Idea:

I wouldn't mind being able to buy a coffee mug or wrist band to support Linux Mint. All profit would be able to go to the development of the distro. Would anyone else buy anything?

Rings, t-shirts, jackets, wristbands, stickers (for car, cell and desktop), coffee mugs, tea cups (yes!), mints (excellent idea), watches, clocks, calendars, magnets, mouse pads, pillow covers, etc, etc, etc.

Maybe the developers could set up a cafepress page or something similar and, like already suggested, put the profits towards development.

Best idea yet, they make a Linux Mint version of this wrist band:http://stormfly.nowcomputing.com/product.html
I would totally buy this!

A.......Mint!
No, but seriously, packets or boxes of Linux Mint shaped mints and the flavors would depend on the edition, such as KDE, XFCE, MATE and Cinnamon!

I'd love to get a wristband, or a T-Shirt. Maybe even some kind of hat. Heck, even a mousepad would be cool.

You could buy some nice laptop / desktop stickers from Librestickers.com and 0.10€ of the sticker price is donated back to the project. I checked Linuxmint site donor page and could see contribution from librestickers.

would be nice if it would be global, not like some merchandise stores that only sells in usa or europe areas.

They can also try zazzle.com for mech selling. As I know, all they have to do is to create the "official" designs. And is the people want one - they'll make it. :)

As there doesn't seem to be much official merch someone else is selling stuff and getting the money, at least in germany - don't know if any of the money is flowing back to Linux Mint at all.

This idea is popular obviously and although production costs would obviously be a consideration, that is something only the Mint team can decide, and I think they should, particularly in the light of offers such as that from FewClues.

Marked accordingly.

Linux Mint polo/ golf shirts and tee shirts are at Hellotux.com. The quality is great and has a quick delivery.

I would love a set of Linux Mint mugs, Linux Mint golf shirt etc. I teach Linux Mint to senior citizens and would love to get them all into shirts and mugs. The shirts out there are $33. Unless they are sending $15 to Mint I'm not interested. If people who claim to send proceeds to Mint would put the amount being sent it would be easier to swallow those prices.

If we have free access to the art work I can have quality golf shirts produced for $18 each in quantity of 24.

I'm really wanting a Mint embroidered baseball cap, either black cap & green logo or beige cap & green logo. I'd be willing to throw 20 - 30 dollars at it, especially if it can guarantee money to go to Mint.

Think Geek site would certainly be the vehicle to get them to develop and make any Linux merchandise. They already have a Tux cap, polo shirt, and plushie. We just need to convince them to embose a few things with the Linux Mint logo.

I would love to get a Linux Mint T-shirt, but the only place that sells any wants $33 US (an arm and a leg imo)......

Never paid more than $15 for a T-shirt in my life.

Make the MP-3 player able to play WMA and OGG formats and we'll be having a Linux Mint media player that would be compatible for all O/S

Great idea! Some small, high quality Linux Mint stickers would be awesome. That way I could stick them on the super button of my Dell keyboard, to cover up the Windoze logo. ;)

technologychick
Yeah, a mouse pad, specialised hardware (MP3 Player would be good) because of the great bundle of codec and media packages that are available for Mint.

Yes they are very nice polos. Have got one and is a great quality and good size.

i'm not sure that everybody has seen this:
according to the LinuxMint-blog, at hellotux.com you can get the official LinuxMint-shirts and -polos ($5 will be donated)!

and there was also a post on the LinuxMint-facebookpage some time ago with nice stickers and various shirts (also with tux, debian and ubuntu)!

LMDE merchandise too please. I would buy tee's, sweats or mugs

Get the Linux Mint baseball cap to glow whenever it detects a Wi-Fi connection.
Maybe a Linux Mint branded USB stick that glows whenever it detects a computer that has Linux Mint installed.

Sure, I'll take a Baseball cap and a coffee mug and I better have a cropped tank top for the girlfriend.

Yes, I've been looking for a Linux Mint baseball cap. I would also love to see the profit go to the developers instead of some printing press. This would be an awesome way to support the project and spread the word! Everyone loves merch! :-)

I think Cafe Press is the best option. One can get Mint and Linux merchandise but Mint is not getting any benefit. They also have Groups which allow communities to get merchandise in bulk with free shipping. Now is really the time for something like this.

I'd love to buy Linux Mint (official) merch. loseph's polo suggestion's pretty cool. Tee's are a definite. Maybe case badges. I'd buy those. Bumper stickers. Cell phone covers. Cookware?

A baseball cap would be good, but something other than a generic black cap. Tee shirts would be ideal but design does need to come into it somewhere look at Fat Face or White Stuff for inspiration.

I'd would love to support mint with the purchase of a Tee.

question is... Linux Mint chewing gum - what *kind* of mint would it be?

lol :)

I'd totally buy a T-shirt. Or 2. I'm a T-shirt fanatic, I got many T-shirts of bands I like, of some proverbs I like and of course of my favourite programming language.

Coffee mug, well if it helps ;-)

Humm, Nice idea, but the cost of everything will depend on how many people want to buy minty T-Shirts and LiveUSBs with the LinuxMint logo on them. btw: Wiggy25 you really should include a link, http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=163&t=63344

I have posted a topic in the forum about pre-printed USB memory sticks if anybody is interested.

Linux mint logo necklace that is also a USB flash drive. It could also come with a LIVE CD on it.

CafePress can do Mugs, caps, t-shirts and all that stuff. All we need are the logos, and they're easy to find.

wouldn't mind a mug! Official merchandise would be a wonderful idea.

It could generate new income for Mint team and offer us a nice chance to help promote Linux in general public.
I would like to have some t-shirts or sweater with elegant Mint logo and writing: Goodbye Windows!
Of course,first we would have to see with users if there is sufficient demand and if somebody can offer help to Mint team in this endeavor.After all they are computer people,not business people.

agree,.! because: (1) linux-mint lovers community would want to have an item or souvenir which was a symbol of linux-mint / mark / stamp linux-mint (2) can to be able to get funds / money for the advancement and glory distro linux-mint.
(3) with the items of Merchandise will further promote linux-mint, and linux-mint will be more popular & friendly & familiar.

Great idea. I know I can get mint stuff from places like zazzle, but to be able to buy genuine merchandise and have the monies raised go back in to Mint development would be fantastic.

if there's lmde stuff too I'd take a mug or a t-shirt :)

Could use community artwork for some merchandise if it was "hired out." (Like cafe press or a similar outfit.) Otherwise Mint Logo on everything! A collared professional looking shirt with a Mint logo would sure reinforce the image of elegance.

mintFan: A new tool to select from some art works and printing them onto a medium of your choice.

It would be nice to have central point for merch and knowing that linuxmint.com has another source for making some cents, everyone knows that you can go to some copy shop and have your individual item.

A cafe press site would be sufficient at least to just get something out there.

Yap that would be a good 1 because not only you can help in developing new distro of linux mint but you also help in promotion and advertisement. That is definitely awesome.

I would like a tshirt. but knuckles is right, the distribution chain would be difficult to set up. not impossible... http://somafm.com/tshirts/ is perhaps one way to go about it.

Problem is the Production coast of such thinks are not so big, but from where sell it? Depend on the place you live the transport coast will be higher the the Merchandise itself.

Hi there, somewhat new to the distro (and brand new to the community page!) but I absolutely think this would be a great idea.

Mint green rubber bracelets would be very cool, I think.
