How to design and print calendars
There are two bindery options available for calendars. You have saddle stitch binding and wire-o binding.
Saddle stitch is the more common binding method of the two. The spine of the calendar is wired from the outside going in to hold all the pages in place. Pages would have the appearance of being stapled together in the middle. The binding appears more seamless compared to wire-o since the wires are not as visible.
Wire-o binding makes use of wire hooks that are then shut after they’re inserted in punched holes along the calendar’s spine. Aside from looking more sophisticated, pages can be turned easier and can be laid flat while open.
Whatever binding you choose, it would be placed on the top side of your calendar.
The purpose of having hole drilling is to enable you to hang your calendars. If you don’t want that option, simply indicate so in the dropdown menu. But if you want that option, we can add a hole that’s either 3/16”, 1/8" or 1/4" big.
