Ordered 300 calendars from printingcenterusa.com again.
They had a 250 off coupon when spending $1000 so after shipping and tax, I ended up spending $2.76 each.
Waiting on a hard proof before I start accepting orders.
Every business and household in Duluth should have one of those hanging.
Stupidity angers me.
If it weren't for the last minute, nothing would get done.
Nice Shawn. I have a few more images to process/wade through then I need to cull mine and get going. Luckily I print my own so I can wait as long as I like but I might try to sell some this year as well (I've always just done them as gifts).
Going with http://www.printingcenterusa.com/che...endar-printing again, they have produced some amazing calendars for me and they are consistent year after year. Great quality.
I need to order some this year... Might call my old work? Or your source looks good Shawn.
so yeah, just spend 4+ hours yesterday and now another 2 today getting all the PS work done for mine... I'm using printingcenterusa.com who has crazy good prices AND the options I prefer from when I did these myself (drilled, saddlestiched, UC text guts and a gloss cover etc). I think with a 20% discount it ended up being $225 shipped for 50 calendars? It's ULing a 495mb file now...
DLed one of their templates. Front cover, back cover and the inside of the back opening of the saddle stitch are all my own design. I use their calendar layout then for each image I make my images have a white bar at the bottom so the 3:2 image isn't cropped to fit on an 8.5x11 page. I then put text under the image with the location name.
With those prices I'm going for 100 at least next year and to wrap them up in October so I can sell them. I've never bothered selling before because I feel "full price" has to be around $15 and "sale price" needs to be around $10. Add in shipping and you're losing money in a hurry normally. But with these being under $5 it might work next year...
