Calendar Printing Process – Offset PrintingOffset printing is a commonly used printing technique in which the inked image is transferred from a plate to a rubber blanket, then to the printing surface. When used in combination with the repulsion of oil and water, the image to be printed obtains ink from ink rollers, while the non-printing area attracts a water-based film that keeps the non-printing areas ink-free.
Advantages of offset printing compared to other printing methods include:
- consistent high image quality of sharp and clear images
- quick and easy production process
- cheapest method for commercial printing in large quantities
Calendar Binding – Wire O Binding
Wire-O-Binding (Also known as twin loop wire, wire-o, double loop wire, double-o, ring wire and wirebind) allows calendars to be placed open flat easily on each and every page. These loops are inserted through holes that have been punched through the calendar’s cover and pages. The loops are then compressed closer together until they form a circle, thus holding the cover and pages together, while allowing them to open freely.
Calendar Designing Tips
Before designing your calendar, here are some important tips that you should take note of:
1. Select a Theme
You should select a main theme that is directly related to your company, using graphics and colours which represents your brand such as shots of your factories, equipment, or offices.. However, do ensure that they look attractive enough for your audience to use daily and that the entire calendar has a consistent look and feel throughout all the months.
2. Limit Number of Images
When it comes to calendar imagery, less is more. Avoid overcrowding your calendar with too many images as it can end up being very distracting and messy looking. Always use high resolution images which can be found on various free stock image sites online.
3. Use Calendar as a Portfolio
Does your company have a range of products, designs or services? If so, you could even utilise your printed calendar to showcase the various elements of your business on each page which will definitely act as an excellent marketing opportunity for your company!
4. Keep it Functional
If you intend on choosing a more unusual and unique calendar format, ensure that it is still functional as ultimately, a calendar’s main purpose is to be usable with a clear and easy to view date system. You can even make use of this opportunity to highlight key event dates for your own company, just make sure that they stand out from other dates.
5. Opt for Double-Sided Print
By having your calendar printed in the double-sided format, it will half the number of pages which will help you to greatly save on costs and ensure that it is more environmentally sustainable, which further helps to improve your company’s brand image.
