Help needed to get info. on bulk suppliers of OSGeo Live USB/DVDs

Suchith Anand
Hi all,

This is a request for help. I am discussing ideas with GODAN colleagues on how to expand ideas for AgriGIS Capacity Development and I have put forward suggestion to provide OSGeo Live USBs/DVDs for the training programs etc. This will ensure the participants have in addition to the training all the free and open geo tools and sample open geodata to take away and be empowered.

I remember some years back for OSGIS conferences in Nottingham, I arranged OSGeoLive DVDs but I don’t now remember details of the suppliers. Could I request if you have contacts of reliable suppliers (ideally in the UK), that I can contact to get quotes for bulk suppliers on the price of the flash drives (8GB) and DVDs with  OSGeoLive and GODAN logos and all content loaded (download from https://live.osgeo.org/en/download.html  )  and checked for  all USBs/DVDs supplied.

I hope once we do this for few training programs we will be able to expand the idea for the future. Please email me at [hidden email]    the contact details of USB/DVD suppliers who can do this, so I can request quotes. Thanks in advance for your help.

Best wishes,

Suchith

Re: Help needed to get info. on bulk suppliers of OSGeo Live USB/DVDs

Hi Suchith,

It took a while for me to dig out this information, but this is the company that we used for FOSS4G 2013:

Total cost for 800 units - DVD - in clear plastic wallet
* Inkjet colour = £290
* Inject colour with waterproof coating = £520
* Thermal colour = £636

For reliable USB drives, at Astun we use a company called USB2U and we go for this model:


Twister USB 3.0 Flash Drive 8GB - White

These seem to come in at around £4.12 per item but I don't know how many we buy at a time to get that rate.

Hope that helps

Jo
