Yes, I agree there needs to be some kerning adjustment as the W and the A are a little off as it is in the STANZ photo above, but all-n-all really nice. I'm also not sure if it is a result of how the sewing goes, but I think letters like Z and S may have corners that don't go 90 degrees, but are either angled or cut off.

Yes we used another suit.Thanks for the clarification, but... I'm actually a bit more confused than before.
But GOOD eye!
I find it amazing though really, at the several different stitch patterns.
So if you look at the cross through his belly on patch you used as reference, you'll notice it's all through our patch, circle included.
Which is how the reference patch we used was. Though as you can see on the one, its more of a buldge around edges.
When you say you used another suit, what suit are you referring to exactly? The Etsy shop mentions a "Venkman screen used patch" but I am unable to find any patch worn by Venkman that matches the YYC version.
I don't mean to sound like I'm slamming the YYC patch. I had mine delivered and while it looks great, I have been unable to find evidence to support the overwhelming praise for screen accuracy that it has been receiving. I obviously don't want to be giving an unfair review if I am referencing the wrong reference patch.
Do you have images of the patch being referenced?
Depending on your "google" skills though.
Anovos shared the same patch we used when they were first designing their patch. So someone might have that picture?
I havn't been able to find pictures of that again though.

The two original patches were the Venkman posted on the previous page, and the Stantz which Todd Cook replicated. The Calgary GB patch doesn't seem to match either of those.It does seem to resemble the Stanz version a little more, but the details are still off. I've been searching on and off today and I simply cannot find any screen used patch that has the details in the YYC version.
Without more details at this point I have to unfortunately conclude that the YYC patch simply does not live up to the claim it is screen accurate or based off a "seen in person" screen used version. I still think it is cool and I give credit to my wife for finding it, but I'm going to keep my feelings of being underwhelmed to myself as she was pretty proud of herself.
I realize this may sound a bit like a jerk thing to say, but I've seen the YYC Ghostbusters at the Calgary Expo and I'm honestly surprised they're accepting that patch as screen accurate. So many members seemed to take accuracy really seriously.
Even if we accept that they got the STANZ and the VENKMAN ones mixed up in the description, there are still many differences. Hair, eyes, nose placement, mouth size, head shape, hands, etc.
I'm not sure what is going on and it does feel like I'm wading into some kinda of history here.
I'm liking Calgary's new Stantz patch, I'll have to message Candace and order one of those to add to the ever growing collection!
Got an arm patch from him last year and really pleased with it - it's idealised with (I think) a canvas Mooglie, so not screen-accurate - but great for a franchise look which is exactly what I want.
My current name tag came from a random seller on Amazon; it's not great - font weight is too light/barely the right font etc - and I've been wanting to upgrade (plus new suit incoming ). I ordered from James again basically because of how pleased I am with his no-ghost patch and am pretty hopeful his tag will beat my current one hands-down.
There's a thread here: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=45816 comparing his no-ghost patch to some of the other popular patches, but I've not seen any examples of his tags on here - so I'll post some pics when I get them.

Also if you got my messages about combining it with the newer order of GB2 patches? Thank you.
I'm completely blown away by the difference between the two

Buy Once. Buy GBFans.com!
I did spend many(!) hours carefully peeling off the iron-on backing as I didn't want the added stiffness. In hindsight I wish I'd asked if it was possible to have it made without the backing, but I did a pretty good job removing it all and didn't damage the tag. Now it's sewn on it moves nicely with the suit, so it totally worth it as far as I'm concerned.
