Hi Suchith,

It took a while for me to dig out this information, but this is the company
that we used for FOSS4G 2013:

Total cost for 800 units - DVD - in clear plastic wallet
* Inkjet colour = £290
* Inject colour with waterproof coating = £520
* Thermal colour = £636

For reliable USB drives, at Astun we use a company called USB2U and we go
for this model:

Twister USB 3.0 Flash Drive 8GB - White

These seem to come in at around £4.12 per item but I don't know how many we
buy at a time to get that rate.

Hope that helps
