Agreed, I was watching the program on the Scilly Isles last night where the
new radio station had gone to Milan to get its Jingles recorded at a
fraction of the price compared to the UK.
If we can get the OSM community to help with these tasks to get best value
for money (or perhaps in this case more posters for the money) then that's
got to be good policy? Although I'd perhaps draw the line if the carbon
footprint of doing so was ludicrous.
Incidentally, I'm going to shortly produce a flyer for the Birmingham
mapping party in April, so I'm in the market for printing quotes too.
