    Well, Kim and I have already recieved enough pics to safely say that the calendar project is for sure a go this year. In fact, we're gonna have a REALLY tough time picking this year's winners because there are so many awesome pics to choose from. That being said, I'm still encouraging those of you who are still planning to submit a pic to do so. Remember, it's not over till it's over.

    On top of that, I have some really cool news. Both Stephen from ORD and Jordan from Northwest Fab have agreed to sponsor the calendar this year. As a result, we will be raffling off a $50 gift certificate from each Vendor.:woot: Everyone who buys a calendar will get their name entered in a draw- one draw per calendar. So, if you buy 2 calendars, you will get 2 chances to win. A big thanks goes out to both guys for supporting this project!!!! :bow: :bow:

    Anyhow, Kim is putting the finishing touches on the PayPal setup, and we should be ready to start pre-selling the calendars in the next few days. I'm pretty sure we'll be selling them for about $17 USD a unit. I will let all of you know when things are up and running.

    Have you ever thought about putting smaller pictures in the spaces where there are empty days with no dates. Like I'm thinking one or two per month. It's just a thought; I really enjoy the calendars that you and Kim produce.

    Thanks for all the hard work from the Canmore Clan!

    And thanks to ORD & NWF, too!

    The only problem with your idea is that we run the "date" side of the calendar page first through the black and white machine, and then the "picture" side through the color machine. Having a couple of thumbnails in the empty "date" spaces would mean an extra pass through the color machine, and would also require some VERY meticulous setup to avoid going over the lines.

    If we were producing 10,000 calendars, it would be easy, as we be using a full color press for the entire run. But running a couple of hundred units makes the color press too cost-prohibitive.

    We're tossing around a collage idea for the back page right now, but we'll have to wait and see if it will work out.

    Anyhow, keep the suggestions coming!!! :thumb:
