I don't think they're never used, but I agree that many people grab them
without thinking. I won't go thinking about this - I have far little
experience with trade shows than others. Might want to contact the German

I'll keep your mail in mind, PR's going to get (more) active the next few

Thanks! Case badges and stickers are indeed a much-requested item that don't
cust too much (iirc).
