I think you misunderstood. I didn't pay to have them printed, I never do, I'm not a publisher, not yet anyway. I always license my images to be published by an existing calendar publisher, who pays ME to use the images. In this case, the company went broke before they could pay me, which has never happened to me before. Since they're in receivership (bankruptcy), and the calendars had been shipped from the printer in Korea to a warehouse in Nevada, where they were likely to stay, except the receiver figured out that if they shipped them to the stores that ordered them, they could get paid. Unfortunately, because of the bankruptcy laws, I had to buy them from the receiver. Cheap, but I still had to buy them.
To answer you other questions, I didn't do the design (and I provided slides, from which they did scans), but I like it, and the printing is very good too. Again, I have nothing to do with that, nor the size of the run, or delivery, etc. If you want a printer, I might be able to refer you to a company I know in Hong Kong, but if you're thinking of doing a calendar for sale, you should know you are way too late for 2006, and you should really find an established calendar publisher, and work with them, on a licensing basis. And you better get started, they're already finishing up their selections for 2007.
