    Default Laptop stickies

    Hi,

    When I bought this laptop about the start of 2010 it had a sticky on it
    saying "Intel Pentium Inside" and another that said "Windows 7".

    Soon I got a new one that said "openSUSE" or "Novell" or something.

    Well, the openSUSE sticky soon defaced, and instead of green, it became
    white. Unreadable, unguessable.

    But both the Intel and Windows stickies are just as new!


    Sniff... we can not get decent Linux inside stickies. I'm gonna cry.

    Yes, some nice foil or UV-resistant stickers would be nice

    System76 has some nice foil Ubuntu stickers for free. https://www.system76.com/community/stickers/ I would be happy to pay if they offered them for openSUSE!

    Uh... I have a few slight domed foil gloss "powered by openSUSE". It was a "small run", so they are about $4 each. If there's any interest, I'm willing to part with some. Kinda pricey.

    Linux is free. Life is good.

    1. Get a suitable piece of thin aluminum, brushed aluminum would look best;
    2. Buy a package of Avery inkjet Clear Decal print medium;
    3. Download the openSUSE logo and use GIMP to scale it to the appropriate size;
    4. Print it to the decal sheet;
    5. Peel and stick it to the brushed aluminum;
    6. With very sharp scissors, cut to the desired shape, oval would be suitable;
    7. Spray a couple light coats of Clear Coat auto paint or some similar clear protective coating (do not use model paint, it will eat the printed decal);
    8. Allow to dry thoroughly;
    9. Coat the underside with a thin layer of contact cement;
    10. Stick onto laptop;
    11. Allow to cure overnight;
    12. Open laptop in morning and grin ear-to-ear.

    Wow, interesting!

    But I do not have any inkjet printer. I got tired of the blasted
    thing(s), and I only use lasers now. Much more reliable and even cheaper
    in the long run.

    I would not even know where to get that aluminium... maybe the "lids"
    from a yoghourt from the supermarket :-)


    (googling for the exact string "Avery inkjet Clear Decal" finds nothing,
    so I don't exactly know what type of labels they are)
