Hi All,

We need to get some designs done within Canonical's design guidelines,
as per the mail below. Any other feedback would be great also.

Hi Jussi,

When we first launched a huge range of Kubuntu merchandise on the
Ubuntu shop, we noticed that it was not hugely popular and we were
left with the stock sitting in our warehouse for months on end. We
still have that same Kubuntu merchandise in the sale section on the
Ubuntu shop, meaning it's been around for almost 3 years and still
hasnt sold through.

We like to turn over stock quickly. So we can look at adding some more
Kubuntu merchandise to the shop but it wont be nearly as much as
before - perhaps a few items to begin with. And the initial qty we
would order for each item would be low so potentially the cost prices
of the items will be higher than usual which means the sales price for
this items would be higher that some Ubuntu merchandise as well.

I have a shop sales review meeting next week so I can ask the question
of adding Kubuntu merchandise to the shop and see whether they are
happy to assign the budget to it.

We would most certainly need your designers to send over the designs
and these will be signed off by Marcus Haslam who is our Brand Manager
at Canonical to ensure it meets the brand guidelines.

Have you got items in mind which you would initially like to see? And
are there potentially any designs already available?
