What type of paper should I choose to print my drilled stapled calendar on?
We offer a range of different stock options for drilled calendar printing to help you customise your print as much as possible. For inside pages, you can choose between a 120gsm uncoated and a 150gsm silk. The 120gsm option is the cheaper of the two and is slightly thinner to the touch, but it’s also the one that’s easiest to write on. It feels like a thicker, more premium version of standard office printer papger. 150gsm silk gives the pages a slightly glossier, sleek look, like a promotional flyer or magazine type of paper, that’s perfect for premium brands.
You can either keep the cover paper the same as the inside pages or choose a thicker stock for a sturdier feel. 160gsm uncoated is a writable stock that’s slightly thicker than the inside pages, but if you want to make a really big impact, we’d recommend the 250gsm silk – a lovely, silky, thick card that’ll keep your inside pages protected and look amazing at the same time.
How are my calendar books bound?
We bind stapled book calendars using a special machine called a Stitchliner. Sometimes called saddle stitching, it uses metal wire to stitch together the pages of your calendar. The pages are folded and lined up on top of each other in the correct order before being stapled, or stitched, together with the wire.
How do I hang my drilled calendar?
Hanging your custom calendar booklet is super easy! We’ve pre-drilled holes into the spot where you need to pin it. First, open the calendar to the page you want to display and lay it out flat – you may need to bend the pages back on themselves to flatten it properly. Hold it on the wall and carefully push a pin through the hole we’ve created. To change the page at the end of the month, remove it from the wall, change the page and re-pin.
How do I upload my calendar design?
Please place your order and then send your design to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or using WeTransfer.com if your file is over 20MB, with your web order number as the subject line. We’ll then create a proof for you to approve ASAP.
When will my printed calendars be delivered?
As long as you approve your proof before our cut off time of 6:30pm, your finished drilled calendars should be with you in just 3 working days. For example, if you approved your order by 6:30pm on a Monday, we’d dispatch your order on Wednesday and it’d be delivered on Thursday.
