Another year, another calendar for Bacton Gas Site featuring lovely A4 photographs of the local landscape from local photographers and beautifully printed by Barnwell Print Ltd in Aylsham. Another regular project I love producing and have been involved in for years and years.
I’m proud to complete another local design and print job. The North Walsham & District Community Archive 2019 calendar joins its predecessors. A 2 colour, litho printed, 32 page A4 calendar of North Walsham and local district scenes, photographed by local photographers, supported by local advertisers, produced in North Walsham (yep, that’s me!) and printed locally. You be hard pressed to find a more community created product. It’s useful, collectable and top quality. I really hope that many people will keep copies of these calendars for years to come as they will then preserve North Walsham’s photographic heritage for future generations. Which is, after all, what the North Walsham and District community archive group was set up to achieve.
I don’t just produce artwork for amazing rockabilly bands and fascinating old photos. This lovely, full colour calendar is produced every year on behalf of the gas companies who share the Bacton Gas Terminals in Norfolk. Calendars are given to all the residents of the surrounding villages as a thank you for tollerating a huge gas terminal in their back garden! This was always produced, completely in-house, by Express Printing for whom I used to work, but since the closure of Express Printing’s print department I produce the artwork, collaborating with the lovely Jane Bayley from “Partridge Associates” in Aylsham and then it is printed by Barnwell Print Limited, also in Aylsham, who produce a beautiful quality job each time and are a joy to work with. 3,000 of these calendars are printed each year and feature really lovely photos from across Norfolk by some of the county’s top photographers. I have friends and family with nothing to do with the Bacton area who ask for copies of this every year and have done for years! We must have produced this for 15 years, if not more!
Once again I have produced the calendar for the North Walsham & District Community Archive. This calendar is always popular with the local community and has quickly became one of the highlights of the local community. This year the archive group decided to open the calendar up to local businesses to sponsor months which allowed the group to reduce the sale price of the calendar. The beautiful, hi resolution, photographs are drawn from the North Walsham & District Community Archive’s extensive collection of over 10,000 local photographs spanning almost 150 years! Each photo is litho printed to as high a standard as possible and presented in a 2 colour design. It is a privilege for me to be so involved with the local community and in projects which will become part of the town’s history just as the photos in this calendar are now. The sales of this calendar also raise money for the group to continue their tirelss work to safeguard North Walsham’s heritage.
