Coffee Spot Calendar: Last Chance

An espresso on one of the tables in the garden at the back of the Boston Tea Party, Park Street, BristolA little while ago, I decided to take the plunge and go into the brave world of Coffee Spot merchandising with a Coffee Spot Calendar for 2014. I have to say that I’ve been overwhelmed with the response: I thought that if I could produce 50 of them and break even I’d be happy. As it was, I printed 100 and, as I write this, I have just seven five four two left  sold out! If you still want one, I might be getting some returns and I can always print some more, so do let me know if you are interested.

If you have somehow managed to miss the calendar so far, it’s professionally-printed, A4 in size, with the week starting on Monday. It’s on extra-glossy 235 g/m2 paper and I have to say that I am really pleased with the quality which far exceeded my expectations. However, you don’t have to take my word for it since fellow-blogger, The Coffeisseur, has written a review of it. Each month features a full-sized picture from one of the Coffee Spots I covered in that month. You can see all the pictures and which Coffee Spots have been featured in the gallery below.

You can find out how to get a copy of the calendar after the gallery.

So, there are just seven five four two no calendars left! If you want one, I might be getting some returns. They will be just £12.00, with a flat fee of £1.20 postage and packing (UK only), regardless of how many you order. For Europe, the postage is £4.00 and for the rest of the world, £6.00. Both the Europe/rest of the world postages prices are per calendar, not per order (sorry about that, but it costs a fortune to send stuff overseas these days).

Alternatively, I can always get some more printed, but these will be one-off print-runs on 200 g/m2 paper (not 235 g/m2 paper) and will cost £16 each (postage included). I will also need payment in advance.

I also took a chance and printed 10 desktop calendars which have smaller pictures, but which would look great on your desk. I’ve got just one of these left and it is £8.00, plus £1.20 postage and packing. I can also get these reprinted: they will be either £12 (postage included) if ordered on their own or £8 if ordered with a full-sized calendar.

If you’d like to get your hands on one, there are a number of ways of doing so, but basically it all boils down to letting me know. You can leave me a comment in the box below and I’ll get in touch, or you can drop me a line using the Contact Form. If you follow me on twitter or facebook, you can also drop me a private message.

If you can get into Reading, there are some for sale at Workhouse Coffee on King Street. Meanwhile if you are in Guildford, you can pop into Bar des Arts and pick one up there.

Most people have paid me by direct bank transfer (I will let you have the details when you contact me) or you can pay me by Paypal if you prefer. Finally there is always the option of an old-fashioned cheque!

I’d also like to take the chance to thank all the Coffee Spots (some of whom don’t even feature in the calendar!) for their support in purchasing the calendar this year. They are, in no particular order:
