Couldn't GTtalk make a calander similar to this one ? Like maybe doing last years GT of the month or maybe the 2nd place tractor. But I quess it depends on the cost of having them made. Could sell them in the GTtalk store for a little extra cash for the site.
Just a thought

I made last years. Took a little time, but I got it done. Been thinking about it again.

Anyone can take any batch of digital pics to Office Max or Staples and have them make a calendar. I had a GT calendar made last year from photos I've taken at tractor shows. Normal price was around $12 but Office Max puts the service on sale for $8 fairly often. Overall I was happy with it but it would have been nice to have it made on a thicker, glossy paper stock. You can also do them online.
I saw the digital calendar that was posted of the GTtalk tractors of month last year but the resolution on several of the pictures wasn't high enough to blow up to calendar size.

I just used pics folks had posted for the thread. I printed mine out on semi-gloss paper. I don't sell them, posted it in the Misc Manuals section for everyone here that wanted to download it.

I was just thinking about this the other day when I flipped my calender over to Oct. It sure would be nice to have another GTTalk calender for next year. I thought Kenny did a pretty good job with it.

Oops! I didn't want to imply that Kenny didn't do a great job, only that several of the pics submitted for TOM were very low resolution and didn't look great when blown up. In other words, he didn't have great material to work with... :smilewink:

I know that very well, Jim. Guess now is as good as time as any to work out next years if you all want me to do it again.

I like the idea of taking photo's from each tractor of the month from this year and putting it in next years calender. Thanks Kenny.
