Promotional calendars

Posted · Add Comment

It’s that time of the year when you need to start thinking about your promotional calendars.

Although December is still a long way off, experience tells us that the festive season will creep up on us without us really noticing and given that the summer months are generally a little quieter in the print business, now is the ideal time to make a start.

Cipher Graphics specializes in producing printed calendars using your own images rather than using ‘standard’ pictures. Your calendars are therefore unique to you and will be unlike anyone else’s. There is a much greater chance that your calendar will be the one your customer uses (as there is no other like it) so your branding will remain in front of your customer for the entire 12 months of the year.

However do bear in mind that the quality of your images needs to be very high in order to enlarge the pictures to the size required and the format needs to be all the same for each of the 6 or 12 pictures you are using.

Fundraising is another market where promotional calendars are one of the most effective cash generators. We run a website aimed squarely at this market and it has proved to be a huge source of revenue for our customers. If you are involved with any sports team, club or school, you should seriously consider using calendars as a fundraising tool. The junior section of my rugby club raises around £1500 every year through a mixture of sponsorship of the calendars and selling them to the parents. For further information visit

Most of the calendars we produce are created on our customer’s web portal. We design a template enabling you to upload images, download a proof and ultimately order the calendars online. If you have your own designer, you can simply upload a printable pdf to our website and we can download and print. If you would rather give us a brief and have us design a calendar specifically for you, we can accommodate this too.

Whatever calendar you need – A4, A3, desk or wall – we can produce quickly and competitively. To discuss your calendar project further, give us a call on 01782 525502.
