Because he'd have to supply those products to Amazon so they can distribute it (or sell through Amazon and distribute the products himself, which is more difficult and makes things not "Prime Eligible"). And to supply the products, he'd need to have a manufacturer lined up.

CafePress makes, sells, and distributes the products on their site. The "owners" just send in the logos they want and what products they want it on and that's all they do. CafePress will then send the owner a cut of the proceeds when someone buys something on the site. It's not as lucrative as selling things yourself, but it also frees up a lot of time that can be better used in making Slackware better.

Pat previously stated that when he set up the CafePress site, the Slackware Store had full distribution rights to the original Slackware logo, so he used the flippy logo. There's been many suggestions that he switch CafePress to the original logo as many would like to purchase something officially supporting him with the original logo, but this obviously hasn't happened yet. I hope it's yet to come and Pat is just focused on getting -current closer to a beta release and, ultimately, a new stable 15.0 release.

Ah ok I didn't know it was that much trouble, good thing then he doesn't since he shouldn't be troubled with all that, so he can focus on Slackware.

Have you also received 'Data Security Incident' e-mail from 'CafePress onotreply@cafepress.com>'? It looks legit in comparison to multiple spam e-mails I get each day.
