Foursquare Nerd Merit Badges!!!

I *love* how these badges turned out. This is how they come from the embroiderer, stuck back-to-back like oreos.


I especially like the color combinations that Foursquare's designer Mari Sheibley put together. Trying to match those intense tones in thread was a challenge, but after lots of squinting at a thread card, I think we got it.


These are prototypes; I haven't yet talked to Dennis Crowley or the Foursquare folks about if, when, or how, these would actually be made available. I'll update this page here when I know. If you'd like to see other badges made (douchebag?) you can comment here.
