Ubuntu Pc Badges For ZA

A while ago I read Free Ubuntu Stickers but sadly they weren’t on offer in South Africa and I am sure the import duties would be more expensive then getting them printed locally so I kinda gave up for a while.

Then a few weeks ago I got my Laptop. It came standard with Windows Vista Business (Is that bad link love?) any how I never relisised how annoying it was to have to look at that Vista badge thing right next to where my left hand is support to rest. I got fed up and phoned around about getting my own Powered by Ubuntu stickers printed. You can’t get 1 or 10 printed they wont even listen to you so I decided it would be a worth while adventure to get 1500 printed and share them amoung the Ubuntu-za community.

I don’t actually intend to charge for the stickers that I currently have had printed. If any one from South Africa would like to see what we can do about getting you one please put your name on the Pc Badges page

Please excuse the bad quality photos I am not a photographer and the light was bad (and my gimp skills are shocking)

  10. Those are from Martin Owen’s project, originally a Massachussets LoCo project. They’re not the same as the the system76 badges, which don’t have the same shelf life.

    ZaReason sells them in the states, not sure about South Africa.

    @jldugger:
    That is exactly where I got them from. I just couldn’t remember the site to give credit, They are very very slightly adapted. Post updated. Thanks

    They might be able to ship them to South Africa but at the current exchange rate (exuding shipping fees) they would be about 30times more expensive then the ones I got printed here….
