How about Zazzle? You can make tshirts coffee mugs and a bunch of other promotional gear. They will ship it and a preditimered percentage of the profits would go back to Linux Mint. I would like a tshirt and Im certain other people would get into it. Contributers can submit desighns and whoever manages it will put the t-shirts out.

Yep, I know that page, and thanks, but I meant the official artwork you know, like the rainy wallpaper (the one you get at first when you install Gloria).

as I'm not one to use bumper stickers because they are way too permanent (ie selling the car), how about rear-window plastic static stickers?

as I have been wanting a Linux Mint branded USB memory stick for ages.
http://www.linuxmint-shop.de/ sells all those, including a branded memory stick; they contribute a percentage to the distro, I believe.

crazy idea, but some companies are now producing laptops preloaded with unbuntu, could we possibly convince them to have linux mint as an alternative. maybe "reccomended for new to linux users" or "recommended for windows users."
