Printing customs calendars can easily cost between $5 to $12 a piece, depending on the quantity of purchase.
4) The Calendars Return On Investment
2017 Custom Printed Calendars offer the perfect opportunity to aggressively promote your products and services on a monthly, weekly or daily basis.

A hardware and home supply store, for example, might include a spring cleaning checklist in April and a winter preparation checklist in October.
Many businesses think that calendars are only good for branding doesn't mean you can't make it work as a direct-marketing piece. At the end of the day, it's the return on investment is what will inspire next year's custom calendar. Calendar branding efforts aren't easily measured, direct-marketing methods are. Include cut-out coupons or discount codes for e-commerce sites each week or month for your specials so you can track your returns on investment. Look at it this way, if your customer makes a purchase, that will likely pay for itself and that year-long investment per customer will be worth the risk.
To increase returns on investment from the onset, you should also print your calendars in high volumes. Print as many as you'll distribute in one run to keep your cost per calendar low, thus increasing your profit per sale.
