First, I want to thank everyone who bought a calendar. For a while there, I was hiking to the post office with an armload two or three times a week. Awesome! Now, since it's nearly March and I haven't sold one in weeks, I think it's time for a price drop. I'm also going to start taking some apart and putting the individual prints (sans calendar grids) up on Etsy.
I definitely want to do another calendar this year, but there are several things I've learned from doing this one:
- Make it smaller!
- When deciding the size, have shipping envelope sizes in mind. Keep the size and weight within First Class postage regulations.
- Print on lighter paper, and ask my printer to please not surprise me with an upgrade to 100# cover stock.
- Have several other people proofread it so I don't end up with hilarious typos like February 34th. Ahem.
- Or better yet, make it a perpetual calendar. Time-sensitivity issue solved.
