ah you misunderstand, bill: i have NEVER been permitted to be in the
BUSINESS of selling cards, EVER. a Certification Mark holder is not
permitted to, as it is "competing with licensees". the only way to
get the Cards out to people is to be an "Advisor" to ThinkPenguin, who
has handled the finances and so on.
so let me be clear: ANYONE MAY CONTACT ME AND BECOME A SALES AGENT.
or license EOMA68 and make their own Housings and Cards. if the
design is entirely libre the licensing fee will be zero and i will do
everything i can to help them.
