TWiki Merchandise

Why

  • TWiki users want to buy t-shirts and stuff to wear.
  • Wearing such gear will help to get the TWiki message out there.

What

  • t-shirts
  • mugs
  • stickers
  • usb stick with logo and personal twiki on it
  • ...

Current Status

  • T-shirts and hoodies can be purchased from the Twiki Inc Shop, a Spreadshirt Shop.
  • Should we investigate other outlets? Perhaps one where the prices were cheaper?

Commercial Implications

  • If any money is raised by selling TWiki merchandise, where does that money go? (The current Spreadshirt shop does not generate any profits.)
  • If money were to be raised then we'd have to re-visit the idea of a TWikiFoundation.

Options

  • Spreadshirt - upload designs, create shop front, sell merchandise on-line.
  • Cafepress - generic merchandise shop, upload your logo and click what you want to sell (from underwear to mousepads to clocks)
  • Startupschwag - follow-on from Valley Schwag (which folded). Sort of a T-shirt of the month thing; pay $15 a month and get mailed the latest cool schwag from startups, instead of having to go to conferences and collect it for "free". You just give them a license to your logo (for free) and if you are hot, people grab stuff with your name all over it.
  • I (CC) really like this guy's style http://www.tysemaka.com/ for some TWiki artwork. Break the mould! Out with boring artwork!

Discussion

Just some quick notes to start the topic. Feel free to modify..

Would awesome if those USB Sticks just work right off, and/or with very minimal and simple configuration. Similar to Linux live-cds, those are awesome.

Competing with the current design of the spreadshirt shirt:

I like that shirt design a lot!

-- MartinSeibert - 11 Feb 2008

Due to my white and pastey complexion, I don't wear black - any colours?

-- SvenDowideit - 12 Feb 2008

I guess the shirt works on white too...

Do we need 'twiki.org' somewhere on the shirt?

Are there any hi-res versions of the used images i can download, i might pop down to the local copy shop to make a prototype i can wear to fosdem smile

Hm, let's have some slogans and fun with t-shirts.

Front:

  • Caution, TWiki coming your way
  • TWiki: online collaboration can be that sexy
  • I :heart: TWiki
  • TWiki: more than just decent t-shirts.
  • This body is TWiki certified.
  • TWiki inside.
  • TWo good reasons for TWiki. wink
  • TWiki Applications in pure flesh.
  • TWiki: it can be that easy.
  • TWiki teamworks (this is my t-shirt)

Rear:

  • Catch up with TWiki.
  • Get your own TWiki on the backend.
  • Watch my frontend. It's all TWiki.
  • Seen my ass? Now watch my TWiki!
  • Talk to me. This is TWiki.

Just a comment on the process. What does it take to get good decisions on these things? We start with fresh ideas, good feedback, and we end up with unfinished designs.

I like the t-shirt ideas, but I'd also like some slightly more formal options, like a golf shirt or polo shirt - something I could wear while consulting or training or presenting at a conference.

Basic logo would be fine.

-- ClifKussmaul - 28 May 2008

I just ordered a polo shirt with the default TWiki logo from CafePress.

It looks like there are multiple companies offering custom embroidery at reasonable prices with no minimum order. If I investigate some options and choose one, can I start selling TWiki Merchandise? Are there copyright issues or approval processes?

-- ClifKussmaul - 08 Jun 2008

The CafePress polo shirt with a printed TWiki logo arrived and looks nice. $22 including shipping. Embroidery looks (and lasts) better - I will look into options. Is anyone interested in this?

-- ClifKussmaul - 16 Jun 2008

What about some TWiki Pirates in the green? wink
