What type of paper should I choose to print my stapled calendar on?
We offer two stocks for the inside pages. These are 150gsm silk and 120gsm uncoated stock. The 150gsm option is slightly thicker, which is great for a premium feel if you’re looking for calendar printing that really impresses. The 120gsm is uncoated, which means it’s the easiest type of paper to write on.
On the cover, you can choose to keep it the same as the inside pages (self cover), 250gsm silk or 160gsm uncoated. If you are wanting to write on the cover, or want a slightly thicker stock, 160gsm is a great choice. 250gsm silk is one of our most impressive, thick stocks, meaning it’ll look and feel great – and keep the inside pages more protected from getting dogeared throughout the year.
How are my calendar books bound?
We use a special machine called a Stitchliner that uses metal wire to stitch together the pages of your calendar. This method is also called stapling. The pages are folded and lined up on top of each other in the correct order before being stapled.
How do I hang my stapled calendar?
To hang your stapled calendar, open it up to the correct month and lay it out flat. To flatten it properly, you may need to fold it back on itself. Hold the calendar up to where you want it on the wall, then very carefully pin the middle at the top of the page so it hangs.
You will need to make the hole yourself, but this should be very easy to do by using a sharp pin.
How do I upload my stapled calendar design?
When you add your order to basket, you’ll be prompted to upload your artwork straight away – you can also upload it in the basket.
If this doesn’t work, your artwork might be too big. In this case, place your order and then use WeTransfer.com to send your artwork to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and quoting your web order number as the subject line and we’ll check your artwork and send you a proof 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 stapled 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.
