I could probably post ads around campus? I don't know how effective that is, or what the most effective way would be, but I'm sure there's got to be some sort of market on campus? Ideas?


Do you have a veggie/animal rights group on campus?! Maybe they could sell them???

Okay 8)

Today we spent 7 hours nonstop work on the calendar. It's almost finished and will go to print next week.

We also breainstormed how to distribute it. Here are our ideas so far:

- We emailed German vegan online stores and asked them if they want to buy (small profit for us to donate) and re-sell it (small profit for them).
- We will email animal rights groups and vegan organizations. We will sell the calendar cheaper to them (at production cost) and they will be allowed to keep the profit of the re-selling.
- We will go to shops, health stores etc. in the area and ask if they want to sell the calendar.
- We will encourage vegans to buy several copies not only for presents, but also for re-selling.

You all could buy some copies to distribute to your local AR groups. It's winning on all sides: we can sell more copies and cover our expenses, the AR groups can keep the profit they make and the vegan message is being spread.

I sure hope you all will buy dozens to distribute among your friends and family ;)
The smallest number i have to let print is 500 copies, that would cost me around 4'200$! The more i let print, the cheaper each copy gets, but of course the total gets more. So, i count on you to help me not ruining myself! :?

Thank you all for your enthusiasm and commitment, it's truly a great vegan joint project 8)

Love and peace,
Daywalker ;)

$4,200 :!: WOW, I had no idea it cost you so much to print them! I'm so glad you're seeing this project through; I think it's really awesome.
What do you anticipate the cost being per calendar for us to buy them?
I will do my best to get as many calendars out there as possible! Everyone I know is getting one from me! :D

It depends how much calendars one buys and for what use. AR groups will get the best price and be allowed to keep the profit. Shops, vegan restaurants etc. pay a slightly higher price, because i want to make a little profit on them and donate that. The consumers will pay around 12.50$ for a single copy (plus shipping, but that's not so high as i expected), that's also the price i recommend to the re-sellers.
I can't promise yet, but i estimate if a group takes more than 20, it will be 7.50$ per copy, that's zero profit for me. The other re-sellers will be somewhere in between, around 9.95$ i'd say. These prices are calculated with exchange rate Dollar:Euro = 1:1.25

Good girl! :D
It's the same for me - i don't have to worry much about christmas this year ;)


I had to cut the bio's a little, the space is quite small under the pics (didn't want to cut the pics!). The pictures are great, awesome, the calendar is fantastic. I'm impressed by Andreas, the guy behing Voice Design. He's a pro.
I actually think that my pictures are the worst in the whole calendar :( I was so busy organizing the calendar i didn't take decent shots. K-oz and Andreas disagree, though. I think they want to cheer me up ;)

Is that website affiliated with you Alex ? ie, will you get the money if calendars are bought from that website or will they be available on this website ?

(I went on www.so-ja.de and I can get to the calendar, but after that I can't understand a word of it -- sorry I'm not very fluent in German. :oops: )

Hey! :D

Yes, we were busy promoting the calendar ;)

Robert will distribute the calendar for the USA, Canada and the rest of the world in his shop (where the T-Shirts are). I hope he gets his computer problems fixed soon, so that he can put the calendar into the shop!

so-ja.de is the distributor for Europe. I sell the calendars to them, so the more calendars are bought from them, the more they order from me ;)
They wanted to make it more expensive, but i fought for a low price, as it is a non-profit project for the animals. The cheaper it is, the more people will buy it :) But i see that they are a small shop and have their expenses, too.

Buy, my friends, buy! :D
I have to sell at least 600 copies in order to get the money back i invested! :shock:

The calendar turned out great, believe me, the layout is cool 8)
It's pages are ~11.8 by 16.5 inches, it has 14 full color pages (cover, 12 months, back page) and is in English as well as in German.

:)

I can't wait to be able to order mine! I'm unemployed right now, so unfortunately I'll only be able to buy one at the moment. But as soon as I have a job I'll buy more and give them to friends!

I hope this goes well so that there will be a 2007 calendar as well! Maybe by then I will be fit enough to submit a picture of my own!
