From Wikimedia UK
Jump to: navigation, search
Description

Covers everything from "Introduction to Wikipedia" booklets to pin badges and Wikipedia cakes. This type of material is essential for a number of programmes. We have been able to source merchandise that is of sufficient quality that we can avoid importing material. Having this sourced locally means that we do not have to carry a large stock but we can re-order just in time. The office would like to know what you think would be useful, so please feel free to comment on the talk page, or contact Daria on daria.cybulskaatwikimedia.org.uk.

Some pictures of the merchandise already available can be found on Commons.
