i once worked in an advertising agency, where i can possibly get rather
good prices to print banners, flyers, etc. i just need them in digital
form. however transportation by plane is not so easy, if it's a lot.
would it be an option to send them to somebody whos going by

if we get some funds for cds and ink from the foundaiton, i can both
burn and prettify (i.e. print directly on them). i guess 100 would be a
good number for the start?
i will request funds as soon as we've come up with a list of things we
need. (so waiting for rbu/sping/hollow to respond in the first place now).
