I should replace my Windows7 sticker as I haven't had Windows on this laptop in 2 years.

Just clicked the link in post 4 here and got a website talking about the offer, see attached partial screenshot. Might pay for you to try again. Cheers, yeti.

I did a little research and you can get the free stickers by writing to System76 Denver office with a self addressed stamped envelope.

From the link in post #4:


To get free stickers, send a self-addressed stamped envelope to the location listed for your country at https://www.system76.com/community/stickers.

When I hit the link in the quote, I get a 404 error. No idea where to send my self-addressed, stamped envelope in other words. :-k

sammiev ninja-ed me! Yes, exactly as their two screenshots. 404 error on the second page.

Just found the exact same image on a Google search for 'png images for Ubuntu'. And since I'm into graphic design (in a BIG way), & arts'n'crafts, I think I'm gonna make me up some of those...*hee, hee*


Regards,

Mike. :D

And we have the finished article...

Not metal (only photopaper), attached with double-sided tape, and covered with sticky-backed clear film for durability.

I'm quite pleased with the results..!

(I thought I'd do something about those AWFUL 'Windoze' keys while I was at it... :D)

Mike.

I'm versatile, mate; I can turn my hand to most things.....but I've been doing this kinda stuff for over 40-odd years! It's got a lot easier the last 15 or so, however.... ;)

I was trying to figure out how to laminate them...

Mike

The metal sticker looks great! However, the System 76 ones look good, too - and the price is right. I just sent my SASE. Thanks for the tip!

Cool! I also have an Ubuntu sticker on my computer as well... ;)
(And my keyboard too.)
The stickers that I used came from Canonical's official online store. (I got them for Christmas last year.)
