Hi there! This is kind of an unusual question, but here it goes. I am a big time Matlab enthusiast and I met some of your representatives at Formula Student Germany back in August. There was a booth were your product was showcased but most importantly there was Matlab merchandise such as stickers, rub-on-tattoos and pens with the mathworks logo being handed out. This merchandise is increadibly popular with me and my nerdy friends. But sadly I didnt bring much with me from the event. Is it possible to get ahold some of it? Is it for sale? Are you willing to sponsor some geeky engineering students?

On online store would be perfect, but we've asked before and since they haven't done it yet, I guess they're not interested. Too bad. Perhaps they want you to "earn" it by attending events or training. That's the way I got my stickers, hats, t-shirts, etc. What I'd like is a static cling window decal to put on the inside of my car window (not outside where it could get stolen or weathered). I have a orange "peaks" logo sticker on the lid of my laptop computer now. I gave my t-shirt to my college student son and he loves it - the envy of other students who also want one.

I get occasional items too, which I very much appreciate. (My wife loves the water bottle we got some years ago.) But I have a funny feeling they don't want to make MATLAB merchandise into a profit center. That would force them to maintain a store, maintain inventory, lots of shipping expenses.
Instead, they do lots of shows where where they have a MATLAB booth, for example. There they often will give out bling. Then any bling that is left over, they can give out as they wish.
I recall my wife used to manage the distribution warehouse at Kodak that held the Kodak bling items. The same thing - small lots of all sorts of advertising items.
So the trick is to go to a conference where TMW will have a booth. Maybe a SIAM conference. They will probably have bling there given out for free.

If you have a 3-D printer you can print your own logos.
We tried to print the MATLAB logo in 3-D in PLA plastic from Ned Gulley’s blog.
Ned's print didn't work because one corner part of the logo starts on a really small point and goes out (expands) from there and that just couldn't happen - the printer just put out a curly blob there. So we got a different MATLAB peaks logo print file off the internet that had a solid base and printed that. It came out perfect. Right now we just have turquoise and white filament but perhaps I’ll get some orange to make it look genuine. We can scale the size to whatever size we want. This one is 2 inches (50 mm) square.
