+1 from Arnulf. Additionally I must confess that me too did this in several occasions (last at Intergeo 2006). More so I even have a hand crafted business card that I use regularly when I an in the role of OSGeo Director or Mapbender PSC member because then my business business card wont be any good. 

Here it says:
that you should ask whenever you need to create something with the OSGeo logo on it (well, it actually says that you are not allowed to at all - unless you ask). Who is to be asked and who will decide (and in what time, we would not want to have to wait for the next board meeting)? Is this a job done by VisCom? 

Imagine me retrospectively asking for permission to print my business cards to be used whenever I act as OSGeo participant. Additionally I needed to print my own buttons because time delay due to shipping it around the world would prevent me from using them at a conference. Where should I send this request?

Good idea, like it is on the lands end shirt.
