I just joined the list today, so forgive me if I shouldn't step into a
conversation this way.  I have a DVD media printer, and could make small DVD

work, but that won't help this project.  I am in Maryland.

Thanks for the offer.  I live in NYS on the border of PA.  Elmira, NY

I use the thin DVD cases that have the clear plastic case cover sleeve, from You can get a 100-pack for about $20. I can get a 10-pack locally for about $10 to $15.

I rather use these for handing out these DVD, since it gives me a cover to have some info on it. Plus, the normal jewel cases are not as impressive as getting a DVD case.

I have a guy in my building that has such a printer, but he has not committed to print some for me. Hopefully I will be able to get to do that, and then I will buy the printable DVD media.

I buy 50-packs of generic DVDs and CDs locally for about $12, but no one sells the printable media locally anymore. I buy the jewel cases in 25 packs for about $4 locally as well.

The big thing now is to get people out there to have the ability to get a copy of the DVD. There are still people out there what do not have the bandwidth, or have dial-up access, so they realistically cannot download the ISO to make their own DVDs. We, as a whole group, need to look into that process. Simply having a disk that has the LibreOffice software, and many of the language help files, is enough for many people. The NA Community DVD Project is giving them everything they might need as well, like documentation, extensions, dictionaries, templates, and artwork. This changes the CD to a DVD for the needed room for all of the "extras" added to the LibreOffice software.

Also, it would be nice for people who are going to the NA events to be able to take our DVD with them, in a generic jewel case or DVD case, so that our work gets to the people who it was meant to go to.

There needs to be a push for a marketing plan for LibreOffice in North America. We need to have some plan for what is used for table items and handouts at the expos, as well as what is given to people as free handouts to local groups and organizations. Most poeple do not have much experience in the field of marketing. I owned a business, so I have some ideas, but I am not an expert.
