How to Prepare & Submit Artwork

Following are specifications and tips on preparing & submitting custom artwork for inclusion on your volume order. Artwork preparation templates are available upon request for most items; contact Customer Service to have template for your item emailed to you. Make sure that you are ordering at least the minimum quantity required for ad copy per item. If you cannot prepare the art file(s) for your order, we can provide graphic prep service at $75.00/hr (1 hr minimum).

Submitting the Artwork

  • A. E-mail to [email protected] As a general rule, file size must be no larger than 10 MB when sending any one e-mail to this address. If you have multiple files to send, you can group them together in different e-mails that total 10 MB or less per e-mail.
  • B. If your file size is too large, please email [email protected] for further instructions.
  • If e-mailing files, include your order number in the subject field and your contact information somewhere in the body.
  • When dealing with multiple files, it is best to compress them all into one file via WinZip or StuffIt.
  • When submitting files/photos that are to appear on different month pages, be sure to include the month abbreviation (such as jan, feb, mar) in the file name so we know where to put each file/photo.
  • Be sure to send files in high resolution (see 'Set up job as follows' below). If you do not have high resolution artwork or the capability to create such, we can assist in this area. Please contact us for quoting your ad copy prep & composition.
  • Include a hard copy of the files showing area to print. Define area to print showing cropping and bleed.
  • Full Bleed: Check with Customer Service to see if this option is available on your item; some items offer it at no additional charge, others have a charge for full bleed. If so, and you want it on your order, any custom imprint intended to extend to a cut edge of sheet must include 1/8" of non-critical extra image to allow for trimming. For these 'full bleed' jobs, any critical body copy or imprint should be no closer than 1/8" to the finished/cut edge to allow for cut/trim tolerance. Please keep in mind other factors such as binding punch holes, tinning wrap and drill holes when setting up your artwork to avoid interference with your critical data. Please contact customer service for additional item specifications and to have artwork template for your item sent to you.

Please Supply:

  • Phone Number
  • Company Name
  • Order Number
  • List of the applications the files were created in
  • Specify whether created on PC or Mac
  • Specify how you saved the job (eps, tif, jpeg, etc.)
  • A color hard copy must be supplied if color accuracy is required.

'In the Image' name list files:

  • If you are submitting more than ten names for one of our name 'In the Image' calendars, the required format is as follows:
  • Excel spreadsheet file type required.
  • In columnar format, simply list the first or first&last names that are to appear in each calendar. (First recipient name in cell A1, second recipient name in cell A2, etc.)
  • Combined names (such as 'Sarah & Tom') are admissable; whatever you type in each cell is exactly what will be merged into each calendar page.
  • E-mail file along with our system order number to [email protected]

'Family Birthday' calendar (item #Family) or other calendars with 'custom dateblocking':

  • For orders that allow for our imprinting your custom information within different dateblocks, submit the custom information as follows:
  • Excel spreadsheet file type required.
  • In columnar format, simply list the date we are to customize in column A and then the data we are to print in adjacent column B cell. (First custom dateblock date in cell A1 - such as 'January 9'; first birthdate/anniversary/event in adjacent cell B1, etc.)
  • Make sure to proofread the data as we will print verbatim per your spreadsheet content.
  • E-mail file along with our system order number to [email protected]


  • All placed artwork and fonts must be included to assure proper processing of your files.
  • Art must be at 100% of final output size or contain cropping instructions.

(Defuniak Springs , Florida) | January 6th, 2018
This calendar is like my bird in the hand , I usually get one from somewhere for Christmas , but this year I didn't and I am completely lost without it . I use it for planning my garden progress , the weather , cutting hair , starting new projects , and I get a lot of great knowledge from the tips it contains . I basically live by it . I say that because I have got to know what that calendar says so I can make some progress . If you use it right you get back the best results .
