2014 Calendars

Posted by: Heather Applegate on 08/02/2013 - 9:12 AM

It's that time of year again... people are starting to look for 2014 calendars already! Post a link or one of the images from your theme if you're doing one.

Not sure if the pixels site might carry these, but I've got my own made again this year - first batch are in the mail.
I've actually done a kickstarter to fund this one - so far 55% funded :) I know some people in here wanted to know when I was coming out with the next Marshmallow calendar.

And I did a little video to promote it.

I do not have pics yet. I do a calendar every year for a select group of family and friends. This year we plan 12 recipes (gluten free) along with my art.

Not for this year I believe so am going to go out on a limb and suggest people get them from other sites like Lulu

I been think about this but instead of using kickstarter I would just upload to one of those POD sites if anyone wanted to buy it.

I made 2 through Lulu:

It is the first time I am making calendars. :)

I've got one on Lulu - and might put one on Redbubble - but I sell so many more and can sell them cheaper with a larger profit if I get them printed and sell on my own.

Do you mean a local printer?

 

Posted by: Heather Applegate on 08/02/2013 - 10:45 AM

I don't use a local printer - far too expensive.
I use coupons and promo codes and get them early from wherever has the best deal at the time.

The cheapest way to go is someplace like Zazzle, but local printers do a great job if you need 25 or more. It is running close to the deadline for getting them for shows in late October or November. If you have a following and think you can sell them at Art Shows a local printer may be the answer. If you are giving them to friends and relatives you can get a good price and quick service locally.

I use Park Row Printing located in Plantation FL.

Not sure, but doesn't Staples do calendars for customer submitted work?

 

Posted by: Suzanne Powers on 09/18/2013 - 5:27 PM

Heather, great light-filled shots of those little marshmallow fellows, humorous and charming! Marcio your feet, legs and trees in B&W are wonderful, beautifully done! Your projects are professional looking, I don't blame you for wanting to show them off.

Thanks Suzanne and Mary Ellen... I've already "sold" 42 of them via my kickstarter that got way overfunded (203% funded...)
I sell mine in my Etsy shop.

I'm not saying how much I pay for each of mine, but it's well under anything Harry just listed. If people want details they can message me.

One last question, are wall calendars what you do? Certainly from art presentation the best, but is it as functional for buyers as say a desk calendar.

I also noticed that there is a border or full-bleed option. Since I'm a painter and not a photographer wondering if the border looks more framed?

Your thoughts?

I do wall calendars, I might do desk calendars next year, but I've not had anyone ask for them yet. Standard size wall calendar.
I just prefer how my stuff looks "framed" with the colors. If I was doing it with paintings, I'd probably just pick a black or white border - to me it just looks more polished than a full bleed.

I just tried to make a calendar on Zazzle. I've always created my own via InDesign so it was kind of weird and cumbersome to do it online. The display is really tiny on Zazzle and there's no grid (that I could find) to help make things line up correctly. Anyway, here's my first attempt -
