HI Vinz,

We have use at our release party a lot of swags, but mostly the people
are looking for such material that helps, and brings Fedora closer to
them. People loving one page sheets, including the release notes -
because these pages can be used in multiple places/ways. (I could give
and pin out too...) We have used a LOT, and also from the tri-fold
flyers too (but a little bit that outdated now). But there was an
problem, according to the sizes (lots of flyers design are in US
metrics, not EU standard), this is why we have to create all the times
(or pay extra at print shop for editing). That makes bit harder to
print them quickly and cheaper.

I think, we need different "action" posters, where we could put out
activities, and example icon from our suggestions. With this, we could
fetch the correct material, not just the 4F slogan in parts. I mean we
have show in big size that Fedora is much more versatile, and it has
real features that the others don't. For graphics target part we
already have awesome printable stuff, but I think we need similar for
developing, and such more - to grab attention.

PS: Can we have at least an new ninja contest for new flyers, printed
material designs?
