Click here to order or browse Not long ago, I toyed with the idea of working up some t-shirts, mugs and other knick-knacks with the PDML logo and various (mostly humorous) sayings and quotations from list members. My annual compilation of list quotations has become something of a tradition. (You can see the latest list here.) Voila! Instant inspiration for t-shirt designs!

Mouse pad - Click here to order or browse So now you can buy t-shirts, mugs and a very snarky mouse pad (emblazoned with Photoshop instructions to "improve" your photos), most with humorous slogans that only photographers, PDML members or the slightly demented will appreciate, and we'll donate the profits to childhood cancer research. In its first 4 days on line, our store raised about $100.00 from 13 sales... including two from Australia and one from the UK.

A mention in the popular Online Photographer blog got things kick-started. Now we just need people like yourself to pitch in. You'll make your friends turn green with envy (or at least with astonishment) when you show off your cool schwag.
