Saddle stitched wall calendars are composed of 28 letter sized pages (6 tabloid inner paper sheets and 1 cover sheet, printed on both sides , folded in half and stapled). Printed in full colour.
Finished size is 8.5″ x 11″.
A 1/8″ hole is drilled in the centre for hanging the calendar on the wall.
When hanging on the wall, the calendar is opened to 11″ x 17″, with your image at the top and the month grid at the bottom.
Creased cover for clean, professional fold without cracking.
Wall calendars with saddle stitching are made up of 28 page prints:
Of the 24 pages, 15 of them are images.
To make the format work, an extra page spread is added after December. Normally we use this space for a full year reference calendar of the following year (year display). Alternatively, the final spread and back cover can be left blank or put in content of your choice.
Pages 26 and 27 are optional only in the sense that you can customize what to put there. They are absolutely required to complete the saddle stitch without blank pages.
This gives you the opportunity to be creative with your designs. A full year calendar of the next year is a good idea.
