Any news on a 2016 Calender? smile.gif


+1!


Lil-Joe101 few days ago rang the bell when messaged me so I looked after many weeks here again (yea shame on me). In terms of calendar I found guys above asking about is. So here it is:

- I have no issues take control in this as previous years but only under the same rules (as before) = decent picture/pictures at minimum resolution 3508x2480 pixles
- Price assumption? I do not know... Not checked prices at all. Last year we got $16 shipped worldwide. The worst guess is +10% to last year price ($16-19 total?). Will make clear when we decide to go. Checked an confirmed: the same as last year $16 shipped worldwide
- Common issues we faced:

a) get 12+1 pictures (decent pictures... and talking about resolution!)
b) get enough interested people to buy it (estimated price is always based on some printed volume - when printed less price is going up)
c) get everything in time... you want it at home before end of the year? we must start immediately!

So what do you think? Calendar 2016 - to be or not to be?

To be! Had one a few years ago and a new one would be great.

folks we need to start collecting pictures! I will prepare calculation (exchange rate, postage fee, etc) and estimate timing... Give me one day.

note: it seems I can reach the same printing company as last year (just had call with them) but we need to have READY pictures for printing in 2 weeks max kindasad.gif. Can we handle this timing?
njccmd2002
Question? Does it have to be a pic of the car? Or can it be the engine bay? Like someone swappin... Just to change it a bit lol.... Or someone autocrossing it. Or one running throught the mud. Not just any picture lol, but something different
JFXtreme007
Hopefully one of these can help you out smile.gif









malpaso
brilliant JFXtreme007! I wish I had similar set from everyone smile.gif. With material like this I can make a lot of things wink.gif.


I have checked we can stay on the same price as last year! Costs raised BUT exchange rate (USD/CZK) changed so it is still $16 delivered worldwide


Also I just let go first idea that came in my mind in terms of design:



not saying this is it... just sharing ideas biggrin.gif.


And this is my addition:











malpaso
Also I remember last year I dumped HectortheRican so now I'd glad to fix it (good cover picture IMO):

Definitely need one! smile.gif

I think we did that with czwalga once.
Yeah I think itd be a good addition.
I have always wanted to take some nice shots of me working on the car but always end up working more than picture taking haha



I like that month design martin. just needs a more sleek typefont

I like that cover image as well. Just to help out I will try to throw out some cover image designs using that picture.
jordisonjr
Will there be a photo Submission thread with voting, as there usually is? Wouldn't mind getting some photos in.
malpaso
Tigawoods indeed biggrin.gif. No focus in terms of font or any graphic details. Just let go idea to the paper as fast as I could with first picture wink.gif. Will tweak it for sure.

jordisonjr... to be honest I would like to get 12 pictures. I do not care about process. You have 10days starting now wink.gif. I hate this part because there always someone will be disappointed. My target is clear:

- 12 pictures
- minimum resolution 3508x2480 pixles
- well made (please no blurry mess)

And that's it. In case you will make me choose I have own opinion and rules (you saw them last year) what might not be sexy for everyone... please do selection instead of me this year.

So once again. 12 pictures... 10 days (better one week) to give chance to the people to see what they buying.

I have two weeks to collect payments (and meet deadline 8th November given by printing company= day when I need to know how many calendars will be printed and to pay for them)

So far I see 3 submitted cars. Please go on!

Only problem with my monthly winner shot is the resolution isnt very good, so you could have me as August but choose the photo you had for the demo calendar shot instead smile.gif

I'll also be down for 2 calendars (my dad wants one haha)

A few more suggestions.


Mine, but nothing special.

richee3 nice pictures (I like "the wall" one wink.gif).

I have feeling you do not understand people situation. Printing company will DENY to print pictures below 3508x2480 pixles. So yes it is nice having 12 candidates already (COTM winners) but if just single one has not picture in proper resolution we are lost and need replacement. That is why I say for years: "do you want COTM people = calendar people? make rules also related to quality of the source...". So yes. It is nice someone made nice accidental shot with his cellphone. It is COTM worthy... congratulations. But it doesn't mean it is also calendar worthy.

So lets start take this serous:

1. Tigawoods
2. kloudkicka
3. JaQb_CK
4. Chromed
5. hotgt4
6. Red123
7. blockustomz
8. DarkDeath
9. 4-eyed-freek
10. JFXtreme
11. Bakuu0
12. RoadRage

if anyone of those will not deliver 3508x2480 pixles plus image in time (by the end of this month) will be replaced with anyone who will deliver proper picture to me. Listed so far:

- PegGTS
- richee3
- enderswift
- malecrod
- Hug0
- malpaso
- Rusty

In this moment I have in fact 5 sets in proper resolution. My one, PegGTS, richee3, Rusty (as decent replacements ready to go smile.gif) and JFXtreme with 4-eyed-freek (only two who will be on calendar for sure in this moment)

Please all interested people here confirm/check if you are listed in FS topic http://www.6gc.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=96186
richee3
I understand the issue with the resolution. I also understand the time crunch so I'm just making suggestions and since we had used the COTM as a template in the past, I was just gathering all the photos in one place. smile.gif My shots aren't anything special. I have the full resolution pictures saved on my computer and you know how Photobucket kills the quality. I wish I had more shots of more cars (and from different angles) but those are the best of the pictures I have that will meet the resolution criteria. I also realized earlier today that I need to ask permission of the owners before submitting pictures of their cars as candidates for the calendar so for now, I'm pulling my pictures down until the owners decide if they'd like their cars in the calendar.

No worries. Fully understand. Pictures of your car are perfect and fully usable so I hope they can stay wink.gif. So far we have candidates but we are far from having "12 printable pictures". In fact - in total count - we have 5. Two COTM wines and 3 replacements. In case you get permission from other guys we can have nice "backup plan" available in case some COTM pictures will be unreachable.
PegGTS
I would prefer to use one of the photos I took due to photo rights and whatnot but if mine are not high enough resolution, I will also include this one taken by a photographer at a local meet.

Rusty
If you need any more his res photos



malpaso
omg... amazing pictures!!!!

Rusty please send them to me.

PegGTS I have small issue with flicker picture. You are not maker of the photography... are you sure you are allowed to use it as you wish? Anyway. This picture works fine (resolution is good enough)

malpaso
I found not every month suits every photo composition (long month vs short month = grid with squares is different size) and 4-eyed-freek's COTM wining picture was real challenge biggrin.gif.



Anyway. This should be it...



Actual January 2016 sheet. I hope no complains wink.gif
ILoveMySilly97
Can we still submit pics if we weren't one of the cotm winners?
malpaso
If you have big enough pictures (3508x2480 pixels plus) please do it. Anyone is welcomed. We have really tight schedule and I am sure not all COTM winners will have high resolution pictures or will deliver those pictures on time (deadline is by the end of month). And only when I have any 12x 3508x2480 pixels plus pictures in my hand it is making calendar really possible. Now I have six (and just two from COTM winners). So more pictures submitted the better. Just to be sure and having "plan b" ready.
richee3
I'll email you my full resolution picture this evening. smile.gif
jordisonjr
Ill post some pics tonight, my work blocks flickr where all my photos are.
richee3
Pictures posted with enderswift's permission.
RoadRage
I don't think my COTM picture is high enough resolution, I can supply some better photos by tonight if thats alright?
malpaso
Post what you have. Till there is not 12 big enough pictures I believe there is no time for luxury to be picky biggrin.gif. At least for next time we have topics to discuss.

note: do you happen to have slightly different composition of shot? less car more space around (or on one side). To have space where to place grid with dates...

My humble entry, should be 5184 x 3456 if photobucket didn't compress it.
