Yep, it’s that time of year again, when we take the lazy way out and regale you with an end-of-the-year countdown lisitcle kind of thing. But let’s be honest; you’re probably too geared up for your New Year’s Eve festivities to put much effort into reading anything, so it benefits both of us.

So here we go, the top items of 2016!


  1. TerrifiCon_PawneeGoddessPawnee Goddess. For the second year in a row, a late-year surge in sales for Halloween pushed this patch to the top of our best-seller list. We made more than 100 of these patches this year!
  2. X-Files: I Want to Believe. Our longtime number one best-seller continues to do well and has a lock on the number two slot.
  3. Plague Survivor Geek Merit Badge. Another longtime top seller, which this year barely eked out its spot at number three over another Geek Merit Badge…
  4. Final Girl Geek Merit Badge. This design got a big boost after it was featured in an article online (sorry, I can’t find it again to re-post the link). It was a top ten seller last year and barely missed the number three position by one sale. Maybe next year!
  5. Though She Be But Little, She Is Fierce. Another past top ten seller making it into the top five! I’m always thrilled when someone buys a Shakespeare patch.

In the interest of efficiency, I’ll just spotlight the top items across my non-patch catalog of items.

Away Team Science Small 1The best-selling bag of 2016 is the blue Science version of our Star Trek-inspired Away Team bags. These were always the best selling bags at shows and we hope the love for them continues in 2017, our first year as a strictly online business.

Our top scarf design was the Harley Quinn-inspired harlequin scarf. Our best-selling necktie design featured the anti-demonic possession tattoo from Supernatural — which, I will note, will soon be retired as a design, so if you want to get one, go order one now! And our top embroidered bookmark was inspired by the greatest stage direction of all time, from Shakespeare’s A Winter’s Tale, “Exit, Pursued by a Bear.”

DoubleHelixSpoonflowerOur latest fabric design is now available at Spoonflower! These colorful double helixes run in a continuous stripe down the length of the fabric on a gray background. The stripes are pretty wide, to show off their geeky nature.

The fabric shown here is Spoonflower’s Basic Cotton, but the design is available in a wide variety of fabric types to meet every project’s needs.

This is our second design at Spoonflower, and we plan to build up to a solid line of fabrics as time goes on. Keep an eye out here or on our social media for more announcements!

DoubleHelixShow off your science side with this colorful double helix patch!

It’s been a while since we did a science inspired design, and we decided it was time to correct that with a bright double helix. The cool thing about it is that it lends itself perfectly to geeky stripes. Not only is it available as a patch on our website, it’s also available on striped clothing and accessories at Redbubble, and will soon be available as a striped fabric at Spoonflower.

I haven’t yet had a chance to order my Spoonflower sample and do a project with it to share with you. So until then, here is a sample image from their website of how the fabric will look.

PiThis past Monday was Pi day, so it seemed like a good week to spotlight some of our science themed products.

The obvious first choice – our Pi patch!  A favorite especially among math teachers who shop with us, it’s a simply graphic design of the Pi symbol, stitched on light blue cotton canvas.

As with all of our science-themed products, you can find this patch in both our Etsy shop, and in the Science section of our website.

TeslaTablet2Everybody knows that Nikola Tesla was awesome, and that the Tesla coils are one of the coolest pieces of science out there, at least from a purely visual perspective. This design bears a pair of Tesla coils with glow-in-the-dark lightning arcing between them on black cotton canvas.

Our Tesla Coils design is available both as a patch, and on bags in multiple sizes.

Schrodinger AliveYou know all about Schrodinger’s Cat. A cat, unobserved in a sealed box, is both alive and dead at the same time — until you open the box, and observe him, in which case he becomes merely one or the other.

So it is with this patch. Your Schrodinger’s Cat patch is alive. And it is dead. And until you open your package, you won’t know which patch you receive — until then, it exists in a state of both patches.

In other words, when you order this item, I will choose at random whether you receive a “Schrodinger’s Cat is alive” patch or a “Schrodinger’s Cat is dead” patch; you cannot specify which version you receive.

Mad ScientistWe also have a couple of science themed designs in our Geek Merit Badge line – including this Mad Scientist patch. It’s one of the first patches we created for that line, and has been consistently in our top sellers ever since. I’m always amused when I get an order for them from people who tell me they plan to wear it on their lab coat at wok!

So happy Pi Day everybody! Now go forth, and do science!

Tesla1Everybody knows that Nikola Tesla was awesome, and that the Tesla coils are one of the coolest pieces of science out there, at least from a purely visual perspective. This bag bears a pair of Tesla coils with glow-in-the-dark lightning arcing between them on black cotton canvas.
