Alright, so draft up a proposal for a booth banner that Jon Cruz will
manage at his discretion for events he (or his designee) can attend.
Is there an existing design that would be used, or would something need
to be crafted? If the former, we just need to know printing costs; if
the latter, guess it should include a design bid as well.

Ok, so I guess what we'd need to see is the $ cost on the 50 shirts
embroidered, and sample of the embroidery.
Even if I can't make it to the conference I'd definitely be interested
in buying an embroidered Inkscape t-shirt (or polo).
