Calendars are a popular tool for keeping your brand or message in front of your customers month after month. Often focused more on design than text, Calendars showcase one month at a time along with your chosen image or message.

They are available with an optional hole to make them easy to hang.

Our Calendars are bound with saddle stitching.

ART:
Customer must supply appropriately sized print ready art for any images and logos they wish to use on the product. Editing of customer supplied artwork will be at an additional cost.

Marketing Tips

Calendars are a great gift or merchandise item for customers to remind them of your business or message each month. Advertisements, images, or other helpful information engages customers as the year rolls on. They are a smart way to keep focus on your message and build excitement about products or special events. When the customer turns the page over at the end of each month, they are greeted with something new.

Our standard sizes, listed below, are the most popular in the industry:

  • 8.5″ x 11″
  • 12″ x 12″

Hole Punching is putting one or more holes through your printed piece. Although we call this “hole punching”, it is actually accomplished with a paper drill. Common applications include Calendars and Hang Tags.

  • No Hole
  • 1/8″ Hole

Please leave a minimum of 1/4″ from trim to the beginning of the hole. See the image below:

File Preparation

In order to ensure your files are print-ready, we recommend that you upload them in PDF format. When you generate a print-ready PDF, your computer will use the settings in Adobe Acrobat Distiller or any other PDF generating programs you may use. Please make sure that these are set properly before generating your PDF file.

We also accept .JPG (JPEG), .EPS and .TIF (TIFF) file types, however PDF is the preferred format.

Check your file to make sure it meets our file creation guidelines. This will help speed up the production of your project and give your printed piece the best results.

  1. Use the CMYK colorspace (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, blacK). These are industry standard printing colors. CMYK colors are different than RGB (Red, Green, Blue), which are used to display colors on your screen.
  2. Use a minimum resolution of 300 dpi for image files.
  3. Specify trim area with crop marks. (Don’t place crop marks inside the work area.)
  4. Artwork should have 1/8″ (0.125″) bleed extending past the trim line. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge.
  5. Safe Area is the 1/8″ (0.125″) area inside the trim line. Do not put critical information or images within the Safe Area. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge.
  6. If you want printed borders, they must be placed a minimum of 1/8″ (0.125″) inside the trim line and include bleed. This is to prevent minor cutting variations from leaving unintended results at the trim edge.
