Description

hello,

Can someone please make a mailer that the free media program could use to send it's media in? We already have one[1], but it isn't very generic (we need one that is not region specific). The outside of the mailer could be the sender's, receiver's address(es) and fedora logo etc., while the inside could have some info? (like a few important fedora related links maybe?)

Thanks, Ankur

I've made some sort of mailer in a few hours hacking/learning Inkscape session.

hello,

The Free media form for the month of October is going to open shortly. Would it be possible to have the mailer ready in a few days? We can announce it and people can begin using it from this month itself then :)

Can we also have a "black and white" version of the mailer please, it will be a little more economical to print.

Thank you for accepting this ticket.

regards, Ankur

Hello,

Thank you! It looks great! Would it be possible to add a URL someplace on it? Maybe inside the envelope? A URL for the fedoraproject, or for the communicate page on the wiki would be nice since folks who receive the media will then know where to seek help.

Most of the contributors use normal mail (not air mail) to send the media. Can the airmail sticker be made optional (This issue is not very important)

Thanks, Ankur

Replying to ankursinha:

Thanks for your comments, I'm glad you like the preliminary design. The URL was there from the beginning (unless I had the wrong one). Read the note on the rear side ... somewhere near the end.

As per the "Air Mail" label, I'd say, it depends on the agreed format for the artwork. If we'll be using SVG then it really doesn't matter, the Contributor could delete that bit -- OR --- to make it look intentional, I'll shift that to a layer that can be switched off. However, if we'll be publishing formats like PDF, that's another story (... but its usually SVG anyway)

Regards Twohot

I like better the option B. There is one important change being implemented. Fron F14 onward freemedia will ship Live CD of KDE Spin. So I think that it should be included in the options on the envelope.

Thanks for such nice work.

Okay (making this official)

Here is the latest on the Mailer Design after the Design team critiques. I think this should be it. Let me know if there are any more issues:

Hello!!

This look great!

Thank you for working on this. I'll go show these off to the free media group. I personally don't think there are any new changes to be made, but I'll let the free media group have a look too before closing the ticket.

Thanks!!! Ankur

No updates from free media group, assuming all is well. I'm going to close the ticket; please reopen if the free media group has any issues.

Fabulous job twohot, thank you so much for such a thorough and thoughtful design!
