The Production Process

Proof Production

One virtual proof (a multiple-page PDF including the cover and all calendar months) will be sent by the fifth business day. The initial proof will contain one recipient’s name, your logo, and the images you selected. This proof must be carefully reviewed and approved in its entirety (dates, images, logo, name file, etc.) before the print production of your calendars will begin.

PROOF ALTERATION POLICY: If any changes are necessary, a new PDF proof will be produced and submitted for your approval. A $100 alteration fee will apply per proof. Note: Alteration fee must be paid before any changes will be made.

Once your submitted order is reviewed and payment is received, you will receive an order confirmation. We will not begin production on any calendars until order is confirmed. ABSOLUTELY NO EXCEPTIONS.

Print Production

Each of our calendars is a one-of-a-kind original made specifically for each recipient on your list. Each name is processed and hand checked for accuracy and quality. It is for that reason that you must be aware of our production schedule.

Our print and finishing production time is 10 business days from the day the proof is approved, NOT from the date the order is placed. We do not offer rush orders and cannot guarantee “in-hand dates” provided on your purchase orders.

Be sure to allow enough time in case alterations are needed. For orders over 1,000 pieces, please contact a customer service representative for production times. Average total production time is two to three weeks. During the months of November and December, our production time is increased. Please prepare for this change and plan accordingly.
