How long will you need to design & print my calendar?
We need 4 working days to create your design and then we will email you a proof to check over. From the point that you approve your proof we offer two production speeds:
Standard Production - 50 calendars or less takes 5 working days (1 week) to print. 51 calendars or more takes 10 workings days (2 weeks). Orders over 1000 units may take up to 3 weeks.
Express Production - available for orders less than 500 units - we speed up production from 2 weeks to just 1 week. Express production carries a 25% uplift in price, calculated automatically if chosen.
Production lead-times start from point of proof approval and full payment receipt.
What information do you need to design my calendar?
We are very flexible when it comes to the design of your calendar. We ask that you upload your images, image captions, key dates & sponsors logos and any design brief notes that you think will help our designers.
Can I have several photos on each page?
Please supply up to 4 pictures per page. Our designers will crop & insert your images into our templates. If multiple images are being supplied please place your order online and then email your images to us afterwards detailing your order number in the subject line
How should I supply my images?
Please supply images in a digital format, ideally as a Tiff, Jpeg, Psd or Raw file (please do not send Microsoft Word or BMP files). The golden rule is the bigger the image file size the better the print quality. We will check all of your images and notify you if any are of poor quality.
How do you despatch my order and how long will that take?
Orders less than 2Kg are despatched via Royal Mail 1st class post. All bulk orders are despatched via overnight courier for delivery on the next business working day and will require a signature. The cost of despatch is calculated at checkout.
Do you supply discounts for charities?
We offer a seasonal discount structure aimed to encourage early orders. We have also designed our prices to offer massive savings for bulk orders. Our web prices quoted on the site are our best prices.
Do you supply proofs?
Yes we will email you a proof for checking prior to any production and you are welcome to make unlimited amendments to the proof - we want your calendar to be a success story! If you would rather have a hard copy proof this option is available to order at checkout.
Do the calendars come with envelopes and or cello bags?
No, we bulk pack your calendars in secure brown cartons but a range of additonal packaging options are available to order upon checkout, including paper and card envelopes and cello bags with and without headers. The cost of the packaging options can be viewed in the packaging tab here.
What machinery do you use to print your calendars?
We use high specfication Digital (Konica Minolta KM1085) & Litho (Heidelberg CD74) presses. Digital presses are used to print smaller quantities (usually 500 units or less) and larger runs are produced on our Heidelberg litho presses with inline coating & IR driers. We are commercial printers and are very proud of the quality of our production!
Do you print on environmentally friendly paper?
Yes all of our papers are FSC certified and part recycled. If you would like fully recycled paper just let us know and we will provide you with a quote. We are a fully FSC certified print company and we hold the Internationally recognised environmental quality standard ISO14001 and 9001.
