We’ve been having a lot of enquiries in the shop about when our new Strong Island calendar will be available. We are excited to announce that they are now available to pre-order online with the copies arriving in store very soon.
This year we have another strong selection of photos from names that will be familiar to Strong Island followers, such as David Tuckwell, Johnny Black, Andrew Malbon, Billie Cawte, Rebeka Ashton and Howard Hurd. There are also first time inclusions from Christine Matchett, Tom Goss, Tony Wallace, Josh Holgate and Christopher Gambs. Of course a Strong Island Calendar wouldn’t be complete without Jon Neil, the only photographer to have been featured in every edition so far!
A proportion of the profits from the calendar will again be going to the Alzheimer’s Society‘s Portsmouth based services. They are the UK’s leading care and research charity for people living with dementia and their carers.
Each calendar is printed on 300sgm (350gsm Cover) Fedrigoni Arcoprint. This wood-free paper has a high-tech, cool white base guaranteeing excellent printability and is held in very high regard in publishing and printing industries. The guys at RIPE certainly delivered with this paper stock. It not only looks amazing as the print finish is second to none, but it feels really premium. Using an in-house HP Indigo 7800 digital press it sets the standard for premium quality digital print. Using liquid ink rather than dry toner powder, the print quality is on par with traditional lithographic printing with the benefits of less waste, which is of course great news for the environment.
There is a limited run available and we always sell out, so please be quick to avoid disappointment. We will contact all customers when their calendar is available for either collection in store (free) or with a Royal Mail tracking number when they are posted out. We expect delivery by the week commencing 27th November.
