    2014 DeLorean Wall Calendars - Pictures Needed!!

    Same request as from last year. I am planning on producing a DeLorean wall calendar for 2014. From my post below from last year you can see the requirements, and the versions of the calendar that I produced for 2013 can be found at http://www.cafepress.com/dmc12/9435977. Please email me at mcbabb@gmail.com if you have a submission, agree to the terms below, and want your pic evaluated for inclusion in the calendar.

    PM or post here if there are any questions!

As I have done in the past, I want to solicit pictures from the folks that are on this forum of their cars in cool settings, etc. I need 13 pictures total, 1 for the cover and 1 for each of the 12 months. . . and usually make the cover car the picture that I think i the coolest (usually - there also needs to be room for calendar title, etc.

    What, you ask, do you get in return for providing a picture? For just that, nothing (sorry!) BUT, if I use one of your pictures I will let you purchase a calendar at my cost - $20.99 (for everyone else the price is marked up $2.00 to cover my time putting everything together - $22.99). When offered for purchase, they will be available on my CafePress store at http://www.cafepress.com/dmc12. I will at a minimum do a 17 x 11 inch calendar (with enough submissions), but may also do an 8 1/2 x 11 version ($16.99 my cost, $18.99 sales price)

    So, if you are interested in having your car immortalized (at least for 2013), please send your pictures my way. You can either PM be here, or send them my direction via email mcbabb@gmail.com. I need HIGH QUALITY images (just because your phone has high resolution does not mean that the pics will work good in print with the small crappy lenses and SW on most phones). Specifically, I need images that will scale well for a 17 x 11 inch calendar picture at around 200 DPI (or approx 3500 x 2300 for the dimensions) - no idea what any of that means - feel free to forward my way and I will let you know if it will work or not.

    I usually choose pics on a first come-first served basis (assuming that it will scale - and I usually prefer just the cars, no people - though I know from recent posts that there are some Irish gals that some folks would not mind seeing more of). Please let me know if there are any questions.

    For anyone that has worked with me on this in the past, or purchased one of these, feel free to chime in on what you thought of the process, the final product, etc.

    Here are some examples of the past cover images for the calendars:

    What is the deadline for the submissions? I have some ideas on photographs but I won't be able to do at least of them until 8/21 (racetrack photo).

    I will certainly give you a few to review and I would love to a calendar with my car on it!

    No official drop-dead data. I usually start early to try to give folks a few months to get pictures sent in. The only real limit is that if I get enough pictures that will work, then I stop accepting new entries. . . .if we cannot get you this year, we can always get you next year!

    I've got a picture I've been meaning to take. I'll try to remember to take my camera to work so I can send it to you in the next couple of days

    Devon (Lordfly) has several very good pictures that he has posted. I would love to see those on the calendar!

    I would get some decent ones of my car, but it is in a million pieces. Maybe for 2015...

    folks usually have really cool warm weather pictures of their cars. . . .so I always struggle to find good pictures for November - February for the calendar.

    Hopefully everyone's cars were safely packed away in garages for the winter storms that just went through the US, but if anyone has any good DeLorean + snow pictures that you would like to see in the calendar for next year please let me know!
