I'm not to keen on "registering" and having my information
shared with a lot of people

or having you sell your mailing list


how about explaining in a little detail why we have to
have an account with you...i.e. become a member

Not flaming you...but you are a new entity to me ...you just
come out of nowhere and want me to be a member...of what?

A few other sites do their own too. If we can help with Susan's, we'd be more than happy to. We have our own printing company so if these other calendars are just going to be up on CafePress or something for $20 a pop, we could print and sell them for a lot less.

Either way, we're not trying to force this on anyone. We do pay to support the forum so hopefully people recognize that.
Thanks Mike and Bob for the support!

The calendar folks can do their thing and I can do mine.

The thanks goes out to the participants like yourself for making our calendars the way they are. If I recall correctly, you were the first one to upload in our Solstice contest; a big cheers to you.

Got mine on Christmas Eve even though I has only ordered it earlier in the week. Thanks for the fast shipping. I was able to have it under the tree for my husband Christmas morning! His jacket didn't make it in time so at least there was something w Sol there for him. Sorry I saw the contest too late.
Hoping to remember to submit a photo for the 2012. That would be a real nice calendar for him if it had our car in it.

Happy & safe holidays to all!

These calendar don't work for priority mail. They are too big. We'd have to use a priority mail box, which the calendar only fit in on an angle. Would have got mangled during shipping.

We had to order custom stay flats and send these USPS First Class Parcel. Most companies make money on shipping, we are barely breaking even.
It's really a good and bad thing. We chose 9.5" x 13.5" for a few reasons, but the main being it's a nice big size for a wall calendar. The bad thing is how we have to ship them.

Shipping method is something we spent a lot of time on even met with 2 postal reps at our fulfillment house. This was the cheapest way to send these wide, oversized calendars. Something we may have to re-evaluate though for next year!!!

Happy New Year to everyone.

Now as for the little guy running around like I am crazy because I believe in saving a buck on shipping cost…hmmm what I wonder about is why everyone here can’t spend $40.00 dollars for a life membership? It helps the forum stay alive!!! Also why some people join the forum for free and then advertise a business in their signature…hmmmmmmmm who’s really saving a few bucks around here???


Talk about an inappropriate response. You jump to ill advised conclusions a lot don't you?
