Hey all! I am also happy to provide some printing service here at the Foundation, if I get enough lead time to produce stuff.
We have a 24" epson roll printer which we most recently used to make some pretty awesome banners (designed by David Peters who also did our recent annual report). If you were at the Wikipedia 10 party in SF you saw these: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Wikipedia_10_SF_IMG_9881.JPG http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:WP10_San_Francisco_party.jpg I can reprint any of these: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Wikipedia_10_banners OR I can print some fresh stuff, but whatever you want would need to be printed fairly quickly. The banner dimensions are 24" wide, and we can go pretty long - well over 10ft. They can take up a lot of space. You could put a few of the vertical banners up if you have the fence backing again, or make a table runner. I know you'll want the WP logo and wordmark, which I can also make 24" x 24" versions of. Let me know what you think! jay On May 9, 2011, at 8:51 PM, phoebe ayers wrote: > Hi SF wikimedia, > > based on our experiences of the past few years, I have started a list of all > the supplies we will need.
