3 weeks ago today, I released the 2008 Sketchtoon Coffee Calendar, and since then, I've been pleased with the results. Here are some highlights:
- 54 calendars have been purchased since Saturday, November 24th.
- The quality of the printing from Cafe Press is quite good (see the photos).
- I've had positive feedback about the calendar grid for actual use as a calendar, as the days in the grid aren't covered with images or text.
- The Sketchtoon Calendar Set on Flickr has been viewed 2,500 times.
- Both the Vertical and Square iPhone/iPod/Palm wallpapers have been popular.
- The original Sketchtoon Calendar post from my blog has the number 1 position in natural search results on Google.
It's been an interesting and fun experiment. I'm learning new things, and have been meeting many interesting people through the project.
The calendar still has a brief window of opportunity for sales, probably through mid January or so. I'll be interested in seeing where sales go from here — hopefully I can earn a few more sales before 2008 arrives.
