Paper and Finishing

Paper

Most promotional wall calendars are printed on 70-lb paper. Our standard paper is a premium quality 80-lb gloss paper with matching 8-pt cover and you have the option to upgrade to 100-lb / 10-pt. Both weights are also available in environmentally-friendly paper that is produced using certified sustainable forest management practices.

Finishing

Binding refers to how your wall calendar is held together. Choose our most popular option, saddle stitching (2 staples), or dress up your wall calendar with plasticoil (spiral) or wire-o (also called "double loop" binding). Most people prefer wire-o. The main difference between plasticoil and wire-o is that wire-o allows your wall calendar to hang in perfect alignment; and with plasticoil, the bottom half is always 1/8" out of alignment.

Shrink Wrapping

To give your wall calendar a much more substantial feel, we can insert a sheet of corrugated cardboard into the middle and individually shrink wrap it.

Templates and Colors

Templates & Colors

All our templates are designed for businesses and organizations. Most are available in 16 different colors and you have the option to uploading entire pages that you've created yourself instead of using one of our templates. Your calendar duration can be 12, 13, 16 or 17 months.

Images and Logos

Images

Photos should be 300 pixels per inch, based on the print size. If you’re not sure what this means, download our TipSheet about resolution. If you plan to upload entire pages, please download this full page preparation TipSheet.

Logos

Logos can cause big headaches when you're designing a custom wall calendar. Unless the logo is exactly what the designers had in mind when they created the template, there are usually problems with shape, size, positioning or cropping. With our proprietary custom wall calendar software all logo positions can be re-shaped, re-sized and re-positioned!

Placement and Editing

Text Placement & Editing

Text can be problem with custom wall calendars. We learned early on that reducing or increasing the number of words to make things fit wasn't really good enough. Our software now has most of the text editing functions you're familiar with, including line spacing adjustment.

Language

Create your custom photo calendar in English, Spanish or French. You can also make a bilingual calendar - English/Spanish and English/French are available.
