Just mulling over some layout ideas for 2011 calander.

  • A4 opened out to A3 (like current one)
  • Square format (like the ones in the stalls)
  • Desk size - self standing
What period of time?
  • Month per page (normaly 12 images) - like current one
  • Week per page (52 images)
  • Fortnight per page (26 images)
What format for the time?
  • date a line (like current one)
  • date a box
What to include?
  • National Holidays
  • Memorable dates
  • YD Events
  • Neaps/Springs
  • Moon phases
  • moon times
  • Tide times
Content of Images
  • UK waters or Home and Away
  • Squidge and Spidge
Layout of images
  • Single image per page
  • Multiple images per page (one large with a few smaller along bottom/side)
If Multiple images

How about the two week display rather than the month - would also mean more pics are included, therefore possibly more being sold - but would probably knock the price up depending on volumes


Edit:

are the strap lines:
Raising money for the Scuba Trust - Diving with Disabilities
and for the RNLI - the charity that saves lives as sea

How about it being a bit more like the Snap On calendar, have some photo's of the lovely girls of YD scantilly clad. Of course to balance things there should be a male version of YD's finest blokes half naked in car parks.

So when I have time, I'll get a template sorted for:

  • A4 opened out to A3 (same size as current one)
  • Month per page (normaly 12 images)
  • A day a line (same format as current one)
  • Inculding:
    • National Holidays
    • Memorable dates
    • YD Events
    • Neaps/Springs
    • Moon phases
  • Images from UK waters
  • Images mixture of Squidge and Spidge
  • Single image per page

would like a good photo of a Diver near Lifeboat/Lifestation for one of the months
also a good photo of something the screams out Scuba Trust for one of the months
Those could also be front/back covers

Thinking more Scuba Santas (known date and venue)
Ironing if it goes ahead (possibly known date by then)
