  6. the stamps remind me of the 3D printer – they are also OpenSource! Maybe that would be cool to create AND produce stuff as Open as it can be… just a thought.

  7. The stamps look really cool. How were they made?

    Are they for sale?

    • Hi Roel! I sent high resolution PNG files created in Inkscape to and they handled the rest. They are really high-quality! They only cost $5/piece; they are 1″ wide.

  8. Supercool! Did you send the version you put on the website? Which resolution should I export? On, are these the ” Art-Mounted Stamps”?

    I love your work!

    • That’s exactly right, art-mounted stamps. I exported 600 dpi. I think the pngs and source artwork are here:

      • Thanks for the fast reply. And thanks for the PNGs, this saves a lot of trouble.
        I looked at the CD booklet, but on the scribus file (I changed the xml to: , because you’re using the bleeding edge and the default version cannot open it) the blue is much brighter.. Is that just the screen, or is that going to affect the print?

        • It’s CMYK colorspace, so it’s going to look funky on your screen, unless you’ve got your screen calibrated and all that I think. It prints out a true Fedora blue. At least it did for us, we just got some proofs back from the printers today 🙂
