Let’s be clear – I really, really like those and I immediately asked myself – is it possible to make those low-resolution images(they were actually really low quality!) into a real badges? I believe you can see where this is going, but before that, I want to say a huge “I am sorry” to Kendal, our host this time, because I am really about to go a bit (but just a bit) off topic. I am not going to share with you what is the best SQL Server SWAG I received, but what is the best I do give away on my sessions or during my classes.
So I decided to find a way and make this really low quality images into badges(I believe their resolution was something like 17×17 pixels?). I started searching for a company that can do the magic for me, but it was hard. For some reason, here in Sofia (our capital in Bulgaria), there are not that many companies that can help you with a request like this. Surprisingly, I found one (that already went bankrupt) that was able to help, but in order for them to be able to create badges from those .jpegs that I sent them, they needed to vectorize them first. They managed to do that and here are the results:
These are my favourite SQL Server SWAGs! It also seems that all the folks that received one from me already also like them quite a lot! I personally wear one on my bag too!
So, Kendal, thank you for hosting #47 and again – I am really sorry! I hope that the community will love those though! 🙂
