Calendars

Do you print your own calendar? Looking at the possibility of printing 1,000 copies to sell. Who have you used? What is your experience?

Thank you,

Re: Calendars

I've used both Zazzle and VistaPrint. Like other online printers, they are great for reproducing vector art ("graphics"). However, good reproductions of images with greater color gamut (photographs, scanned images, photos of paintings, etc.) can be iffy.

I've also used the local Fedex (used to be Kinkos) store that has a "print shop" inside and found the same thing, so would hazard a guess that other businesses with "print shops" inside pretty much run the same way quality-wise.

My suggestion would be to find a shop that will provide proofs of the calendars, not digital image images of them, but paper copies. One will have to pay for them, but a shop looking for a long term client will often deduct that from the total cost of the order.

Re: Calendars

The main problem with purchasing calendars in bulk is that they become progressively less popular towards the end of the year then totally obsolete in 2021. Therefore you may end up with left over stock.

A way around this is to purchase magnetic calendars designed with an image & your website adjacent to the calendar.

When the year expires, simply cut the calendar off, leaving your image & website.

That way you are left with a product to sell regardless of the current calendar year.

I design my own using Vista Print.

Hope that helps.

Michael.
