Re: [Ambassadors] Fedora case badges for the WHOLE WORLD

Just a question now that I see this numbers, and an example to explain myself better:

Have you ever consider make a "marketing store" not only to sell, but also to do all this marketing things on big amounts with Regions Budget and so it, get a better price and bigger amount? I know most of every region budget is for marketing items, so why don't we produce them in a single location, to: make more, make it cheaper?

1.- Software Freedom Day:
They produce everything (t-shirts, stickers, media, plates... everything) in China and send them with massive shipping to all over the world. First 5 HUGE shipments get to main continents, and from there, local contacts deliver all material.

2.- Flisol:
We buy everything in a single place of our country and deliver it to all our cities (get's really cheaper. We save almost 40% and buy more great stuff)


Might this be a good idea? has been tried before without success?? 

Only ideas, hope to help

Nice day

Just to add some concrete numbers so informed decision making can occur.

The first 1,000 case badges cost $1,000, so $1 each. Most of this is
the setup cost for the run. Every 1,000 case badges there after is
$180, so the price drops to 0.18 per badge. Unfortunately it doesn't
seem to drop any lower from there.

This means we could order 11,000 case badges for $2,800 (25.45 cents
each); 20,000 for $4,420 (22.1 cents each); and 50,000 for $9,820
(19.6 cents each).
While those numbers seem big, globaly if we split that across APAC,
EMEA, LATAM, and NA, it's a lot more affordable.

The quality on these case badges is quite honestly second to none. I
have literally not seen anything that comes close to comparing
anywhere. They are also incredibly popular. In NA we burned through
3000 in a couple of months.
