Ribbon story part 28. Some international ribbons, and some heavy on the logos, half of them from last summer and the others from winter 2006-2007. All of them with designs that take advantage of our "camera-ready" art and the custom plates that we have etched for the ribbons.

- CAN FAN
- Mega 64
As I mentioned in footnote 3 of my post about the L.A.con IV Unofficial Ribbons exhibit, Glenn Glazer produced ribbons in Japanese. Basically they say "I'm going to in Yokohama in 2007."
John Mansfield and Robbie Bourget asked for CAN FAN ribbons for laconiv. John thought he'd just need a few. When Robbie gave me the money, she overruled him and ordered many more. There were over 200 Canadians pre-registered for the convention! Robbie's talked about doing another version for this year's Worldcon, but she hasn't actually given me the new text yet.
The whizzing-along wheelchair ribbons were a Christmas present someone ordered for Pat Larson (aka "Pat with wheels"). She got hundreds of them. I don't know if she'll be at baycon with them.
Nasir ("Lord Doki") ordered these logo ribbons in January of this year, in time for animelosangeles. Dethklok is the "insanely talented death metal band" from the tv show Metalocalypse. And Mega 64 is a video podcast show. His reprint order is in progress now.
