Today’s product-of-the-day is an update to the 365-Day ETP Almanac I have for sale. There’s two full-sized versions, formatted for US Letter (8.5×11) and International (A4), with pre-entered dates. I’ve just added the mini versions to each package as a free update to people who have already purchased it. This is a nice feature of Gumroad, the digital download service I’m using; if you have already purchased this, you will have by now received an email informing you about the update.
The smaller version is cramped on space, so I didn’t fill-in the month and day in the main line near to the year. The smaller “Tuesday, January 1” line remains. It took about 2 hours to make the variations, mostly because I forgot how the XML import worked; this feature of InDesign can be confusing if you don’t know the three or four “gotchyas” that tend to collapse when making modifications of an existing design!
While I could have sold these separately, I think of the Almanac download more of a “planner kit” that motivated people need to assemble themselves, so I would rather provide the complete set in one package for this year. For 2014, I may split them into separate products because both choices will be available up-front instead of after-the-fact.
Thanks to everyone who purchased these almanacs before. If you have any suggestions on useful things to add, feel free to leave a comment! There is a READ ME file in each package that has instructions on how to print and use PDF files.
