    Calendars 10th Feb 18 at 9:37 PM
    Has anyone put together a charity calendar?

    Our charity has a brand new Lottery funded printer copier and we are considering if we could produce a decent calendar with photographs of our village to sell next Christmas.

    I am concerned about getting the correct paper and making sure we do the spiral binding correctly.

    Getting the correct paper and doing the spiral binding correctly isn't the first step: getting the sums right is the starting point! Find out if there is a genuine demand and if so, what people are prepared to pay - and then sort out paper quality etc and see if you can produce a decent quality item without making a loss.

    What will generate excellent free publicity is having a competition for photos to use in the calendar. The 'prize', of course, is the honour and glory of seeing your name and photo in print.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Sorry, should have made that clear; we've covered the steps you suggested last year and had a good response, so confident to move forward.

    Looking for advice re the practicalities, hence the posting in the 'Crafting' forum.
