Say hello to 2013 with a new calendar!

Can you believe it’s that time of the year again? A new year is just around the corner, and something every household/office needs for this new beginning is a new calendar. At Trendz Print Media we specialize in all shapes, styles, and sizes of calendar printing, offering a wide range of paper stocks and grades to accommodate any budget. We always offer our clients custom printed calendars, meaning you can use your own photos or stock images: either way, you will pay the same price, unlike many other Vancouver printing companies who offer cheap pricing only if selected from their pre-printed images. As an added service we also have fully functioning templates that are easy to use, which you can download from our website: our templates are modern, clean, and suite any design or style.

Here are a few things clients need to be aware of when setting up files for calendar printing:

  •  For each month of the year, the picture you see on-screen (with the month below) will NOT be the picture that matches up that month when the hard copy is printed out.   Something we advise is to always come into the office to see a hard copy sample of the calendar printed out before doing a whole run.  (Please note that the sample is done free of charge)
  • Calendars are a great way to advertise, so be sure to have your contact details predominant on each page. Make your business name visible, add your logo wherever you can, and be sure to put in all of your contact details (phone, web, email, etc.)
  • If you are an organization looking to fundraise, a great way to do so is with calendar printing. What organizations can do is advertise select sponsor businesses on different months and let them add in a coupon. That way, the advertising businesses can pay for the calendar printing, as it’s a low cost advertising for them.
  • Be aware of the stocks and finishing you choose, as you want your calendar to give off the right impression.  At Trendz Print Media we print our calendars with a 12pt gloss cover, and 80lb gloss text insides. We finish off your calendars with either saddle stitching or spiral binding, and a drill hole for hanging.
