This all started when I was poking around online and found the “reptiles” 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!

I hope he has good turtle balance...

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.

I make these as 5×7″ certificates, letterpress-printed on super-thick Lettra card stock.

The studio where the letterpress magic happens!

Each certificate 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!

Why, yes, Virginia, I will take custom orders…

If you have an idea for a specific merit badge or brooch, I’d be happy to work with you to make it. Contact me at molly at snarkyscouts dot com.
