Custom Calendars offer a unique opportunity to keep your brand or message in front of your customers month after month. Often focused more on design than text, Calendars can showcase your message in the image chosen for each month, as well as the holidays highlighted. Additional targeted information can be included, such as class schedules for karate lessons, the opening and closing of fishing and hunting seasons, or the phases of the moon, to name a few examples.
We bind our calendars with saddle stitching, but other options for binding are available. You can select these by submitting custom estimate requests by clicking on “Estimates” near the top left corner of the page.
The finished size for calendars is most commonly the 12” X 12” size on 100lb Gloss Text-Weight Paper with a cover of 100lb Gloss Cover Stock. Calendars almost always feature front and back full colour printing (4/4) and all sheets have two-sided AQ coating.
While calendars can be used as merchandise you can sell, they make a good marketing tool as a giveaway or gift item. With one of these hanging on the wall, your business brand or message stays in front of your customers each day. And they are fantastic for helping to create excitement about seasonal events and special promotions because your customer is greeted with a new image or message each month when the page turns.
When designing your calendar, you may want to incorporate a QR code into your design. QR codes can link to your website or a special landing page to provide more information than could ever be represented on your calendar, and because this information is online, it is easy for you to update this information without having to reprint anything.

Yes, we provide two types of Adobe InDesign templates: one blank in case you want to do the entire design yourself, and another with the calendar already set up.

Yes, we do offer design services in case you need help with setting up the pages.
