Calendars can be that and much more.
• Calendars are invented to help us recognize memorable moments and days in our lives. Collectively, we know better when to celebrate, when to be prepared, and such.
• Calendars, however unaware we might be, helped us write down in print certain observations and milestones that helped shape our history. Through it, we trace back our history as well. And from these insights, we gained more information to help us live and understand life more clearly.
• On a personal note, calendar can indeed be something handy that makes us more organized. But it doesn't have to end there. Calendars are excellent New Year gifts for loved ones, for company employees, and clients too.

Cut your work in half and let your calendar printing company solve all your printing worries and anxiety. Reduce your printing anxiety and know what things to double check in your calendars.
There are pretty basic things that you should always check in your design before you print. This is important so you don't waste time re-designing or fixing your calendar and then waiting for the printer to review it all over again.
Calendar printing is not as delicate as you would have imagined. Plus, if you have a professional printing company in your arm, you can be sure that they'll offer you consultations, pieces of advice and of course service to get the most out of your calendars.
So, what are the points that would have to remember in calendar printing?
Layout can be applied in two ways. First is the layout of your design, where all elements of your design are placed in the right positions, achieving a complete and unified composition.
Second, the layout of your calendar should fit the template set by the printers. Your calendar design should fit the dimensions and are aligned similar to the printer's requirements.
Do not be overly confused with what is the right size you should design your calendars. You only need to extend your work by 1/8 of an inch on all sides so you do not get unwanted white spaces along the borders of your calendars when it is trimmed down to size.
Besides, you will only be paying for the exact size of the calendars you order. This 1/8 inch will eventually be cut off and discarded.
3. Shrinking File?
Some people might wonder why their files had shrunk when the pre-press team gave them a print-ready file of their design or proof. Remember that you have to put in all your important text and graphic in the safe zone, far away from the trim area.
People who disregard this may see just how their original design's important text are moved or the whole design adjusted so that it won't be accidentally cut off.
Some graphics are placed altogether beyond the trim size. This signals the pre-press that it is meant to be cut-off. Running texts too, which become designs themselves, are cut off too when it goes beyond the trim are unto the bleed.
There are many dos and dont's in calendar printing. But it really does pay to know just where the right spaces are in your calendars and how you can effectively use them. Talk to your professional printer now and achieve truly amazing calendars that would definitely help you remember better.
