I released the first 2600 of these at Chaos Communication Camp 2011, which seemed appropriate to me, since the previous Camp (in 2007) was the birthplace of the new wave of hackerspaces.
 
 
I brought 3 stamps with me to Camp: 
 
* Noisebridge
 
* Hardware Hacking Tent (which I'm helping organize)
 
* a stamp I made for CCCamp2011

The Hackerspace Passports cost me about €1 each, and that's what I sold them for.
 
 
My hope was that all hackerspaces and all hacker conferences would make their own stamps, so that hackers can travel the world and share their stories with one another by showing off the stamps in their passport.  It worked!

Contents

The Hackerspace Passports were created to

  • help promote people visiting as many hackerspaces around the world as possible
  • increase collaboration
  • increase cross-pollination so we can all learn from one another
  • encourage all hackerspaces to support each other
  • (And it's fun.)

These Hackerspace Passports look a lot like US Passports, but no fingerprints needed! And, rather than a requirement for passing borders, they are intended to encourage it!

Hackerspace and hacker cons around the world have made their own stamps, so people can get their Hackerspace Passport stamped everywhere they go!

Stamp Dimensions

Each page of the Hackerspace Passport can accommodate 4 stamps of 41mm x 47mm, or 1 stamp up to 89mm x 118mm.

Promotional Graphics

Below are some drafts for website badges to promote that your hackerspace has stamps to support these passports.

Clicking on these badge buttons should link back to this wiki or to a custom page that your hackerspace uses to show off their stamps. Note: At this time these are not official buttons but just drafts. Button look subject to change. Check back often.

Making Your Own Hackerspace Passports

If you want to make your own Hackerspace Passports, then please do! If you make your own then you can do it any way you want! You can call it whatever you want! You can create your own artwork! You can make it any shape you want! You can do anything you wish, since it is yours!

You can also grab the original artwork, and use it verbatim, or hack it for your purposes. The artwork is entirely free and open source. See the links, below, for the print-ready PDF, and also the source artwork.

To make 2,600 of them, I used a local printer, named Valencia Printing, on Valencia St, in San Francisco. But any printer can print these. Of course, the fewer you make, the more expensive it is to make each one. Valencia Printing used 4-color printing on the inside pages, and used thick cardstock for the cover, using navy-blue and white ink on the cover. It would be even nicer (I think) if the cover were colored vinyl, with silver or gold embossed artwork (but Valenica Printing couldn't do that for me in the short amount of time I had to get 2,600 of them made between when I had the idea in July and before Chaos Camp in August-2011).
