Five Steps to Successful Publishing
for free by going to My CALVENDO.
Discover the possibilities! What will be your first project? A photo calendar? A poster book (Flipart)? A publication for the English, German or French speaking market? A publication using one of the DIN formats, or our own square format? Whatever you choose, working with CALVENDO means publishing for pay and with no financial risk. It's so easy to market and publish your own images. Hundreds of photographers, graphic designers, writers and artists
have been using this free service since 2012.
Begin your first project
with the CALVENDO Publisher.
Bring your ideas to life! The CALVENDO Publisher takes you step by step through the creation of your project – all the way to publication. Upload your images and do your layout page by page. The CALVENDO Editor offers you great tools and professional design templates. Describe your project! Good advertising and keywords for retail catalogues are as important to the commercial success of your project as the product itself!
Step by Step Instructions for creating a calendar project are availabe here.
Check production data.
Have you thought of everything? The CALVENDO Publisher will help you by performing a final data check. It tells you whether your image resolution is sufficient for printing and whether your layout meets professional standards. If not, you will have to make adjustments. But there’s no problem there – now you know what’s needed.
Self-publishing made easy. With CALVENDO you not only share and publish the calendars you make with your own photos, graphic art and writing: You actually sell them in the international book market. Simple. Online. Profitable.
Submit your project for publication.
All done? Then submit your project for publication, free of charge! If the jury finds no fault with your project, they will release it for publication. CALVENDO covers the production and distribution costs while the image rights remain with you. Now your product has an ISBN and within a few days can be ordered on Amazon and other online book retailers, or through your local book shop.
Lean back and enjoy your success!
Fame and fortune? In the publishing business, there is no such thing as guaranteed success. But there is a chance. Your calendars (or perhaps your poster books) are now being sold on Amazon and by other online book retailers as well as through local book shops – everywhere books are for sale. With a little online sales promotion, such as your author site, they will be increasingly available online and in stores. You are probably having fun spreading the word about your works and are enjoying the payments you are receiving. Or are you already busy creating your next CALVENDO project?
