Would any of you be interested in branded merchandise like mugs, caps etc?

I'd of course be flattered, but also surprised!

A baseball cap would be awesome! Black with the red & white logo done small. I'd buy one. You could of course also design one which is the logo. That would be good for the flasher members here :lol:

That's flasher, as in "Flash", "Showy", "Loud". Not as in... :oops:

A simple shirt with a pocket logo or chest logo would be nice, or like zorro said a baseball cap or something. A mouse pad wouldn't be too bad either!

Any option used a reward for the monthly On Assignment contest would be a fun idea as well!

Let's be honest, anyone under the age of 60 in the UK would be interested in a baseball cap. They're everywhere :lol:

Yes! I can clearly see it!

The new Gordon Laing Action Figure - be the chief of CameraLabs! Review the hotest gear! Rule the empire! - now with new uniform and a talking voice *pulling a string from back* - "Hi I'm Gordon Laing editor of CameraLabs.com and I'd like to give you ..." :twisted: Hell it even comes bundled with a Gordon-bobblehead for the car dashboard!

SHOW ME THE MONEY :$::$::$:
















What? ... too far? :(

Yo does anyone think that a small sticker with the Camera Labs name and logo (and maybe even customised with your own name) where you could stick it on the grip of your DSLR(or anywhere else you like) would be a good idea? Sorry to those compact camera owners here...

And i'd like to add that a shop with CL merchandise would be a great way(in addition to the price grabber links) to boost funding for the site and keep those great reviews coming!

(Maybe even enough to give the mods some monetary gratitude :twisted: )

P.S.: Cheezbrgr that was epic. You'd have to read it in the voices of those TV ads for max enjoyment! :P

I like the idea of a discret CL sticker or badge, you could put it on your bag or something, and a baseball cap with the CL logo on it and maybe on the back it could say in big letters. "PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER" Oh and Cheezbrgr, would you sell the DSLR Tips shirt separately for Gordon's action figure?

Crikey, I didn't think there'd be that much interest!

But since there is, I'll look into it!

PS - Cheezbrgr, tell you what, if there ever is an action figure, I'll make sure you get a share of the profits! I wouldn't hold your breath on that one though!

I want one!!!

And you need to come up with t-shirts with some witty photography-related slogans on them.

I think stickers would be a great idea.

I got really excited about the idea of a badge for my camera bag. So much so that i decided to design one and here it is...

I would definately buy something like this (and a mouse mat). Sorry if its a little pixelated i saved the file size to small :roll:

What i think you need Gordon is a Bass guitar to go with your shirts and you'll be transformed into an Acid Jazz legend.

You mean that dude from the Brand New Heavies? - I remember reading somewhere he held some kind of record about shirts...
