I don't really know who has the most accurate, but haven't seen too many complaints about gbfans shops. Worth checking out. KATARRA8 another popular one. I ordered anovos name tags when they were onsale, was happy with them

I believe they vary in height, slightly above 2". Obviously length is probably 4.5-5ish inches depending on the name. Besides Stantz flight suit, Im not really sure about exact size of the name tags. Usually gbfans shop is a safe bet.

I took another look at my anovos name tags, they are incorrect. I Wouldn't order from them.

I will say, the Calgary GB’s recently did a run of name patches. Both very good and super easy to sew on. Some patches are thick and practically kill your fingers trying to hand stitch them on. Plus their sales go to charity I believe.

they asked for the best. Katarra's are quite inaccurate. Try not to recommend her too much.

Does anyone remember the pics of that screen used GB1 flight suit with the measuring tape photographed on the name patch? I lost the links.

Did she change her GB1 name patches? They used to be pretty good.
I know her new GB logo is modernized.

I gotta be honest, and not trying to be mean or anything, but I really don't like the calgary patches. They're just not that good.

Some people like clean look. Some people like accurate. Just depend on what you like. :)
There are other sellers as well.

I can vouch for Calgary Ghostbusters GB1 patch. Top notch reproduction!

Thanks for the link to the Calgary Ghostbusters. I live in Calgary and did not know they existed.

No I'm definitely saying that they're not very accurate.

I've purchased the Calgary Ghostbusters patch and I think it's very accurate.

Since you're so confident it's not screen accurate would you care to elaborate on its inaccuracies?

It's not 100%. I mean the fabric is wrong, but we couldn't put the actual material in machine to print patches.
We used cotton twill for name patches to get the next best thing.

Sometimes it is the best closest alternative, and in the end all mass-produced patches are not "very accurate" as they're not hand-stitched.

So we are experimenting with My girlfriend’s embroidery machine. It’s not screen accurate but cool nonetheless. Unfortunately I have no idea how to upload the pics and vids using a phone. 😕
