Sky at Night Calendar, a problem.

I know it's free and this is going to sound a bit ungrateful but the calendar doesn't really work.

If you hang it on the wall as intended the corners flop over and you can't see most of the image. I suspect it's asking a bit much to suggest it's printed on stiffer material but if it had a stiff cover a discrete paper clip on each corner would hold the beautiful images flat and therefore visible .........just a suggestion of course [;)]

That may just be your calendar as mine hangs perfectly flat.

That's odd, perhaps it is just mine?

That's a relief Paul. [:D] To be honest I can't see how flimsy sheets of paper can be self supporting?

Most calendars are printed on a heavier weight paper. I know it would cost a bit more but as it's only once a year ......

The alternative, of course would be to make it separate from the magazine with a spiral binding/hanger

I want make it clear to the editors however, that I would MUCH rather have a slightly floppy calendar than no calendar at all!! As I've said elsewhere I think the calendar is a terrific bonus.

Yes, but as my dear old mother used to say, "if a thing's worth doing ........."[;)]
