Nowadays printing technology has progressed so far that you can have your own business wall calendars with your own pictures. Do you have a product line that you want to display all year on your customer’s wall? Do you have a fleet of tow trucks, boats, taxis, or a group of buildings? You can now use today’s digital cameras or smart phones to capture the images for a wall calendar. Here are 5 tips to help you and a printing company make the best calendar you have ever seen. Custom Calendar Printing is finally here.
Furnish hi resolution images. Your beautiful full color pictures will look professional on your wall calendar if they are at least 300 dpi. So for a picture that is 10 inches by 10 inches, you need 3,000 pixels by 3,000 pixels. When you multiply that out, you get 9 million, or 9 megapixels.
- Pick the best background for your picture. If you have a fleet of trucks, and want a different truck on each page of your calendar, be wary of the background. Do you want a background with a telephone pole and electric lines, a stop sign, a dog scratching his fleas?
- Lighting. The best lighting will give make the colors stand out. Too bright light will make deep shadows. Too dark lighting will look too dark.
- Washing and grooming. If you don’t have time to groom and wash, you will be sorry every time you look at your calendar picture.
- Balance. A great picture will have the subject in the center, or moving to the center.
