I would like to begin with a story when we met very new relatives thanks to our genealogy research. We met two really nice folks from the United States just two weeks before they visited Germany. We met them and today we are friends, beyond family. When we introduced Michele to our calendar idea, she came up with the question, whether this market isn't fading as more and more people today use electronic calendars. As she was definitely right on the one hand, I was sort of disapointed first but thought about that challenge on the other hand.
I found out, that she thought, we would offer calendars, like you find them in the malls and bookstores, when the calendar season is beginning each year. There you will almost exclusively find these 50:50 calenders, shown in the next pic.
This is what we call a 50:50 calendar. The upper 50 % is a nice decoration, the lower 50 % is where you put in birthdays, vacation and doctor's appointments. You would never ever place such a calendar in your living room, nor in your hall, dining area or hall.
Back to the Bach family story. While I was desparately disapointed about that fact - not about the hint - in the first 2 or 3 hours on our trip back from the west cost of Florida back to the east coast of Florida. However right before entering Tampa Bay I got the blessing from that hint. Everybody, who is interested, would have believed we offer 50:50 calendars, too, if I would not explain the difference and tell, we are not.
So actually these 50:50 calendars are no real decoration. They are nice in the kitchen plus ... I don't know where else, may be in your walk in closet? Nor really.
Calendars from "Bach 4 You" are like a picture on the wall. 95 % is design and the calendar on the calerndar (... sounds funny!) is design. It is decoration. It is a decoration, where visitors, friends, neighbors and buddies look, get closer and are curious, whats on the monthly pages in the follwoing months.
That is what it's all about: If you see our calendars, you might assume, the monthly pages would be 50:50. However, they are not!
Can you imagine such a calendar behind your decorative piano in the living room? Yes you can: But it's awefull. Forget the imagination and hop to the next pic.
Same size as the pic above! Can you imagine such a calendar behind your black piano on a white wall? Yes, you can. It's nice in a small size and it's breathtaking in the 16.5 inches by 23.4 inches size. In the middle size it's breathtaking, too. Plus you need less breath.
