I am so pleased with the calendars we sold for our first band fundraiser! I have received nothing but good reviews in regards to the quality and appearance. Your website is very user friendly. I had no problems loading pictures, text, and creating the calendar. Your customer service is top notch. Every time I had even the tiniest question, there was a person there waiting and willing to work with me to find the answers I needed. I look forward to working with your company again next year and hope this is a fundraiser we can do every year. Thank you!!

This is the first time I used Printing Center USA. I had my 2019 Photo Calendar 11x8.5 printed. The quality is excellent, the review time was fast and the production and delivery time was adequate. I will use Printing Center USA for the rest of my 2019 calendars.

I just received my 100 batch of printed 2019 Calendars....they are beautiful. Colors rich and prints bright and clear and brilliant. I have been ordering calendars for the last 4 years and have always been happy with the quality and service. This current run seems to be a bit beyond previous years batches in color intensity. I wasn't sure I would, but I like them very much.

The company I work with has used Printing Center USA for several years now, all with good results. This year I personally used them to print a calendar. Their service was excellent and the final product is well done and exactly as I had hoped. Their website is also very easy to use. I would recommend them.

Great printing prices quality and quick. Last year I had ordered the calendar and was expecting the same quality though and the cover was different and the colors weren't as bright. Before it was printed I asked to have it like last year and wish that would have been the case. Will order again but demand the same quality.

Super easy company to work with! Often times ordering from a school with a purchase order can be difficult or isn't accepted. Printing Center USA instantly helped me get my account set up. From designing my own calendar to pushing the order through, everything was simple and quick! From ordering to delivery it was the fastest I've ever encountered. I am so glad that I have found an easy and reliable company to work with. Our product is AWESOME too!

I am super happy with how my calendar came out! The template I chose was super easy to edit in Illustrator and I was able to customize it exactly how I wanted. I had some trouble uploading since my files were large but they reached out to me to assist and walked me through the process over the phone on how to compress the files without losing any quality and the images I used came out super clear and colorful. They assigned Mary to my order and she was super helpful and on top of communication. My order arrived on time so I didn't have to stress out over my deadline. Will definitely be coming back for future orders! Thanks guys!!

Our calendars were such high quality. Working with Emily and Mary was also so easy. They were fast with their responses and helped us make the calendar even better than we had imagined. We didn't exactly send them the correct size files and they worked hard to make sure they were formatted correctly for us. We immediately sold out of our calendars and got so many compliments! :) I'd highly recommend PrintingCenterUSA.com to anyone looking to make a calendar! You can't beat their prices or customer service.

I am a nature and landscape photographer who sells prints and calendars, and after trying PrintingCenterUSA for calendar production, they are going to be by go to from now on for calendars. The paper and print quality is true to color with excellent resolution. The product is simply great quality, not just great quality for the price. I've sold 120 calendars this year and profits have gone to support the National Park Foundation. Alice

For the past two years my photography company has relied on the professionalism and quality of Printing Center USA for our yearly calendar. They have done a fantastic job, providing easy to use PhotoShop templates and printing exactly what I give them (something I have found doesn't happen often with other printers!) Their staff is very courteous and professional and the experience working with them exquisite! I will definitely keep coming back.

I have used multiple printers over the years to print my yearly photo calendars, but I really wish I had discovered Printingcenterusa earlier. Nobody I've used compares in product value and quality. Service was excellent as well. I will use them exclusively going forward, and I would recommend them to others without hesitation.

Great quality product. Online design and layout was simple and quick, as was the checkout process. Product arrived on time and it perfect condition. Only 1 of the 100 calendars I ordered had a small printing bleed/blemish on the cover. I will be ordering more calendars for sure. I have only had the product two days and I am almost sold out. Thank you for a wonderful product and great service. James Bokovoy Photography

I've ordered 300 calendars the last two years and the quality and service is excellent. I have no complaints. Design templates are very user friendly, colors look great, shipping is good and very fast before December. I also like that the calendars are printed right here in Montana where I live, which is why I registered my photography calendars as a Made in Montana product through the state.

This is our second calendar job with Printingcenterusa. The first was a very custom piece for a non-profit, and it was a five-star job. This one was a little less demanding: a thirteen-month calendar that we do for the family every year. This is the first time that we've had it done other than locally, and the result is spectacular! Looks fabulous, reasonable cost, and it arrived right on time. I think this is the way to go from now on.

Honestly, would give 4.5 stars overall: 5 for the excellent customer service, 3 for the online design system and the templates (I wound up designing my own in InDesign), 4.5 for the printing. There were a few glitches the necessitated reprinting several calendars, but overall was extremely pleased with the quality! Will definitely use again, and have recommended PrintingCenterUSA to other people already.

We needed a bulk order of calendars for our not for profit's fundraiser. Never having done anything like this before, I found Printing Center USA's website creation tool very user friendly. I was able to save my creation and come back to edit, which was the only way I could finish it with my busy schedule. After submission, there was a small change...Printing Center USA promptly called us, told of us the change, and asked for the next steps we'd like to take in processing the order. Over all, we were very happy with the online tools, customer service, price, and product.

I have been creating calendars as gifts for ten years now. I have used many different print shops over the years. I can honestly say that PrintingcenterUSA provides the best quality for the price. This is my second year using them. I spent extra time this year to make sure my color really popped in the photos. I will say some of the color is SLIGHTLY faded. Most people would not notice but I am super picky. I had some difficulty uploading some photos. I had to contact support so they could upload five pictures for me. The Rep was very helpful but I never found out why there was a problem. I assumed it may have related to traffic on their server. They were very prompt in loading the pictures to my account (during regular business hours). The calendars were produced and shipped promptly. I received them sooner than I expected. All in all, the calendars are better than anything out there for the price. They use heavy paper that "feels" nice. I do recommend their product.

This is the third calendar that I have made with you, and while I have very happy overall, I wish there was a way to make the images more true to their original edits. It seems that every image comes out darker than the original files, which makes it difficult for me to "guess" at how light to make the files I use. There are drops in certain colors, such as greens.

Staff was great, very helpful. But the problem is I ordered Glossy pages/photos for the calendar and they are MATTE finish. AND to make it worse they claim they are glossy. Otherwise if you want matte finish photos/pages in your calendar - I would highly recommend Printing Center. FYI for Printing Center: Matte and glossy are two different finishes. Using different chemicals and processes photo paper can have a glossy or a matte finish. Glossy finish looks shiny, reflects light very well and looks vibrant and color rich, while matte photos have a dull or lusterless surface. I gave a copy of the calendar to an artist and she said "it would have been better if the photos were glossy".

As always, a great product! I'm proud to give these calendars as gifts to family and friends--nice paper, great color. Not so happy with UPS this time... They held my package hostage for two days. If I'd known there was delay in delivery I would have driven the five miles from my home to the UPS facility where it was being held. And it wasn't delivered until 8:30 pm--after riding around town all day.

This is a high quality calendar. It's our third, and I'm always amazed at how good they look.

My customer base grows more each year from word of mouth and the proven quality and the affordability for me to make a profit without overcharging my clients, is more valuable than anything.

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.

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.
  • Put reminders in this years’ calendar for people to submit pictures for next years’ calendar contest.

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.
