I’ve been looking for an official channel to purchase OpenZFS merch like shirts and stickers to support the project, but I’ve been unable to find any.
So I wanted to reach out to someone officially associated with OpenZFS and ask, Is printing stickers using the official logo through a service like Sticker Mule allowed? I don’t plan to sell any of them. If so, where can I locate the best files to use for this?
Problem is, I’ve emailed firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com and both emails have been returned with “Recipient address rejected: User unknown in virtual mailbox table” errors.
Try asking someone specific: Matthew Ahrens or Brian Behlendorf for example.
Will do! Thank you Jim. Love the 2.5 Admins podcast also!
Report back to us please. I’d love a sticker whether we put up a shop or have to print ourselves. Maybe proceeds can be donated to the OpenZFS org, assuming it is an org?
Will do. I reached out to Matt and Brian and we’ll see how it goes. After reading over the brand guidelines, I’m fairly certain that re-use of the logo is allowed for my use case.
Next issue is locating high-resolution graphic files of the logo. Preferably SVG I believe. I’m not a graphics expert, but haven’t been able to find any high resolution versions of the logos (standard and wide-spelling) with a cursory search.
I found the brand guidelines: https://openzfs.org/OpenZFS%20Guidelines.pdf
This page (About OpenZFS - OpenZFS) says to go ask for reuse by emailing
firstname.lastname@example.org but obviously that is out of date.
Yep I found that SVG and the brand guidelines. The logo on the Wiki is high enough resolution to produce quality stickers I believe, but I’m still after a high resolution of the…“rectangle” version of the logo (for lack of a better term). I’m not sure if one could be created from the .PDF without quality loss.
