However, you should keep in mind that these calendars will be put up somewhere everyone will see. So try not to make it an eyesore and keep things simple. If possible, have a professional photographer do the heavy lifting. Don’t design a calendar you wouldn’t dare hang on your wall.

Promote Your Own Events

It’s not unusual to find calendars that include preprinted holidays. Why not highlight your company events? Of course, this would require you to plan things out at least a year in advance. But most businesses plan things out that far ahead anyway. You may as well include it in your marketing materials.

Company Calendars

Your calendars don’t necessarily have to be distributed to customers. You can also print calendars for your employees. Put your best photos to good use. You can fill your calendar up with photos commemorating company events, key accomplishments, or other special moments captured in the past year.

Customer Submissions

Use calendars to build a better rapport with your community. Ask your customers to submit photos of them with your products. Have them tell you through photos how your product has changed their life. They’ll be more than happy to share, especially when they find out that their story could be featured in your calendars for everyone to see.

Throwback Calendars

Use this chance to print calendars that feature old company photos. This gives people a chance to see your company in a new light. It also gives your company some credibility. If your company’s beginnings date back a few decades, customers will see how much you have evolved and be enticed to keep doing business with you.
