These guys are too pricey. Like $4.50 for a little bag:

So what do we really want?
Bumper stickers are coming.
Do we want hats? Dave has a connection for us there.
Pins? We'd have to come up with the money for those somehow since you have to have a large minimum order.

We can do a Cafe Press store and just sell the stuff at cost. They have all kinds of stuff, like mugs, shirts, hoodies, etc.
Anyone who wants something can just buy what they want in single quantities. They have good service too. I ordered a shirt from them that was too big, and they had me keep the shirt I had and sent out a new one for free.

I just created a quick cafe press shop so you can see what it's like.
I had the site put up all products with the same image, so some of the stuff will look a little goofy.
If we want to do this, some of the products would have to be customized with the correct sized logo/text etc.

Cafe press has definite possibilities, looks very promising.

What about some business cards to hand out to interested folks? Something with the short and sweet of it, web address, snail mail, etc. to hand out at festivals. Even just a printable version on the web, that could be printed off at home and kept in the kite bag.

We've had a time remebering/joining kite stuff, because, who wants to do bookkeeping work on the field? A short dity that can be taken home would be handy.

A good idea, and we are sort of ahead of you on this. We have business cards being printed as we speak.
But I like the idea of a version on the web for anyone to print out and be able to carry with them.
