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.
I'd go for t-shirt, jacket, wristband, coffee/tea mug, and the mints.
they could use cafepress.com you send the design and they do all the work for you for a percentage
You can buy this stuff on other sites, but yes I would like to see the money go toward development
I like the ,linux mint shaped mints idea !!!
Defintely would love this!
This idea I really like. It would be awesome to join a LAN-party in a cool Mint T-Shirt :-p Not that I join a LAN-party. But in my thoughts I do. hehe
Best idea yet, they make a Linux Mint version of this wrist band:http://stormfly.nowcomputing.com/product.html
I would totally buy this!
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.
A coffee mug would be nice.
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.
This should be moved to implemented.
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.
