New images for FSF credit cards

by root Contributions Published on Dec 10, 2009 04:52 PM
We're happy to announce that credit cards with the FSF logo are now available with 3 new images.

The mighty GNU tattoo image is from Rodolfo Borges of Brazil. The wildebeest photo is Schuyler Shepherd's (and is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution ShareAlike 2.5 License.). Both of them will receive an FSF t-shirt for their contribution.

The card is also available with the classic GNU logo.

Funds from this credit card program will help support the mission of the FSF to preserve, protect and promote the freedom to use, study, copy, modify, and redistribute computer software, and to defend the rights of free software users.

(Please don't let the thought of supporting us encourage you to start using a credit card if you don't already, or discourage you from buying anonymously with big-brother-resistant cash.)

If you use a credit card, sign up for the Free Software Foundation Visa Platinum Rewards Card and support the FSF with every purchase. There's a $50 donation to the FSF by the bank when you first use the card, plus ongoing contributions of 30 basis points or .3% of retail transactions. US residents only. Read more details about the card.

We also thank everyone from outside the US who's asked about getting an FSF credit card. We apologize that the cards are (currently) only available in the US. We don't know of any similar card-based fundraising options that are available to small organizations and work outside the US, but please contact us if you know of one.

...the contest continues

We're still looking to offer other card designs, designs that reflect, in some visual way, the activist spirit of the FSF and its supporters.

Please submit photos and artwork. They can be original, or links to public domain images on the net. By sending the image, you also agree to make it available as CC-BY. If we choose your image for the cards, we'll send you the t-shirt of your choice from the FSF store.

Send them as SVG, JPEG, or PNG, in the best quality you can manage, to

If the image is from the web, send a link, with a link to the license info. Note: If you send artwork, don't include any text. We know that's annoying, but it complicates things for a few reasons. Also, I won't be able to get back to all of you individually, so thanks in advance for your help, and good luck!
