Personalized Calendars

After finishing up the last of about 75 personalized calendars for customers, I got to wondering if anyone else has tapped into this cash flow generator. We scan and position a photo of the customers choice on the top half of a sheet of Heavyweight Matte paper, drop a 1 year calendar on the bottom and print. $3.00 for about 10 minutes work. $12.50 for a 12x18 size. About half were of the larger size. We dont include any restoration...just a quick tone/color adjustment. Might be worth trying this on some of your customers..these make good gifts and while they probably wont raise your income into a higher tax bracket, the advertising value is very real. Just a thought...Tom

Good idea Tom. Do you put your name anywhere on the calendar? If people have your name in front of them all year long, that isn't bad advertising.

The business name goes in small print on the left side just under the photo. Tom

Sure thing, Jill. Attached is a generic example. It doesnot show the outline of the paper very well, but the size is standard 8.5x11. Tom

It really turned out great Tom. I thought you meant the type calandar where you tear off all the pages of the month and the top was a picture of a family member. That's even better. Love the whole idea. I have come to realize that Christmas is a busy time in this business and that would be a perfect gift idea. Love this site for ideas and info.
