I'm with you there. Not looking hugely likely, right now.

You guys are lucky in the States, they charge more there. 5 sales, best $36. Well done anyway!

Just had two US calendar sales pop in for perhaps five times that previously seen for UK licenses. The dates are odd:

 

Country: North America ; Usage: Consumer goods ;  Media: Calendar ;  Print run: up to 100,000 ;  Placement: Inside ;  Start: 24-April-2020 ; End: 24-April-2021 ; Additional Details: Use of image for use on note cards, greeting cards and other stationary & printed products. One year rights granted starting January 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020.

 

A calendar for this year normally goes on sale in the last months of the previous year, so perhaps seven months ago. I probably shouldn't complain, given the high value.

I work with a few calendar companies and they generally print in August of the previous year, and start sending out contracts as early as late January the year before, but the contract provides for payment after March of the "calendar" year - i.e., the contract is signed in early to mid-2019, calendar goes to press and is released August 2019, it's a 2020 calendar so you are paid after March of 2020. 

 

Congrats on multiple sales! Are you willing to share the "high value" you received?

$225 each. Generally forum members don't share actual values, the theory being that a customer may see a figure that another has paid which may be lower and therefore knock their fee down. In this case I'd be quite happy for future calendar sales to match these ones!

Thanks. That's an excellent price. Since you said $$$, I figured it wasn't going to be one we'd rather not become public. Appreciate your sharing. $450 for two photos is excellent! Congrats!

Enjoyed looking thru your collection. Your name is often in the Found Images thread.

Sorry to hijack the thread, but...is it just me or does there seem to be a widening of results here?  It just appears that there have been quite a few more $$$ sales than in the recent past, combined with a lot more tiny $ sales and a boom in PU/presentations. A lot of decent value licenses seem to be coming out of the USA (no surprise there), but also quite a few v good results from Germany.

I'm afraid that this is the best that I can offer right now, but it feels somewhat positive for me.  My uploads for this month are now at 200+.  Now I know that that is chicken-feed and a bog-standard monthly effort for many here (there are those who would do that in a day, every day - I'm thinking in particular of someone who used to post here v regularly for a few years!). But for me this is major - it's my highest monthly upload ever🤯 I am well aware that this in no way equates to selling more here (even relative to my own paltry efforts), and I don't just throw everything to the wall to see what sticks, but I'm pretty rubbish at being brave enough to be selective to sell!  I believe (and hope!) that most of my predominately editorial (that's what I've found sells for me here) uploads this month will prove effective a few months down the line.  If they do, then they'll be getting 50% at least. :)

Still a good effort there....we can only do what's relative to us...but the more pics in the lottery, gives us more chance of a return stating the obvious...I have been catching up on a backlog of images myself....It gives us something to do in these troubled times...It's still positive, you have to appreciate what opportunities we individually have.
