here's the deal , we have been losing money the past 2 years and it's not looking good for this year . We haven't got enough money yet to paid the printer off , I know we could charge more , but we would lose sells that way too .. I'm thinking my son might of hit it on the head , said people don't hang calendars up anymore when they got them on there cell or table or anything like that .. We also are having a hard time getting pictures with information .. seem each year it gets worse .. 2020 calendar we had to ask different people for a picture to fill the calendar .. YES we had some pictures , BUT NO INFORMATION . so no good to us

PLEASE if you have pictures , MAKE sure we didn't use them on a previous calendar ..

I'm not saying we are quitting , we will decide that later if we get pictures and information we will try for another year , I really don't like going out there and begging for pictures ..

just want to let you know where we are standing mark & linda

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeHey Mark and Linda

We , meaning my family and a couple good friends are always so pleased with the calendars, they are great every year. We hope you can continue to produce them even if the price increases, everything else has so, no problem. Thank you for everything you and Linda do, it has been wonderful. These make great Christmas gifts, and a special thanks for sending my brother his calendar way down there in Texas, lol. It might not be possible but, how about one year dedicated to Case cars and trucks, just a thought. Thanks again, Harry and Shirley Case

I posted a calendar question on the main forum, tractor talk a while back. Seems around me as others said they are going out of favor. People don't use them like they did. lots of outfits don't give them out anymore. Not seeing them in stores/malls for sale like we used to. One lady at an organization had a computer program and made them up for members and a few to sell. What surprised me is how easy and fairly cheap she did it. Of course it was for a smaller group and not a business venture. Hate to ne negative and don't know what the answer is, but I agree high prices may choke sales. Changing times I guess.

I would gladly pay more as well. I try to send my SC to you every year... A different photo of it each time (I'll even send you a few sometimes to give you something to pick and choose). I usually order one for me, and if my tractor is picked for the year I will order one for each of my aunts and uncles as it was their father's (my grandfather's) first tractor.

Would you ever consider including 'before and after' shots? Just a question. I am not sure if the printer charges you per image or not.

Hope to see you keep up the good work, and have a very Merry Christmas!

Good to know. I don't have that many good 'before' photos of my SC (and most of them probably have people on the tractor).

I always love your calendars, and won't hesitate to pull the trigger for a few if the price goes up. Most of the good ones I find online are $20-$25. So, with that said.... I think you would be right in line at $24.

Mark You should never lose money doing this, it is to hard to come by. You should charge what ever it takes to pay the bills. Anybody that has ever seen one of these calendars knows they are worth more than you charge. Most any of us would pay more for the calendars I know I certainly would. Dennis

I will be completely honest with you. The quality is great. The info is perfect. But you are not charging nearly enough for your calendars. If these were in a mall or on a news stand they would be $24. I know I would be willing to pay that much & would still order the same amount that I have ordered in the past. I really appreciate all the work You & Linda put in these. I vote for keep up the good work & don't quit.

People hawk their calendars on FB for a 20 dollar bill, minimum. $20 to $24 should still be in everyone's budget and not push away the cheapos.

I think you better raise it to 2.00 per month instead of 1.00. im sure people can afford 24.00 to look at tractors on a calendar. I sent in a D case few years ago , heard nothing of it. go to a shopping mall and you wont buy that calendar for 24.00. that's my 2.00 worth of info. and yes stupid computers taking things over.

Hi Mark,
Thanks for apprising us of the situation. We appreciate your efforts and certainly you should not be expected to lose money doing this. Let's take a little survey here among Case enthusiasts. How many are willing to pay a couple bucks more to continue getting the calendar? Count me in as approving a price increase.

Count me in. We need to keep this going. There is nothing out there near this good. Mark and Linda do a great job and need to be compensated accordingly. I will be sending in a photo with information as I have from the first. Thank you Mark and Linda.
