After some fiddling around, I’ve managed to fit Amos’ season one patch art onto a set of vinyl stickers at RedBubble. In order to get these as close to actual size as possible, you must order the “Large” (8 x 8.5 inches) sticker. Note that these will have a white border, and that in season 2, Amos has added a P&K patch to his jumpsuit, so these will not work for that costume.
Here’s the short version: These are vinyl stickers. They are designed to be a stopgap solution, until such time as I figure out how the hell the patches on the show were made, if ever.
What: Orange on white vinyl, self-adhesive, glossy stickers, approximately the same size as the Beratnas chest patches, as best as I can estimate. I’ve tried to scale these based on the known height of Wes Chatham. There is a small amount of uncertainty involved, given the available images. Size is 9.5 x 9.3 centimeters, 3.75 x 3.7 inches, approximately.
When: Available now!
Why: I wanted to provide some kind of temporary solution to the folks asking for patches. Again, this is a stopgap measure, until such time as more accurate patches can be made. These are not made nor intended to last forever. Ideally, you would stick this on a jumpsuit and wear it for a day or two at a con or for Halloween or whatever.
How: Professionally spot-color screen printed (not done by me on my desktop inkjet or anything cheap like that). Vector art by me, based on HD screencaps & promo images.
1 sticker = $7.50 United States Dollars, which includes shipping within the US.
2 stickers = $14.50 US, which includes shipping within the US.
3 stickers = $21.00 US, which includes shipping within the US.
4 stickers = $27.50 US, which includes shipping within the US.
5 or more = What are you doing, equipping an army? Email me, we’ll talk.
Now available on eBay, should you prefer their buyer protections or wish to make me an offer:
PayPal me at firstname.lastname@example.org, say it’s for the Beratnas stickers, say how many, and mark it as Payment for Goods or Services. Be sure to include a valid mailing address. These will not be sent insured, nor tracked. If you want to spring for the additional $6.45 cost for domestic Priority Mail, for insurance and tracking, just add it on to your PayPal payment. I am investigating the costs & customs requirements of shipping to Canada, the UK, etc.
International Sales: Not at this time, I’m sorry.
Please Note: These are not die-cut. You must trim these. Die-cutting would have doubled the cost of the stickers. They have six straight cuts, which you should be able to make with an X-acto knife and a metal straightedge. Use a clean, sharp, new blade and practice cutting first. Additionally, they are clean, new, glossy and bright. You may want to weather them. I advise you to exercise caution when doing so. Test your paint or whatever on one of the blank white areas first. It may not adhere to the vinyl.
This belter has at least three patches on his suit:
- Centauri, identical to Amos’s patch
- Narcissus, similar to Amos’s but with a flat bottom, possibly larger
- Eros, a tall, hard-to-read patch
Additionally, he is carrying two flashlights: the FoxFury “Scout Tasker” (Fire or Safety model, unclear which), and the FoxFury Breakthrough BT2 in yellow.
Wikipedia tells me the adjectival form of Eros is “Erotian.”

Based on uniforms seen in Episode 6:
Four new shirt designs up on TeePublic:
One for the Canterbury herself, one for P&K in general, one for Cere Beer, and one of Amos Burton’s jumpsuit patches (Centauri).
In the interests of full disclosure, I must state that I did take some artistic and poetic license in recreating the Cere Beer label; my source screencaps, though HD, are still small and grainy. The Ceres circular logo and “CERE BEER” are quite accurate, but I did have to make-up the subtler details necessary to finish the design. LMK if the novels give any hard dates for the colonization of Ceres, etc.
