Please describe the project in a few sentences

We want to buy for marketing purposes:

  • A retractable banner, which is a banner whis is contained in a metal container when not in use and then retracted, to show that Wikimeia Denmark is present at the event. WMDK participate often in events in the danish open source/open data environment as a signifikant part, but very often we have to work hard to make it clear that we are actually there. That would be a lot easier if we had access to a banner with our name on it.
  • Magnetic plates. WMDK are often hosting events in Denmark, like photoshoots. We would like to be able to tell that we are there via the "Magnetic Plates" which are square plates with our name and logo, which are magnetic and so are easily put on and taken off metallic items such as car doors or the like.
