Merchandising chess problems
Don't laugh! I have a kitchen roll / paper towels with Sudoku riddles. I wonder if something like that could be made with chess problems. Maybe we could make chess composition more known to people that way?
edit: "known to more people" would fit better what I mean but Sergiy did understand me, obviously :-)

It's a good idea! Calendars, exercise-books, notepads with chess compositions can interest a lot of people.
But maybe the most suitable product for advertisement is toilet paper! Restrooms, that's where people have time to think.

Oh, I knew *many* chess problems that are *perfectly*
suited for this purpose. Please excuse if I don't give an
actual example, I don't want to spoil anyone's Xmas :-)

Marjan Kovačević, I read in (german language) Wikipedia, produces beermats with chess problems (and solutions on a separate beermat). They can be found at the publisher Caissa Commerce (Beograd). The beermats have a plastic coat. Very nice idea! Maybe he can tell us more about such projects?

Addendum: Since the MPF probably doesn't read INSELSCHACH -
at the last AniChess Cup in Hamburg there were little
chocolate tables with old #n classics (pre-1900).
As I already PMed to Siegfried, one was anticipating mine
so I quickly ate up the evidence :-) (OK, so I lied,
sometimes you have to retrofit reality to improve it...)

A chess club in Rio de Janeiro (Clube de Xadrez Guanabara or Guanabara Chess Club) has a collection of green beermats with classic chess problems inprinted.
If one of the beermats problems anticipates Hauke Reddmann I'll bring it to Jurmala so he can eat that evidence too!

Screen Saver seems the easiest...
