Swag Packs

Currently, Cami and Josepha have the ability to send swag packs to WCs and meetups: 100 or 200-count packs of mixed stickers and buttons, or 100-packs of lanyards. I’d like to propose some changes.

First! all the superdeputies will now be able to ship swag and lanyards to the WordCamps and meetups they are supporting. That’s @brandondove, @kcristiano, @adityakane, @karenalma, @mayukojpn (plus Cami, Josepha, Andrea, and me). Yay for speedier swag.

Second! Right now stuff is packed like this:

  • 200 buttons and stickers (each, in one shipment)
  • 100 buttons and stickers (each, in one shipment)
  • 100 lanyards

I propose that we change our swag options to be packs of 250 and 500 rather than 100 and 200. Even a small WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. or a meetupMeetup All local/regional gatherings that are officially a part of the WordPress world but are not WordCamps are organized through https://www.meetup.com/. A meetup is typically a chance for local WordPress users to get together and share new ideas and seek help from one another. Searching for ‘WordPress’ on meetup.com will help you find options in your area. will go through 250 pretty easily. Since lanyards aren’t likely to get used up or distributed over the year at meetups, there’s no reason to send more than they need, so sticking with 100-packs makes sense.

What do y’all think?

(This is purely about packaging. What designs should be included will be coming up in the near future.)
