I looked for an online job to offer some OOo stuff like that on demand. 
I have to figure it our again. The idea is to provide the designs and 
define which kind of products should be sold (t-shirts, sweatshirts, 
mugs, bags, etc.)

The hoster/maintainer of the job will get XY% from the money and the 
rest can be transferred to Apache. That should be a model where we don't 
have to produce something on hold but can do it on demand. Maybe a 
little bit more expensive but we would have less effort.

But it is always good to have some material in place for conferences etc.

I have produced t-shirts several times for the FOSDEM when I have 
organized the OOo presence there... I hope I can do it next year for AOO
