In the IRC we just came up with the idea of having stickers for the members of our glorious community. That would also renew the discussion about a logo of the forum/website/unixporn-page. The question now is, if anyone would be interested as well, b/c then we could make up some kind of group buy, whereas we could else buy and print them on redbubble.com.

Any opinions, contributions and sarcastical remarks about it belong here

EDIT (by venam):

This is the link to the final sticker choice if you want to print it:

So design wise, I think it'd be cool to have a little square of the asterisk used for the favicon. We could perhaps have '#nixers' written underneath in a nice font.

My only issue is that sometimes shipping on things like this is way more than the cost of the actual product itself, but as I said on irc I'd happily pay around £3 for a single sticker.

If we could get it sorted sooner rather than later as well, because I change address in a few weeks so it'd suck if it got delivered after I'd moved :P

I would definitely buy a sticker.
For the logo I'll consider the current star with "nixers.net" in a small font written under it.

Please, don't write "#nixers" on it. Just the star. I don't want people to ask me to explain what this "hashtag" means...

However, I think having the websites name on it would be nice. Like I said, written very small at the bottom.

You know the connotation of '#' with a hashtag never crossed my mind as I wrote that, haha. I do think the URL would be nice.

I'm not a fan of the font either.
I like the ones you posted.

I feel we certainly need a monospace font style although not the one in venam's post, with a more block-y icon, but that's just like, my opinion man.

I'd be happy with just the star. Keep It Simple, Slick

I'm a fan of venam's design as well, but agree with Wildefyr it should use a slightly different font.

I also agree, it was just a mockup.

What do you think if we had a sticker with transparent background with the star and another one with the name of the forums.
So two separate stickers, like that those that don't want to show the name of the forums can only get the star.

I'd get both!!

On what designs do we agree on?
What platform are we going to use to print/ship them?
How much will it cost on average with the shipping?

I think stickermule.com has cheap prices for small stickers. Stickerobot.com sounded alright but 1x1 stickers are the same price as 2x2, where as stickermule's is cheaper.

I stand for stickermule.com.
The website doesn't ship individual or small numbers of stickers, we have to at least buy 50, which would cost around $1.14 per sticker, with 20 people this will cost $2.5 for everyone (2 stickers). With the shipping added it would cost a maximum of $4.
To handle this situation one of our member will have to volunteer to buy the stickers for us and ship them to all the addresses.
I think we won't have any problem on the trusting part but who's going to volunteer to do the whole process.

What are your opinion?
Also, do you have any new idea about the design of the sticker?

I can volunteer, if that's an idea. USPS makes it easy to send bulk mail, and getting it to Europe, and in your case Lebanon, would be fairly easy.

We could also upload the design to redbubble.com. Then everyone who wants to get a sticker can order it individually. The prices would be about $1.5 - $2.5 I guess. Anyways, I already got some stickers from them and I am fairly pleased with the quality, at least if you think about the prices. They all are pretty thick and if you use them heavily (I put one where my hand lays on my laptop), they will lose there color intensity pretty quick. I gotta check the other websites and will talk then again.

Seems like it would be cheaper to buy them individually from redbubble.com.
Can you upload one of the design so we get a fair idea of what they'll be like.

A sticker would cost €1.64 each, but I am not quite sure if we should really do that because printing stickers there is not really individually and we would not get any feedback on the quality and if scaling of the image is correct etc. I guess it is not possible to submit vector graphics either.

i've used redbubble many times before. the quality is very nice. but the stickers are small. even if it's a single large graphic.

We still didn't decide about a design for the sticker.
Let's get this over with!
I'll buy all the stickers myself from stickermule.com and vypr will distribute them.
It's my gift to the community.

If you still want to buy them back from us it'll be considered as a donation to keep the servers running.

10/10 I would put them on my mini fridge all day.
As for as a design, I think penguin devil with a OX tail would be cool.

I'd go for either just the star with a white margin around it or I would favor the design venam brought up (the start with the monospace font). If I had a choice, I could not decide between them.
