Note: There are many designs left over from the logo contest where we own the rights. That could be a very good way of making a quick revenue.
- Affiliate Programms. [Platinumpartner] seems like a good choice as well as [Sharesale] Dmalloc

Note: This is especially well suited for the European market.
