I must stop going under the Blogger radar, as I notice my last entry was way back in March of this year. Same old story - not enough hours in the day! Even camera time has taken a hit this year, plus my website updates at www.ashleycorr.com … and don't mention the amount of images and video I've got queued up. Although it's a nice problem to have, I've got more than enough to keep me busy during the fast approaching dark winter nights. Now that I've got that intro out of the way, (a.k.a - poor excuse) I'd like to announce that finally, after being an amateur photographer for almost 40 years, I actually got my arse into gear and created my first ever wall calendar. In the past I've regularly contributed to charity calendars, including St. Benedict's Hospice, Sunderland, amongst others, so it's nice to finally produce my own creation, for 2020.
A couple of weeks back I done some online research, to find out who would be able to print my calendar. I stumbled across 4 potential targets, one of which was Colour Calendars. After a very brief visit to their website I made my mind up instantly that this was the path I was going to go down. They had online design templates, which you could add your images to, as well as company log, contact information, etc. The toolbox was very straightforward and within an hour or so, my calendar was complete. Yeah, it was that simple. I made one or two last minute amendments before I submitted my proof and waited for my free calendar, to check the quality and colour accuracy. Within 48 hours my free proof was in my hands and I was more than impressed with the finished article. I went ahead and ordered 200 copies, which arrived 2 days later. They were individually shrink wrapped and Colour Calendars even added 8 extra copies, free of charge!
Once in my hands, I set about the task of advertising my 2020 calendar through Facebook. I was almost immediately inundated with orders, which was brilliant. Most of the orders were multiple purchases, which was even better. Within 48 hours I had sold 76 copies. I certainly wasn't expecting that!
Here is a few images of my calendar. If you would like to purchase any, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I offer discount for multiple purchases. The calendar is priced at £10.00 plus £2 delivery.
