Love the photos!
Isabella Love wrote:Very sweet! Are the photos from your own farm? I love the idea. I hope you sell a ton! I'm thinking about getting one but I don't trust my mail service right now...I'm still waiting on a package lost somewhere in the USPS mail---I'm in Florida, it shipped from Florida, and it's now in Puerto Rico, according to the tracking number. Shoulda been here weeks ago. -_-
Camilla Fitzgerald wrote:I recently heard a report on Public Radio here in the States about a very popular trend on Instagram called Cottage Core. It's for all things nostalgic about county life. That would be a good place to advertise and perhaps sent people to your Etsy page. Your calendar is very nice.
Theresa Bush wrote:The calendar is great! The pictures are awesome. I think there are some great ideas in here for you... what I was thinking (add in shipping/tax) was already mentioned. The other thing is you might want to put price in USD as well for those who don't do the math. Best of luck. I'm sure they'll sell. Christmas is coming.

Mike Feddersen wrote:Hi Raven,
I just placed an order for one of your calendars, that shipping and handling is a sticker-shock-moment.
I was thinking of sending one to each of my four sisters, two in Iowa, two in Arizona, but at 40 dollars for shipping.... Not too sure now.
You evidently need a method of getting orders fulfilled on this side of the border.

Anyways, Raven, this is a gorgeous product and your photos are wonderful! The font choice for the titles are especially beautiful. Now, if I may make my design snob suggestion: The days and numbers need a font that is just as lovely. I know you probably picked Calibri for its legibility, but to me, it makes it feel less special/considered since it's a default font for Microsoft Office/Windows. There are other sans-serif fonts that could compliment the design really well, and carrying the same font throughout the headers and numbers could also work. I know you're probably not here to get design notes (because the worst thing on the planet is design by committee) but I just wanted to put my two cents out there for next time, since I think it's a lovely item!

This next bit is a big disappointment to me. I know it doesn't affect the useability of the calendar, but it grates against my aesthetic sensibilities.
The printer plastered its logo on the back of every single page.
At that price, I can see why. They get me to pay to advertise for them. =
At the time of writing this, there are only 14 left to sell. I don't think I'll be printing any more as I figure I should be sold out by Christmas.

When it is used for evil, then watch out! When it is used for good, then things are much nicer. Like this tiny ad:
