The cost of this option is astronomical

I would, however, support making a limited edition of TL USBs with
beautiful logos for special purposes: gifts, prizes, promotional
materials etc.  Not as a substitute for our regular mass-produced
DVDs, but as a complement for special purposes.  And I would support
sending them to those members who opt to pay for them.  Maybe we could
even make a profit if USBs are beautiful enough to be collectible
(= capable to be sold at higher prices).

Good luck
