I agree it does look great,
But the ?13 is only ?5 delivery on top of the calender isn't it????
It says under the details that the price shown below, is the calender and the delivery charge.... Doesn't it???
Correct me if i'm wrong

Looks like your right from what I can see.
Little bit deceptive though with the 'calender(+?13)' but when you go to sub total it appears ?13

Michael747, lookslike you are right. Deceptive, as this format is usually delivery, but does state in the text that price is for both calendar & delviery.
Airpics, suggest to chane the appearance, most people scan through these & not read all the text and will come to same conclusion.
Anyhow, will order today

Sorry for not replying earlier, I didn't get notification that this post had been replied to.
In relation to the shipping costs of the calendars, the cost for shipping 1 calendar to the island of Ireland is EUR5.00
The page is laid out in such a way that you can order multiple calendars for different countries and pay the correct shipping rate. The bold red text above the "Add to cart" button explains the pricing structure:
Please select the number of calendars required from the menu below, the price indicated is the total price payable and includes shipping
I thought the page was fairly self explanatory but obviously people are getting confused, must look into the layout again.

While on the topic of the cost lads,
I have no problem paying for the P&P,
But has anyone else noticed when your calender arrived that
the postage only cost ?2.85!!! And the envelope of about ?0.15c.
They could have just put up the cost of the calender by ?2 instead of lieing!! It says it ?5.... Ah well....
It's only ?2 but it's the principal that rattles me.....
Anyway mine arrived there the other day, Looks great
Have to find somewhere to put it though

michael747 et al,
The hard back A3 envelopes cost approximately 1.60EUR, not 15c. The Air Corps set the calendar price, I calculate the shipping costs. Any excess cash in the shipping charges is used to help defray the credit card charges incurred (example: 79c for a single calendar to Ireland).
I can assure you that I or the Air Corps are not out to make a killing at your expense, all the above ensures that the Air Corps Museum gets the maximum amount of funding.

Was just wondering, a friend of mine said it to me when he saw it on his too!
Not trying to be annoying, but was just wondering, i'll tell my friend aswell.
Sorry if i presented it the wrong way the last time, as i said-
It's only ?2 anyway
All the best,

Hi Irish Air Pics
Just a little comment. You do realise that some folks can just save your images in your 1st post as Jpeg and print them off.....tada...free calender. Not that anyone would of course.

Eh... I'd say he already thought of that. That's why the pics are small .. The rez would be way too low, you wouldnt be able to read any of the writing or appreciate the shots in it so it would be a total waste of time and it would be a very crappy calander on A4 paper and would cost you about 20 euro in ink.
But you should go ahead if it makes you feel better.
