Frequently Asked Calendar Questions
What type of bindery services do you offer?
There are essentially two types of bindery styles for calendars: Saddle stitched and Wire-O. The saddle stitching has your calendar folded in half and uses two staples through the center of the spine to keep it together. The Wire-O will require the paper to be cut, drilled and bound with a spiral ring of wire.
What paper choices do you offer?
All types. However what paper to choose has more to do on the intended audience of your publication and your budget, as paper is a major component of a magazine’s printing cost.
There are multiple factors regarding papers used to be aware of. One is the weight of the paper, as when you buy paper you are paying by the pound. That said, you always want to be sure you are not going too light with the cover or outer signature, for as you can mix the weights you do not want the post office to tear your magazine when delivering.
Another way of controlling your budget is by choosing different and potentially lower, paper grades. For a very high end publication, a grade 1-2 paper stock would be appropriate. Standard stock would be a grade 3, which is what most presses use today. However, if you are selling inexpensive widgets and are therefore on a limited budget, you probably would best be served choosing a lesser grade, such as a 4 or 5. These grades have ground wood pulp in them and are less refined.
Alternative offset or alternative newsprint stocks is still is a good looking paper at a good price, and thus a good option for controlling your magazine’s printing costs.
Why Is Page Count Important in Controlling Costs?
When requesting a printing quote for a calendar, many times customers ask for a 12 month version or sometimes for a custom quote of 16, 18 or even 24 months.
The average page count is 28 pages, with one page for an image and another for the monthly grid. For best results, if all of the paper used is of the same stock, 100# gloss book is recommended due to the fact that if any lighter in weight, the paper will rip at the hole, as it hangs on the nail from its own weight. The benefit of using 28 pages on all the same paper, is that it is only two forms (press signatures) will be going through the press, if the page size is 8.5 x 11″ or slightly larger. You can decide to add a heavier cover for a 24-page-plus-separate-cover configuration, but then you will have three forms going through the press and are adding a bit more to your cost.

Be aware that variances occur from press to press, and even paper to paper and most times there will be noticeable variances from what your desk top printer can reproduce as compared to a printing press. While we guarantee our printing will be free from defects, we cannot guarantee that the color will be exactly what you are expecting.
If your job is color critical, please request a digital color proof and/or a press check to make sure that your digital files will output the colors you are expecting before printing the full product run.
