A Matt to put your beer (or drink) on....

I thought it would be a great idea to have some printed with a Shadowcat focus as promotional gift items

During February I created for the Enlightened Perl Organisation a group of beermats for the use and distribution at conferences and worshops, especially those that have a non-Perl focus as detailed on the TPF wiki page. See my blog article on

The mats looked good when they finally arrived here at the Shadowcat Barracks, so good in fact that I thought it would be a great idea to have some printed with a Shadowcat focus as promotional gift items. The initial print run will have the design below:

Shadowcat Front
Shadowcat Back

These mats are currently with the printers and if they look as good as the EPO group they will be sent out to the wider world soon after. So if you are going to a workshop or conference and know that we are going to be there, then make sure to grab us for a beermat (coaster) or three to rest your favourite fermented fruit upon (we will also give them out to people of a more sobrietous bent as long as you promise not to persuade us to be so restrained ;) ).

If anyone has feedback (and until we have a commenting system) please don't hesitate to email me at: m.keating [at], if your comments are useful, fun, or just plain interest to me, or if I think will be useful to others, then I will add them to the end of this post, let me know how you would like to be named (anon, nick etc.).
