  • Roll-Up
  • Flyer console
  • 1 high table, 2 stools/chairs
  • OSGeo flyer, FOSSGIS Flyer, OSGeo-Live Postcards from FOSSGIS e.V.
  • big OSGeo stickers - printed
  • OSGEo Flyer - printed

  • Banners:
I suggest both: OSGeo_popup and OSGeo_popup2
Ask printer/see on printer-site, whether  the PDF of SVG format is needed. Silk finish or silk matt finish for readability  (light glare during exhibitions is high)
  • Brochure:
(this is single A4 back and front)
I suggest minimum paperweight of 100 gram paper, silk or silk matt finished.
Ask printer to fold, preferably not do so yourself (bothersome and never a crips bend)
Usually I count max 100 brochures per exhibition day on average. Now, 300 will do I expect.
  • Table runner
If printer is able to print on cloth, you could order:
Please check with printer if PDF or SVG file format required
  • OSGeo-Live 10.0 on USB
    • 16GB, USB 3
    • green with OSGeo logo
    • 300 ordered, 250 USB with bootable OSGeo-Live 10.0 were given at the booth to people, 40 for the student assistents
