#300 Budget request for Fedora swag at DevConf.in 2018 Bengaluru, India
Opened a year ago by pjp. Modified a year ago

Red Hat is organizing DevConf.in 2018 developers' conference in Bengaluru, India on 4-5 Aug 2018.

Please see: -> https://devconf.info/in

A request for Fedora booth space was required during the CFP period via the CFP form. No such request was made.

So Fedora will likely get small space at the Red Hat booth at the venue. We need to prepare swag: stickers/pens/camera cover sliders etc.

Sticker: ~5/p * 1000 => 5,000/- INR
Pen: ~20/p * 250 => 5,000/- INR
Camera slider: ~300/p * 100 => 30,000/- INR

Considering above approximations, we may need budget provision of roughly USD: 600/- (INR ~ 42,000/-) . We can discuss more in the meeting.

Just to note: we'll also need Fedora banners.

I think this will need more discussions and @bex needs to look at our budget.

I am fairly certain there are multiple sets of these in India. Can they be found?

I think this will need more discussions and @bex needs to look at our budget.

The budget is here: https://budget.fedoraproject.org/budget/FY19/apac.html -- even without mindshare we are fine. Mindshare also has budget so this is not held on budget. Either APAC needs to get it approved or we need to open a mindshare ticket to approve this.

There is one in Pune. Since the team is coming from Pune already we can ask them to bring it along.

The meeting is next week and we don't have a lot of time to get these things ready.
Is this approval waiting because of +1s?

1) Yes, it is waiting on comments/+1's from Ambassadors. It'll greatly help if all could vote here, considering we have less time to go.

2) Does everyone agree with the mentioned swag proposal above? Ie. If you have suggestions/inputs for any other swag(Bottles/Buttons/Wrist bands/key chains etc.) Please let us know here, and we can decide which ones to go for as per the available budget.

3) How much of the swag should we produce here(in Delhi/Bengaluru/Pune) and how much could Bex(or someone) bring to DevConf.in?

  1. Plus +1 from my side then
  2. The more the merrier, but this is good enough I guess
  3. Do we have any contacts to get these things printed for cheap? I can ask in Bangalore but don't "know" them and I doubt it will be cheapest we can get

Do we have any contacts to get these things printed for cheap?

I've know for stickers/pens here. Need to find out for camera slider.

Please do find out, it'll help to compare before placing an order.

I have been using SUSE camera slider for a long time. I would love to see some from Fedora :D

If we can't get +1s here, let's ask Mindshare.

Assume no swag can be hand carried. I can tell you what I can ship you, if needed. Local production here is probably required as this ticket is so late.

Quality matters. Let's not go cheap just to go cheap.

Please do find out, it'll help to compare before placing an order.

It'd be nice to know where the prices in teh budget came from. Are they real? Can you post your comparisons?

Can you post your comparisons?

For sticker and pen it's an approximate cost from past experience. For camera slider, I checked online, cost ranges from 3 - 9 USD, for approximation I picked ~5 USD. Need to check with the vendor.

@siddharthvipul1: did you have chance to check with the vendors?

+1 for the swags and I agree with Bex - Let's not go cheap just to go cheap.

I am not sure if the full APAC threshold of +1s has been reached, but this looks like it is going to approval. @pjp can we get bids and ensure we have designs ready? I have some sticker designs I can send if needed.

I've requested for the quote, should get it soon. I plan to visit the vendor over weekend.

In the past we've printed these Fedora logo stickers. We could try new ones too if you have the designs.

Thank you.

hex stickers seem popular these days. We can also do Fedora loves .NET and Fedora Women.

Do you happen to have their designs/pdf please?

Please note, c-slide webcam covers are not available in stores here. Any suggestions for alternative to camera covers, maybe key chains OR Fedora sippers?

@pjp you have email.

Found some here -> https://pagure.io/designassets/tree/master

@pjp Fedora Design has requested that tickets be filed for any usage as those assets are not necessarily current or in the right form. Please open a ticket ASAP.

Keep in mind the budget was for the slide covers. This may limit replacement options.

Received a price quotation of Rs 280/bottle from a Red Hat vendor.

-> http://creationmagnifique.com/

He said they've been associated with RH for last 7+ yrs. He can even ship the bottles to RH Bengaluru office. Price is within budget(< Rs 300/pc).

...what do all here think?

Update: managed to negotiate it down to Rs 260/bottle now.

the designassets repo is the blessed repo so its fine to use those (so long as they are pdf cmyk format) thanks for checking @pjp

@duffy: could you please share an appropriate logo file to print on the sippers above? The vendor needs it in CD-R file format.

Thank you.
