noticed something odd about my patch. Part of the square knot was missing. Keep in mind, I was only eleven: I thought I had done something wrong. We had just moved across the state, maybe this new Troop did not like me? I was embarrassed. I considered leaving scouting. Every second of that event ran thru my mind looking for the reason my patch was different than everyone else’s. All of this anguish for the tiniest production error.
To a young Scout the smallest things can take on enormous importance. As adults, we realize those things do not mean anything at all. We are now in the position to have that effect on your scouts. We do all we can to make things right so they can have more positive experiences and less ‘half-knot’ ones.
My First Camporee
By 1980’s standards, this was one awesome patch! I still have it after all these years. It is kept where I can see it in my office.
My Second Camporee
My patch is upper left, my fathers lower right. Thats a homemade button loop. It is also in my office for when someone asks if its ok to knowingly ship a defective shirt or patch.
