Ordering Tips

Our uploader requires photos at least 612×612 pixels in jpeg format.

Save as you go! We recommend ordering your Daily Calendar through the Print Studio iOS app. As of January 2020, our app features a Save Project button, allowing you to save your projects as you go. That’s solid peace of mind when you’re uploading a year’s worth of photos. To save in progress calendar orders on our Print Studio App, select Save Project on the bottom of the maker page. You can rest easy knowing it’ll be there when you go back to finish your project!

If you’re ordering a Daily Calendar from our website, note that you will not be able to save orders in progress at this time. We recommend beginning the Daily Calendar ordering process by creating a folder on your desktop with all the photos you’d like to use. Once you’ve collected a year’s worth of photos in your folder, you can begin uploading. 

Don’t sweat it if you do not have a year’s worth of photos! You can repeat photos by upping their quantity on the upload page. Clicking “autofill” will duplicate your photos to fill the remainder of the year.

We recommend placing your Daily Calendar order all in one go if you’re ordering on the web, from upload to checkout. If you leave your project sitting in your cart for long periods of time, you risk a browser refresh that could result in losing your work.

Our uploader only allows photos to be uploaded 50 at a time to avoid hiccups in your connection.

If you want the option to save as you go, make your Daily Calendar through the Print Studio iOS app. Like we detailed above, Daily Calendar orders can be saved in-progress on our app but can’t be saved-in-progress on our website. In the app, select Save Project on the bottom of the maker page to save your work as you go.

We have more tips for ordering the Daily Calendars from our website here.

Can I choose which photo is printed on the cover?

Choose your first photo with care because we print a peekaboo of the first photo in your calendar within a heart template on the cover, along with the year. 

Does the Daily Calendar come with a stand?

It doesn’t but it stands up on its own. Shop photo display items here. 

What will the start date be for my Daily Calendar?

As of January 1, 2020, all calendars will have a start date of the first day of the following month that the calendar is ordered in. For example, an order placed in July will begin August 1st and end on the following July 31st. We will begin printing calendars with January 1, 2021 start dates on October 1, 2020.

What are the exact template sizes for each of your designs?

The printing template sizes for the various designs can be found below. Some templates may be larger than the page itself; this is due to factored-in bleed space. 

  • Small Date: 2.813×2.813″
  • Split Date: 2.813×2.813″
  • Block Date: 2.688×3.219″
  • Bordered: 2.294×2.828″ (The border on the Bordered Daily Calendar is 0.39″ (0.99 cm) thick.)
  • Full bleed: 2.688×3.219″

No Can Do

We do not offer custom start dates. Sorry for the inconvenience!

The Daily Calendar must include a full year’s worth of photos. We are unable to create calendars with shorter or longer periods of time, or any type of countdown calendar.

Our Daily Calendars are popular gift items for corporations, small businesses, start-ups, and freelancers. They make great holiday gifts, client thank yous, and corporate swag. We offer bulk pricing for large orders. Email us at [email protected] for a quote.

Favorite Places DIY Photo Calendar & Snapfish Giveaway

This post was created in partnership with #Snapfish. All opinions are my own. #SnapfishBloggers

All month long I’m sharing ideas for simple Holiday gifts for family and friends. I’ll be posting ideas for gifts that you can sew, bake, make or buy.  Some will be quick, and others will be well worth the extra time involved. Today I’m sharing with you an idea that would be perfect for far away family and friends or members of your immediate family… a DIY Favorite Places Photo Calendar.



Let me tell you something. We take a LOT of pictures. Actually we took a lot of pictures before we had cameras on our phones, and now that we have that the photos have multiplied ten fold.  Does anyone remember using film ??  You’d shoot away on your camera and just HOPE that your photos would be beautiful…Then you’d send off your film to be developed and wait. I still remember the thrill of opening that envelope and getting the first glimpse of my finished photos.   Even though I now shoot 100% digital photos I still LOVE that thrill that comes from opening freshly printed photographs.

I’ve said it before and I’ll mention it again… get your photos OFF your phones and computers and onto tangible items. Things like printed photos, mugs, photo books and calendars.  We don’t know where technology will be in 10 or 15 years, what if you can’t get to your pictures?

With all of the photos our family takes, I get stuck sometimes knowing what to do with all of them. I’m an avid scrapbooker but admit to not being “caught up” (or even caring if I ever am)…. I’ve discovered over the years that it’s fun to find other ways to capture our families memories besides just chronological photo albums or scrapbooks.

This year I decided to make a calendar of all of our “favorite places”. When I first had the notion of making a photo calendar I thought about the process to literally… I thought that I need to find photos we took in January for the January page, February for February etc…. Narrowing down the photos was getting overwhelming.

After realizing that my first plan needed to be simpler, I thought I’d try something different.  I listed on a piece of paper 12 of our favorite places to go then found a few of my favorite shots of each place.

I then uploaded them to Snapfish and was able to quickly create a calendar. I spent a few minutes “poking around” and realized there were loads of ways to customize the calendar just for our family…. . A few of the things I found.

  • Uploading the photos was crazy easy (you can even upload directly from IG and Facebook)
  • You can pick a layout that you love. I used a simple layout but there are several really beautifully designed ones in the program to pick from. They are in template form so you just drag and drop your photos.
  • If you don’t want to only use photos there are stickers and embellishments in several different themes to pick from.
  • You don’t have to start on January 1st, you can begin the calendar any time during the year! Which makes it a great birthday gift.
  • I love that I was also able to include photos on the days in the calendar too, I added a photo of each family member to their birthday. You can also add text to commemorate special days.



I ended up printing 3 calendars… one for my husband to take to work, one for our home, and one for our daughter who is away at college.

The calendars arrived a few weeks ago and my kids have loved looking through them and picking out their favorite month…

25 Best Toy Advent Calendars for Kids

When you’re a kid, the month leading up to Christmas feels like it’s the longest. You sing every Christmas song imaginable. You watch every Christmas movie and special that network television will put in front of you. You do a ton of Christmas crafts. And yet, nothing seems to make the days go faster.

If your kids just can’t wait, indulge them with a Christmas advent calendar, which sates their appetites for toys and surprises until Santa makes his big trip around the globe. If you want your child to have the fun of opening up a just-a-little-something each day, these toy advent calendars for kids are just what Santa’s elves ordered. But which ones to choose? Disney advent calendars always sell out quickly, so snap them up the minute they become available. LEGO, as always, has a few that are sure to please fans of Star Wars, Marvel or Harry Potter. There are some that encourage kids to take on creative projects each day, and others that you can re-use year after year.

These are our favorite toy advent calendars for kids in 2021. As for what to put under the tree on the 25th day? Or list of the best gifts for kids can help you sort that out.

Gift Guide: 28 Best Holiday Advent Calendars For Every Personality

Tis the season to be merry, but with the pandemic surging and new restrictions going into effect seemingly daily, it’s more likely we’re all in for another month of monotony. Unfortunately, those boring silent nights don’t bring joy to the world and might be actively making us more depressed.

Research published in the journal Nature Neuroscience in May linked enhanced happiness and other positive emotions with new, diverse experiences, and found that this connection is related to a greater correlation of brain activity in the hippocampus and the striatum (a.k.a. the brain zones associated with the processing of novelty and reward).

“Our results suggest that people feel happier when they have more variety in their daily routines, go to novel places, and have a wider array of experiences,” explains New York University assistant psychology professor Catherine Hartley, who coauthored the paper. “These results suggest a reciprocal link between novel and diverse experiences and our subjective sense of well-being.”

But how to go from bah humbug to fab la la la with most normal strategies for shaking up routines like traveling, gathering with friends and family, dating, and even dining in new restaurants either unavailable or unsafe logistical nightmares in 2020? Two words: Advent calendars.

No, our brains haven’t turned to figgy pudding. Hear us out. Although the research was conducted pre-corona, the authors have noted, “Even small changes that introduce greater variability into the physical or mental routine may yield similar beneficial effects.”

Small changes could include a daily surprise. Having a door to open every day before Christmas or Hanukkah gives you something to look forward to after a long winter’s nap, and not knowing what’s behind them certainly qualifies as introducing greater variability. Sometimes, as is the case with LEGO’s offerings, Lovehoney’s lingerie loot, or the holiday baking countdown from Uncommon Goods, the present opening is just the beginning of what festivities your night now has in store.

And we’re not talking about those flimsy cardboard numbers filled with cheap chocolate. These days, there’s an advent calendar for every personality, hobby, interest, budget, and relationship type from musical playlists and luxury fragrance collections to crates full of cocktails and collectible toys. And if anyone gives you grief for splurging on any of the following best advent calendars we’ve assembled, tell ‘em you’re simply following the science to a wonderful life.

For Aspiring DJs

Get the holiday party started with this advent-style playlist of 25 Tannenbaum tunes from Sound Sentiments. Each day reveals a QR code for one festive classic that can be played on any device including “Silent Night,” “Jingle Bells,” and “Feliz Navidad,” José Feliciano’s bilingual banger which celebrates its 50th birthday in 2020. Shaped like a vinyl record, it’ll also be music to eco-friendly and pro-economy ears to find out that it’s made in the USA of 50 percent recycled materials.

25 Days Advent Calendar Playlist

For Sufferers of Over-Sanitized Skin

Pandemic safety protocols, while absolutely necessary, are taking their toll on everybody (emphasis on body!) Wage war on dry skin, cracked lips, tired eyes, and maskne caused by constant hand washing, sanitizer usage, anxiety-riddled nights, and sweating in PPE, with an elegant advent calendar from Molton Brown. Designed to evoke a shimmering 1920s chandelier, it contains 24 unisex goodies—think hand creams, body oils, bath salts, Vitamin Lipsaver, anti-fatigue eye gel, and perfume—to indulge all your nooks and crannies in nine scents, including Coastal Cypress & Sea Fennel, Muddled Plum, and Orange & Bergamot.

Molton Brown Advent Calendar

Beekman 1802’s awesome advent offering sold out before Thanksgiving, but the adorable urbanites-turned-goat farmers/Sharon Springs shopkeepers won’t leave customers high and dry-skinned.

Beekman 1802 Skincare Stars 7 Day Gift…

For Meat Lovers

This protein-packed exclusive from Man Crates will help any carnivore power through the holiday home stretch. Be warned: this isn’t your grandpa’s boring beef jerky either. Sure, there are basics like teriyaki, black pepper, and garlic among the 25 packs of jerky bits. But there are also root beer habanero, General Tso, sesame ginger, Thai satay, birch beer, and whiskey maple flavors in the mix.

For Anyone Who Needs a Stiff Drink

The Office 12 Days of Socks

For Brick Masters

If you build it, Christmas will come. Of LEGO’s four toy-a-day offerings this year, two draw from the pop culture pantheon and are sure to entertain brick players of all ages. The 10th iteration of the future collector’s item, the 311-piece LEGO Star Wars advent calendar, has six mini figures, including Darth Vader in an ugly Christmas sweater, six figures including a Tauntaun doing a Rudolph impression, and 12 mini-build ships and locations including a droid control ship and Anakin’s Podracer.

Prefer the wizarding world to a galaxy far, far away? The Harry Potter Advent Calendar will cast a spell on Potterheads as every day brings them farther into the realm of the boy who lived and his magical friends. Besides six mini figures, the set also includes models of enchanted objects and places including items from the Yule Ball to put together.

For Anglophiles

Jolly Old St. Nick meets Jolly old England when you combine the following pair of advent calendars to stage mini high tea daily. First, you need something to drink, which can be found in a collaboration between The Republic Of Tea and The Hallmark Channel, home to the holiday hits about blind bakery owners finding love during snowstorms with single Santas after reading long-buried love notes written by someone who turns out to be a long-lost relative. Each of the 12 slots contains two black or green tea bags to promote shared sipping.

And because no tea time is complete without pastries and no English muffins, scones, or crumpets are complete without fruity spreads, also invest in Bonne Maman’s advent house. Behind each door lies a mini jar of yummy French-made preserves, jellies, and honey. (Extra gift for your digestive tract? All are free of artificial colors, preservatives, and high-fructose corn syrup. )

Hallmark Channel Republic Of Tea…


For Pandemic Bakers

Tired of sourdough starter maintenance, banana bread, or Dalgona coffee whipping? Welcome cookie season with the help of this interactive advent calendar, which, like Joe Biden, was made in Pennsylvania. Each day’s compartment holds a specialty ingredient like crushed peppermint, candied orange peel, and holiday nonpareils, a kitchen tool, or a recipe card. By Christmas, you’ll have six kinds of swappable cookies in your repertoire. (Warning: it doesn’t include standard baking necessities like all-purpose flour or eggs. But you probably already stocked up in preparation for the president elect’s “dark winter” anyway.)

Holiday Cookie Advent Calendar

For Foodies

If eating is your reason for the season, there are calendars to satisfy just about every craving. BYOBHotSauce’s 25 Sauces of Christmas Countdown will spice up any pepper popper’s palette. Each chamber contains a two-ounce bottle of slow-simmered Louisiana-style condiments created using a hit list of hotties like Carolina Reapers, Trinidad Scorpions, Scotch Bonnets, and Habaneros. Christmas day is capped off with a bigger bottle of the Clausse Family’s super-duper secret sauce.

The 25 Sauces of Christmas Advent…

Everyone’s been doing their fair share of binging lately and with lockdowns making a comeback in many cities and The Mandalorian season two in full swing on Disney+, that isn’t likely to change. Level up screen-time snacks with a daily dose of Joe & Seph’s gourmet popcorn in fun flavors like salted caramel, banoffee pie, strawberries and cream, and Speculoos.

Joe & Seph’s Popcorn Advent Calendar

Speaking of Mando, this So Wrong It’s Nom cheese calendar is the whey. Twenty-four discs of Ilchester dairy goodness have journeyed from across the pond including Wensleydale with cranberries, cheddar, Jarlsberg, Applewood, and Red Leicester to start a party in your mouth.

So Wrong It’s Nom Cheese Advent Calendar

But the cream of the crop in culinary calendars comes fresh from the fields, beehives, orchards, and goat pastures of Alabama’s Stone Hollow Farmstead and Food52. Every nook of the wooden crate—sturdy and pretty enough to be refilled and reused—holds an edible delight in awesome flavors like drunken pear, tomatillo, ramp, and turmeric.

By Christmas Eve, gourmands will be lousy with artisanal jams, syrups, dulce de leche, relishes, pickles, spices, pates, oils, and vinegar. (Who even knew nasturtium vinegar was a thing?)

Stone Hollow Farmstead x Food52 Advent…

For The Sweet Tooth

A worthy last indulgence before you make a New Year’s resolution to lose the Quarantine 19 you’ve packed on over the last eight months, Sugarfina’s candy-filled calendar tempts with 24 different types of treats (96 pieces in total) including limited-run seasonal faves like Candy Cane Caramels, Snowman Gummies, and Merry Berries as well as brand cornerstones like Parisian Pineapples, Ice Cream Cones, Apple Frogs, and Sparkle Pops. Sadly, this mouthwatering menagerie is family-friendly so it doesn’t include any of the spiked snacks like Champagne Bears or the Aviation American Gin Gimlet Gummies the high-end confectioner built its reputation on.

Sugarfina Advent Calendar

In the interest of inclusivity, Sugarfina also created a Hanukkah collection, 8 Nights of Light, which features eight Kosher-certified noshes including Robin’s Egg Caramels, sugar cookies, Heavenly Sours, and dark chocolate sea salt caramels. Each night once the snack is pulled from its compartment, flip the drawer to light a candle in the cardboard menorah.

In addition to the above dates, eligible employees are entitled to one personal day, in accordance with the rules and policies outlined in UPP 4-14: Fringe Benefit Eligibility and Summary of Coverages .  

Calendars as a gift to partners and clients

Before the New Year, the excitement begins, people prepare for the holiday, choose gifts, think over the menu, etc.

In the business environment, the situation is the same: summing up the results, making plans for the next year, preparing gifts for clients and partners. There are a great many options for choosing gifts, depending on the field of activity of the company and the desire to surprise. But there is one detail that remains unchanged – the tradition of giving a calendar along with the main gift.

After all, this is not just a calendar, but also an advertising medium that will remind a person about your company throughout the year. A lot of calendars are given, and your partner or client can hang on the wall or put only one on the table.

The competition begins – who has the most interesting calendar. Some companies focus on design, others on creativity, others on manufacturing (materials and post-printing), and still others on content (using useful information or unusual facts, etc.)etc.).

Each company has a task to be remembered, stand out, attract attention, impress.

First of all, you need to choose the type of calendar (or several), depending on who you will be giving them to.

Calendars are:

Wall calendars are the most spectacular and have a higher price than other types of calendars. Such a calendar can complement the interior of a room or study. Especially if the calendar is large (A1, A2).Wall calendars are presented to executives and top managers, regular customers and customers, partners.

Poster Calendars is a more economical wall calendar option. The difference is that the wall calendar has 13 or 7 loose leaflets, each sheet has a calendar grid for a month and an illustration or photograph associated with this calendar month. On poster calendars, the illustration and the calendar grid for the year are placed on one sheet. Such a calendar can be presented both to employees and as a gift to visitors of specialized exhibitions.

Quarterly calendars – popular type of calendars; suitable for a gift to middle managers, managers.

Table calendars – an interesting format, in such a calendar there are 7 or 13 loose leafs; suitable for a gift to company employees and customer staff.

Pocket Calendars – a budget option, suitable for investing in orders instead of a business card or using in New Year’s Eve promotions.

Calendar is a marketing tool. Ok, that’s cool. A great opportunity to once again showcase your products. But not every company has an interesting, beautiful, exclusive product, the photos of which will delight the eye. The catch is that it is unlikely that a person will be interested in looking at pipes, nuts, concrete mixers throughout the year. But even this situation has a way out. Design and creativity to help.

Calendar of the Europromservice company.

An example of how interesting it is to present products.

Calendar of the Segment Publishing House

Non-trivial idea and presentation with humor will not leave anyone indifferent. In this manner, the calendar of the Segment publishing house was made, which reflects the business processes of creating books. Each month of the calendar demonstrates the stage of work on the creation of books, starting from the search for an author and ending with the delivery of the print run.

Corporate calendar TM “Bocado”

Another example of how standard products can be beaten.

Calendar – the most popular type of printing products in the pre-New Year period. But the problem is that the production of calendars requires more production resources and time than printing sheet printed products (leaflets, booklets).

Therefore, we advise you to order calendars in advance, so that you do not get nervous because the printing house may not have time to print the order before the New Year, and we – because we cannot physically take all incoming orders into work.

Already today you can place an order for printing calendars on Smartprint.rf by uploading a ready-made layout or ordering design development on the website.

You just need to select the print parameters:
– for wall calendars – the number of flip-flops (7 or 13), paper weight, format (A1, A2, A3), date of readiness, circulation;
– for quarterly – select a calendar grid (there are ready-made options), circulation, date of completion, minimum circulation – 1 piece;
– for desktop – select the size of the block, the material of the calendar frame and the material of the block, the date of completion and the circulation.
– for pocket ones – select the format, type of lamination, circulation and date of completion.

Prices on the website, calculation of the required circulation takes no more than 2 minutes. We deliver orders across Russia.

Calendar as a gift, an interesting creative gift for a child, friends

A calendar can be a great gift. If you think carefully, then the only disadvantage of such a gift can be given only once a year. And in all other respects it has some advantages.But I’m not talking about ordinary calendars from the market, which have thousands of copies. The progress of today’s world allows us to make the calendar a unique and original gift. I am sure that with the help of digital technology you have been able to capture many vivid events and happy moments from your life. At least 12 successful photos can be found for a personal calendar.

Make a gift calendar to order. I once did it with my own hands and from personal experience, I want to say that such a gift takes a lot of time and it is not always possible to make it look exactly the way you like it.You still have to contact the printing house for services.

If you think that it is relevant to give the calendar only on New Year’s, then you are mistaken! The calendar can be presented as a birthday present, Valentine’s Day, February 23rd, March 8th, wedding anniversary and any other holiday. The calendar can start with the month you want and end with the previous month of the next year. Any of your whims can come true.

Before ordering a calendar as a gift, think carefully about what you want to see there, and what would be nice to see the recipient of the gift there.

For example, a birthday calendar for a friend. A couple of pages from the calendar:

You can have photos of family and friends displayed by their birthday dates. In addition to public holidays, mark other holidays that matter for your friend: Medic’s Day, Angel’s Day, Shopaholic’s Day … A gift should bring joy, so you can add a couple of fancy holidays or phrases that would bring a smile on your face and joy in your heart.

A calendar with your photos will not only decorate your home, but will constantly remind you of events and people that play an important role in your life.

90,000 what is it, when to give, who makes the best?

Let’s be honest, every year more or less we give the same gift. Therefore, I see no reason to write another “the same as everyone else’s” guide to the best gifts for the New Year.

I went over last year’s post and “Oh, yes – nothing has changed.” I still donate certificates to cool places, cosmetics, books, home clothes, perfume, candles, diaries, tea / coffee / chocolate, scarves and other accessories.If you’re a little lost with great gift ideas, click on this post and get inspired.

And here we will talk about advent calendars. And no, it’s not too late! This is the whole point.

What is an Advent Calendar?

After five years of living in Europe, the advent calendar for me is an invariable attribute of every New Year and Christmas season. This is a counter of the days left until Christmas (in Catholic countries, Christmas is the main family holiday, and New Year’s Eve can be a simple party with friends in a bar).

The calendar can look anything and be made of anything. Bags or pouches, socks, boxes, sachets, envelopes … The main thing: you need 24 such containers – from December 1 to Catholic Christmas Eve (December 24). According to tradition, you fill the boxes with small gifts, most often chocolate, cookies, tea; give on the last day of November, and every day your friend opens the container with the number corresponding to the day, eats the contents and is charged with the spirit of magic.

Who should you give the Advent calendar to?

For some reason, many people think that this fun is exclusively for children. As you can imagine, I am totally against it. Every year I bought myself (or accepted as a gift) a delicious Advent calendar and happily opened the slots, devouring chocolate even before breakfast. Down with stereotypes: you can give an Advent calendar to anyone – gender, age, status do not matter.

When to give an Advent calendar?

And here’s a little difficulty.In Europe, calendars are made and bought in November, donated at the very end of the month, so that as early as December 1, everyone starts to open the “windows” and get presents. In Russia, Christmas is in January, the main holiday is New Year, and at the end of November only the most responsible take care of gifts. However, the companies have been actively producing and selling advent calendars in Russia for the past three years.

And if we are not afraid of Christmas calendars and bypass them in mid-December, they say, who needs such a gift that should have been received two weeks ago? I propose to change the tradition and present such calendars to friends for the New Year.If the Europeans, thanks to the calendars, bring the holiday closer, then we can extend it by opening cells one after another from January 1 to 24.

Who Makes the Best Advent Calendars?

The best Advent calendar is the one that is made by hand. And every winter, Western bloggers and Pinterest show up a huge variety of DIY how to make a cool and original calendar.

I decided to go the other way and choose for you the best Advent calendars that companies have released this year.You will only have to choose, order, pack and present. Wouldn’t mind finding a surprise like this under my Christmas tree.

90,000 July photo in the calendar presented to Menshov by his daughter turned out to be prophetic

Today Yulia Menshova shared her memories of her father after his death – the daughter of Vladimir Menshov published her photo with him on the social network, which became a symbol of their farewell.Recall that the filmmaker passed away after an illness on July 5.

Yulia told Instagram how she drove into her parents’ empty apartment yesterday. Note that the widow of Vladimir Menshov, actress Vera Alentova, is now in intensive care. Shortly before the death of her husband, she was hospitalized.

In her parents’ apartment, Yulia Menshova stumbled upon a loose-leaf calendar hanging on the wall. She herself gave it to her father for the New Year. True, six months ago I did not know that this gift would become a sad symbol.

“Dad loved wall art calendars all his life. Having started a big family photo session in December 2020, I had a secret plan. I wanted to make a big desk calendar from the photos I received. And this New Year’s gift was a success: Dad was very pleased and glad!” – Julia began her story on the social network.

She added that six months later she had already forgotten how she selected the frames for the calendar, distributing them by month, but the photo chosen for July instantly acquired a bitter meaning.

“When I drove into my parents’ apartment, I came across June, frozen on the calendar, and almost automatically threw a page … And there was this very photo. Which now seems to me to be a symbol of our farewell …” – Menshova commented on the photo.

Julia and Vladimir Menshovy

In the photograph, she is looking at her father sitting next to her, whose figure is out of focus in the frame.

“Daddy dissolves in the eternity of love! Far from only mine! All those who grieve today.Everyone to whom he gave joy, hope and consolation with his films. Everyone for whom he became an example of human sincerity and integrity of nature “, – concluded Yulia Menshova.

Earlier, Yulia thanked everyone on the social network who does not remain indifferent to her grief.

“Dad, these days Moscow unconditionally believes in tears,” Menshova turned to her father on Instagram today. And she was forced to question the life-affirming motto contained in the title of his Oscar-winning melodrama “Moscow does not believe in tears.”

Let us remind you that Vladimir Menshov died at the age of 82. In the program “The Fate of a Man” on the TV channel “Russia 1”, he admitted to Boris Korchevnikov that he did not expect to live to be 80 years old. The director called his anniversary in 2019 “a crazy figure”.

90,000 Advent calendar: history and traditions

A story about a cardboard box and sweet cupcakes.

In the distant 19th century, a boy named Gerhard lived in a German family.He was very fond of the holidays, like all children. But most of all he liked Christmas, which he always looked forward to. When little Gerhard once again asked his mother how soon Christmas would come, she offered him a game with which he himself could count the days until this holiday.

Frau Leng, the boy’s mother, made a calendar out of thick paper, where each figure for December was a cardboard box with a sweet cupcake attached to it, which little Gerhard loved so much.Thus, eating one delicacy a day, he could now calculate by himself how long it would take for Christmas.

The boy grew up, but did not forget this wonderful tradition, which his mother came up with. Working at a Munich printing house, Gerhard decided to release a series of Advent calendars that would bring the same joy to children as he experienced in his childhood in anticipation of a magical holiday. So, in 1908, the very first Advent calendar appeared, which consisted of 24 colored cards attached to a cardboard board.Despite the fact that in the 30s of the 20th century the printing house ceased to work, about thirty different types of Christmas calendars for children were issued.

In 1958, the first calendars with chocolate inside go on sale in Germany. This is a classic version of the Advent calendar, which remains one of the most popular to this day. Very soon, many neighboring countries began to adopt the custom of giving children a calendar so that they could open a small gift every day and rejoice at the approach of Christmas.

Of course, over the years, Advent calendars have had the most varied designs. In wartime, they depicted soldiers in Nazi uniforms, a swastika and other attributes of fascism. Fortunately, immediately after the war, more fun calendars for children began to be produced, with color pictures and images of various animals. In addition, Christian illustrations have returned.

For a long time in the eastern part of Germany there were calendars with socialist symbols painted on them.And the boys especially loved the stories that were devoted to space exploration, for example, pictures with launching rockets. However, many parents still preferred to buy Advent calendars with a festive, winter theme, because it created a fabulous atmosphere that was in the air from the very beginning of December.

Advent calendars can be seen on sale in mid-November. The choice is so huge that you want to buy not one, but several at once. Many do not want to buy store-bought ones, so they do it with their own hands.And it doesn’t have to be chocolate as a gift. Creative parents invent such surprises for their beloved children that children are indescribable delight. After all, moms and dads know exactly what their child will like. There are a large number of ideas on the Internet on how to make an Advent calendar with your own hands.

By the way, now there are many calendars, not only for children, but also for adults. After all, adults also love gifts. Many companies that have their own website even offer online advent calendars, which you can open every day by entering the site and receive some pleasant surprises.It is completely free, the maximum that may be required of you is registration.

90,000 advertising, gift or useful calendar? – Access

What is a calendar? At first glance, the answer is obvious – these are advertising products based on the time disappearance system.The second answer is that it is rather a gift or souvenir. The main information function has faded a little into the background at a time when conferences, exhibitions and corporate events were mass customers of souvenir products. So the calendar has become one of the main attributes of corporate life.

According to experts, in the first half of 2020, the branding market has dropped significantly. Nevertheless, the demand for calendar design and replication keeps positive dynamics.

Functional options

Modern printing offers many options to present the classic calendar.All of these forms work for different consumers and in different locations, but have the same basic functional options.

  • Visibility of planned activities .

It can be assumed that someone will find an argument against saying that you can plan on your tablet or phone. The answer is simple. A wall calendar with quarter divisions, the so-called quarterly, is a highly visual element at any workplace: in the office, in reception areas, at home at the desk.

Such calendars are especially appreciated by specialists who, due to their professional duties, need to prepare working documents or reports exactly by dates. Coral printing house offers quarter calendars on one mainspring or three. That is, every month out of three it is attached independently, which increases the variability of use.

Of course, planning is good with workers’ control. I must say that it is the moment when you can reasonably put a cross on the completed task that allows you to get true satisfaction from the work performed.For this purpose, many carry pocket calendars in a purse or wallet.

  • Souvenir or gift.

The option, which is formulated as a souvenir, is actually much wider. We can say that a desk calendar can monthly remind a loved one of someone’s sympathy. We can vividly recall the significant events of the past year. It all depends on the imagination of the customer. On the website you can see the options and order an individual design, or draw an amateur sketch, preparing it for printing.

  • Corporate identity.

This option combines several directions: formation and maintenance of the corporate spirit, stimulates and motivates the team. Such calendars leave corporate beacons in the team of employees every time they look at it.

Company calendars work perfectly as a gift to partners and contractors. Taking into account the current state of business, the corporate calendar is almost a symbol of the success and resilience of the enterprise.

Standard versions

Individual order of the calendar can be made using special patterns. Although the standard varieties of calendars, which are designed for mass circulation, are calculated taking into account manufacturability and economy.

Considering the proposed location, distinguish between:

  • wall,
  • tabletop,
  • pocket,
  • pasted into diaries and notebooks.

Format, circulation, color, use of slides, photos or graphics – all this is possible when making calendars, it is coordinated with the designers and technologists of the Coral-print company phone: +7 495 663-73-81, info @ coral-print …ru.

Calendar products have never lost their relevance, and this is unlikely to happen in the near future.
