Linux Mint Apparel

Postby Hirogen on Fri Jun 05, 2009 1:49 am

The promotional products I'm most interested in would have to be apparel/gear including t-shirts, hoodies, usb drives etc. I already got my girl willing to wear a female mint shirt. She brags up her mint laptop any chance she gets its cute. Personally I think a polo with the linux mint leaf would be pretty sharp.

Anyway, I've purchased from cafepress for things like this in the past but they have gotten quite greedy imo. Prices have climbed SHARP recently over there and I'm currently poking around for a few places we could maybe send some designs to. I think we could stand to do some good physical promoting in this territory so we should get started atleast trying to come up with some designs.

Here's a few suppliers that came up

I am all for swag! Just one thing: I think it is absolutely essential that whoever is the provider they accept PayPal.

I prefer black T-shirts...in fact, I haven't bought anything other than a black T-shirt for several years.

Cafe Press T-shirts do not come in black. Only white.

I have some older drab green shirts I still wear. I would purchase a green LInux MInt t-shirt, come to think of it. :mrgreen:

I am always down for swag!

I know one forum I buy a lot from is GlockTalk, as they are a very good forum and I enjoy helping them out with funds!

I would suggest starting with simple shirts and hats, then if that does well move into bags for some of the netbooks, or even just offer patches to those who like do stuff themselves, like most Linux users. Stickers would be great too, I would like to put a little sticker over my "Designed for Windows" with maybe a "Mint works on anything!" one!

I must be wrong about the CafePress shirts only coming in white, since I have seen that #!CrunchBang Linux has black shirts there. Hmmm. Maybe I'm dealing with old information...again!

I was just wondering about T-shirts (because I'm not feeling geeky enough :lol: )
and I found this thread... it's best to refer to an earlier thread :
http://forum.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=16131
with a link to http://linuxmint-shop.de/

I'd be curious, if I wore such a T-shirt, to see if anyone would spot it and I wonder what the reactions would be :D

I'm totally down! Where can I sign up for a black hoodie, T-shirt, beanie, and iron-on patches of varying size? Maybe even a sticker pack that comes with both the sticker to cover up that "Designed for Windows" sticker (props on the idea Wyzer!) and a witty sticker to cover the "Windows product key" as well. :D

I also agree on this one.

One thing I also would like to buy is promotional sets, that would include at minimum a CD/DVD with Linux Mint, and a leaflet with some images, information of what Mint is, how to use the Live-CD/DVD, some nice images, which included software that can be an alternative for their (for example) IM-client, etc. Some other small stuff like keyring holder and stickers would probably also fit nicely into such sets. This would be great to hand out to friends, people at different computer expos, LAN parties, and so on.

Speaking about apparel, I would rather go with a t-shirt with that other mint leaf logo that someone in the community made a while ago and have "Linux Mint" printed somewhere else with smaller text, it looks (my personal opinion) more trendy.

LOL, thanks for sharing. I don't know if this company still do them but if you really wanted linux mint undies then you could try getting a quote from Leighmans - I quote like the idea of boxers myself.

+1 for Swag. Mark me down for a T. Prefer black, will wear white. :D

Re: that German site, is that an 'official' Linux Mint site (i.e. ~ does Clem, et.al. benefit from the proceeds)? If so, how would we get something with the same products in U.S.A. so we wouldn't get hit with the shipping?

My go-to place for custom tees is Spreadshirt. They only do wearables, not stickers, buttons, coffee cups and the such, but I love the quality of their tees. They have a lot of options for shirt color and fonts, and their service is top notch. They also ship everything within 48 hours of the order being placed so it may be something to think about.

Have you looked at Spreadshirt, kellybrook? They have some great shirts available, as well as caps, plus I've seen they've brought back non-wearables like buttons and bags. Their prices are great, they print the designs quickly, and I haven't found better customer service anywhere else.

Any thoughts on getting shirts,hats or hoodies to sell? The BBQ would be a great time to sell. I have a couple friends that own shops that I'm sure would give a good deal. If someone comes up with design I can get pricing. Moe
