The quality of the printing and paper is fantastic, as was the seller's communication. I enjoyed the note in the package about the original context for this merit badge.

About

because "twerking" is a skill worthy of a merit badge...

Like most girls in my town, I was a scout. It was cool. Badges were fun. But have you looked closely at those badges now that you're big? They're weird. They're like the precursor to web icons, but they're low-fi, and so it's really hard to tell, sometimes, what they represent. This all started when I was poking around online and found the "mammals" badge. To me, it looked like a turtle on a high wire. Why is that turtle tightrope walking? That's not safe at any speed!

As I looked around a bit more, I realized I could rewrite the narrative of many of these badges. And so the idea for Snarky Scouts was born.

These are high-quality letterpressed certificates on super-thick Lettra card stock. Each has a real, usually vintage badge glued in the center. Give these to your friends, your co-workers -- anyone with a stupid hipster life skill worth celebrating!
