It’s October now. Only 2 months are left of 2017. Considering the time for file preparation, production and shipping, it’s definitely time for you to get started with 2018 calendars! There are 3 types of most common calendars, namely saddle-stitched wall calendars, tent-styled desk calendars and3-month wall calendars.
Type 1: Saddle-Stitched Wall Calendars
Feature: popular; suitable for individuals and companies
Regular sizes: 11*8.5″ and 12*12″
Normally there are 14 sheets (28 pages), one for the front cover, one for the back cover and twelve for date sheets. For the date sheets, on the one side is dates of a month and on the other a picture. Since the calendar is to be hung on the wall, the paper cannot be too thick. 128gsm is enough.
Type 2: Tent-Styled Desk Calendars
Feature: luxurious; more suitable for companies
Regular size: 245*170mm (date sheets), 245*190mm (calendar frame)
Normally there are 7 sheets (14 pages) or 14 sheets (28 pages). For 7 sheets, on both sides of the 6 sheets are dates of months. For the 14 sheets, the situation is similar to saddle-stitched wall calendars. For the frame, we use 157gsm coated paper, 2.5mm-thick greyboard and 100gsm offset paper. The calendar is wire-o bound at the top and stands like a tent.
Type 3: 3-Month Wall Calendars
Feature: purposeful; more suitable for companies, especially those engaged in logistics
Regular size: 320*168mm (date sheets and header board), 320*176mm (3 supporting panels)
Normally there are 3 sets of dates sheets, 12 sheets for each set. The first set starts from December of the previous year and ends in November of The Year, the second starts from January of The Year and ends in December of The Year, and the third starts from February of The Year and ends at January of the following year. For the header board and supporting panels, we use 300gsm C1S paper and for the date sheets, we use 80gsm offset paper.
