All of these ideas are great, but nothing at all is going to get printed until the warehouse is empty of the first print run of Martian Coasters. So the best way to get to a point where Xeno coasters *could* be printed, is to buy out all the inventory of Martian Coasters everywhere. So, let's all get on that. Tell everyone you know to buy them. Go to bars and get drunks to buy them, so they always have a coaster on hand. Get church ladies who don't want you to set your glass of lemonade down on the coffee table to buy them. Ok, much of this was tongue-in-cheek, but the point is that LL is not going to print anymore coasters until they need more.
