About Monsterologist

Sales 15,105
On Etsy since 2011

Cryptid creator and paranormal patch purveyor.

The vision for my shop is to offer fun monster, creature, cryptid and paranormal-themed merchandise that I'd buy myself. I am always the first fan of all the items I list here, and it seems to resonate with my customers.

The magic happens at my home studio, where I develop, create and assemble all the artist merchandise for sale in my Etsy shop. I'm always working on new concepts, sketches, ideas, designs and art.

My shop launched in 2014 with the release of my initial merchandise set, the "Bigfoot Patrol Membership Kit", soon followed by the Yeti Squad and Sasquatch Brigade. I am constantly either running, planning or fulfilling a Kickstarter campaign where I am able to get the initial production runs created for all the shop items.

I share in-depth progress on the creation of everything in my email newsletter (along with exclusive art sneak peeks and my best Etsy coupon codes) and on my Patreon account. I'm also active on social media with regular sketches, art, drawings and more.

Frequently asked questions
What is "hook and loop" patch backing?

Hook-and-loop backed patches have the "hook" side of the hook-and-loop fastener system sewn on to the back of the patch, and many tactical backpacks, some standard backpacks, and many military uniforms have a patch of the opposite "loop" material sewn on so one can swap out patches on their gear.

Of course, some people just pick up some loop material from the craft store so they can add a hook-and-loop-ready spot to any piece of gear or clothing.

With an area of "loop" fabric on your gear/clothing, and some hook-backed patches, you can swap out patches on your stuff as you desire.

Iron-on Patch Instructions

Make sure your garment is clean & freshly laundered (including new items).
Set your iron to "COTTON" at 400 degrees, and let it warm up for five minutes.
Thoroughly iron the area of the garment where the patch will be placed.
Place patch on garment, embroidery facing up.
Place a cloth or light towel over the patch, and using a slow circular motion, press the iron firmly for 30 seconds over the patch.
Next, turn the garment inside out, and iron the back of the patch for 30 seconds using the same slow circular motion.
Let everything cool down for one minute. If edge of patch can be lifted, repeat step 6.

*Do NOT use on fabrics that are not iron-able (fabrics that have a low melting point) such as nylons, vinyls, or leathers.

I want to sew on a patch. Which patch backing should I buy?

Iron-on patches can be sewn on, in addition to being able to iron them on.
