Great quality printing and excellent customer service. I have been using printercenterusa for many years now on my annual calendar project and have been a happy customer. Prices seem to be going up every year is the only thing that makes me look elsewhere.

Step by step they helped and when I had a problem they helped out. The calendar came on time and they were good quality!! We will bring using y’all again and for programs for a spring concert!! Thank you!!! Holly

This is the second time I've ordered custom calendars and am more pleased this year due to the better online calendar maker tool, otherwise, I'm just as happy with the calendars themselves and will be ordering again next year. Thanks for a great product!

Good product, though it was hard to see how final quality of images would come out from PDF proof. A couple were grainy, but still beautiful quality of paper and gloss!

They do a great job on their calendars, and I love that they provide several template options. So smart of them to do that. We've been using for several years now at our non-profit. We only place a 100-150 quantity order, but I feel like our organization is treated just as well as any big customer. I will be quoting them for any other print work we do in 2019. The team at printing USA is very good. Great service and great product at great prices!

Our calendars looked great! They are gifts to our pet sitters and featured some of their pet photos. I am happy and proud to give them as gifts! Service was prompt and they stayed in touch throughout the process. In spite of the high demand this time of year, they produced, mailed and shipped my order in a timely way. Thanks!

I was happy with the quality, but I was disappointed about one thing. Out of 6 years of making calendars, this is the first time the template had a printed section saying open for ads or photos. This causes more work to remove it so that it does not show. It is not necessary to tell me where I can put adds. I don't know if this was a mistake on your part, but I hope you do not continue to put this on the template.

Ive used this printer for a few years and all has been good, but this year the pictures in the calendars turned out dark and colors were dull, nothing like tne original images. I realize these are inexpensive calendars, but this year I wss not impressed and I got them too late to request a reprint, lets hope my customers approve...

I just produced a calendar with original photography, as a benefit for a non-profit. It was my first time doing a project like this and I was thrilled at how easy and straightforward the process was. I was short on time, so I used Printing Center USA's online calendar designer, but will download a template next time for more flexibility and options. To be honest, I am amazed at how good the quality is, both paper and printing, for the low, low cost of production!!! Best of all, my customers are happy.

I would have rated this first try with PrintCenterUSA at least 4 stars but for the photos being darker by about 1/3 of an f-stop compared with my computer-displayed originals. Is there anything I can do in processing or wherever to make sure the print versions looks as good as the originals? I use PS CS5 and LR6 on older Mac's for photo processing.

Nice quality. Quick turn around time and competitive pricing. I was happy with the product. The interface on the website was a bit daunting with so many different choices of lacing and paperweights etc. But I can see the need for it now because of the professional quality. Just made me want to chose an easier option but I came back to your website in the end. I had trouble making the calendar using my Mac. I couldn't drag and drop or resize easily. Very frustrating. Once I changed to my husband's PC everything went very smoothly but you might want to look in to that issue for your Apple only customers. Love my calendars! Thanks

My parent-teacher organization ordered these calendars as a fundraiser. For the cost, we were not expecting such good quality. The images and text are clear and crisp, the paper is a good weight, and it is well put together. The layout tool is exceptionally easy to use, and customer service is thorough and responsive. We will absolutely use this company again!

Response from support to my questions while designing my calendar was quick and to the point. Keeping me aware of the progress of my order while in production and during shipping was timely and accurate. The finished product met all my expectations, and more. A quality product for a very good price. I also appreciated that the company made a donation from my purchase to charity. Thank you. If I somehow manage to sell these calendars, I will be back.

I am a nature and landscape photographer who sells prints regularly. I ordered 75 calendars to sell for fundraising this year because I was very happy with the way my calendars came out last year. However, 36 of the 75 calendars came out with a green sheen in a grid and/or line pattern on the black glossy cover, rendering them 100% unsellable. Apparently there was an issue with the gloss finish during the printing process. I contacted the representative, who was able to reprint the calendars and get them to me within 2 days, but it cut my shipping time for the holidays very short. This is not the first print lab I've had issues with, but still worth the money and the corrected batch was fine. I'd still recommend and use them again, but leave 2 weeks for mistakes to be made and corrected.

A couple of months ago I made my first order from PrintingCenterUSA.com. At that time I was very pleased with the quality, ease of ordering and price and I said so in a 5 star review. I've been ordering calendars to give at Christmas for many years and have tried a number of different print services and I like PrintingCenterUSA best. But now they have exceeded all expectations! I live in Paradise, CA and last month before I had mailed the calendars they went up in smoke along with our house. We decide to try and get the calendars out anyway, so I called PrintingCenterUSA so see if I could reorder. When Lynn from account services heard what happened she arranged to replace my order at no cost. That is just above and beyond! All this and the job they do on our calendars is really great! If possible I would give them 10 stars!

PrintingCenterUSA is a wonderful company to work with. This is the sixth year they've printed the fundraising calendar that my local SPCA produces. The first year I dealt with them, I wouldn't have thought of selling advertising had it not been for some helpful tips that I found on their website.about producing a calendar for a nonprofit That's how I came to realize that producing the calendar doesn't have to cost our shelter a penny; the advertising we're able to sell more than pays for the production costs. And the quality of the product that PCUSA produces is a wonderful sales tool when I approach companies asking them to sponsor an ad. I show them the previous year's calendar and I can see them thinking, "Okay, this is not only a cause that I don't mind supporting, but the product they produce is impressive and something that I can feel good about my business being associated with." When I originally found PCUSA, I was looking for the best price I could find for producing our calendar. I chose to use them because that was where I found it. I've come back to them five more times because I've learned that they do quality work at those good prices. And added to that, they're easy to work with; customer service is responsive, knowledgeable, and helpful. That's a winning combination.

The calendars came out much better then I would have ever imagined. The pictures were so sharp and the final product was excellent. I was proud to ship them out to our supporters, we have a non-profit. The staff was great and really helped me thru the process as this was my first year. I could actually talk to someone and I wasn't on hold very long. I used their tool to create the calendar, it had some nice features but it's surely needs some enhancements. I was told it was the first year of the application, hope to see improvement next year. We love the calendar, Thanks!

Printing Center USA does a fantastic job with calendar printing. Customer support is very good - questions are always answered to satisfaction. Timing and delivery have never been a problem in the three years we have been ordering. Cost are compatible. The only issue I had this year is with the new software for calendar design. Our group adds photos and captions to the individual dates on the calendar. This year the software revision did not let us change the caption color in the dates, and the opacity of the caption section was not able to be changed. Thus, I was not able to give an overall rating of 5 stars. But great job, Printing Center.

My husband is a serious wildlife and landscape photographer. We have used Printing Center USA for our annual photography calendar for the last 6 years and are always totally satisfied with the product. Production time is excellent - almost always early - and the staff are very pleasant to deal with. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the new on-line design tool. I totally loved the last one - this one not so much. Sadly, because of the newness of the program, the staff was not able to help me much with my issues. I was having color shift when the photos uploaded (something I figured how to work around). The images also flattened and lost some sharpness. We went so far as to shop other sites, but decided to do the best we could with PC. I converted all the images to CMYK and re-edited them before uploading again. When Mary sent our proof just a couple of hours later I was happily surprised to see that all of my sharpness was back. We received the finished calendars 10 days later and they are fabulous as usual. It just wasn't as easy as it used to be - turned out to be a lot more time-consuming. What used to take me one day, took a week - mostly spent trying to figure out a solution.

This was my first time ordering from PrintingCenterUSA.The ordering process was user friendly. There were timely updates throughout. Their pricing is competitive. And, most important, I was blown away by the quality of my calendar and printing - the colors are vibrant and jump off the page on the gloss paper and the paper is thick enough that the corners won't fold in hanging on the wall. My small business can confidently hand these out to our customers and employees. My expectations were exceeded! Great job!

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.
  • Where the ad will be placed. And above all spread the enthusiasm to your sponsors, students, parents, families, friends, relatives, colleges, customers, members, contacts and supporters of your school or non-profit organization.

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.
