I will run around and find out how much it costs. Ideas and graphic designs
are most welcome. Does anyone have Ubuntu badges (we had a big roll, when we
hosted Linux Expo two years ago? How do we get the badges from Canonical, I
know they ship a few with the Linux CDs

The Yo!Africa one

Great idea, I will start a thread on the regalia project.

You are most welcome, good day, enjoy the rest of your weekend.
