The purpose of calendars can go far beyond tracking important dates and events. For businesses, artists, and organizations, they also make excellent marketing tools. Calendars are unique because they allow you to show off your projects through a medium your clients or fans will use daily. You can also choose the right design options to support your project’s specific objectives.
Wall calendars, for instance, appeal to a broad range of audiences and provide ample space for showcasing your artwork or designs. With 24 interior pages (28 including cover and inside cover pages), standard 12-month calendars create many opportunities to advertise your business or side project with your most captivating images. You can even highlight your favorite visuals in a spread at the center of the calendar to give purchasers something they can display long after the year ends. If you’re not sure where to start, here are some industry standards for your consideration:
12-Month Wall Calendar Industry Standards
- Binding: Saddle stitch or wire bound
- Size: 12 inches x 12 inches
- Cover Paper: 10pt gloss
- Cover Finish: Gloss varnish
- Inside Paper: 105lb gloss
Every option listed above is customizable, so you can select the features that reflect the scope of your project. For example, while saddle stitch binding is more traditional, wire bound calendars have an open format and are easier to fold. You can also adjust the inside and cover paper types and cover finish to bring your calendar to life within budget. Ultimately, every decision is entirely yours to make!
