It's the time of year when I begin receiving multiple requests for promotional desk calendars. Why is this? Companies are starting early to order their calendars for the new year, and they know that custom calendars have a huge potential for brand exposure. Personalized calendars aren't confined to your office; they are great giveaways for trade shows, conventions, and seminars.
It's important to get a head start on the ordering process because of all the logistics that go into choosing and designing the ideal desk calendar for your company. This blog will help you get on your way to making these essential decisions.
Let's get started with some of the basics.
As you can see, there isn't just one kind of promotional desk calendar. Let's go over the different styles.
Table Tent Calendars
The custom table tent calendar is our most popular style of promotional desk calendars. Customers like this style because of its small, compact size and design that doesn't take up too much desk space. Easily place these calendars on the front desk, in individual employee offices, and conference rooms. These promotional products are clear to read and easy to use. Some models require a simple set up upon receipt.
We're not done with table tent calendars yet! Even within this style, there are options. The "Elite Travel" calendar above is called the Custom 12-Month Desk Tent Calendar. A special feature of this model is that you can include a full color picture on each page! Basically, each month has its own picture. GET IT HERE.
Some tent calendars only have a full color picture on the cover page, like the promotional Econo Desk Calendar to the right. The other pages simply show the months and dates. Some companies prefer this simple look. With nearly every desk tent calendar, there is space to put your logo and contact information on the bottom below the calendar space. GET IT HERE.
One of our highest selling promotional desk calendars is the Custom Table Tent Calendar show on the left. It is yet another different design of the tent style. This calendar has no pages; it displays 6 months on each side. I like this design because it is simple and sleek. Every employee in our office has one on their desk to help pin down deadlines and schedule conferences. GET IT HERE.
Desk Pad Calendars
Another option for desk calendars is the desk pad design. These calendars are perfect for people who like to jot down notes on important dates because of their ample writing room.
I've seen people keep desk pads directly in front of their computer's keyboard for easy access and use. This means that your logo and contact information can be present in the user's mind throughout their workday. The customized Deluxe Daily Planner allows for imprinting from a wide choice of colors on the headboard. GET IT HERE.
Pop Up Calendars
The last, and, perhaps, most unique, kind of desk calendars are the pop up style. These calenders sit on your desk but are slightly elevated towards the top. Take a look at the calendar to the left, the branded V-Natural (TM) 3-Month Jumbo Pop Up Calendar. It shows three complete months on one page. This style of calendar is ideal for people who like writing on calendars at an elevated angle. GET IT HERE.
