Packaging

Some suggestions on how to burn, label, package and mail 1 disc:

  • use labels from www.worldlabel.com and they have templates for OOo/LibO
  • use 6.5 by 9.5 inch clasp envelopes
  • use slim style cases
  • keep 2-3 ready to mail
  • if purchaser lives locally, they may pick up or personal delivery may be possible


Notes

  • "CD or DVD may not be the best for some countries where heat and humidity are very high, their life is very short (sometimes less than 3 months from my own experience). In Benin or Burkina Faso for example, USB sticks are far better than CD. " -- Sophie
  • check Framasoft -- Framakey for USB-style delivery as another possible mode of delivery
  • discussion thread may be found here: http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.comp.documentation.libreoffice.marketing/1537
  • some suggestions that one could find some sponsors to advertise on the mailing envelopes to help defray the costs of S/H (Ben Horst)
