[Marketing] getting printed materials ready for boston

Astrid I wanted to check if we were both being asked (or assumed) to be handling printing for Boston? I kind of hoped it was handled, but Marc took off on holiday :slight_smile: With Boston two weeks away we may be cutting it close to get both materials printed locally, and collect any revisions the team had after foss4ge.

Hunting through email here was Marc’s shopping list - $1500 USD for the following:

  1. two roll up banners

  2. general 4 page folder (1000, shiny finish)

  3. stickers (shot finish)

  4. (Marc already has a table cloth)

Options for printing:

  • recommended printer trade.4over.com that can ship to Boston

  • Michael Smith used Office Max to print for us at OSCon

  • Any others …

Stickers

Marc has requested, and I have received the following:

  • sticker 85x55mm-def.pdf
  • sticker 98x98mm-def.pdf

These were used in foss4ge - and were a bit large for my tastes (people have small laptops now).

Action: Ask Jeffrey Johnson if he has the smaller stickers to include in the print run.

Banners

Marc has requested, and I have received the following:

  • rollupbanner1-def.pdf 22.5 MB (so print ready) “osgeo” banner
  • rollupbanner2-def.pdf 37.8 MB (so print ready) “open source compass” banner

A3 Brochure - Print 200

Marc has requested, and I have recieved:

  • osgeo-broucher-def.pdf 24 MB (so print ready)

We have a draft here:

action: We need a copy of this for US Sizes (not A4) because Boston? Or do we may extra for a non standard size…

Luca is working on revising the a3 content:

  • https://github.com/lucadelu/osgeo/tree/brochure_svg/marketing/print/brochure_a3
  • these are cut down draft graphics not suitable for printing
  • the full resolutions background images are in github, perhaps use of svg image element could be used
  • page 2-3 has some errors, the “open geospatial content” needs to go big or go home - not use in a quote box
  • page 4-6 thanks for fixing bold text, the project logos do not look good, especially geonetwork on its white background. I think we would need to use logo+name consistently for this to work. Let us be content to hand out project information sheets if there is more interest in a specific project. You had some feedback on “turn-key” / “integrated” solutions - perhaps calling them all “web mapping?”
  • page 6-7 hard to make the foss4g logo to work (since no other sections have logos, even though they have sub brands). We can remove the bullet points for foss4g. FOSS4G Section will need to happen after Local Chapters (since text refers to local chapter to learn more about local events). Software Foundation - can turn the block into two normal bullet points. Picture of people is from a code sprint - not a foss4g event and held in a laptop. I think we will need a different picture ( https://flic.kr/p/7rmX59 or the boat pic so it looks like a party https://flic.kr/p/La4VHE ). And frame in a picture frame :slight_smile:
  • page 6 - looks good we should move the logos under “supporting osgeo” since they are sponsor logos

action: Luca is scheduled to visit with Pim ASAP to get these changes applied to the “print ready” graphics.
action: Print as part of initial print job if ready, if not print locally in boston and pick up!

A4 Information Sheets

We have the following here:

Luca has corrected a problem with the osgeo_a4.svg - so we should print that.

And Luca and others are possibly making more information sheets:

  • osgeo A4 sheet - nice short alternative to brochure

  • geoforall A4 sheet - a couple mistakes (extra line break, no geoscience) but so far nobody has corrected

  • foss4g A4 sheet - no point they are already at boston

  • osgeo live A4 sheet

  • grass A4 sheet

And because it is boston do we need to consider reformatting for Letter, or paying more for a non standard size.

Hi Jody,

I wasnot asked/assumed to do the printing for Boston. I had bad experiences with sending material to the US. It takes ages.

Hope you get the material printed locally. And please also print the A4 INFORMATION SHEETS from the projects that are on the way. Worst case could be some copies from the next copy shop.

I am off for one more week on holidays.

See you

Okay - I may need to ask for more budget for new information sheets (we only planned on content from get interactive - Luca and yourself move quickly!)

Jody Garnett

If you need last minute printing, I recommend using Staples, they have a location near my office and I can pick things up that need to go to the FOSS4G. (https://storelocator.staples.com/stores/en_US/MA/Boston/0063)

You can also have things sent to my office if you need a place to store things before the conference.

Okay ordering and keeping track of everything is proving a bit much for email - starting a document we can fill in with prices here:

FOSS4G Printables

Luca I have shared edit permission with you on this document in case any additional project information sheets arrive.

One amusing glitch is many local print shops will only print the American “Letter” size (not A4). Please let me know how you would like to proceed on that one? If we leave margins big enough we may be able to ignore the issue.
