Sell out with me, oh yeah...  
Recently I was asked if I have prints of any of the Beanielanteans, and it got me thinking - would folks be interested in prints of them? What about other goodies - like t-shirts or stickers? I don't have the capital to set up anything fancy, so I'm looking at options like CafePress or DeviantArt Prints for a supply-on-demand kind of deal. 

There are pros and cons for each option: DeviantArt prints have a much lower base price, and more options (like matte/gloss/lustre, and a vast choice of sizes), but they charge a AUD$30 setup fee, so it would only be an option if enough people were interested in getting prints. CafePress is free to set up, and has a wider variety of merchandise to choose from (such as shirts and stickers), but they don't have many options for prints, and their base prices are fairly high. I'm not in this to make money, that's for sure (anyway, the whole "derivative works" copyright deal takes care of any ideas in that direction lol), but I thought I'd see if there was any interest in these sort of goodies. .. so tell me:

Poll #814273 Consumerist Scum!

Would you be interested in any of the following?

Other merchandise (mugs, bags, stickers etc)
I covet not material goods.
Obligatory tickybox!

If it turns out only a few people are interested in prints I'd be happy to just run some off on quality stock at Kinkos and post them out :)

[EDIT: If there are specific images you'd like to see done, please drop a line in the comments - preferably with the format you'd most like to see it in (ie print, shirt, sticker etc) - and let me know :)]

In arty news - still working on one largish image. It's taking a lot longer than I thought it would to get right *pout*

A beanie!McShep coffee mug for work - might actually motivate me to drink something and not get a headache from dehydration. ;)

The "beanie-pile" would look adorable wrapped around a coffee mug. As would Zelenka.

You know, I was thinking that very same thing the other day... as I wrote my fanletter to Chuck telling him how 'inspiring' his character was ;)
I would definitely like a print or mug of Chuck-beanie, and I bet Chuck would, too :D
