I spied this photo on another part of AtariAge.  I absolutely L :lust: VE this concept for a mug.  Would any of you pony up a few bucks for a group purchase if we could all get one with a TI console wrapped around the cup?

Looks tacky to me. I could see a nice TI logo on the cup, maybe the newer word with the red Texas, that can be fully seen in the same "panel," but not wrapped around the cup.

Close, and although OLD CS1 thinks it looks tacky, it kinda 'does it' for me.  I'll have to go through my graphics and see if I have anything suitable.  Then I'll check to see if Vistaprint can do a wrap-around mug.

 

What would be perfect for me is a stainless steel cup with just the black and white TI keyboard wrapped around it.

What I left out of my original text was "it looks like something my grandfather would like."

 

Now it all makes sense ;)

Run an emboss filter on the pic and etch it onto a metal tumbler.

Or, wait!  Print it onto one of those five gallon thermos coolers so you can see the whole thing at once!

It does not look quite right to me, besides, I'd be spending way too much time in the bathroom and not on the TI if I had that filled with coffee!   ;)

If you guys want stainless, you could sorta mock it up by getting a Yeti or similar and vinyl stickers and just roll it on the mug.

Bummer, I would have preferred to do business with someone I know within the community.  Oh well, I'll get you on the keyboard cables.

The place I'll be going through in a previous message above makes them dishwasher safe, which is important to me.

Where's the actual link for this picture? I found a rather large one here - http://oldcomputers.net/ti994a.html

Don't know if it's the same res or not because I can't seem to find the one on mainbyte's page.

Dunno what exact picture you are looking for, but maybe this ZIP file of assorted daisy chained TI's has the one you are looking for...
