Start 2013 with a bang: print calendars and diaries in Hyde Park

January 11, 2013 · Print This Article

2013 is quickly approaching – make sure you have a great Christmas or New Year’s gift for your clients by printing calendars and diaries in Hyde Park. Here’s a 101 guide for getting calendars and diaries printed.

  1. Find a reputable printer. Spend some time finding a printer that comes recommended and will not let you down. If they’re going to be printing time-sensitive things like calendars, it pays to find a printer that won’t be unreliable. Getting your diary three months into the year is hardly helpful!
  2. Double check all dates. When printing diaries and calendars, it’s important that your dates are one hundred per cent accurate. Perhaps get a professional to do this for you.
  3. Get all sub-editing and proofreading done. The last thing you want to do is send off a hundred calendars to print with a spelling error in every one of them. Pay attention to these details and only sign off once you are sure.
  4. If it’s for a company, make sure all the relevant people have signed off the artwork and format.  Some companies like to have corporate diaries printed for all their staff. If this is the case and you are put in charge of getting these printed, get all seniors, managers and directors to sign off on what is going to print.
  5. Once the design is signed off, you are ready to place the order with your printers. Get a sample of the calendar or diary printed first so you know how the end product will look. The printers should then quote you on your order according to your artwork and quantity.
  6. Order your printing in due time. The third quarter of the year before the one used on the calendar or diary is the time to start the process. Make sure you understand how much time is needed for design work, sign-off and printing, and take this into account.

So there you have it: the 101 guide to getting diaries and calendars printed. Give your nearest Minuteman Press Hyde Park a call for all your calendar and diary printing needs.
