    My homemade Cobra calendar 2018

    As you might imagine, I like having a Cobra calendar in my office. Unhappy with the selection available in stores, I decided to make my own this year through Vistaprint. It was recently delivered and it looks absolutely fantastic!! Can't hardly wait for the new year to arrive...

    Brian,

    That really looks good and I may try that next year. What are the dimensions on the calendar? I mean the width and the length when it is opened up. Like you I have looked here for some and they don't even have any that are just Cobras.

    Each page is 8.5" x 11" with full bleeds, so opened, the full size is 11" x 17".

    The paper stock is nice and thick. The print quality is excellent, even for the lowest-resolution image I used. The Vistaprint website was dead simple to use, too.

    Cost was $24 for the single calendar + $8 postage + tax. Not much considering that it's a completely custom job just for me.

    Thanks Brian,

    That is perfect as that is the size that I use. And the price isn't bad at all. Just buying any calendar around here is from $18 to $30 no matter what it has on it. I and Carl use the Vista Site to print cards for the site.

    I always buy year old calendars because they are cheap.

    And your calendar looks great Brian. Job well done.

    Really nice! The Cobra Experience makes calendars. I picked one up last spring. Not sure if they sell them or give them away at their fundraiser?

    I bought a calendar from them for 2017, but I don't think they made one for next year.
