Miskatonic University Alumni Package

Update: I'm temporarily sold out. I may have about two dozen additional sets available, but without the notebooks. I'll have a better idea on that number in a few days.


Since it's founding in the 18th century Miskatonic University has been one of the most influential and prestigious schools in the United States. It's students and faculty have traveled the globe, earning a reputation as tireless researchers and scholars without peer. Their willingness to quite literally go to the ends of the earth in their quest for knowledge has produced a body of work of unparalleled quality and depth. With that comes a sense of pride, in both the individual and collective accomplishments of the school's alumni.

We're proud to offer this collection of keepsakes in honor of that unquenchable spirit.

The Miskatonic University Alumni Package


The package includes nine items- three Miskatonic postcards, a pocket field journal, 4" embroidered patch of the University seal, 1.5" brass keychain, 4" varsity-style embroidered patch, a cloisonné lapel pin, and the "Bookworm" Mythos Merit Badge.


The keychain is 1.5" in diameter (not counting key ring) and features a mirror-polished brass and black enamel finish.


The handsome cloisonné lapel pin is 1" (2.5 cm) in diameter and would look perfect on your Miskatonic varsity jacket. It's constructed of solid brass and fired enamel with a butterfly clasp backing.


The 4" (10 cm) patch is embroidered on a tough cotton twill backing that will last for years of use, and the heat-sensitive adhesive makes it easy to iron it on to the garment of your choice.


The varsity-style embroidered patch is 4" across and has a an iron-on backing.


The "Bookworm" Mythos Merit Badge is given to those who've delved into forbidden tomes.  It's sized at the Boy Scout standard 1.5" and features an iron-on backing.

The included paper goods consist of three vintage-style postcards of Miskatonic University locations (Orne Library, Front Campus, Middle Campus)and a pocket field journal. The journal measures 3.5" by 5" (8.89 cm by 12.7 cm) and has a saddle-stitch binding, 1/4" rounded corners, a heavyweight cover, and 32 pages of high quality lined paper. All materials are 100% recycled and the cover designs are printed with environmentally friendly soy ink.

"and would look perfect on your Miskatonic varsity jacket."

That it will, as soon as I acquire one. I don't suppose that's the next project? :P

Thanks!

I was so much looking forward to this package and now there is no international shipping. Any reasons for that, aside from a higher postage fee?

Cheers,
Lorenz

@ brad yarhouse

You're very kind, and a credit to Miskatonic.

@ Aleister Crow

Gah! That's how it starts. "You know, a jacket would be pretty cool. I wonder..."

@ Brewmeister

The pleasure is all mine.

@ Lorenz Thor

If the initial run doesn't sell out the package will be available internationally.

Rob said...

And ordered.

I'm considering putting the letter on my fallout hoodie.

Here's to hoping that the initial run doesn't sell out, then... :)

Amazing job, a total must! I was already clicking to buy a set when I read this: "Unfortunately, International orders can't be accepted."
Soooooo sad!

Steve Dempsey said...

No international orders? Say it aint so!

Ah, too bad it is not available internationally, I would so liked to have one. :(

Sarah said...

I ordered as soon as I saw this -- it all looks so great! You did a fantastic job!!

Thanks a million again. I still get compliments on my expedition gear.

As the meme goes, "Shut up and take my money!"

Happy to finally have a Miskatonic lapel pin.

Absolutely fabulous!

Torn between wishing you the best of luck and wishing initial run doesn't go dry=/

I've always enjoyed your stuff, so I am in on this one as well.
Looking forward to seeing the package when it arrives.

Daniel Binz said...

Shame it all sold out domestically, we poor people outside of the US got the short end of the stick once more. :(

Sugaree said...

Please put me on the waiting list!

Tony Raven said...

How do I order? Can't see how, but I've bought everything you produced before and don't mind having duplicates. I need the keyring and merit badge! I'd rather be eaten by a shoggoth than live witout a compltet collection!!

Don Simpson said...

This is stuff I want, but I had to go away for a few days and now my chances seem faint. I am confused, though. I don't see a price anywhere, or how to order this.

Matthew Vincent said...

I've asked before, but I can never get a straight answer (or find a link in your posts)... where do you sell these things? Is it ebay or something? I understand that I am now too late (since I was away on vacation), but I'd just like to know for future reference please. This is very frustrating, as I cannot even discern that your items are sold out. Thank you.

If there is a waitlist or an "interested" list, please add me to it.
