Submission specifications
For preparing your file we recommend to use our template.
For preparing your file we recommend to use our template. This is the best way to deliver your file perfectly.
Add 3 mm bleed.
To allow leeway for cutting differences in production, always add a bleed of 3 mm around all edges of your design. Make sure colours, background pictures and layouts extend into the bleed area so as to avoid leaving white lines as a result of cutting tolerances.
Keep 4 mm safety margin and 11 mm for the wire side
For this product we need all important text and images to be at least 11 mm away from the wire. That means you should deliver your artwork with 11 mm margin on the left for odd pages, and 11 mm margin on the right for even pages. For top, bottom and opposite side of the wire keep all important text and images at least 4 mm away from the edge of the finished size.
Use CMYK as the colour mode.
Prepare your files using CMYK as the colour mode, not RGB. Use colourmode FOGRA39 (ISO Coated v2) for coated papertypes and colourmode FOGRA47 (PSO Uncoated ISO12647) for uncoated papertypes. If you are unsure of the colour mode of your file, don't worry we can always convert this for you. Keep in mind this can cause the colours to differ from the original file.
Resolution of at least 300 dpi.
Make sure the resolution of the images and graphics in your artwork are at least 300 dpi.
Convert fonts to outlines or embed all the fonts.
Make sure you convert fonts to outlines or embed all the fonts when saving it to PDF.
Make sure the ink coverage isn't higher than 300%.
Force Color Images to CMYK with a 260% ink limit (in Photoshop > Convert Color Profile > Photoshop 5 Default CMYK). Make sure the ink coverage isn't higher than 300%.
Save your files in uneditable, print-ready file formats.
Save your files in uneditable, print-ready file formats (PDF (1.4 or higher), TIFF, EPS, JPG). Deliver your files in one layer: the background layer.
Use the right values for full colour black.
Use Rich Black (C:63% M:52% Y:51% K:100%) for larger areas and text to get a deep black colour. Do not use this value for text smaller than 15 pt or plain text. This can only be used in full colour printing. For designing black smaller texts use 100% black.
Check line thickness.
Lines should be at least 0.25 pt. Negative lines should be at least 0.5 pt.
Check your artwork for overprint.
Make sure no elements in your artwork are set on overprint unless you want this effect in your design. You can read more about overprint in our Help Center.
Frequently asked questions
What is this product exactly? And what can I use it for?
  • A desk calendar is made out of cardboard and paper. The cardboard is cut into a specific form which makes it very easy to fold into the calendar-frame. This makes this calendar perfect for your office or desk. The paper is used to show the actual calendar. On top there is a Wire-o binding which binds the pages.

  • This product is used:

    • Introduce people to your business
    • Use as a gift to friends or family
    • Filling up goodiebags
How do I supply my design file for Calendars Desk?
  • Please supply all pages seperately, but in 1 PDF-file. If you sequence the pages in the way you want them, nothing can go wrong. We can not proceed with spreads (pages next to eachother) or multiple PDFs.

Which materials can I choose from?
  • 250gr gloss MC: this paper is mainly used in the hospitality and retail. They are 3 times as thick as printing paper and thereby they feel pretty solid. Thickness: 0,22mm

Which production techniques do you use?
  • For the production of your Calendars Desk we use the following production technique(s):

  • Digital printing uses four colours (CMYK) with toners and inks to print digital files. This option is comparable to large home printer, and is cheaper than ‘litho’ printing for smaller quantities. This is because there are less starting costs, less components involved, and no ink drying time necessary.

Are the months being printed on the calendars automatically?
  • No, the months are not printed on the calendars automatically. You have to put them on the design-file yourself.

How many pages does a desk calendar have?
  • The desk calendars consist of 13 pages: a front page and 12 pages: one for each month.

What is the colour of the wire-o?
  • The colour of the wire-o is silver/metal.

I can't find the product I'm looking for. Can I request a quotation?
  • The Calendars Desk that is chosen in most cases can be selected via our website.
