The 2015 Coffee Spot Calendar

The cover of the Brian's Coffee Spot Calendar, 2015, showing a flat white in a white cup, with tulip latte artAfter the success of last year’s Coffee Spot calendar, which sold over 100 copies, I’m back with the Coffee Spot calendar for 2015! As before, I’ll be producing a professionally-printed calendar, A4 in size, on glossy paper. Each month there will be landscape, A4 picture from one of my favourite Coffee Spots of the last 12 months. Just as last year, I’ll also be printing a very limited number of desktop calendars (I did 10 last year).

Each calendar will cost £12.00, with a flat fee of £2.00 postage and packing, regardless of how many you order  (UK only). There are also discounts for multiple purchases. If you think we’re likely to meet up in the near future, I’ll even waive the postage and hand your calendar over in person!

For orders for Europe, the postage and packing will be £4.00 for one or two calendars, while for the rest of the world, it’s £6.00. I apologise for the excessive postage charges, but this is what it’s costing me to send them to you!

The gallery shows the Coffee Spots that will be featured in the calendar.

Just like last year, in order that I know that this is going to work, I need to get the calendars printed at a price which makes sense. Ideally I’d like to sell at least 100, which is what I managed last year. However, in order for things to go ahead, I need a minimum print run of 50 (if I print anything less than 50 calendars, the price per calendar is just too high).

This is where I need you, dear readers. Put simply, I need to know whether you’ll buy the calendar BEFORE I go to print. Unlike last year, where I simply asked you to let me know how many you’d like and then sorted everything out afterwards, this year I’ve managed to get to grips with PayPal. I’ve put in place a simple ordering system so you can actually order and pay for your calendars on line. In order to incentivise you to pay up front, anyone who pre-orders a calendar (that is, orders and pays for their calendar before they are printed) will get a free Coffee Spot postcard, featuring an image from either last year’s calendar (Café Mila) or from this year’s calendar (I Am Coffee).

So, if you’d like to get your hands on the 2015 Coffee Spot calendar, head over to the Coffee Spot shop, decide exactly what you want, then click the “Buy Now” button.

The aim is to have the calendars printed at the start of December by the very latest and shipped out to you by mid-December so that you can have them in time for Christmas. Obviously the sooner I hit my targets, the sooner I can send the calendars off to the printers.

In the unlikely event that I don’t go ahead and don’t produce a calendar this year, all moneys will be fully refunded.
