Is It That Time of Year Again?

I know you don’t want to hear about it. Neither do I really. It is far too early to think about Christmas. *eeeeeeek* There you have it. I have used the C-word. And yet, planning is everything when it comes to Christmas. And think about it – we, as photographers, have a whole host of potential Chrimbo pressies at our fingertips.
Is that too gloomy for a calendar cover?
Ok, I admit, not everyone wants to have a artsy-fartsy print of a deserted carpark in a Mid-Western industrial estate on their wall. But there’s so many great things you can do with photographs which even non-visual people will appreciate. Mousepads, t-shirts, mugs – all adorned. Hey, I have even seen a site somewhere where you can have your image of choice printed on a pair of flipflops. Great – just imagine: Your mum and dad on left and right sole respectively. Well, not a joke for everyone. I guess, you could – quite literally – put your foot in it.
So for the slightly more conventional gift-bearing photographer, maybe a personalised calendar is the way to go? I make them every year and give them to my folks. Always to much success. Yeah right, I know, they are my parents, of course they love everything I do. But hey, you’ve got to choose wisely who you give your hand-made, once-off pressies to! Mind you, I have been dithering and fuseling and postponing sending off that final order for several weeks now. But today it is going out!

    i'm doing personalized calendars too! but, i do them the 'old fashioned' way; i buy an 'empty' calendar, get the photos printed and then add each one using a double sided photo tape. finally, i write comments 🙂
