Learn About Our Project:

Hallows Angels

The Hallows Angels is an embroidered patch set celebrating the classic colors and creatures of Halloween. Inspired by outlaw motorcycle gang patches as well as vintage Halloween decorations, these Halloween "haunter gangs" descend upon your town each October for their annual "haunter's rally" to raise some Halloween. And of course, these haunter gangs needed their club patches!

The classic colors and characters of Halloween: jack-o-lantern, skull, witch and black cats.
The classic colors and characters of Halloween: jack-o-lantern, skull, witch and black cats.

Supernatural Sturgis

Like a Sturgis rally for the supernatural, Halloween brings these gangs of haunters — jack-o-lanterns, skeletons, witches and black cats — to your town for 31 days of mischief and mayhem. And what would Halloween be without scarecrows, bats, owls and spiders — as well as other denizens of Autumn? As the campaign unlocks more Samhain stretch goals, the full lineup of this Haunter's Rally will be unleashed from the crypt and you'll get even more patches and merchandise with your qualifying pledge.

HFFH

Your pledge earns you your "colors" (club patches) in all the Haunter's Clubs in the Hallows Angels — the Stingy Jacks, the Skeleton CrewBlack Magic and Double Trouble

You also get exclusive membership in the secret Thirty-Firster organization. As a patch-carrying Thirty-Firster, you vow to keep Halloween haunted. It's a holiday that becomes more sanitized and commercialized every year. The Hallows Angels and the Thirty-Firsters never forget the creeps, ghouls and goblins that made this night what it really is. 

Halloween Forever, Forever Halloween.

Rewards

*** Patch Sizing Note: One thing that needs to be clear is that while these patch designs are inspired by the large back patches on jackets, the patches will not be large back patches! These patches will be approximately 4" wide x 4.75" tall.***

The main reward package is the 4-pack of the Hallows Angels patches: Stingy Jacks, Skeleton Crew, Black Magic and Double Trouble. All patches can be upgraded to Velcro hook backing for a small additional fee. 

There are also 31 limited edition sets available. 13 of those are standalone limited edition sets, 13 also include a color sketch card (original art), and the last 5 in the set are reserved for the 8" x 10" original art rewards

Backers new to my campaigns can grab rewards that include the patch sets from my previous campaigns. And of course, there's a reward to pick up all the patches to date. 

Any pledge that includes the main patch 4-pack qualifies you to receive any bonus stretch goal items unlocked during the campaign. 

Stretch Goal Items

*** Stretch goals #1 & #2: UNLOCKED! ***

Bonus patches, the scarecrow-themed "Sons Of Samhain" and the owl-themed "Night Watch", will be added to all qualifying pledges — FREE

"Sons Of Samhain" and "Night Watch" stretch goal patches — unlocked!
"Sons Of Samhain" and "Night Watch" stretch goal patches — unlocked!

As always, my campaigns offer generous stretch goal items if the campaign exceeds the core funding amount. If you pledge for any reward that includes the main patch 4-pack, you qualify to receive stretch goal reward items.

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! George 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.

"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.

"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.

Future Patches, Kits & Campaigns

You better believe I've got more paranormal patch campaigns in the works: more cryptids (Mothman, Chupacabra and the Kraken). Cthulhu. Conspiracy theories. Secret societies. As well as unicorns, fairies and mermaids… and lots more Halloween-themed projects in the works for future Samhains.
