Counting the Days

There are seven Mondays left in 2011. We know this because we checked the calendar. That’s the beauty of those timely markers. Every day, week and month can be seen and measured, organized and counted. Even as we are left wondering where this year went we can also look ahead to the next.

Perhaps it is because of our love for paper and the printed page, but there is something very reassuring about an actual calendar that can be touched. With them our days are presented in an instantly recognizable measurement with pages to turn as appointments are noted and days marked off.

It should come as no surprise that at Flexpress we print many kinds of calendars. The shapes, sizes and formats are as varied as the uses for them. We have templates for most and can help with the design and production of others as needed. Among the more popular:

Wall calendars – both saddle-stitched and spiral bound
Posters – either a single year at a glance or individual tear-off months available in large format sizes
Table tents – ideal for monthly events and special promotions
Business card – terrific for appointment reminders
Magnetic – can be square cut or custom die cut shapes
Notepads – really handy when the calendar is printed quarterly along the margin
Bookmarks – these are great reminders of holidays, sporting events and special test dates for students
Rolodex® cards – a surprisingly effective and desired format even in these days of electronic contact lists
Window clings – perfect for posting seasonal hours and days
Weekly and monthly planners – top organizational tools for both business and educational use

Of all the calendars, though, we think those that are personalized are the best. Whether they are designed with photos, logos, or messages these are the ones that give us daily reminders of our connections to others: businesses, schools, sports teams, and personal organizations. These relationships are what fill our days with purpose and anticipation and give us a reason to look forward to the next day. As these calendars work their way through our printing and bindery departments we can’t help but imagine what the upcoming year holds for us all.

Good news! It’s not too late to put your mark on 2012 with a customized calendar. Contact us at and let’s discuss making your presence known year-round. It would make our day.
