New Logo Arch Laptop stickers somewhere?

Hi guys!

I would like to buy some Arch Laptop stickers, but all I can find are stickers with the old logo. But I really would like to have some with the new logo!

Does anybody know a shop where i can order them?

Sorry n8schicht, I don't think there's anything official yet. You can of course, use the logo SVG files and order your own at an online sticker shop.  I'll try to get some answers regarding the Arch schwag site (and stickers) this weekend.

In the meantime, you can grab the logos here (but you probably know this already smile):

Re: New Logo Arch Laptop stickers somewhere?

Yeah, I already found the new logos in the art section. But thanks!
Printing them by myself will not give me the results I would like to achieve, i.e. having them on a plastic-like material which will be more endurable than the paper I can only print on.
Being able to order them via Arch schwag would be great!

Re: New Logo Arch Laptop stickers somewhere?

This thread might be interesting for you to read since it covers a similar request and it also deals with a solution for the problem. My guess is that it might be a bit cheaper too since http://www.linux-onlineshop.de seems to be a German online store and I am guessing that 'Südbaden' is located in German. The only not so great thing with this approach is that archlinux want gain some money for it, but if you do feel that it is necessary then you could always donate.

Re: New Logo Arch Laptop stickers somewhere?

Thanks for the links! And you are right, I am located in the south of Germany.
But the Linux-Onlineshop also only has the old Arch Logo, not the new one. I think I will just hold my horses a few more weeks and have a look at the Arch schwag because I also like the idea that our Arch guys will get some bucks and pennys by ordering from them...

Re: New Logo Arch Laptop stickers somewhere?

I am aware that they only have the old logo. In the forum thread that I linked to there was some discussion about this (for the old logo) which finally led to someone sending a image (svg) to the online store (after some email conversation with the store), this image was then used for the arch laptop sticker. This means that if you are going for this approach then you need an updated svg image and probably ask the online store. Another solution is to wait for the official schwag.

Re: New Logo Arch Laptop stickers somewhere?

Just found this thread. I sent the (old) logo to them after which they made the sticker. Its really appreciated that they made the sticker but I'm actually not really satisfied with the quality. I wanted a shiny metallic sticker (like the ones you get saying Win* capable) and what I got was a regular metallic-looking sticker. Well, I think my expectations where a little too high.

Why? All I see is a sticker with the new logo on a round "paper". I'd rather have one which looks like those rectangular metallic stickers you have on a new notebook...

Re: New Logo Arch Laptop stickers somewhere?

I just got my Thinkpad, ripped off the Windows XP sticker, and I'm ready to replace it with an Arch Linux sticker. I want a metallic one like you are talking about Sigi.

Re: New Logo Arch Laptop stickers somewhere?

n8schicht, I would be interested in getting some of that stuff too.

They are sending from overseas, right? Ontario or something? As we both live in Germany, we could order together and split the shipping if you want... smile

Re: New Logo Arch Laptop stickers somewhere?

@Stalafin: I just saw the shipping costs. Oh boy, they seem to exceed the actual costs for the items I chose! That's a bit too expensive for my taste, so far... None the less, there is another thread about the new schwag: http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=45007 It seems like a lot is going on. I will sit back for another few weeks and observe...
