It’s Time to Print Your Corporate Calendars

It's Time to Print Your Corporate Calendars

A photographer's promotional wall calendarAs we head into autumn, it’s time to consider printing of your corporate calendars for 2022. These are great give-aways and will remind your customers and prospects of your brand and contact details every day of the year. People are more likely to use them if they are received in good time, certainly no later than January 1st, so our advice is to start planning their design and production now.

Calendars are great give-aways and will remind your customers and prospects of your brand – and contact details – every day of the year.

Calendar design

Calendars should look interesting and attractive, so need to feature graphics or images that will be engaging for recipients; after all, each image will be visible for a whole month. If too corporate or ‘salesy’, people may well just bin them, so design and content needs careful consideration.

Calendar design & artwork service

We also offer a design/artwork service. So, if you’re unsure about design and print-ready artwork files, you can leave that to us. Calendars should be well-designed & attractive if you want people to use them & keep them up all year.We can supply free quotations for design and artwork as well as for printing, so you will know exactly what to expect well before production begins.

The calendar year

Standard calendars start from January and run to the end of December. However, perhaps there’s a good reason why you require some other date range. For example, if you’re marketing to accountants or the financial sector, consider producing a calendar for the financial year, starting in April. Or, if you’re giving calendars to educational staff, another example is academic calendars. These usually run from September when the first term of the academic year begins. At Southside Print, anything is possible!

Calendars are great for fundraising too! Charities and fundraising personnel could even consider pre-selling them so they know how many to order.

Calendar Specification

Our standard calendars are wall calendars, but we can also produce other types like desktop calendars.Our standard calendars are wall calendars. These are available in A4 and A3 sizes (portrait format). However, we can also produce bespoke sizes as well as desktop calendars on request. Simply ask for more information or, if you have a design in mind, talk to us to see what’s possible. Like quotations, advice is free at Southside Print.

Standard wall calendars contain 13 pages (one for the cover and 12 for the months of the year), usually printed on beautiful silk photo paper. They have a hanging loop at the top and a protective ‘frost’ covering. Standard ones are hung from the short edge (portrait format), but if you require a landscape format calendar or a different type of paper, again that’s no problem and we can print something completely bespoke for you.

Please note that the wire at the top is usually silver in colour, but other colours are available on request. Please allow 10mm in your design, if supplying it, for the wiring area at the top.
