Topic: Another prize in SM order (8 msgs / 190 lines)
1) From: Paul Helbert
Wow, just got my SM order. Tom's picture postcard of Lower Gart,
Harasi District, Yemen is every bit as good as the coffee bean
pictures we used to sometimes get. Reminds me of some of the villages
in the Atlas Mountains au Maroc. Any thought of putting together a
calendar with larger pics, Tom?

Oh man, a Sweet Maria's calendar.  Wow, I know that it is totally outside of
"core competencies" but I would definitely buy one.  It could feature a
different coffee location each month, some cool facts, what-not, and each
month could show which coffees are being harvested, which are generally
arriving in america...  man, i would be all over that calendar.  Proclaim
your coffee dorkdom/snobiness/nerdiness to the world!!!
Great idea, Paul!

Yep.  I'm in.  I'm tired of free airplane calendars.  I'd pay good money for 
an SM Coffee Calendar.
Are you liking this, Tom?  It's bound to get attention for SM's.  Just ask 
the guy at work how many questions he gets about his Extreme Ironing 
calendar.

5) From: Paul Helbert
We get about two dozen unsolicited, free calendars each year. Only one
or two of them ever get put up. Another one gets used as a planner.
The rest just get recycled. All the free ones that we get are fairly
small...maybe 8.5 x 11 inch horizontal format. From time to time I see
really big advertising calendars the walls of banks and other big
spenders. Our calendars range from one picture for all year to one a
week (in my planner).
We know Tom is a photographer. Maybe some of his customers are, too.
Tom would be able to make money on art (coffee porn) with the side
benefit that he'd be making a few bucks on his own advertising. He is
already doing the photography. I know a high end small graphics shop
which might be happy to take care of the production end if Tom doesn't
have the time or inclination.
Choices would have to be made. What pictures? What size? What layout?
Number of photos? How limited an edition? What price?
You can count on my subscription.

Those are some nice ideas.
Alternatively, Tom could specify a Creative Commons License for some of his
photos.http://creativecommons.org/image-bill
