2006 Calendar

This year's custom photographic calendar is a combination of my Nikon D2X (obtained June 2005) and D100 shots from the last year or so. Many are macros.

I used the calendar template provided by 455 Rocket:

In Photoshop CS2, I created a new white background tiff document at 13 x 19. Then I converted the template gif file to tiff and cropped the bottom calendar part of the calendar and moved it into the new document as a layer. Make sure that the Photoshop Image Mode is RBG color (not Indexed color - otherwise your image will look like a negative) and inserted image (as 8 bit). Printing was done on Inkpress Photochrome Luster paper (about $1 per sheet) on my Epson 4000 using archival Ultrachrome inks. I made 26 copies of the calendar with a cover page - so that is 338 prints at about 8 min per print (at 2880 high resolution using ImagePrint RIP). That is about 48 solid hours of printing done over the course of a week and a half.
This year, I used a bindery in Elizabeth, New Jersey (NorthEast Bindery) that was able to do Wire-O binding with a thumbcut notch so that a nice wire hanger could be used.
