For Sale : 2022 QE2 Story Calendars
« on: Nov 12, 2021, 03:28 PM »
It is that time of year again : The QE2 Story calendars for next year are ready!


This year, we offer Lulu calendars for sale, and we also intend to set aside a couple of Vistaprint calendars as special prizes in forthcoming photo competitions, which will be a great incentive to enter your photos! 

The Lulu calendars can be ordered here :

https://www.lulu.com/en/gb/shop/the-qe2-story-forum/the-qe2-story-calendar-for-2022/paperback/product-e2g6gv.html?page=1&pageSize=4



A preview button is available on that page, and you can enjoy an even larger preview by clicking into the attachments at the bottom of this post.

The price per calendar is GBP 8.20 or equivalent in other currencies. Unlike previous years, the calendar will be sold at cost price, i.e. with no margin to benefit the QE2 Story.

You can order this calendar by logging into Lulu and completing your address and payment details yourselves.

A big thank-you to everyone who contributed with wonderful photos for the competitions, who voted and selected the prizewinners, and who sent us the prizewinning pictures.

Thank-you Isabelle for once again producing an excellent QE2 Story Calendar for us to enjoy in 2022.

I have had the opportunity to place an early order for the Calendar, which I am really pleased with and cannot wait until January to hang it on the wall above my desk.  It is a good size and the gloss finish emphasis the quality of the pictures. 

If you want to order your Calendar follow the link Isabelle has added to the first post on this topic and follow instructions to order.

Thank you for another excellent calendar, Isabelle! Just ordered one, well in advance, to hopefully take to sea.
First sailed on QE2 in August 2003 aged 6 years old. Last 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, in January 2020 and August 2022.

Well done everyone.

All forum members who entered the competitions this year, or who voted.

Please consider buying a calendar for yourself, or as a gift.  With Lulu you can send the calendar directly to a friend overseas, and they'll get it in time for Christmas just now - perfect!

Thank you very much, Pete. It was a truly joint effort, from the photographers to the organisers of the competitions, to the winners sending their original photos, and mine was just the small part of assembling as many as I could into a calendar. Finally, Lulu did the printing!

We have now sold 43 calendars, as follows :

GB   22
US   11
FR    2
AU   2
CA   2
DE   1
KE   1
NL   1
NZ   1

Lulu prints on demand, so any number can be printed to satisfy your orders!

The calendars to be offered for prizes, are from a different printer (Vistaprint), with a different layout -- so that will be something else to look forward to!

My calendars arrived some time ago, but I have just now opened the package (which was very well packed). They are great, and many thanks to Isabelle for designing the calendars, so that we can have a fabulous view of our QE2 every day ! And many thanks to all those who submitted photos to the competitions, the winners of which form the calendars.
QE2 - the ship for all of time, a ship of timeless beauty !
