@nafetswirth @hernas I'd love to see your pitch deck.
awesome idea, but the 3 you currently offer don't really rock my socks off.

Hi everyone - I've been off the grid today, so just catching up with this. What a nice surprise to find a small side proj on PH's front page ;) @hernas @danielkegel re only three posters? Yeah, I know -- we started with three because a) it's a side project - our daytimes are spent busily making for a client b) this are a physical products, so we have up-front costs. Also, small print runs of posters (eg printing just 5, or even printing one on demand) are unsustainably expensive per item - leaving no or even negative profit at that volume - so we had to pick a few designs to test the water and get 50+ of each printed up as a toe in the water. Holding stock, damage, returns, etc - it's all a new experience for me compared to building SaaS products c) I wanted to be sure that every poster we make is 100% 'legit' in terms of usage of the quote. Even the dealings with the Python Software Foundation (which is v friendly and generally awesome) took a fair amount of back-and-forth to ensure everyone was happy, so batting out dozens of poster designs featuring quotes from various sources (all still in copyright or referencing trademarks) on Day 0 wasn't really gonna happen. So, yeah, MVP out the door - see what the water is like, then add more designs. That's the plan.
@stevejalim Printing on demand as and when needed shouldn't be expensive at all, I manage a fine art print studio - let me know if I can help at all.
@martinlucas Thanks Martin - would def be good to have a chat. Will email you directly - hopefully this evening
@stevejalim cool, look forward to hearing from you.
The design looks nicely done but you should have at least twenty times as many...
