WordPress’ WordCamp in Madrid
On the 22nd and 23rd April, Madrid hosted one of WordPress’ notorious WordCamp events.
All of us have visited a WordPress powered site, in fact, due to it’s clean, easy-to-use software, many of us have our own WordPress site. In fact, it powers over 75 million sites on the web, for free. Naturally, the software has created quite the community, all keen to learn and share their tech knowledge. The very well-attended event known as a ‘WordCamp’ was born in 2006 in San Francisco and has since been held all around the world at various times throughout the year.
Everyone from casual users to core developers participate, share ideas, and get to know each other.
WordPress contacted us in the weeks running up to the WordCamp event as they needed 300 personalised T-Shirts with 2 designs to be used as giveaways and to be worn by the staff.
As it was a large order, screen printing was the best option for the printed T-Shirts as it comes out much cheaper than other printing techniques. They opted for royal blue and red T-Shirts with the logo printed on the front so that those wearing them and the stand would be easy visible to all the attendees.
People came from all over Spain and further afield to take part in Madrid’s WordCamp. It was the perfect place for startups, developers, bloggers and businesses to network, discover, and generally geek-out whilst picking up a few freebies on the way.
The personalised printed T-Shirts were the perfect promotional product to offer as those who picked them up (most likely almost all the attendees) would put them on and promote the event and the free CMS, WordPress.
The event was a huge success and the client was delighted with the printing and delivery services that we were able to offer.
“We were really happy with Garment Printing T-Shirts. They did a very good job!”
