WC! Bead Calendar Submissions

First of all, many thanks to Jen Geldard and Julie Cabanaw for working on the 2004 calendar. I know it was very hard work for them and they made a beautiful calendar. So, a big round of for them!


Now, calendar submission guidelines. Please read this information carefully.

You can submit pictures of anything you've created with glass...not just beads.

You can send up to four images.

Send the largest in-focus images you have. They can be photos or scans. Images you have posted on WC are too small for a printed publication. I need big pictures!

If you are scanning beads, set the scan resolution to 300 dpi. Do not resize or edit your images.

If you are photographing your beads with a digital camera, set the output to fine or whatever that setting is on your camera. Do not resize or edit your images.

Here is the link the the CafePress guidelines for images, if you want to know the nitty gritty. cafepress guidelines

Do not zip your files. My email will reject zip files.

Do not include props, fingers, hands, or text in your pictures. Please use a plain background.

Include the name you want to be known as in the email so that I can credit the images correctly. I will cut and paste the information from your email.

Send your pictures to [email protected] or [email protected].

Please send your images by 12/15.

I am looking forward to a month of playing with bead pictures!

Re: WC! Bead Calendar Submissions

Oops! I should have said thanks for Jen and Julie working on previous year's calendars. Julie did 2004 and Jen did the 2003 calendar. In any case, they both did a great job and I have a great act to follow.

I know first hand of Misty's bead-background-erasing capabilities. She is a real pro, and I would recommend her any day of the week! And she does it with a smile! The poor girl does need help.

Re: WC! Bead Calendar Submissions

I've only gotten a few pictures...

Please send me your beadie pictures. It's quiet at work right now, so I hope I can have the calendar images ready to go by the first of the year...that means I need pictures!

Pretty please! I'll take good care of them, honest.

Re: WC! Bead Calendar Submissions

I will send some tomorrow evening, promise! Though some won't be beads, I know you said that is ok, but if it's a "bead calendar"....

So you have at least two more coming your way soon!
I can't wait to see the final calendar, and I will need one in my studio so as I lose track of hours I at least know what DAY it is! =)

You can edit for sharpness/brightness if you want to, or I can do it.

Re: WC! Bead Calendar Submissions

When is the submission deadline? I just picked up my new digital camera, and I have to rescue a few pieces from work before they sell, take pictures and take them back.

Thanks for the hard work Sara!
