Dot the landscape with window signs

Standing out in a window, these signs are 28 cm (11 in) by 43 cm (17 in) or larger, with a blue Fedora logo centered.

  1. Get an SVG of the Fedora logo. Talk with the Design Team.
  2. Scale it in Inkscape to an appropriate size and output to a PDF
  3. Put the PDF on a USB thumb drive and take to a print-shop, such as Kinkos
  4. Purchase a roll of clear double-sided tape, preferably a kind with a peel-off cover on one side of the tape.
  5. Cut the tape to 2.5 cm/1 in pieces, leaving the cover on the other side.
  6. Apply the tape to the four corners of the page on on the printed face of the sign.
  7. Hand out to everyone who wants one; spread the idea far and wide.
  8. Apply the sign to a window by removing the peel-off tape cover and stick on the window facing outward.
  9. If you are all staying at the same hotel, you can add them to your room windows.
