In the Three liner update 13.07 topic, some people suggested that they wanted to donate to Eve to help off-set the higher cost of the new displays. It’s not like Eve though, to ask for your money and not give you something in return. “So how about we sell some T-shirts?” asked Konsta. That way the people who want to support Eve can do so, and they get something in return.
Of course, that leaves the question of what we’d actually offer. And since we’re Eve, of course we want community input! Give us your suggestions!
(Below are a number of posts moved from the abovementioned topic to keep that thread clean and get the discussion here started.)
Same here. Maybe it would be a good idea for someone to make a poll to see how many people would be willing to support the price of the new screen if you guys think you’ll have problems supporting yourself financially. @Team
Love the idea…
Is there a way that Eve creates (crowdsources?!) clothing/gear design that you then simply export to a shop which will take care of the cloth quality, print quality, etc. I am fairly certain that you can find a shop that lets you collect profits in a respectable fashion.
T-shirts / Hoodies / Mugs / Caps / Simple Backpacks with logo / Keychains etc. - I would opt for nothing fancy when it comes to the logo applied to these objects: a simple eve logo works just fine (well, if someone knows how to make it look cooler I would not mind at all , but the one you guys made it’s perfect - i.e. the wallpaper you made).
All sound good to me and I would be very happy to buy some of them knowing that this would help you guys
PS. It is indeed a better idea to support the project this way and not by simply receiving donations.
I’d be so down for some Eve swag. I almost always buy a hoodie from my favorite companies simply to show support. Maybe some alternate ideas would be window decals (I’d stick it on my V) or a sticker pack (cheap to design, produce, ship).
