Hi Tim, All,

Well, I had an ideia after read your e-mail.

I prepared another template of calendar. My ideia was: calendar and LibreOffice advertisment for each month.

I translated the months and the weeks, but I didn't translate the advertisment. I thought it would be better each community insert your advertisment in your own language.

Just to justify, I prepared the file in LibreOffice Draw, because I think this is one of the modules forgetful by the users. Well, in Brazil, most of users forget. This is one the way that I find to estimulate users to use LibreOffice Draw.

I'm not sure if you are going to like this calendar, but I'm sharing anyway.



Feel free to use and modify.

Happy to Help.

I think things like monthly wall calendars and other things that users can hang up in their offices or dorm rooms, etc., would be a good idea as a "passive" marketing tool, or at least a conversation starter.

A guy/gal works in an office/cubical where they use MSO. He has a wall calendar that has a LibreOffice theme where he/she can write in important dates for meetings and such. Now, people in the office might wonder what is all about, including if this means "give me more liberty in the office to do what I like" or something else altogether. It could become a nice conversation starter over lunch or break time.

Having a calendar file that can be edited by the user to add "events" and important dates to the "day cells" before printing also might look good as well.

I think a weekly calendar or bi-weekly one might work well, but that is a lot more pages to do/edit/modify unless it is really worth doing. I tend to pick up a weekly calendar "book" for a "cheap" price and not use the "day planner" idea of larger booklet with special pages and such that are used to fill in a "expensive looking" cover. Also, that could involve some "special" duplex printing with the correct info on both sides of the letter size paper.

Still we need more "every day" items that a user could have on his/her desk at work and/or at home that has a LibreOffice "theme" or marketing "idea" on it.

The more of these every day items we have for people to download and print, or buy from a vendor a a low cost, would be a really good "passive" marketing tool. How many coffee cups have logo and company info on them that are on the "average" office desk? How many people see these unique cups every day and sometimes ask where they got the coffee cup and what is the information displayed "all about". Single and "low costing" make-on-demand services for things like coffee and other beverage cups are hard to find. But there is a market for these items for our users and marketers. Think of all the handout items that you might see at shows, from pens to cups. Most of these items need to be purchased in "bulk" numbers. But if a user could get t-shirts, cups, pens, stickers, calendars, note pads, hats, and any number of items that might be popular to have. Ask your local Kiwanis group member about the items he/she can buy from their catalog[s] that are both useful and advertise Kiwanis or their "cause". I deal with a group that is one of the Kiwanis Family of organizations, so I know what they can get and how much they cost. Yes the Kiwanis buys in bulk. But there is a market out there for these items and if there is an outlet for buying single items as a low cost.

In another thread we are talking about getting a professional DVD making company to offer LO based DVDs in single units so it is no longer in the hands of home burning and printing individuals trying to fill the "gap". Maybe places like could sell a LibreOffice 2015 Photo/Graphics Calendar for say $14 each. Maybe we can get a vendor to sell t-shirts and ball caps as well that has the LibreOffice logo on it.

Having people like Eliane and others working on posters, cards, calendars, stickers, and other items that the user might want/need to use it very important. I hear that the original card and calendar from this thread is now being "translated" to a lot of other languages. That is a good thing. The more people in more languages that have access to all these ideas for posters, graphics, calendars, brochures, templates, etc., etc., the better it is for LO and for our user base. We need to keep this creativity up.

You gave me another idea. I'll prepare something in the weekend and I share with the list.

Here is a PDf file that is a very basic monthly calendar that has a LibreOffice theme.

This is just a first draft and could use some work, like adding the LO URL and such, plus making the calendar fill the whole page instead of leaving some space at the bottom. I left the space there to help deal with any needed room for the theme work.

It prints out file, for a quick draft test. Right now the "banner" needs to be 0.8 inches high to fit into the space. I just chose this one from what I had in a LO artwork folder. There can be made some other image that could work better, or use the logo, etc..

So just look at it and see what you think about making a LO themed monthly calendar that you can write on. This one has USA holidays in it as well. I prefer that type, along with "Sunday first" "cells".

Thanks much....

Maybe these calendars could be added to a Wiki page for marketing materials, or just something our users might like to download and print out.

I know that I look for printable calendars late in the year for the next year's needs.

It would be interesting to make a 12 page/month landscape calendar with a LibreOffice theme. The ones I download are PDF files, but I could try and find a "good" free Word/Writer or Excel/Calc 2014 12 page/month calendar template and work on making it LO themed. I print these one-month-per-page calendars out and use them on my refrigerator as my "master" calendar that is a copy of my small "book" one. I look at it daily. So if we could have a LO themed one, maybe it would look nice on an "office wall" or other area where more than the user could see it.
