The mug images in this thread seem to have vanished, but I'm interested in logo'd mugs. Very pleased to have a DEC Large Systems Group mug (PDP-10s) among mine. So I'm probably interested, though I'd like to see what they look like if they're ever produced.

I'd love to see a reissue/reproduction of the classic Crimson mug:

Was that official SGI swag?

Yes - it was a promotional item at the time of the Crimson's introduction. They used to show up on eBay every once in a while, but I haven't run across one in a long time.

Seeing the Crimson mug is what got me started on my mug design.

I reloaded the pics btw.

1: I love the Crimson mug. Now where the heck am I going to find one...
2: Love the reloaded design from Page 1. Surely there's someplace we can slip that through...

Ok guys,

We are back in business!

I have found a place to run off my mug design.

Now the question is, how many of you guys are interested in possibly getting one?

...and is there anything you might want to change?

At least one, and probably two or three depending on the cost each.

I want two! One for home use and one for work.

Edit: A friend wants one too, so make it three :D

I hope this wont be a administrative burden on you.

Ok,

The price per mug is going to be somewhere around $12.00-$15.00 per mug shipped to me...

...Then there will be the additional packaging/shipping to your individual locations, the further away from KY you live, the more that will cost.

Right now we are at 12 mugs at the most.

For the order, the options are 5, 10 or 20 units. So, we can hang on for 8 more orders or knock 2 off...

I will get working on recreating the design this weekend, this vendor wants extremely high quality images. :mrgreen:

I gotta remember where the vector logos are on the sever, and if I recall correctly the "Octane" logo was not in vector format...I might need someone to whip one up.
