Publishing a Calendar / Planner

Hello all,

 

I published a book a while ago using CreateSpace. Now Im trying to publish calendars. (Calendar Book and Planner) Can someone please guide me on how to start?

 

Should I use createspace to publish a so called Planner? Should I use Lulu since they also have different bindings and also publish calendars?

 

I would appreciate your help and guidance.

 

thanks,

DP

You might want to take a look at Cafepress. They have formats specific for wall calendars, and also spiral binding good for calendar-book type planners.

 

I love createspace, but the perfect binding and required portrait aspect display can be a bit limiting for those types of things.

Re: Publishing a Calendar / Planner

For me, a really useful calendar/planner needs to lay open, which requires a saddle-stitched, coil, or casewrap binding -- perfect-binding just doesn't work very well for this kind of application, and that would rule out CreateSpace for such a project in my view.

 

Also, using print-on-demand to produce this type of product will force you to set a price that is much higher than similar/competing products (because companies that specialize in custom calendars or day planners can produce them in quantity for pennies).

 

Hope that's helpful.  Best wishes.

Re: Publishing a Calendar / Planner

Please, I have a further query regarding publishing calendars and diaries. Under which category should they be enlisted? I only found "reference": "Annuals". Would this be appropriate? Thanks for your answer.
