I love your program and tell everyone about it. I don’t know if
you are located here in Denver, but we have an annual event that
you may be interested in attending and placing a free booth to
promote your programs. All we ask in return is that if you are
ever in need of imprinted merchandise such as t-shirts, pens, mugs,
etc., that you call on us and let us help you. I’ve done products
for Sun Microsystems over the years, and would be happy to help you
Thanks! There are actually a couple of OOo people in Denver (or
thereabouts), including Solveig Haugland, who has written some of the
leading books on OOo. I'm cc'ing her here.
Our company sells Promotional and Branding Products and we invite
all of our customer’s, who consist of Buyer’s and Marketing
Personnel for Large and Small Companies, to attend our annual BBQ
held in our parking lot. We also invite several of our Large
Suppliers to set up booths with Products so our clients can see a
small representation of other Products we offer, as well as it
gives them opportunities to speak with Reps from those companies to
get a better idea how things work on our end to get things through
the supply chain. Reps from Big names like Hanes, BIC, Jerzees,
etc., set up booths with samples. Attendance is approx 300-400
decision makers who purchase and recommend key products for their
businesses, organizations, and events.
Thanks for the info. I'm a little uncertain what the event is... Do
you have a URL for it? I looked at your company's URL, and it's quite
nice, and I--and I'm sure I speak for others--appreciate that you
In cases where companies/orgs. give us free booths and where the
company or organization is not objectionable, then if there are
locals who want to staff a booth and represent OOo, there is no
problem. I can see about sending the banner and what flyers we have,
but getting cdroms and equipment on which to demonstrate the
application is usually up to the booth staffer. We rely greatly on
the kindness of strangers, aka, the community :-)
The reason I like your software is that it is very easy to use and
being that our line of work constantly needs to edit and change
artwork for people’s logo’s and messages that will be imprinted
onto multiple products, I don’t have to go to school to learn an a
hard program such as Illustrator or pay $50 per hour in art charges
for someone else to edit the artwork I need for these projects.
Your Draw Program does this simply and rapidly and saves me a lot
Just the same, when clients send so many different files that I may
not have a program installed to open it in, Open Office can usually
translate these files so at least they are readable.
The event is Friday, July 21, 2006 from 4:30-10:30. Great Food,
Beer, Soda, and Networking.
Please let me know if you all are interested in attending.
I leave that to Solveig....
