this is the mailing list for Xfce development. I suggest you to better
ask directly at the Xfce Foundation for topics about merchandising.

Please read the following archived mail of Christian. He talks about
exactly your topic.

I don't get where people should see the connection to Xfce and/or
Ubuntu/Canonical. Xubuntu is now AFAIK a distribution completely
driven by the community. In past, there were also officially and partly
support from Canonical.
Personally, I don't like the logo. Why did you decide to restrict it
