Unixstickers Launches Stickers Signed By FOSS Biggies, Will Donate Entire Revenue

Unixstickers is the most prominent name when it comes to Linux and Open Source merchandising. You can get stickers, mugs, t-shirts and more on their website.

This Italy-based startup is the official merchandise partner of various Open Source projects and they share part of the profit with those projects. This is one of the many reasons why I recommend them if you are looking to buy Linux and programming related goodies.

Unixstickers has launched something unprecedented today. They asked 5 bigwigs of the FOSS world to sign a handful of limited edition stickers. Each of these signees chose a foundation or initiative that will benefit from the proceeds raised through the sales of these custom stickers.

The five FOSS personalities and their chosen projects are:

  • Dave Gandy, founder of Font Awesome (Donation goes to New Story Charity)
  • Yukihiro Matzumoto aka Matz, chief designer of the Ruby programming (Donation goes to Ruby Central)
  • Salvatore Sanfilippo aka Antirez, creator of Redis (Donation goes to Museo dell’Informatica Funzionante)
  • David Heinemeier Hansson aka DHH, creator of Ruby on Rails (Donation goes to the Electronic Frontier Foundation)
  • Neil McGovern, Executive Director at the GNOME Foundation (all donations go to the GNOME Foundation)

And here are the exclusively signed stickers:

These looks great, don’t they? Since these are exclusive stickers, they are expensive. Every single sticker costs $50.

Don’t worry, not all the stickers are that expensive on Unixstickers. These limited stickers have been created specifically for the donation purpose. So you are not really buying a super expensive sticker. Instead, you are donating $50 to a charity/open source project and in return, you are getting a signed sticker of an open source leader.

If this is something that excites you, don’t hesitate to buy one from their website below:

I wonder if there will be a Linus Torvalds signed stickers in future 😉 So, what do you think of this new initiative by Unixstickers?
