My wife is working on some of the images, as we speak, and yes, some must be constrained and cropped to fit (the aspect ratio is kept). In all cases though, it does not appears to alter or detract from the photo.

For example, here is the final (low-res) art for the cover. As you can see, it's is cropped to fit, but it does not take away from the power of the image.

Nope, you're in.

We placed the order of 200 the yesterday, to take advantage of an online sale. The art goes in on Monday AM, and they were nice enough to let us give the final number at that time. We can actually order ANY whole number over 200 (like 213 or whatever), so we'll be able to get anyone in that wants one. But, there is a HARD deadline of Monday AM, at 7AM.

We have to give them that number then and once we do, that is the number that will get printed. We are at about 180 calendars sold, so PLEASE help us sell these puppies out.

One other thing - a few people have commented that they thought they had ordered last month when we first posted this notice. That was only a survey to get an idea of where we might start with orders, but they weren't firm orders. So...if you haven't, please go to the order site and place your order there.

Also, if you don't mind, and were one of the people who sent a check instead of using PayPal, please send me a quick note about how many you wanted...we don't want to miss those mail in orders when we place the final quantity.

Thanks again for all your support.

Scott

I just sent my order in. If there are none left, how will I know, and will I get a refund? (It will take the place of my Potlatch "Mountie" calendar. )

Thanks,
Hans

Calendars have arrived and will be shipped in the next few days.

MAN, did they turn out SWEET. Every bit as professional as the store bought ones that go for even more cash. I think you will all be pleased.

I got my calendars in the mail today. They look great! Thanks!

And I've got to say Mavs, if that was you that addressed the envelope, you have very bubbly hand-writing!
