2008 calendar

I've wanted to make a calendar with my photos for awhile. I have been trying to figure out how I want to print it, and how it could be displayed (for cheap). My first attempt is twelve 4x6 pictures, so one page per month. I've propped them up on a photo easel, which I found at a thrift store a long time ago. What I would really like to do is have it wire/coil bound across the top, like most calendars. But I haven't priced that out yet.

Staples does coil binding. I don't know what the cost is. I really enjoy your photography.

I'd like one of your calendars for our office.

PS Obviously Kathy doesn't know how you feel about Staples. You better tell her.

Hey, you should totally sell these! I would definitely purchase a couple!

Thanks for all the comments, I like getting comments!

I think I'm looking for wire binding (as opposed to the plastic binding that Staples does, unless they've added wire binding recently). I think Kinko's has wire binding. At least, I've had things wire bound there a few years ago.

In my experience, Staples services are hit and miss depending on who is working at Staples. I haven't had bad experiences with anyone in particular, it's just been a bit of a gamble for me. I wouldn't use Staples if something was important, or if I needed something at a particular time. I'd rather photocopy at a gas station.

Wire would be much more beautiful than plastic coils. I don't do much at Stapels except buy paper. Electronics, for exapmple, London Drug hands down!

Good luck with your calanders.
