Interests in ArchLinux Schwag for Europe?

Hi,
I received an ArchLinux shirt today from an european shop to test it. On my blog you will see the shirt and other informations. The topic says it all. Are there interests in Europe for such a shop, if yes we are eventually plan to open one for Europe. Please leave some comments.

Re: Interests in ArchLinux Schwag for Europe?

I'd be certainly interested, everytime I see topics about the present schwag I see Europeans complaining about the fact they have to order from overseas... I don't know how much effort it would take to set up a schwag on 'our' continent? Does it cost anything to maintain it?

Cheers

Don't be afraid about the effort or the costs. It would be free, only our free time to create a shop. smile

What really sucks about this shop is that they force you to use Adobe's flash plugin. Their site seems unusable without it.

Ok smile. I don't know what the requirements are (my skills with web building aren't the best), but if I can help I will smile.

Re: Interests in ArchLinux Schwag for Europe?

That would surely be cool. I think there are many European users anyway. Let's see if this idea becomes popular...

Re: Interests in ArchLinux Schwag for Europe?

I'm in only if :

- like with the US shop (zazzle), the Archlinux project earns money for the items bought;
- there is a possibility to create new shirts such as this one.

Re: Interests in ArchLinux Schwag for Europe?

I'd be interested too, had a look at the nice coffee mugs but seeing, that the shipping was more then the mug itself I kinda decided against buying it, not that the price was an issue rather the item / shipping cost ratio.

Re: Interests in ArchLinux Schwag for Europe?

Sounds like a fantastic idea to me.  I would definitely have a mug or shirt (most likely both) smile

Re: Interests in ArchLinux Schwag for Europe?

I would also love to see this happen. I wouldn't be buying of course, but it'd be great to reduce those overseas shipping complaints and also to see an example of how I could set up such a shop locally here in Canada. Its not much fun ordering from the US here either. ;-)

Re: Interests in ArchLinux Schwag for Europe?

I would be interested. However the shirt does not quite suit me. I'd prefer it if it had a plain back, but keeping the smaller logo on the front.

The shirt is just my creation, there will be more designs.

Ok, there seems to be interests in Schwag for Europe. Give us more time for testing and discussing. I think there will be a shop soon.

Re: Interests in ArchLinux Schwag for Europe?

I have been buying stuff from all over the world for years. As much as i understand the need for a European shop, i prefer paying in US dollars. Its much cheaper these days even with the expensive overseas shipping.
