Corporate calendars would have to be the most common customised corporate gift or promotional item in the world. Many people receive branded calendars for next year as early as the start of the last quarter of the current year. Several companies give away calendars annually so people sometimes get more than one every year. If you are planning on giving away corporate calendars as part of your Christmas give-aways, you should make sure that your design is catchy enough for the recipients to keep your calendar and actually use it.
Different Types of Calendars
There are a host of calendars designs to choose from. Wall calendars are ideal for the general public, your consumers and regular customers. There are desk calendars that are more appropriate for people in the office like your own personnel or you contractors and suppliers. If you would like to stand out among all the other corporate calendars to be handed out by other companies, go for functionality. You can have your personalised calendar on a mouse pad, for instance. You can also pick the perpetual calendar design so that your recipients will not need to dispose of them when the year is up.
Another popular design for custom-branded calendars is the magnetic one that you can stick onto any metal surface. This type of calendar saves space that is why it is a popular option. There are calendars made of plastic blocks that you can assemble and dissemble and can be used perpetually. But most calendar giveaways are made of card board and paper.
Showcasing Your Logo
The great thing about custom-printed calendars is that there is ample space to showcase your logo. You may even include your company’s mission and vision into the calendar with enough space to spare. When ordering your printed calendars from a promo items maker, you have to ensure that you have accurately communicated your requirements to them. Also, make sure that you provide your supplier with the accurate artwork for your logo and the colour guide should you want a coloured design.
Scheduling Your Order
Time is of the essence when you want to use calendars as corporate gifts. Many companies order their calendars as early as June or July and have them ready for sending to recipients by October. Make sure you have enough lead time for placing your order so that you can be sure you have your calendars ready before the New Year begins.
