How Calvendo enables creative people to turn their content into professional products
Less than a year after its UK launch, calendar publishing platform Calvendo has reached the 1000 registered user mark: “We’re very happy that so many English-language photographers and artists are already creating and publishing calendars with us,“ says Calvendo Managing Director Hans-Joachim Jauch. “We see a similarly successful development as when we initially launched in Germany in 2012 and are excited about our platform’s development for the upcoming calendar season.”
Calvendo’s UK division now has almost 1100 registered users and a good 4500 calendars with UK ISBNs in its list. Calvendo is always looking for good content, be it from individual or corporate users, and happy to consider a wide range of topics for its calendar programme. As a professional publishing platform for wall calendars it offers a unique service: Creative users can design their own calendars online with a tool provided and sell them on the international book market and online retail platforms such as Amazon. Before release, each calendar goes through a quality assessment process to ensure that products are fit to go to market.
The service is free of charge, and Calvendo self-publishers get royalties for each calendar copy sold. Working with innovative technologies and digital print-on-demand enables Calvendo to provide users with this opportunity. Calendars are produced upon customer order on retail sites which does away with cost for minimum print runs and pre-production.
