Hi All

Sorry its a little late this year... I'm waiting for approval on the last few images to send to the printer. I'm told 3 day turnaround so I should be able to ship in a week or so to get it there by Christmas.

This year there are a couple of changes.

The first, and most obvious, is the ordering process. Ordering website is https://phoenixartdesign.weebly.com/factory-five-calendars.html

(In years past, people have filled out an order form, then I sent a Paypal invoice, then I waited for the invoice to be paid, then I shipped. All of this required manually tracking the process for each order in a spreadsheet and was very labour and time intensive.) This year, I bit the bullet and just paid for two months of ecommerce on the website, so you can order and pay in one step. This will drastically speed the turnaround time (since I do actually have a real job!) and make things simpler. No more chasing, no more missed emails (hopefully!) etc.

Payment will still be through Paypal.

For those who don't use Paypal, in the past I've been able to accept money orders. I am willing to continue this practice. Email is still [email protected]

The second change has to do with the printing itself.
Last year was my first year in a new city, and thus using a new printer. There were teething problems. I think I pulled all the bad molars now.
The paper will be heavier than last year, more like the papers you have been used to in the past... 100lb stock pages, light card stock cover.
Due to last year's feedback, there will DEFINITELY be a hole for hanging, and the numbers on the calendar itself are going to be larger.
Saddle stitching is here to stay, so no more coil binding wreaking havoc with shipping envelopes. And the full bleed on the artwork returns.

Calendars are available for:
The Roadster
The Daytona Coupe
The 33 Hotrod / 35 Pickup
The 818 (I really liked a theme I did a few year ago on the GT-M, so this year I did it again for the 818 - hope you like it), and, of course,
The GT-M

Calendar pricing remains the same at $25 per calendar, which covers the cost of printing and shipping. I look forward to your orders!

Thank you to all who contributed pictures. I got some real beauties to work with this year!
