Learn About Our Project:

Cryptid Command 2 continues the ongoing series of military-themed embroidered patches featuring cryptozoological commandos patrolling land, sea and air — this time we are deploying the Chupacabra Corps, the Kraken Dive Team,and the Mothman Squadron.

Cryptid Command 2: Kraken Dive Team, Chupacabra Corps & Mothman Squadron
Cryptid Command 2: Kraken Dive Team, Chupacabra Corps & Mothman Squadron

Stationed at their headquarters at ███████ ██████ these otherworldly officers have made it their sworn duty to keep safe (and weird) the borders of the Twilight Zone. And now, you too can join the ranks and help these supernatural soldiers maintain their outpost here in the Everyday World.

The Patches

The final patches will be approximately sized:

Mothman Squadron: 3.0" H x 2.9" W

Chupacabra Corps: 2.6" H x 3.9" W

Kraken Dive Team: 3.25" H x 2.6 " W

The patches are sized to look good together as a set, and also next to the first Cryptid Command patch set. 

Lots of large photos of all the previous patches further down on the campaign page.

The Cryptid Command

The Cryptid Command: Series 2 patches join the original Cryptid Command patch set featuring Bigfoot ArmyNessie Navy and Alien Air Force patches, while also continuing the "Paranormal Forces" patch master set which includes the Bigfoot Patrol, Yeti Squad, and Sasquatch Brigade, as well as the Ghost Guard, and the NAZCA Ancient Astronauts — the Cryptid Command joins forces to bring the power of all these trans-dimensional entities together.

Please note that all of these patches (and more) will be available individually and as sets as part of the post-campaign BackerKit fulfillment process as well. However, the bundled rewards are priced lower than they will be after the campaign.

I've got a bunch more cryptid patch art worked up. As the campaign hits the additional funding goals and unlocks the additional patches, I'll be revealing the artwork here.

Help me promote the campaign, and get more patches added to your reward for free! The better this campaign does, the more patches you'll get. If your reward qualifies, of course. 

Shipping

Shipping is $4 USA, $11 Canada and $16 rest of the world.

Velcro Patch Backing

All patches are available with optional Velcro hook backing upgrades. Add $1.00 per embroidered patch to your pledge amount total to upgrade to Velcro.

* Note that you may need to adjust your pledge to cover the Velcro upgrades for stretch goal patches as they are unlocked.

Who's Behind This Campaign?

This is another artist merchandise project by George Coghill as part of an ongoing wearable art patch and merchandise series featuring creatures, cryptids, legendary beings and mysterious monsters

All aspects of the campaign — from the concepts, development, art, design, the Kickstarter campaign, and merchandise production and fulfillment, and cleaning up the studio afterwards — are all done by me (with a bit of help from friends when it comes to packing & shipping). 

Your support of the campaign is directly supporting me as an independent artist. 

I've been a life-long artist of monsters who has been dedicated to re-kindling that monster-focus as of late. These campaigns are personal art projects where I aim to fulfill the dream of the still-present 8-year-old creature fan who sent me down this path of being an artist in the first place. 

Why Do I Need Your Support?

As with any manufactured items, embroidered patches get more affordable when they are purchased in quantities of 100 or more (and the best price breaks are at quantities of 200 and 500). This campaign allows me to offer you a great deal on some original, artist-designed patches in exchange for your help in ordering these at a quantity that makes them affordable.

As an independent artist, funds are always in much shorter supply than creativity. By supporting this project, you get a set of original embroidered patches at a great price, and I get a small stash of patches to add to my portfolio, my online store and my vendor table artist's merchandise offerings.

This in turn helps me to be able to continue to create more art, and do more of these merchandise campaigns. Your campaign pledges are more than just a pre-order for some merchandise — you're directly supporting me as an independent artist in my quest to be able to devote all my time and energy into creating more artwork and developing more merchandise like this.

The funds go to manufacturing the items, any necessary art supplies, the banking and service fees for the campaign, the packing and shipping materials, as well as the postage.

The Merchandise

Below are examples of the embroidered patches from previous campaigns to give you an idea of the quality. I always source the best for every reward item and personally oversee every step of the production.

These are 100% embroidered, top-quality, professionally manufactured patches. I work closely with the manufacturing team and the art department to ensure the colors and designs are translated as ideally as possible from the original art.

And see further below for backer testimonials from previous patch campaigns to hear what backers thought of the patches.

Testimonials

Check out these backer testimonials for the previous "Bigfoot Patrol", "Yeti Squad" and "Sasquatch Brigade" and "Cryptid Command" embroidered patch and membership kit rewards from my earlier Kickstarter campaigns:

"Your attention to detail in the design, manufacturing, and packaging has exceeded any of the 70+ Kickstarter projects that I have backed over the years. My goal for your next project is to be Backer #1 (well at least in the top 20). I can't wait to share my abundance of patches/stickers with family and friends." — Mark K.

"This is one of the most awesome projects I've backed on Kickstarter. The various items are exceptionally well designed and all are very well made. I can't wait to frame the prints and get the patch seen on my backpack!" — John F.

"I received my package 10 minutes ago and it looks AMAZING! The patches are beautiful, magnets also, everything is really good made and beautiful. Thank you for excellent campaign and really really quality products. You really rock big time :)" — Iztok S.

"…I gotta say I'm very impressed by the quality and attention to detail, I posted by loot on Instagram and I had a few DM's from people asking where i got them and how can they get their own? Its pretty cool having something exclusive for the backers. Stoked for your next leg of your journey, George. Congratulations thus far." — Mike F.

"I backed the Yeti Squad patch as well as the Bigfoot Patrol patch. Both high quality items! The artist was quick to answer questions and was extremely helpful when I wanted to get extra patches for my hiking backpack as well as my friend's pack. Great quality and wonderfully unique items, I'm looking forward to hopefully more mythical creature patches by the same artist (Nessie, sirens, unicorn, phoenix, etc. )" — Danielle P.

YOU'RE THE MAN!!! THESE CAME OUT AMAZING. I have been burned by about 3 of the 5 kickstarters I have backed. NOT THIS ONE. Great turnaround time, price, and responsiveness. George over-delivered on this project to everyone's benefit. Great Kickstarter, I will be waiting on the next set. — Tyler C.

"Man those Bigfoot packages are really great. So exciting to get this today. I can't wait to give one to my buddy. He's gonna really like it. He's a huge Bigfoot buff. The badge looks even better than I thought it would. The detail is awesome." — John W.

"Received the Bigfoot Patrol kits today! Very awesome results. I'm pumped to show off my membership. Thanks!!" — Tony P.

"Hey I got the stuff! Super cool. Nice quality too. Very nice. Great work George. Just great man. Outstanding." — Scott L.

"Got mine today. Wow, they're sweet! Great job, George!" — JT

"Awesome stuff. As I thought the kids love the kit. Everything turned out awesome. Thanks!" — Todd H.

"The quality of the kit is top notch, George. The embroidered patch detail is impressive." — Jenna R.

"Just wanted to tell you I got my reward yesterday. The artwork is awesome and the patches look amazing." — Ted B.

"I was impressed with how nice the Yeti patch looked!" — Jim M.

"Fantastic art and quality. I backed the two previous kickstarters and have been extremely happy with them." — Diane S.

"I had no idea what to expect from the Yeti Squad patches, but man did they turn out sharp!! Crisp details and great quality! The thread was even above expectations. Normally you wouldn't care about some of these small details in patches purchased at a retail level. This just shows the effort and care George put into his product." — Michael M.

"All items present and correct. Everything was top quality. Really happy and looking forward to the Sasquatch Brigade. Shipping to the UK was fast too! Great job George!" — Stewart C.

"Highly detailed, quality patch. Very satisfied!" —Brad B.

"MY REWARDS ARE HERE!! They are great! The patches are fantastic. The membership cards & window clings are of much higher quality that I anticipated. I'm like a little kid on Christmas!" — Cameron J.

"...my care package from George arrived today, too! Everything is as high quality (or higher!) as you posted in the updates. Awesome! Thank you! — Stephen A.

"Awesome!!!! Just arrived today, they look fantastic!" — Mike C.

"George is an absolutely stellar creator, the product is amazing. George has been really quick in responding and incredibly friendly. I really appreciate all your work man." — Stuart D.

"You came through huge and came through in amazing time...great work!!!" — Mike G.

"Wow! Best Kickstarter project yet. Love your work here!! My nieces in Australia will love them. You've got me hooked on the next Kickstarter already! Thanks very much!!! Love it." — Jeremy P.

"The patches are even more stunning in person than I had imagined - top tier quality, George! Can't wait to put them on the backpack!" — David W.

"I can't believe how gorgeous the patches are! The silhouette ones are incredible as well...it would have been so easy to just colour-fill them, but I love that the fine embroidery is done within the patches to make it resemble a more realistic fur. I can't wait for the next release!" — Angel H.
