24 month calendar would allow for more photos and not jeopardize the quality.

I thought about a 24 month calendar after I read Andrews post.

Good and bad points.... It would fit more dogs, but then we wouldn't give a chance to do a 2nd calendar the year after... for current members then?

I do really like the idea of the 13 month calendar and a collage on front and/or in the middle... I think the beginning of July for photo deadline would give plenty of time to get photos in.... then we would have to do voting done by August.... Depending on how many photos we get, they might all fit on collages for Dec 2007... and a middle pull out poster? Then the winners could each get a month? Maybe a couple winners per month like already talked about.... Hmmmmm

Yeah. 24-month would cost more too and since we don't know how it's going to go maybe we can think about that for the next year... ?

Now I know this isn't going to be popular but what about doing the pages (except cover and insert) in black and white? This will save a LOT of money but we will definitely have to go with quality images as weaker ones won't hold their own on black and white.

I personally love black and white photos.... would it still be glossy? Like they would use on color pages? I understand the whole calendar would be B&W not just the photos...well except for the cover and insert....

Doesn't matter to me.... Opinions?

From what I know about printing it wouldn't be glossy. The cover would be. And the insert. But the months would probably just be a high quality paper.

Black and white would be great.

What about a 16 month calendar?

Just a thought...

We could do one picture as the whole background and then do other pics inset, as Andrew suggested.

Looking at the photos now (I know we'll get more in, but go with it) there are a few water photos. Chose one as the background and then all of the other water photos could be inset.

There are some action/agility shots, take one as the background and do others of the same inset.

We can do one of smiles.. one of goofy faces.. one of sleepy pics/faces.. the options are nearly endless.

That would be cool. We can even have them done kind of as a photo reel. Keyodie does that I think.

Thanks, Saje. I'm honored.

Just a couple of thoughts:

-I'd suggest sticking with a 13 or 14 month calender to keep cost down and to allow for new photography for the following year.

-As for colour vs. b&w, it might be better to see what you have to work with closer to printing time and make a final decision then. B&W may be good with a full page shot, but smaller insets/collages might get lost if there's no colour to help them stand out.

Let me check with Leslie about how she does her magazine. The glossy texture is from printing on a hard-coated stock, so the price may not be all that prohibitive according to what kind of printing house is employed. The method for using the coated stock just requires a press with a specific type of heat lamp as the printed pages come off the line. A printer who does a lot of calendars and photography heavy printing jobs will be using that sort of set-up anyway.
