Nerd-up book artists!
Vintage Merit Patches
Scouting offers many possibilities to earn merit badges, and even more-so in the past (everything from Beekeeping, to Atomic Energy, to...Bookbinding!) but some are no longer offered to the intrepid scout in search of filling a sash of esoteric skills. Graphic Arts is still offered but sadly Printing and Bookbinding were discontinued many years ago. In the spirit of the Dry Inc brand commitment to preservation of the printing and book arts, we offer these vintage Boy Scout badges without the rigorous scout requirement of actually making an effort. These make a great gift for the printing nerd in your life (you know it's really for you). Each is 1 ½" in as-new condition and come with no actual certification.
(please note, bookbinding merit badge may have green background rather than yellow as shown)
