Shipping at last!

The first bulk shipments of the 2017 Ohio Bicycle Events Calendar hit the road today, March 10. While production seemed to be going along swimming early on, things seemed to slow down as we approached printing. I don’t know why but that’s just the way things go sometimes! At any rate, bicycle shops and clubs that sent us requests for supplies of the Calendar are at the top of our shipping list;…

On-press today!

We had the opportunity today to watch printing of the first sheets of the 2015 Ohio Bicycle Events Calendar. The 24-page “book” is actually kind of a big deal. Annually we print 20,000 copies (or more) of the glossy piece to be distributed across Ohio and into portions of neighboring states. We try and make the Calendar as visually appealing as we can while maintaining its utilitarian nature — it’s a balance…

At the printers!

The digital publishing package is at the printer’s plant now and, in a couple of days, I’ll be looking at full-color proofs. Once the proofs are approved (usually the same day) the project will be queued for production. We’ve already had excellent response from bicycle shops across the state requesting¬†copies of the Calendar for their customers. Those whose requests have been received by the completion of printing/binding will receive their shipments very…

We’re in the layout phase of production now, actually putting the Calendar together in a final form before shipping off to the printers’. We won’t have a publication date until we receive and approve proofs and get into the press queue. The Web version will go live when we go on-press! ‘Til then, the deadlines have all passed and we’re accepting no additional ride listings or ads for the printed version of…

Shipping began today

At long last the 2014 edition of the Ohio Bicycle Events Calendar is shipping! The first bulk orders of Calendars going to bicycle shops and clubs should begin arriving on Thursday, March 20 … somehow suitable that it’s the first day of spring! While I’m excited to get the Calendar out there, doing its job promoting cycling events across Ohio and in the region, I always start worrying. I’m human. While I…

On-press now!

This year’s Calendar is being printed as I type this. Once the job is printed, it rests as the ink dries, then it is sent on to bindery. In the bindery stage, the large, flat sheets are folded, cut, and stapled into finished books. The finished pieces are then packed and shipped. If your club or bicycle shop needs a supply of Calendars, please contact us ASAP so you can be in…

Only after the proofs are approved will the job be scheduled for printing and we be given an expected delivery date. Delivery, these days, to us actually means the beginning of distribution, most of which is now handled by the printer on our order.…
