The problem is not the Cost involved or the time but the 6 months
release cycle of Ubuntu that makes a shipped CD becomes obsolete pretty
fast unless it is a LTS release. Secondly, punching CDs locally is much
cheaper and faster than shipit. It also encourages local resources to
become aware of Ubuntu and GNU/Linux.

Am afraid Canonical does not send free goodies like badges, cups or tees
even to loco teams. These are merchandise items and max possible is they
may be available for lesser price. We used to get limited number of
stickers and sometimes pens but am not sure even about them. It is very
economical to print stickers ourselves as we did during foss.in 2007. If
you're interested we would be able to share the sticker designs with
you. But there are certain design guidelines when creating derivatives
out of Ubuntu logo, please read them carefully and follow them if you
are going to design yourselves.
Am not sure whether amachu aka Sri Ramados is a part of this list but
you can find him in Ubuntu Tam (Tamil) Team. He is aware of resources
for punching CDs locally as well as goodies like pens, etc.
