Friday marks fall, the Autumn equinox, in North America, October 15th ends my summer season at Grand Canyon, and I’m working on the 2018 photo calendar. This is the second round of images to choose from. Look for the first round here. I plan to put out one more set of choices before final selection.
Two years ago a printer in Kanab printed six calendars with my photos for Christmas gifts. The recipients seemed to like it.
Last year I got cheap and printed six calendars on my antique HP printer and that was a nightmare I won’t do again.
Many of you voiced an interest in purchasing a calendar with my photos.
So I’d like your help deciding which photos, what size calendar (8.5×11 or 5.5×8.5), and how much you’re willing to pay. Also suggestions are much appreciated.
Over the last 12 months while choosing photos for blog posts, processing, and labeling I’ve picked many of my favorites and put them in the 2018 photo calendar file. Should I just pick photos taken in the last 12 months? Do you have or remember any particular favorites over the last nine years of my blogging or Facebook posts?
In the next week or so I’ll be sharing a few of my favorites and asking for you to weigh in. Please choose up to eight of your favorites from this second round by leaving their numbers in a comment below. First round selections are still open.
I’m looking for quality printing at a reasonable price. If any of you have used online printing companies feel free to make a suggestion. It’s difficult to know the quality of prints without paying to print and I’m looking for a bulk print price. Maybe 50 to 100 copies depending on how many I think I can sell. (Feel free to help me out here by sharing this post.)
So how many do you want to pre-order with no money down? I’ll start a list and let you know when the calendar is available for shipping. You might want to think Christmas presents.
Of course I know you can pick up free calendars from various businesses you frequent, or not. But if you’d like to look at some of my best (so far) for the next year and help support a starving Park Ranger/photographer/traveler I would much appreciate it.
Thank you for your input and being faithful readers. To see the previous choices see the first post.
