I salute Purism’s decision of not “labeling” their products with logos though some people may want to carry openly the brand with proud and this is where some High Quality stickers will come in handy. Maybe a pack of 8 - 12 stickers, featuring “Purism”, “PureOS”, “Librem” and so on?
Just like how we select a product build, like RAM or Keyboard layout, we could select if we want the stickers or not (by default: no, since that’s the current setup).
Any thoughts on this?
The other day I drove behind a car which had two Apple stickers neatly aligned left and right of the license plate. I wondered how one could possibly care enouhg to buy two stickers of their favourite brand just to ruin a perfectly nice-looking upper-class car… Then it appeared to me that the stickers might have come for “free” with all the Apple stuff he owns…
Definitely a good way to rise awareness without forcing people to have the logo on the devices!
Apple stickers were definitely included in the products from the iPod era.
+1 on that, I’d love to have a few stickers
I really wish that we could make an option to have a huge prominent Purism logo on the back of our laptop beautifually etched onto the chassis. I would love to proudly display such a logo. I understand the reasons for not including but I still want it . . .
+1 for stickers in the meantime.
I’d go even further and suggest more options for us to choose from, like:
plain logos in different sizes and designs
logos with tag lines in different sizes and designs
mixed and in different sizes and designs
or even better, have all the logo types listed with some details (such as size + a thumbnail) so we could pick individually
If anyone is going to create stickers, I recommend laser cut vinyl decals. It’s not hard to apply, looks awesome, and is really durable.
A bit of necrobumping here, as there was no feedback from Purism staff
There seems to be a general demand for branding material. More generally, there seems to be a demand for pride-displaying and awareness spreading material.
I would love to have a minimalistic Purism wallpaper, a pile of stickers (mostly to stick on gear, vandalism is bad press) or more generally a “media kit”. This would not exactly be a press kit, rather the .svg copyleft material.
@jeff this is probably your domain! Do you have material branding (stickers) down the pipe at the moment? Is there a place where copyleft stuff is available for people to participate in branding?
The “exportation hub” at one of the local libraries has a vinyl l cutter and I have been thinking about getting some tiff or sgl outlies and making a custom sticker set for my “travel laptop”. heck I even have a mental design in my mind to use if I ever have the money to buy one of these systems. and yes it does involve a nice GNU in center.
