I ordered 1 of each size and they arrived today. They are great quality and pictures are nicely varied between the three sizes. Thanks folks for putting these together. I now how much work went into them.

In true Vistaprint style my  order arrived today .  Im sure they must have shares in a cardboard firm !
Delighted as always with the quality and general standard as always . Thanks to all involved.

The packaging was somewhat extreme!

Did you take photos? The packaging seems to be quite different from one country to another.

Mine (packed in the Netherlands I believe) was excellent, and the calendars arrived in superb condition.

I didn't, but the package was one of these fold-in, self-adhesive arrangements with an overall self-adhesive lid - which with some careful opening is being re-purposed by my wife for sending some items to a friend!

I am really pleased with the Lulu Calendar that I received yesterday.

The Calendar photos are in a nice gloss finish, which looks good and perhaps could be framed at a later date. Each Calendar page features only one picture, which suites the size of the Calendar. Brum Brum bear and Jasper bear get a page all to themselves. Andreas Busecke's photo Nutshell on the back pack of the Calendar is a nice touch. Just as you think you have seen all the photos there is this one to enjoy.

The packaging was a card envelope, which was sufficient for the size and there was no damage. 

I like both the Lulu and the Vistaprint Calendars.  Thank-you Isabelle for all the hard work you put in to produce these wonderful QE2 Story products.

I recently received my 3 x Medium Size Vistaprint Calendars and am absolutely delighted with them. The photographs are excellent - particularly May photo which is a belter. Thanks to all at QE2 Story Forum for making it possible. Well done!

Maybe these photos might explain the Vistaprint expanding box method, iv always felt they are more Ecco friendly with packing than Amazon,

Yes, that is the same box I also had. I thought it was marvellous! All recyclable carton, and so protective of the calendars. Much nicer than last year's Lulu packaging, which was plastic.

Good offers at the moment!

10 % off Lulu calendars (Code : READ10)
Up to 15 % off Vistaprint calendars

I am glad to see that, even with the most economical delivery method chosen, the calendars have been delivered way ahead of the estimated date.

This is a year when many of us wonder how best to procure Christmas presents, given the various degrees of lockdown in operation. Maybe a QE2Story calendar could solve a couple of these problems?

I sent a medium Vistaprint calendar to my cruising friend, Terry, and she is thrilled with it.

On our cruises, she had to put up with me saying, "well, on QE2,........"  :)

My Calendars (one for me and another for my Dad) arrived a short while ago, well and securely packaged, and well in advance of the 2nd December estimated delivery :) . I will keep them in their plastic wrapper for now, but the front cover looks wonderful with Shipnshore's photo of QE2 at Liverpool!
First sailed on QE2 in August 2003 aged 6 years old. Last stepped foot and sailed on QE2 in July 2008. Last saw the seagoing QE2 in person from the decks of QM2, on QE2's last Transatlantic crossing (Eastbound tandem) in October 2008. Visited QE2, in her new life, in Dubai back in January 2020.

So glad to read that, Thomas! I must say that I am very happy with Vistaprint so far. The only problem has been the slightly more complicated ordering procedure, but we have found a good solution, and as far as I can see, the quality is excellent. For me, when putting together the calendars, the design options were very helpful. I am also delighted to see that delivery is working well and the packaging is great.

This is an excellent Vistaprint discount if anyone if thinking of purchasing the Calendar ,today would be a good day to contact Isabelle at admin@theqe2story.com with details of what size Vistaprint Calendar and how many you would like.  She also needs details of your name, address and contact telephone number to place the order.

I just ordered 2 medium sized calendars for a member with the special 60 % discount, and the amount was less than one of them at the normal price.

Made me feel good!
