Yes, quite.

I said I'd give some thought to flyers.  Needless to say, since then 
I've been completely rushed off my feet trying to make Rosegarden 
safe to demo to people who actually know shit about audio, and I've 
had time to do very little.

I did look around for some more quotes and establish that getting 
short runs of more than one design of flyer printed is indeed vastly 
more expensive than getting longer runs of one design.  For example, 
Azimuth Print quoted me over £260 (plus VAT) for 1000 each of four A6 
designs single-sided on 150gsm, compared to £120 for 5000 of a single 
design double-sided on 300gsm.

Given that we don't actually have fancy colour designs ready anyway, I 
had considered whether to instead do a set of four or so mono A6 
sheets each with one "screed", i.e. short bit of plain text espousing 
some aspect of the software in a vaguely marketing-y style.  Without 
screenshots, these could be simply laser printed on high-quality 
paper (I have a laser printer and a new cartridge is cheaper than a 
run of flyers...) and guillotined up at the local print shop.  Here 
is an example with two possible screeds:


Let me know what you think (most urgently of course with regard to any 
factual errors, but also whether too dull, too worthy, not worthy 
enough etc).

I'd probably re-do a short run of the existing Rosegarden colour flyer 
too, but that would be a bit separate.

(I'm also not quite sure what material we're expecting from AGNULA?)
