I own AlmostFreeLinux.com a CD retailer and also use Debian quite heavily.
I worked with Adam last year to provide some CDs for a New York show.  These
CDs were co-branded, they had our logo and the Debian logo on them.  My
motivation is two-fold: to help the Debian project and to bring awareness of
my business to Linux fans.

The best situation would be to get me ISOs 3 to 4 weeks before the show.
This gives me plenty of time to produce the CDs and get them to you.  Let me
know what kind of demand you think there will be for discs and I can let you
know what I can provide.

I see from Matt's reply he is taking care of T-Shirts and has a couple
banners.  I could provide you with some Debian stickers or a small number of
(50) t-shirts... Maybe as part of a contest?

Let me know what I can do...

Thank you,
