Calendar Printing — How to Get Started

get started calendar printing

Ordering your calendars is easy … we do most of the work for you. Please click the links below for more details.

Collect your images

The first step is to gather the images, logos, and text that you want to use for your calendar.

How many photos?

Wall calendars have room for thirteen months inside (or you can print twelve months plus one 2-page spread with any text and/or photos that you want), and desk calendars have 12 months. You’ll need a photo for each month and a photo for the front cover. For wall calendars, you can also add a photo and/or text to the back cover.

Extra images and advertising

For wall calendars, we can include extra small photos in the blank spaces of each calendar grid. We are also happy to include advertising in these spaces, or we can make room under the calendar grid for advertising, or we can put advertising on the back cover or the extra 2-page spread. Don’t forget your logo, too — we’ll put it on the front cover, back cover, or anywhere you choose.

Captions, custom dates, & other text

Finally, you will need to gather the text information for the calendar. This includes captions for images, text or other info for the back cover or the extra 2-page spread, and custom date text (text to mark special events within the calendar grid).

Holidays & custom dates

For wall calendars, we will send you a simple spreadsheet you can use to choose holidays and to enter in custom date text. You can enter as many custom dates as you need.

E-mail to confirm upload

After you have finished uploading all of your files, including any advertising, extra images, extra text, or special instructions, let us know via e-mail and we’ll get started with your calendar. Your e-mail should also include contact details and your choice of calendar design for us to use.

View the electronic proof

Check your e-mail! Once we receive your complete order, we will begin working on the artwork. Usually in about three or four business days, we will e-mail you a link to your electronic proof.

Questions? Let us know!

If you have any questions about your calendar, please don’t hesitate to call or e-mail us. Likewise, if we have concerns about your order (maybe the resolution on one of your photos looks substandard, for example), we will contact you.

Proof and revise

The proof e-mail that we send you will have a link to a web page showing the entire calendar. Please review it carefully and reply to your proof e-mail with any corrections. We will gladly make revisions and send a new proof as many times as necessary — we’re not happy until you are!

Approve and print

Once you have approved the online proof, we can send you a paper proof (this adds a few days to the turn-around time), or we can send your calendar straight to the press. Depending on the quantity, we will ship your calendars to you about four to seven business days after your final proof approval.
