  • Design/Text Changes -Word Swaps are free! You may change the text and date on any awards. Just add your changes to the shopping cart. Remember less is more when adding text to pins and patches. Keep words to a minimum and use appreviations when possible for the best looking designs. Use the year only for a date, it looks better and is helpful if an event is postponed. The more text, the smaller the font. We CANNOT use the trademarked words Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts (or any logos) without a release from GSUSA or BSA. Unless the change is only a date, you will be emailed a proof for approval before we start your order. Please watch for this email as your order will not begin processing until we have your approval. if you have not heard back in 2 business days, please contact us after checking your junk mail folder, as our email may be blocked.
