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?

This has probably been mentioned sometime before but due to the wording I can't find a topic anywhere in the forums about it (atleast that I can see) but what about the possibility of Linux Mint , Mints :mrgreen: I'm sure there is companies out there who would produce such a thing per order (e.g You could order them via the website and the company makes enough to fill each order) alot of brands have their own "brand" mints. :)

Hi there,

This is my first message on the forum and first Promotional Material submission.

Anyway, it's a sticker based on "hello, my name is", related to Linux Mint User.

If you like it (at least the idea), I can make more (Contributor, etc) or improve this one.

Cheers,

E. Perez

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."

I'll be starting an advertising / distribution company. LinuxMint will be advertised for free in all publications for life.
