Make Your Own Calendar

Businesses looking for unique opportunities to promote themselves should look into custom calendar printing. When you make your own calendar, you’re creating a marketing tool that will last a long time. Not only are calendars a sought-after giveaway, they’re also displayed in plain sight. This makes your message visible to customers year-round.

We can help you create cheap calendars that are customized to your needs. Choose between 12-month, 14-month or 16-month calendars and 4 size options : 5" x 8.5", 6" x 6", 8.5” x 11” and 12” x 12”. Our cover paper options range from 80 lb. self cover paper to 10 pt. glossy/matte cardstock while inside pages range from 70 lb. uncoated paper to 10 pt. glossy/matte cardstock. You can bind your calendars through wire-o or saddle-stitch binding. You also have the option of adding hole drilling (3/16”, 1/8", 1/4") to your order.

Calendar Printing

Our ordering process cannot be simpler. Simply select the specs you need and upload your design file from your computer or straight from Dropbox.

While we prefer that files be in PDF format, we accept files saved as TIF, TIFF, InDesign, or SIT files. Files cannot be larger than 100 MB (contact customer service if you need help uploading files larger than 100 MB) and should have a resolution that’s at least 300 DPI. If you’re starting from a blank calendar or need assistance creating a photo calendar, feel free to reach out to us.

How to design and print calendars


Calendars are available in four sizes: 5.5" x 8.5", 6" x 6", 8.5" x 11" and 12" x 12".


We offer 12-month, 14-month and 16-month calendar formats.

Cover and Inside Paper

To add a layer of protection, we recommend a thick 10 pt. glossy cardstock as cover paper though 80 lb. and 100 lb. self cover paper is also available. For the inside paper, we print them on either 70 lb. uncoated paper, 80 lb. glossy or matte paper and 100 lb. glossy or matte paper.

Bindery and Binding Placement

There are two bindery options available for calendars. You have saddle stitch binding and wire-o binding. 

Saddle 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.

Hole Drilling

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality for the Price! Ordered the 12x12 calendars for our company's 10th Anniversary and they were perfect for our tradeshow. Local printers and other online printers couldn't compete with the price. The paper thickness is really nice and the colors are super vibrant. The art department also helped us with a minor font issue which they quickly resolved. Very happy with this product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Quality, Poor Color I ordered these calendars a couple of weeks ago. The print quality itself is good, but the color is pretty off. For some reason, all of my pictures look green/gray-ish.
