Well, we need to get the Crappie calendars going, and I have not heard from Drew in a long while. So I'm going to assume he's just too busy to help us out this year. That's fine, cause busy is good, it means that business is doing well for him.

OK, I'm throwing this out there. Can anyone else print calendars. Anyone in the printing business that can help. We want something like last year, the Crappie.com members can send in their best pictures, and we'll let the calendar publisher choose the best pictures to place in the calendar.

I think we'd like the moon phases included and probably holidays aslo. Just like last year.

This will be the first step, finding a publisher. Then like last year, we'll ask the members to send in their pics electronically, and provide sub captions.

So, any publishers/printers out there? We need your help. Thanks everyone.

Here are a few I found doing a search.

They'll even let you use your own logo or design your own calendars.

You can't use your own pics there. You can create a custom logo for the bottom of the calendar, but not your own pics.

Thanks for the suggestion though.

Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see the design link. Yes, design your own logo, but not calendar.

Ed,
I forwarded a link to my daughter at Bates printing in Massilon,Ohio.
They may be able to help. They do very high quality work.

edhead, I work at a printing company running a press, last years look to be done digital, witch we can do as well. If you would let me know how many you would like I will be more then happy to get a quote. The owner and most of the sales team are fisherman so I should be able to get a deal if I throw em some baits:D

Ed, I will see if I can get ahold to MacDru and see what is going on. I did get an e-mail from him the other day and I think I have his number so let me see what I can find out.

Great guys. Drew did a great job last year, so he'd be great, if he can find the time. He also printed them on demand so there were no bulk purchases involved.

And Drew would also be the best to ask how many might be sold. Anyway, as far as a quantity goes, I suppose maybe 250 might be a good quantity to ask for a quote on.

Thanks again guys.

Ed, just got an e-mail from Dru and he said he would be contacting you.

I've used them quite a bit. Very reasonable prices.
