It is calculated in business days, starting at the next occurrence of 9:00 AM Eastern on the 1st business day after the proof is approved. U.S. Press is closed Saturdays, Sundays and all major holidays; thus, these days are not included in the production schedule.
How does a bi-monthly view calendar differ from a standard wall calendar?A bi-monthly view calendar displays two months at a time on each spread, which reduces the overall page count and subsequently is a more economical option.
What is UV coating?UV coating is a protective finish that is added to the cover of your calendars. It provides an extra shiny appearance to make your graphics really stand out.
Can I hang these on a wall?Yes, these calendars include a hole drilled for easy hanging.
Can I send in photos and you put my calendar together for me?Yes, we certainly can. If you do not have a print ready PDF and you only have images for each month, please select the “Design my calendar” option on our pricing calculator. We will place your images, logo (if applicable), and contact information on our 12 month calendar template for you.
How are these calendars bound together?Our standard wall calendars are bound together via saddle-stitching, which involves staples inserted into the spine of the calendar.
