Closed: Closed 2 years ago Opened 3 years ago by alyaj2a.

This is the ticket to Swag Peru

This is the wiki where is our designes.

Responding in behalf of Panama, we are OK with that. Just need to clarify a few things:
1) The produced swag will be shipped only to Peru? I ask this because I have a PO Box in Miami and is easy to send directly to Panama (maybe helps reducing costs).
2) How much swag can I ask for? Is there any limit?

Regards!

Probably not the best moment for a larger SWAG production, since we already overspent the budget for this quarter :(

This is not a bad idea at all, @athoscr.

Maybe not for this quarter but for next ones.

@alyaj2a have communicated with FCAIC so there this awareness to this. Besides he recommended that (unified swag from US).

Regards!

Oh, if this is for the next quarter, I am full +1 on this ;)

The Swag will not be shipped to Perú, I think to can shipped from EEUU to each country Latam. Let us seek the best way. :)
As for money, This we can discuss at the meeting.

Peru has the same kind of services that offer a PO Box in Miami and the stuff get delivered into Peru.

hello, for me is an great idea to plan before the next quarter begins. But some issues with these proposal is the design that be approved by the design team first and we need make wiki page with swags requeriment for all latam countries

I am going to create a wiki page. :D

This is the wiki page https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Swag_latam

Cool, I uploaded a proposal for stickers, in Nicaragua we have a stickers pack in a scuare of 10 x 10 cm than you can insert in a DVD packet:

This work great!

Can we ask for panflets?

This desing: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/File:Librito-trucos.pdf

Are a cool way to give users some basic info to work with Fedora.

Let's retake this initiative. As far as I know there is this spreadsheet which includes the address to sent the swag for each country in LATAM. The person on the spreadsheet is responsible to distribute the swag in his/her country. The swag production will be in USA and the responsible for it is Brian.

Here is the link:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1r7Syb5R0yxyzTzYBCDB9Hq1QGU2e0LqgNB5q08n6oqU/edit#gid=0

I will close similar tickets to this one to consolidate.

Do we have any news on this?

This topic should be reviewed again next meeting.

Hi @bex!

As far as I understand, there is a chance the swag for LATAM can be produced on US and then send to each and every country in LATAM.

We fill a spreadsheet with the delivery information per country. Please check it out and tell us your thoughts:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1r7Syb5R0yxyzTzYBCDB9Hq1QGU2e0LqgNB5q08n6oqU/edit#gid=0

Regards!

What are we talking about making? In principal this is fine and very possible.

If we make stickers, please use stickermule.com's standard shipping and pricing. If I can save money via a method, I will, but please budget for the full cost.

Please reformat addresses like this:

Name:
Company Name of Address, if applicable:
Street Address Line 1:
Street Address Line 2:
City:
Post Code:
State, if needed:
Country:
Phone Number:
Email Address:

This will help me when giving these details to people who don't know how addresses are formatted in every country.

@bex what do you recommend: only stickers or to produce stickers plus other stuff?

If so, I can quote it and upload it here, so you can have a clear visibility of the amount to invest.

I will reformat the addresses.

@bex what do you recommend: only stickers or to produce stickers plus other stuff?

You should only produce swag that is actually useful and will provide good value and ROI. The amount to invest should be allocated by LATAM from the LATAM budget.

I will reformat the addresses.

Thanks

Hello @potty and @bex, I updated the spreadsheet but there are more information that need to be filled like phone numbers, email and others. I will ask for these information to the swags coordinators. Regards

@alexove do you have luck with this mission?

Hello all, please I need your help to do the following things in this page ( https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Swag_latam ):
- Update all quantities of swags up to multiples of 100.
- Complete the swags of remaining countries (Bolivia, Colombia and Venezuela).

@searchsam @echevemaster @potty @richzendy @barto @asoliard @itamarjp

From Panama POV, I think we are good with the quantities.

Hello all

I just want no note some thinks about the Cheatcube desing (0), it looks like outdate:

  • Fedora have a many years using systemd so "service start" should be updated to "systemctl start"
  • Also dnf is the official package manager since some time and "yum" should be replace with "dnf"

I can propose a update since the source .svg is available.

In Nicaragua we have a desing for a small panflet with similar info (1) that can be cheaper to reproduce.

0: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Swag_latam#Designs
1: https://www.dropbox.com/s/lns2wdp968wb5bo/librito-trucos.pdf?dl=0

What is the status of this? I'd like to get this swag ordered.

Also, if the cheatcube is better than the pamphlet, let's make cheatcubes even if they cost a little more. Let's not optimize on money when our constrained resource is people and new contributors.

@searchsam @echevemaster @potty @richzendy @barto @asoliard @itamarjp

It looks like this coordination is very hard.

What about a new approach:

  1. For stickers, they are easily ordered in country-size batches. Let's have those folks who need stickers, submit a funding request. I'll ship each one as approved.

  2. For everything else. Tell me what you're thinking you want, I don't need to know how many. Assuming it isn't an unreasonable item, i'll just order a bunch and share them with other regions too.

Hello @bex, I created a ticket in the design team page requesting an update of cheatcubes, this week I will send you the quantities of swags and talk about shipment later.

Is there a reason to print stickers in a block taht requires them to be cut out? Is there a reason this is better than separately printed stickers?

Is there a reason to print stickers in a block taht requires them to be cut out? Is there a reason this is better than separately printed stickers?

Historical reason, the original idea was to have a group of stickers that were easily given together with a cd/dvd envelope. That's the why that size.
Local reason, printing companies were not cutting stickers less than 2"x2" and also less than 1,000 units. We produced fedora bubbles with cutting services, and they gave back the product in sheets of 20. From this the experience about handling stickers.
Handling reason: it is easy to count sheets of stickers than individuals and handling the sheet were less prone to be damaged. Sheets being together with laptop or notebooks, rather than smaller units in a pouch. Also one sheet of stickers put in and envelope/notepad survive better that small stickers separated.

Moving forward, I think that the size previously used no longer has sense. It will be better to have a smaller sheet with 3~5 sticker each. Big enough to be solid like a deck of playing cards when you take some for an event. But giving away less units per person.

As discussed in today's meeting we have set a new deadline.

Please fill the tables in Swag Latam Wiki before next week meeting that will be held at December 8th. In this meeting we will produce an order to print all the SWAG that can be produce and sent by @bex

Hello All,

I am an ambassador for the North America Region, and I am based out of Miami. If needed/desired, I am happy to help and personally bring swag to local PO Boxes, should you decide to use that as a shipping method. I am not currently involved in swag distribution, but wanted to let you know I am around and happy to help.

Best Regards.

I got an email from @bex with the flowing link

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Swag_latam/2018

there's a small detail that all the artwork are in spanish, and in Brazil we don't speak spanish.

I really think that we need to choose a language neutral artwork.

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Swag_latam/2018

Samuel ( @searchsam ) is working in a versi=C3=B3n for brazil but first we =
must
get the ok for the artwork, it is still a work in progress that we hope
will fibish soon.

I think we should produce based on artwork that's already done and ready for printing, and then work in a new artwork for a second batch,

Ping all

A quick calculation of the budget is USD 10,584.20

https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Swag_latam/2018#Budget

Landyards are the most expensive items and the candidates for a cut of quantities, with out landyards and sheatcues is around USD 3,784.20 with out shiping and taxes

A second batch mean a second shipping and taxes cost, I hope next week we
will have the Ok for the artwork (Brazil versi=C3=B3n included), this can s=

the issue with the buttons but the sheap cube is another history and will
nice to see some one raise its hand to help to get a pt-Br version of the
sheap cube.

Worst case, let's plan to do two rounds of reimbursements on the taxes and shipping costs rather than hold everything up.

We can not delay this any more and want to request a consensus about the swag production, please note that we can go ahead with the productions of stickers, pens, landyards, 1" buttons and 3" buttons.

If we need to drop the 2.25" button of the list this is not a issue, the art work have been aproved from desing team and we can ask a small bath of those buttons in the future for the countries that like the desing.

But we need to make a desition about cheat cubes:

  1. Go ahead with the production of all cheat cubes in english.
  2. Go ahead with the production of cheat cubes in spanish/portuguese or spanish/english.
  3. Do not produce cheat cubes at all.

If we can close this issue this week should be awesome.

I agree

I'd personally prefer localised cheat cubes. If the localised artwork is ready or very close to being ready, my vote is for (2), otherwise produce what is ready for printing and produce cheat cubes in a second batch.

The cheat cube it almost ready to go:

https://pagure.io/design/issue/568

@itamarjp do you want cheat cubes for Brasil in english or Portuguese?

@itamarjp do you want cheat cubes for Brasil in english or Portuguese?

Can you explain me the procedure to translate it to portuguese ?

@bt0dotninja I fixed some typos in cheat-cubes-users translation to pt-br.

+1 Let's not hold up other swag for cheat cubes. The production process is unrelated so we can just produce them and ship them in a separate shipment. I realize this will incur some level of increased shipping costs and may have an additional round of taxes in some countries. In both cases we have funds we can use to cover these costs.

@bex the artwork and tecnical specification are almost complete also
shipping information are available on the wiki, @duffy is helping to
produce print ready artwork to send to the suppliers, the only item
awaiting for review is the 25" button that still need a small fix, there is
something more that we can help you to get this done?

Hello @bex any update about the swag production?

@williamjmorenor I am behind on this and for that I deeply apologize.

Can you confirm that the information at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Swag_latam/2018#Budget is still accurate for quantities and what we want?

We need to put a council ticket together to formally get funding for this. @yn1v and @potty I hope you don't mind that I have started one here: https://pagure.io/Fedora-Council/tickets/issue/175

Buttons, Lanyards - still need to choose a vendor - I have several in process
Stickers - most likely stickermule
Pens either staples per ticket
cheatcubes -it sounds like they are potentially delayed in tranlsation and to be printed locally.

Those are the requerimenst per country that any representative added to the
table, I just put together all the information, is there is a need to cut
the budget for this swag it is fine I do not see any issue, cheatcubes are
the first candidate due to translations issues.

Please note that we have 2 last time Release Parties aproved in the last

@williamjmorenor based on the conversation in the pen ticket, it seems like ordering the existing pen from penguy is a better price. Is this ok? https://imagebin.ca/v/3oQJgd4WimNk

Oh, and the council approved the additional funding.

Thanks a lot @bex, Flisol will the first event to take advantage to this
batch of swag from latam.

Let's allow a lot of shipping time since this is the first time. It looks like these are starting as soon as early April. I encourage LATAM to set up a standard for FLISOL to make votes faster.

Can we close this ticket? it is 11th months old, if not I will request swag to celebrate the birthday on this ticket on May 9th :birthday:

The swag have been done. people is asking for swag for events, look like it is done here.
