Local print shops (often the local paper uses them) do other projects like calendars and brochures. It would be helpful if people made a call and found out how much it would cost. That way we could get a range of facts. I'd use ours but I don't like their work all the time.

I think the buying from shelters was in reference to having shelters (or other orgs) sell calendars as a fundraiser. My idea on this so far would be to order extra calendars and sell them to shelters at cost and have them mark them up at will. Or we could sell them ourselves and donate the funds to whatever organization. Just thoughts so far!

What does local printers have to do with anything..
It would be cheaper for people to check with the pricing of printing out the calendar at local shops vs. online sites as they tend to charge more. So, if we find a really cheap one, by say, Renee, we can use that one.

That would be very helpful thanks renee

OR if you have a calendar at your house just look at the back and see who the printer was. We can call from there and find out more.

I have absolutely no idea where my local (or more than likely not so local) print shop is... Don't get much call for it up here on the mountain!

I had a couple more thoughts. One was that if we do this each year we could make sure that no one got printed two years in a row. That would open it up for some more people.

I had another thought too but it's left me.

mmm pudding.

I talked to our sales rep and we do calendars every year for the school division. They actually look pretty nice but are only spot colour on the inside with the front as glossy. They order 7,000 and it cost them 6,000 BUT that's less than a $1 a calendar which would be a great profit at $20 a calendar. Obviously the more you order the cheaper it is and the less you order the more expensive but even with we paid $5 a calendar and sold them for $20 that would work.

The calender is an awesome idea. I'd be prone to saying that quality over quantity is preferred. However, there's nothing saying we can't do two dogs per month or do a large photo with a couple of smaller photos inset for each month. For instance a large horizontal photo with two or three small verticle/horizontal shots inset along one edge might be a solution.

By the way, the photos that have been posted so far are great!
