This is the second year we've used Printing Center USA for our annual calendar. We're a non-profit dog rescue, so quality at a great price matters. We are grateful for the non-profit discount that was provided to us! The calendars have looked fantastic- great color and quality. And they arrived quickly! We will continue to use Printing Center USA for our future calendars!

I used the InDesign template provided on the website and the calendars came out exactly as designed. The quality of the paper is very good for the price, the calendars were well packaged and actually arrived a day earlier than my selected delivery date. I will definitely use this service again.

I have been creating calendars as Christmas gifts for ten years now. I have tried many different printers and have never been completely satisfied. Now I am. The quality of the ink and paper used is top notch. The bulk discount also allowed me to purchase full wall size calendars for the price I paid for desktop calendars in the past. Delivery was fast. Love the whole experience. I will be back next year.

I was pleasantly surprised with the high quality calendar we received. I got a lot of compliments with the quality of the paper, the sharpness of the images and just the overall look of the calendar. I was very appreciative that Mike called to let me know of a problem with the images that I first submitted. I was able to fix the problem, upload the new images and they did the rest. Thank you Mike and the rest of the team! I have been getting calendars printed for our company for the past 9 years, none of them have even been close to the quality of the calendars that I received. I will be giving Printing Center USA all of my future orders!

Calendars were printed and shipped quickly after order. Impressive quality for the price, no one else I've used comes close. Colors are a little more intense than what I calibrated for so I would recommend backing off the saturation for submitted images about 5%. I'll definitely be using them again!

Been a return customer for several years. Product quality has been top notch every time. Had some issues with the order process this year and had posted a two star review because of it. Had the owner, Craig, contact me. He was really concerned that he figure out what happened and work to make it right not just for me, but the process going forward. His customer service went above and beyond in my opinion. Very happy with the way it was handled after that. Got my calendars and they're great as usual!

I'm very happy with the end product - except for my 1st order when I chose spiral binding. Unfortunately, the 2nd line of text that I added to January and May is lost in the spiral binding. It looks pretty messy. Perhaps your template needs to take spiral binding into account so that there are perimeters to NOT put text?? Customer service is excellent though.

The calendars came on Monday - and the printing is GREAT! Part of my photography is doing reproduction prints for artists, so color rendition is important to me. The prints are just what I was looking for, the glossy stock looks great - just a great job all around.

I liked best your on-line calendar maker. It gave me everything I needed to make a personalized calendar with my artwork and the birthday pictures of my extended family. I used your friendly on-line chat to get answers to some questions I had - very quick and effective. The cost was some of the lowest I could find, and the quality of the paper and printing of highest standard. Well done!

Being new to the process of creating calendars I had questions, lots of questions. The folks at Printing Center USA were VERY responsive and helpful. One of the staff even walked me through over the phone how to correct a major issue in a matter of minutes. I searched for a long time to find top quality at prices my customers could afford, and I found it with this company. I will order again and again with Printing Center USA. Thank you so much, the only way I think I could be happier is if I had ordered a larger quantity!

I thought I was reordering the calendars just as they were printed before. The last page was not printed as before, apparently because it was a special request. Otherwise, the quality and delivery were both excellent.

I was very pleased today to be notified by UPS that my second order of calendars will be here tomorrow. Way in advance of what I expected and of what our estimate was. While I am very pleased I have an issue with Printing Center. I had previous ordered calendars and Printing Center called me to inform me of an issue with text I had along the bottom of each month’s photo. The issue was that the binding would cut into the text and so I moved the text up to accommodate this issue. My complaint is you could call me to inform me of this issue but could not ask if I was certain I wanted to order 2016 calendars in October of 2016. I understand I sign an approval - But this is an issue that screams of negligence on your part. While I am have been very pleased with your product and service I believe I will shop around when it is time once again to purchase annual calendars.

I liked that this was an online editable template; however I found difficulty with editing type that I added to my calendar. Often times the software would freeze causing me to need to restart the browser multiple times, other times I had to delete the type box and try to do a new one. The calendars delivered were as pictured on the screen. I was pleased with their quality. We had an order of 500 and many of the covers of our calendars had blotchy white marks from printing. Customer service was helpful in making sure my firm in hand date was possible, we had to pay more for shipping to ensure the calendar was here on time. It was delivered as paid for and promised.

I checked many other print companies. This is one was the best and easier. The only thing we had a confusion about the shipping and the 4 days production. We called several times and maybe they need to let us know couple of things to be aware of. It would be nice when I call to give us options on your website. Specially if it is our first time. Overall it was easier. People really liked our calendars. Thank you.

I have used print on demand services for printing my nature calendars for the past six years. This is the first time I've used printing center usa and I am amazed at the great quality and price, hands down better than any printing service I've used before so I will be a returning customer. Service was great, I was sent a proof right away and the rest of the calendars were produced and mailed in a timely manner.

I don't usually post reviews, but I'll make an exception for Printing Center USA. Their service is so personal, I almost think I'm back before the internet, when people still used quaint telephones and spoke to you in person. The staff is very friendly and more important, helpful, and has gone above board to make sure my printing is right.

This company did a great job for me. I had calendars printed. First of all, I was able to design every inch of it - front and back covers and all interior pages - which most of the online printing companies don't allow. That was great. The quality of the printing was gorgeous. Nice paper, Nice printing. The price was very reasonable which I really appreciate since I have so many done. And the turnaround time was quite fast. I don't have anything to complain about. Thanks.

The calendars we purchased from Printing Center USA looked very professional, and the turn around was quite reasonable. We used the template they provided with Adobe software, and had very few adjustments to make. The price was reasonable, and the calendars were delivered before my actual due date. The quality of paper was excellent - and the cover had a nice, glossy finish. I was very pleased with the customer service and follow up I received with Printing Center USA. I would recommend them for your printing needs! We plan on continuing our photo contest and would use the company again next year.

HOW TO CREATE A CALENDAR FUNDRAISER

At PrintingCenterUSA, our purpose here is to give ideas on how to a create a fundraising calendar and help your school or non-profit organization raise money and support your activities.

The majority of these ideas and information for fundraising calendars can be applied to Non-Profits, Educational Institutions, Schools, PTA, Community Organizations, Humane Societies, Animal Organizations, Religious or Church Organizations, Sports Teams, Fire Departments, Police Departments and other fundraising activities. Use as few or as many ideas as you like to inspire your sales team.

Many organizations have had great success in obtaining sponsors to support the upfront cost of printing their calendars before they go to press. Having upfront sponsors also adds extra profits from calendar sales, thus enabling your school or organization to focus on designing and selling your fundraising calendar.

DESIGN
Online Design & Photos
  • Design calendar yourself or let students or associates create their fundraising calendar.
  • If You Have Your Calendar Print Ready PDF Files (Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator) word > get a price> order> upload >
  • Utilize our Free Downloadable Templates and Layout Guides to give you a quick start using your design adobe software. Click Here
  • Don’t Have a Calendar Design Program? Our online photo calendar maker maybe just what you are looking for. Just upload your images, drag and drop and we’ll make it pop. Click Here.
  • Need Professional Design Help. Click Here
Let Your Imagination Flow
  • What story do I want to tell my audience with pictures? Do I want to highlight my products, services, people who work for me, etc?
  • Look at existing calendars you like, look at pictures you have. Walk around look at your story, talk to fellow employees and form an idea for your calendar. Sit back and look at the story you want to tell and visualize what pictures will tell that story best.
  • Rough out your story: Say you are a manufacturing company and want to show your production facilities and the products you produce or you are a community leader and want to promote your town. What pictures would best tell your story?
  • Grab your digital camera or smart phone and start taking pictures.
  • Need pictures or images why not buy them? You can download great images from online stock photography sites such as Fotolia.com for only a couple of dollars per picture.
PHOTOS
Calendar Photo Ideas:
  • You and your fellow calendar developers can take current digital pictures, gather digital pictures and or have fellow students, associates, etc. collect images that will enhance your program.
  • All you need is a digital camera and a computer. • Take your digital pictures or use existing photos from your desktop, Face Book, friends, etc.
  • You will need 300 dpi pictures. A good resolution for printing photos is 300 dpi (dots per inch). Anything below will print pixelated. Most images displayed on a monitor has a resolution of 72 dpi and 96 dpi, which means it may look great on your screen but will not look great when printed.
Create A Theme with Pictures
  • Showcase a picture or collage of photos on the cover of your fundraiser calendar best describing your subject.
  • Put a picture or collage of photos on the top of each month. For example, September would say, “Welcome Back to School” and showcase the football team or theme of your calendar.
  • Students in campus settings.
  • Pictures of peoples’ favorite animals.
  • People in funny situations or wearing funny clothes.
  • Liven up the month with funny sayings to go with the picture.
  • Places or things that relate to your cause or organization.
  • Events or things that are going on in a featured month.
  • Points of interest, such as people, landmarks, etc. from your school, organization, community, sports team, etc.
  • Photos of firefighters or police officers with their shirts off. We did one with firefighters dressed in drag. It was hilarious.
  • Pictures from previous years’ events.
  • School sports programs and other school events, band, cheerleader, DECA, whatever you feel is necessary for students, teachers, parents, your non-profit and the community during the year.

ADVERTISING SALES:

If you choose to sell advertising in your calendar, you can add a nice profit to your bottom line! Advertising can be sold to business’ to cover the cost of the program and make money.

Who Should Sell the Advertising?

The students (teams, clubs, band, cheerleader, DECA, whatever) or members of your non-profit organization are your most powerful selling tool. They are what it is all about and proof that the money from the ad sales is going to a good cause. They can pre-sell the advertising to sponsors thus ensuring an extra profit from the sale of the fundraising calendars.

Don’t Procrastinate

Take time to teach your students or members of your non-profit organization how to sell an ad and make sure they know:

  • What school or non-profit organization they are supporting.
  • What the money will be used for.
  • When calendar distribution begins and ends.
  • Size of ads and what they cost.

SALES TIPS & REVENUE IDEAS
Ad Sales Tips:
  • Know your estimated distribution.
  • Make sure the sponsor sees how they can benefit from the partnership and convince them that by buying advertising space in your program they’re making a smart marketing decision for their company.
  • The key is to show that advertising in your calendar will benefit all parties involved.
  • Great way to advertise their business.
  • Gain additional exposure to a large, lucrative market (parents, students, relatives, friends, colleagues, customers, members, contacts, and supporters of your school or non-profit organization)
  • The business gets relatively inexpensive advertisement space compared to advertising in a newspaper.
  • It can also get some positive publicity by supporting your school or non-profit organization and the community
Advertising Revenue Ideas:
  • You can sell birthday and anniversary dates, personal/parent ads with pictures of students, daily specials from supporting businesses.
  • Ask local businesses for help with funds in return for free product placement within the calendar
  • Sell dates within each month, for example, a local ice cream shop could buy the date that it opens up for the summer season, ensuring customers know when they resume operation.
  • Ads can be sold to sponsor an individual page at different price levels and some pages.
  • Have smaller ads running down one side or on the bottom of the page
  • Sponsoring a single month or several months or all monyhs.
  • Some schools or non-profit organizations sell the date of a persons’ anniversary or birthday for $5 and place a picture of the individual on that date.
  • Advertisers could put coupons and specials on their ads to entice them to buy their products or services.
  • Personal/Parent-Member ads are a great way to gather support and enthusiasm from the community for your calendar or program. Ads of funny, baby and candid pictures of the student or members are purchased by the families and friends to show support, best wishes and poke fun at the student or member and gather enthusiasm for your team, school or organization.
  • Keep a record of past sponsors to contact for next years’ calendar.
  • Nothing will beat taking the time to call on your local business personally. Combine the information from the telephone and direct mail samples for your personal sales calls.

FILE CHECKLIST:

Bleed, Trim, and Safety:

There are three main elements to know when setting up a document with a bleed. They are the bleed line, trim line, and safety line.

Bleed Line: 1/8" (.125)

One important custom printing term to know is a bleed. Bleed refers to an extra 1/8" (.125) of image that extends beyond the trim area of your printing piece. The project is printed on an oversized sheet that is cut down to size with the appearance that the image bleeds off the edge of the paper.

Trim Line:

Trim line indicates where to trim the printed sheet or where the edge of the paper is to ensure that the edges of the printed document are printed correctly. Similar to register or crop marks. The trim line is the final document size.

Safety Line:

The safety line or inner margin is the area in which to keep all important elements (text, logo, and/or content) within to prevent them from trimming off. All important elements should be at least 1/8" (.125) inside the edge of the trim line. The cutting of your printed piece is done in large stacks and may vary from the top and the bottom of the stack.

Framed Border:

All borders need to be 3/16" within the Trim Line as well as 1/8" extending out over the bleed line (Blue Frame).

Fold Line:

Templates also include fold marks that indicate where the fold will be. It is best to line up your panels with the folding marks to ensure the fold being in the correct spot on the panel in final production.

 




Accepted Files: .pdf, .tiff, .jpeg .psd (photoshop), .ai (illustrator), .eps (illustrator or photoshop), .indd (InDesign)

The recommended file is a PDF file but we will accept high resolution (300dpi) .tiff, .jpeg or the original source file from the following programs Photoshop (.psd), Illustrator (.ai or .eps), and InDesign (.indd).

If working in a program not mentioned files must be exported as a PDF.

EXAMPLE: PDF conversion instructions
 

Recommended Image Resolution: 300 dpi

File and/or Image resolution should be set at 300 dpi to ensure that the final document is not pixelated (fuzzy) when printed.

Enlarging an image will lower the resolution while reducing an image will increase the resolution. Enlarging an image in a layout is NOT recommended. Images that are less than 300 dpi could reproduce poorly looking fuzzy or pixelated.

Images from the internet are not recommended, as most images are only 72 dpi.

An unfavorable image cannot be resaved as a different type of file. For example, you cannot place a gif file in Photoshop and resave it as an EPS file. This does not change the compatibility of the file. If you have to use low-resolution images we will print only after you consent to the quality.

 

Required Color Mode: CMYK

CMKY (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black) is a color system called Full Color Printing. Most commercial printers use this process. RBG (red, green, and blue) is the color process that your computer monitor uses to display color. It is important to convert your file to the CMYK color process before printing as it may cause a color shift durning the transition and give you unexpected results. All files submitted that are not CMYK, will be converted over before printing. If your project is color sensitive, it is recommended that you request a hard copy proof to ensure the end result is to your specifications.

EXAMPLE: RBG displays digitally and CMYK for print.
 

Font and Transparency:

We recommend that all transparencies be flattened before file submission. We also ask that you set your fonts to outlines prior to file submission. Not flattening or outlining fonts can cause some items to fall off during file preparation for printing. Any files submitted without these things being done may result in items dropping out from your artwork during the conversion process needed to prepare your artwork for printing.
