OK - I have added them to the wiki - together with artwork in the 'new' 
poster style using the previous CentOS 3D logo ...

IMHO people wont buy them - but YMMV

If anyone is really good at posters artwork then I am sure we can get them 
printed - we still have an offer of printing sponsorship , but I dont know 
what timescales they are working to.

Do you have a cost for bulk printing posters ??

It would not take that long to finalise artwork if you can agree content - 
probably something loosely based on the flyer we have would be good  ?? :)
