I've been looking for somewhere to get a calendar printed.

I got prices and samples from a few places but because I was looking to print just 100 copies they tended to be uneconomical.

Then found this company Fileprint
They are completely automated which means you do the work setting your publication up but you can buy just one copy.
Price seems to stay the same for multiple copies but the postage and packing reduces considerably.

I got an A5 calendar printed up and spiral bound for 3.60 just as a test run and I have to say I'm delighted with it.

Much better than printing it yourself and the proper spiral binding is the icing on the cake.

Very interesting - any chance of a photo of your calendar?

How was the paper quality and colour reproduction?

Thanks.

It's so good I'm willing to order 150 more.
There is a free sample offer why not try that and see for yourself?
I'll willingly post up a picture of one page if you want me to.

Thanks, I hadn't seen the free sample link before - I've ordered one.

I just used their price calculator and for an A5 calendar on the heaviest card with 16 pages (13 months, a photo on top and a month grid below) comes out as 1.93. What paper, etc. did you use for 3.60, or does that include postage?

Thanks again for posting this link - I printed my own calendars last year and sold them for 8 and people complained about the price! This means I'll be able to sell them cheaper Smile

Picture of Calendar
I've put up the calendar picture - the inside page reflected a bit of light.

Postage and packing is 2.99 for one but on 100 it's 10

I had it printed on 100-120gsm weight - I'll probably go up to 200gsm.
I have someting else arriving tommorow printed at the 350gsm wight so I'll be able to report back

Good find.

Would work well for my company stuff as well which is good cos so many other places have a minimum run.

Thanks for uploading the photos, it looks great! I had a play with their online template for calendars (although it's only for 2008) and they would print on the heavy silk (150-200gsm).

I've had a look too and the only template for a calendar is for 2008 am I being thick???

How did you do yours Merl???

I can't see an A5 option or where to change dimensions either Sad
