Patchion Sponsorship

Recently, I started another project, Bitcoin Merit Badge. It’s a place to buy velcro patches that show off Bitcoin culture. But if you’re looking for something beyond just Bitcoin patches, check out the great team at Patchion. Patchion is who we use for the high quality embroidered patches we sell at Bitcoin Merit Badge, but they can make just about any kind of patch you can imagine.

They make patches of all shapes and sizes and several different backings, including hook and loop (velcro), iron-on, adhesive and more. Whether you’re looking for a motorcycle patch, or a patch for your sports team. Maybe just a fun patch of a meme for your own collection.

Patchion also offers worldwide shipping, so it doesn’t matter where you live, they can get your patches to you.

Finally, and possibly the most important reason that we went with Patchion, is that Patchion has been interested in Bitcoin and accepting Bitcoin payments for several years now. They even offer a discount if you pay in Bitcoin (or a few other cryptocurrencies). We felt it was important to go with a company that shared our belief in the future of Bitcoin and allow us to close the loop on both accepting payment for our product and buying our supplies and services in Bitcoin.

To learn more, visit Patchion today, and tell them Josh sent you.
