    Where are these calendars being printed? Do they have samples we can see?

    They are printed here in Columbus, Ohio by a locally owned business. They are designed by a MINI owner that is also a free lance designer, based here in the same town as M/A World HQ.

    The design has not been finalized. Once complete I'll start posting the images we chose.

    Those that have purchased these in the past can attest to the quality and care that goes into the calendar.

    The M\A calendar is a high quality calendar. Much nicer then those crappy car, dog and cat calendars you buy at the Mall.

    Nit is made of nice think paper and it full MINI's what more could you want?
    I know (2) M\A calendars. :Thumbsup: one for home and one for work. :ihih:

    Agree with Eagle-co94. Before I pay $26 (calendar - int. shipping - PayPal fee) I really would like to see at least thumbnails of pages inside... not questioning quality of printing at all. Just content.

    Nathan do you have a link for Last years Calendar?

    This years will be the same with Different MINI's in the pictures. Unlike a wife, it's only a 1 year commitment and you don't have to keep it if you don't like it.

    You can always give it to someone else as a Christmas gift. Also unlike a wife, you have to pay them more then 1/2 of everything you own to get rid of them.

    It'll happen, the designer was just out watching dolphins. I can understand the need to decompress all to well.

    if need be I'll extend the free shipping window another week.

    C'est la vie!

    I'll have the proof back from the printer real soon, then I can see better if the higher res version is needed. Probably not though, when we have a low res version of a phot we want to use if it looks like carp we don't use it. Being it was selected means that Carol (who does the calendars) was sufficiently happy with the resolution.
