Psst… Want a Sticker?

   October 20th, 2009 Brian Herzog

Swiss Army Librarian stickersThis is the week* I would have been at the Ohio Library Council's annual conference, had it not been canceled. However, before I knew that, I had printed a bunch of Swiss Army Librarian stickers I was going to give to the people who came to my panel discussion.

Since that is no longer possible, I thought I'd offer them here. I have 40 of them, so the first 40 people to email me will get them - free, but you will need to send me an stamped return envelope (I'll email you back with more details).

Update: Sorry, all the stickers are gone. If I get more I'll post again here.

My cousin and graphic artist Tom created the artwork (thank you again), and CafePress did the printing. I put the same artwork on shirts, too, but haven't seen how those look - maybe I'll get one for myself for Christmas.

And speaking of gift ideas, here's a few other Swiss Army-related products I've had kicking around in my bookmarks folder for awhile:

And just because I thought it was funny, here too is a Swiss Army Knife FAIL comic:

*This is also the week of NELA09, which I attended and blogged Sunday and Monday. Yay for library conferences.

Giant Swiss Army Knife

   February 24th, 2009 Brian Herzog

giant swiss army knifeThe Surly Librarian tipped me off to this monster Swiss Army Knife - 85 tools and almost 3 pounds.

At first I thought it was just photoshoppery, but then I realized it is for sale, and there's a video of it in operation.

If I had bigger pockets, maybe I'd ask for one for Christmas. No, probably not - I'm pretty happy with mine.
