OSGeo Swag Store Now Open

News Date: 
25 Aug 2006

The Visibility and Fundraising Committees are pleased to announce that OSGeo now has an online store, selling everything from our classic Black Shirts to Tote Bags to Teddy Bears, all with our distinctive and increasingly prestigious logo. And of course, all profits go to support our Foundation's activities.


This store is being run by CafePress, the same merchant service used by many other open source organizations. By using CafePress, OSGeo doesn't have to get involved in the details of ordering, credit cards, shipping, returns, etc.

Please note that these are not the same Black Shirts as we use for conference events; those have been and will continue to be supplied by Lands' End. VisCom will continue to be responsible for doing bulk-orders through them for events. The CafePress site is a fundraising venture aimed meeting individual members' needs, wants, and desires.

Also, we are in the process of setting up a PayPal site for direct donations to the Foundation. It is likely that donations above certain level will provide thank you gifts which may include a special-logo "I Support OSGeo" shirt, not otherwise available.
