We're working on custom swag for the photo.SE community. Based on this chat session and this one we are thinking of making Photo Stack Exchange branded camera straps and 18% gray lens cloths. What do you guys think? Would these be cool and useful for you? Do you have any even more awesome ideas for merch? Leave your feedback below!
I'd use a microfiber cloth, because that's practical. So sure. It' s not very exciting. I probably wouldn't use a camera strap; I already have a nice one, and it isn't covered in branding.
High quality stickers? I might stick one on my laptop and possibly on some random gear.
What about lens covers or frame?
You know we're all just in it for the badges, right? So how about some little pin badges in bronze, silver and gold? Perhaps even a variety pack with a bunch of bronzes, a few silvers and a gold. :)
Of course, there's the idea of business cards, perhaps featuring their photos on the reverse, with details on t' front - might be more useful for the semi-pros, rather than the pros on here, but I'll through that idea into this mix :)
I think camera straps will be nice, specially if they're nicely padded. I also like the idea of HQ waterproof/weatherproof stickers. Also an online badge showing reputation, rank etc can be handy for people having their own website.
