We proudly present the final result of the Summer Glau Wiki 2013 Calendar. The second fanart calendar that have been constructed by members of this community. It has been a fun experience, but also a big challenge to create these master pieces of art. This year we improved the graphics skills that we achieved from working on last years calendar even more, and also new talented members of our growing community have gotten involved in the project.
The designs for this years calendar was created by:
Our old veterans from last years project Fermi, chrisdvanne (michelangelo) and Futurezone.
Our new talents REG, Traken and Mac T Mictlan Ahuizotl.
A printed copy of the calender will soon be sent to Summer Glau's fanmail as a gift from our whole community. It is not too late for fans to make contributions for the project because this year we will also send her a scrapbook with letters from the fans.
We would like to send it to Summer so she gets it in time for her birthday, July 24th. So hurry up go to this thread and submit your contribution: Summer Glau wiki scrapbook
If you missed last years calendar, here is the news: Summer Glau wiki 2012 calendar
Here is the tribute video for the calendar.
A huge thanks to John Anealio for giving us the permission to use his awesome song "Summer Glau" for the video. The lyrics of the Summer Glau song was written by John DeNardo to the tune of "Summer Breeze" by Seals and Crofts. One day he asked John Anealio if he would like to take a shot at recording the song. John Anealio then asked if it was OK to write an original tune to his lyrics instead.
The song is on number 5 in his album Sci-Fi Songs and can be downloaded here: johnanealio.com/track/summer-glau
If you would like a print of the calender here is the process to print the calendar using a printing-house explained:
1) Download the calendar directly as a pdf file with lossless compression of the images on A4 paper ( 8.27" × 11.69" ) or calendar.zip images at MediaFire link courtesy of TWO at Firefly.net. A pdf file is often requested by printing shops.
2) technical features :
Digital printing : laser color, 13 pages A4 format printed on matted coated paper 250 g from PDF file
Finishing : metal binding + notch and calendar hook
If you connect to the website of a printing-house, you may not find the exact requested features; in this case see if the website offers the possibility to make a personalized order. They will return a mail with a personalized quote that you can accept and thus initiate the manufacture of the calendar.
We would recommend professional prints if possible. The manufacture of the calendar can be made by any printing-house around the corner (try near universities), all you have to do is provide the pdf file in a USB key.
You can also do the prints at home and have the binding done on a printing-house for very cheap. Try to match as much as possible the technical specifications we gave above; using regular paper for example would not give satisfying result.
If someone has additional question feel free to ask.
