The Squadron side just seems a little off to me. Melissa, can we get them to tweak it a bit so it's truer to the original image?

I would suggest sending them a vector version of both logos. This will allow them to reproduce them in the highest quality, and also allows the colors to stay clear and sharp.

I don't think we have a vector version of the Squadron logo. I think there's one of the Base logo somewhere though.

Get with Justin Monk, he can usually convert them over to vector within a day or two.

I might be of some help with your coin. I recently designed a coin for my Army unit, which is in the process of being made (The Army takes coins very seriously!). I have a great contact and a bit of info in this area, so where alot of you have helped me with my costume, I will gladly help you out with your coin!
Just remeber, most coin producers will have a dye fee (around $100.00 depending on the company), and minimum order (usually about 150) average coin cost is usually abot 3.50-4.50 per coin. They will also usually require an "Adobe" file to transfer the image. I apologize if you have already discussed any of this info. If you would like my coin contact info, please PM me (I dont think we are supposed to put stuff like that up here, right?) and i will give you the info!

Boys, You sure want a lot on a little coin. I think it has a lot of detail and the colors look great.

I agree that the Central Base logo looks good, but all the black is missing, there is no blue around the cockpit, the red is missing from the wings of the X-wing, and if you really want me to keep going I will.
I hadnt recieved anything asking for approval on this item through merch yet, so now that I have seen it, I will critique.
I just think that the company can do better, and I am sure with a better version of the Taun Taun logo, they will get it right. Until that point I say send it back.

Having done the KJO coin through this company, I know they can do better. I really think this proof was due to the quality graphic sent to them. Once you can send them the vector version, you should get back a much better proof.

Well the 2 things that jump out at me:

1: The Taun-taun is still too dark compared to the logo. I don't see why they can't use a lighter shade of gray for it.

2: The proof does not have the blue outline around the canopy like the logo has. This one is just my ocd coming out.

I really do think you guys can get the taun-taun in a lighter shade to better match the actual logo.
