NOVEMBER 2020 NEWSLETTER

14 YEARS

At this time 14 years ago, at the request of one of our Isles of Scilly retailer friends, I was working with our graphic designer, Jesse Wilson of Beyond Media Productions, on the design of our very first Isles of Scilly Calendar for 2009. Now it is hard to realise that here we are all those years later having continued publishing every year since and with our current Isles of Scilly 2021 Calendar selling wonderfully well despite the current Covid pandemic and we are now working on the design of our 14th edition for 2022 to be published early next year.

And all of this has been made possible by you and our many wonderful loyal customer friends buying them, in many cases every year, since that first 2009 edition.

Production of all of our calendars, greetings cards, postcards and photo prints starts with me being fortunate enough to be able to go with cameras and lenses to the many beautiful and often wild and remote places which I and you passionately love, looking for what I hope will be inspirational photo compositions to share with you, capturing the essence of those special moments and places.

I cannot adequately express to you how much it means to me to hear so often, as I do from so many, of the pleasure my pictures and our publications bring. I continue to love what I am doing in Blue Planet Images and in these worrying times think of it as an honour and a privilege to be able to bring to you in some small way the pleasure of happy memories of those special places we all love even when we may not be able to travel there right now. Let us hope that life and travel will become less problematic for us all in 2021.


ISLES OF SCILLY 2021 CALENDAR

CHRISTMAS SHOPPING
SPECIAL OFFER EXTENDED

Have you bought your copy or copies yet for next year?

Buy directly from us online or by telephone - it is quick, easy and secure and without needing a facemask or worrying about “social distancing”!!!

Our online and telephone sales are even higher this year despite the Covid-19 pandemic. With remaining stocks of our calendars selling very well, if you want to be sure of having yours for next year and as Christmas gifts, I recommend buying from us sooner rather than later – especially if you are one of our “regulars”. I don’t want to find myself having to say to you “sorry, we’re sold out”.

Meanwhile we are extending our “EARLY BIRD” offer valid “until further notice and whilst stocks last”:

BUY THREE – GET ONE FREE

BUY SIX – GET TWO FREE

&

IF YOU WISH TO:

BUY NINE – GET THREE FREE

(one lady in Yorkshire recently bought 12 and got 4 free)

There is no need to add your free copies into your “basket” when placing a qualifying order online. Any extra free copies to which you will be entitled will be automatically added into your order prior to dispatch, also without incurring any extra postage and packing cost when sending to a single shipping address.

To view and place your order, click on the calendar image above or here.


AFFORDABLE PRINTS – A GREAT CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEA

For all who love the Isles of Scilly our very reasonably priced A4 size full colour photo prints at £6.00 each plus P. & P. make a lovely gift. Many buy 2 to hang as a pair together, in your home or office. Click on the image below or here to view and choose them in our website and to place an online order:

We sell these prints unmounted and shipped flat ready for mounting and framing as you choose. When the current Covid restrictions are lifted and our local picture framing shop is permitted to reopen we can again discuss options for ordering these mounted.

Because of the risk of glass breaking with framed and glazed prints in postal transit we think it wise to leave it to you to arrange the framing locally.

U.K. ROYAL MAIL LAST POSTING DATES AND OUR LAST ORDERING DATES FOR CHRISTMAS

I shall as usual send to you this information for your reference in early December and ask that in case you wish to order and ask us to send your gifts to a third party shipping address on your behalf, please do so allowing more time than usual because of Covid restrictions and the expected longer queues / lines in Post Offices in the final weeks before the holidays.

The first of the Air Mail recommended “last posting” dates in the U.K. for Christmas is Wednesday 9th December.


WEBSITE SECURITY UPGRADE

For your information, in line with industry good practice our website managers Amazing Internet have recently extended and enhanced the security encryption which covers your visits to our website from the shopping pages, where it of course has always existed, to now cover your entire visit to every page of our website.

As always, if you have any concerns or question concerning your security when visiting our website and shopping with us online or by telephone you can either email or call me personally on: 01872 222601 from within the U.K. or +44 1872 222601 from any other part of the world.


AND FINALLY:

With so many most welcome newcomers to our website I think it may well be interesting if I recount the origins of the name of Blue Planet Images which I thought up and founded long before the first series of the BBC Television “Blue Planet” series had been first announced. This I plan to include in one of these Newsletters in the New Year.

Many thanks and my best wishes,

Robert Sanger
