Default need logo to produce Fedora Ballons for events

We are wanting to produce some ballons for events in which ambassadors
are attending.

http://www.fastballoons.com/main.php?type=cat&catid=4
we are thinking 12" ballon Perl White with blue ink

since this media (and vender) only seem to support mono printing this
could be a problem with the trademark guidelines.

What can we do to make these happen to help support Fedora at shows?

Based on the IRC discussion, Ben needs a *monochrome* version of the
logo for cheap printing, which is against the logo usage guidelines.
Using only the wordmark would be, IMO, not pretty enough, the price for
color printing is prohibitive.

I think we may try to use some type of dithering to emulate more than
one color, but not sure a) if we want to allow such usage b) the printer
will be capable.

So more than one color is okay just a bit more expensive (I believe Ben
mentioned $0.25 vs $0.60 per balloon.)

I created a PickPic page for the project:
http://django.parcodiyellowstone.it/pickpic/viewimg/?project_id=113

One idea is to do half the balloons one color / just the Fedora logo,
the other half have the full logo. eg

http://tatica.fedorapeople.org/Fedora_Artwork/white-baloon.jpg

I personally think either is fine in terms of cost and in my head
thought the logo would be far nicer.

Having looked at these I find myself actually more attracted to the
non-logo version though and think the logo will likely show distortion
more.

Cool, I produced a print-ready PDF according to the vendor's specs using
Tatica's mockup:

Mo, tatica, nicu - thank you all very much for helping out so fast.
Art is often one of our bottlenecks and you really rock.
