A member of this forum, "computer guy" made a good looking sticker that he is selling here. (http://robot.tmcp.com.au/stickers)
I like his design but the shipping costs are to much for me so I decided to make a keychain of it.

If you would like to make it at home, you need the following stuff:
- color printer
- 1 sheet paper for your printer http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/lol.gif
- a cartridge for your printer http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/lol.gif
- an empty keychain (you can open a used one)
- the attached image (little bit changed for 3x4 cm dimensions)
- a computer program to print a 3x4 cm image (or other dimensions for other keychains)
- scissors (or a paper cutter for the best result)

Cool idea! Yup, will be watching for a blank keychain myself.
Might even look better on photo-paper.

Of course you did both sides?

Eh... I forgot the backside...
Well, it looks good on the picture anyway :P
Don't do both sides on normal paper,
print it twice because otherwise you will see it through the paper.

I did this on normal paper, but I could try photo paper.
I'm sure the result would be better that way.
