I don't know about adding squat the planet in there. It'd be nice to get the site some extra exposure but I don't want to pay to basically advertise for you on my neck. Although I absolutely wouldn't mind if it's subtler than a gigantic "SQUATTHEPLANET.COM"

Either way I'll buy one

Love it!
How about a squat key, since it is for squat the planet? Haha, maybe you could make one of those pictogram puzzles to represent StP.

Also, someone I may or may not know made these bandannas a few years back. https://www.etsy.com/listing/85228426/ows-bandana-black
They have a bunch of useful info around the border, ACLU and NLG numbers, and other good tips. Maybe we could think of a few specific to travelling and put them on there? I always like my things to be as utilitarian as possible...

Definitely in for at least one!

Count me in for one. And count one more vote for stp being in there somewhere.

I also agree with whoever suggested more subtlety in the anarcho-alcoholic stuff

Whatever you do, please don't put squattheplanet.com on it in bold or large letters, as someone else mentioned it would sorta detract from the essence I think you're going for and give it somewhat of a walking advertisement or brand aesthetic.

Haha I actually never intended to put any kind of plug for StP, since I figured it would speak for itself and folks can tell anyone that wants to know where they got it.

If I did put a plug, it would probably be a tiny "www.squattheplanet.com" along the edge on one side.

Love it!

Ha, I've totally seen that bandana before its pretty great. It would be cool to have some kind of neat info on it like that but it would most likely be just a little too much/too crowded.

I still like the idea of putting a map on the back, but that's twice as much paint, work, etc. And I want to make sure the first run is a high a quality as possible before I start going buck wild with crazy ideas :)

Oh, and what do you mean buy a squat key? You mean like a water key? Or a crowbar?

Does the suggested 10$ price tag go to the website donation?
I'll definitely be using part of it to pay server costs, but this is a mostly for-profit venture, since there's a lot of stuff I need before I start school. If you're asking if purchases will show up on the donation meter, probably not. I mean, you *could* donate 10 bucks then send me a pm with where you want your bandanna sent.

Think you could post one to Australia?
i don't mind shipping internationally, but keep in mind you'll have to pay for shipping, which may be expensive or take a long time. i can't imagine it would take that long though, it's just a piece of cloth :)

i like the ideas so far. the first design is cool, but i think the symbols should be a bit smaller and slightly more hand drawn looking. putting "squat the planet" on it would be cool, but imo there's no reason to put ".com" on it. anyway i like what i see. wish i had some input for ya. i'll be sure to get one once you finish them up.

This is so awesome that this is going to happen! I like how you made the vertical borders into roads: nice way to incorporate it! I'm happy to "hand draw" in the symbols in illustrator if it's any help, not that I imagine the task is too difficult ;)

actually, could you? i'm a total illustrator noob, and my circle a/squat sign aren't coming out too well:

for anyone reading this, this isn't an official design, i'm just testing to see what various things look like on it... but of course, feel free to let me know what you think!

@ellilis how do you get those neat wavy lines that make it look hand drawn? i've been mostly copying and pasting your previous lines and manipulating them to where they need to be.

I drew em in so they'd look hand-drawn ;) Just preferred that style to straight. You did great in however you manipulated the road and whatnot. :) I can make the symbols you have here (anarchy etc) in ellilis-hand-drawn-style for sake of consistency and send em on?

    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
