We now have an entire page of 2k users, followed by a page of 1k users, so hopefully are hitting the right success/size metrics. Traditionally Stack Exchange reward this with a cool swag giveaway. We really need to think about what this could be.

Obviously T-shirts are a no brainer. I haven't yet seen them in person, but @Jeff says they look grand - @Jin's design works.

So what else do we think we would like? One idea per answer, and vote for ones you like.

SE folks - let us know if we are on the right track here and what you have already planned :-)

  • Oh, bummer. I'll post a photo tomorrow night. – Jeff Ferland Dec 10 '11 at 5:55
  • Hm, the site is still in the second beta phase and not considered mature by SE, until the top 40 tags have reached 200 questions each. – Hendrik Brummermann Dec 10 '11 at 21:53
  • Although in looking at some of the other sites, that didn't seem to be the criterion used. Hopefully - as we only have 5 over 200 questions each – Rory Alsop Dec 10 '11 at 22:06

    Obviously we should have branded USB sticks! – user2213 Dec 10 '11 at 23:51

  • +1000 - excellent! – Rory Alsop Jan 30 '12 at 19:26
  • When can the rest of us get a black version? – Iszi Jan 30 '12 at 19:58
  • @Iszi It's actually navy – Jeff Ferland Jan 30 '12 at 21:21
  • @JeffFerland Still a lot darker than the preview we've been given. – Iszi Jan 31 '12 at 1:12
  • @Iszi If the shirt material is the same, you can expect something between the demo page and the color here. This batch of shirt was from DEFCON last year. – Jeff Ferland Jan 31 '12 at 3:41
  • I'm jealous. I don't even have the shirt... it looks great on ya. – Jin Feb 3 '12 at 16:18

Sec.SE branded lockpick credit cards, like Kevin Mitnick's famous one:

  • Love this idea. I wonder how much those cost, anyway? – Iszi Jan 4 '12 at 21:32

    Found out. If we wanted just one each, it seems the cost would be at least $280 for the first two pages of users. That's $100 for a one-time film creation fee. Then $1.80 per card, up to 500, minimum of 100. After 500 cards, the cost drops to $1.60 per. metalcards.com/metalcards/mcpricing.html – Iszi Jan 4 '12 at 21:43

T- Shirts with a big sec.se logo on the front or polo shirts with a small logo on the chest

    And a target on the back? – this.josh Dec 12 '11 at 21:32

I'd like a Sec.SE branded mug. Not some generic Stack Exchange mug, one with my favorite site design.

Just to clarify, this may be too much for freebies; I'd pay for it.

    I would also pay for a mug. – user2213 Dec 10 '11 at 23:04
  • I, too would prefer a mug over a shirt, and would pay – schroeder Dec 14 '11 at 15:28

I'd love a baseball cap with logo and url on the back, like the popular EFF "SWAT" hat: https://supporters.eff.org/shop/eff-swat-hat enter image description here

Rucksacks or swag sacks - not sure whether a laptop bag or a small single shoulder rucksack would be best here. Comments?

Small, coloured enamel lapel pins with our logo - lapel pins are often a good conversation starter.

    If you are not in management they might look pretentious. – this.josh Dec 12 '11 at 21:31

Pens - either SE or Sec.SE branded would do

Post it packs, or pads - with a small logo + URL these can be very effective to scribble notes on to give to others

A teddy bear! I'll call him Tom, and feed him a honeypot called Jerry.

A pair of socks with a sec.SE logo would be awesome.

A Sec.SE branded keyring in the shape of a padlock, perhaps with one of those shopping trolley tokens.
