We’ve been thinking about setting up a shop for Sunbird/Lightning merchandising stuff (t-shirts, coffee mugs, etc.), to give people the chance to show their appreciation for our products.
But before we do that, there’s the question, whether anybody would be interested in buying such stuff.
We would probably go for a cafepress shop, because they have pretty decent shipping costs for US and international customers and a bigger variety of non-T-shirt stuff we could offer.
So do you think that this is a good idea? Would you buy a cool Sunbird t-shirt or a blazing Lightning coffee mug?
If yes, would you mind, if we try to make some small money from it or do you want the shop to be non-profit? That money could be used for a whole lot of stuff, like
- buying a present for the most active tester on a QA testday
- bug bounties
- travel expenses for developers
- free beer on the yearly developer face-to-face meeting :-))
- hiring a developer full-time (in case we make a lot of money)
We would be really interested in hearing your thoughts.
