It’s amazing companies like Lulu.com can print on demand products like books and, in my case, calendars at all. I was pretty cheesed off, however, when I received a batch of calendars that had, to my eye, a prominent printing flaw on several picture pages. Most people probably would not have noticed the flaws I saw, but it bothered me intensely. After a good bit of back and forth with their support folk and an attempt at printing with a different company, I’m back with Lulu. Even with the printing flaws, the Lulu.com job had richer colors and clearer reproductions of my photographs than did the (literally) lackluster competitor. So, since we’re now past the first of the year, my Lulu-published calendar is available at the lowest price they allow me to charge. In any event, I hope you have a happy new year and will stop back and see what sights I’ve seen as the months pass. My Lulu.com store is here.
