Forever Apes // Upgrade #4 // Logo request for ApeCoin capsule
Category: Core: Brand Decision
This proposal presents the idea that the Forever Apes team produce a sticker, patch, and poster set made available at cost to anyone, sold exclusively in $APE. We believe this will bring joy to holders, further $APE brand recognition IRL, and reduce unauthorized sales via unofficial channels. We are requesting use of the ApeCoin logo to do this.
We are a proud bunch, and following some great patches from Apefest and recent BAYC x McBess x The Dudes collab, the community is looking for a tasteful way to rep ApeCoin.
(Not A Sticker)
However, lack of official supply has resulted in improper and illegal representation of the brand on sites like redbubble.com. A quick search will net you 231 results, and they aren’t flattering.
(Redbubble.com search results - BAD)
(BAYC x McBess x The Dudes Collab - GOOD)
We need to protect our IP. Stickers and patches are the perfect way to spread some ApeCoin love, but lack of an official sales channel has resulted in disgraceful imitations via unauthorized websites. The Forever Apes team is prepared to produce 100 capsules without funding, however a DAO grant would allow us to produce these at scale. Once DAO is set up to accept funds, we could return profits to DAO.

Although we have various products planned, this DAO Proposal outlines one of our many products, an ApeCoin capsule.
- Capsule Contents
- 4 Stickers
- 1 Iron on patches
- 1 Poster
Forever Apes has already proven we are a strong design team and are fully capable of creating a sticker pack people will enjoy. We would also like to extend an invite to any / all DAO members who would like to submit designs. These community members will be compensated for approved designs.
Once the DAO approves this AIP, Forever Apes is positioned to implement these steps at once. Design will begin immediately.
The estimated timeline for the above steps is as following -
- Capsule design + production [4 Weeks]
- Launch [5 Weeks]
We are prepared to create 100 of these capsules without any DAO funding. If the community suggests a larger quantity is required we will request a grant and update the AIP to reflect this.
Total Estimate: TBD
