Resource Center » Tips and Tricks When Buying Custom Calendars

Custom calendars are great marketing tools and are especially useful as customer gifts during the holiday season.

Companies sometimes use custom calendars as a form of advertising. Calendars are effective promotional products because customers are reminded of a company's services every time they see the logo, the name, and the contact information printed on them. It’s not uncommon for popular design calendars to be sold out by the end of the previous year, because those who purchase them are prepared to hand them out as client gifts in December and January.

Even if consumers have never previously done business with your company, it can still be an effective marketing strategy to give a custom calendar as a gift. Because they are intended for daily use, a calendar is a thoughtful gift to offer consumers—especially during the holiday season. Whether it is hung on a wall, it sits on a desk, or it is placed on a refrigerator, a custom calendar has the potential to display your information to a customer every day. Customers also appreciate not having to search for your telephone number or email address; they can easily contact you when that information is on the calendar that you've given them.

So, where do you start when you want a custom calendar created? You should always choose a reputable company that is able to produce quality printing and that offers an assortment of design options. It's true that experienced custom calendar companies can make them fairly quickly and at any time of the year, but anyone wishing to order custom calendars (especially as a first time customer) is encouraged to place orders as early as possible. Since first-time customers may want to make several design changes, keep in mind that it may take multiple edits to get the design just right. Ordering early also allows customers access to all of the design company’s resources before the seasonal rush when the presses experience high use. Some custom calendar printers even offer special early bird pricing as an incentive for ordering early!

It is possible to create custom calendars with different product displays on every page, with special coupons on every page, or simply with different scenes of your company's choice. The design possibilities for a custom calendar are almost endless. Custom calendars are also great promotional tools to promote specific dates; calendars can sometimes feature your company’s special events (like special sales or the offering of seasonal products) by highlighting them on the calendar as a reminder to customers to visit your business on those dates.

Just remember to order your promotional calendars early!
