Why We Love Wall Calendars


You can save an awful lot of money on marketing if you only think about the beauty of wall calendars.

Let’s just ponder that for a minute. Here it is this totally visible, practical item that will be placed on a wall right in front of your client and will sit there every day of every week of every month until someone turns the page to reveal a new and interesting visual to celebrate and clock the next month, which will continue to hang there every day of every week until the next month, when the whole beautiful ritual will happen again.

It’s genius when you think about it. Of course, this is reliant on the fact that your client will have a wall calendar, but the fact is that in spite of digital calendars on phones and through our emails and computers, people still like the reassurance of things such as Desktop Calendars and Wall calendars. There’s something about the hands on nature of the product that people like.

And there’s something about the powerful nature of it’s marketing that everyone can like.

Here at Heaton Press we believe it’s one of the best ways to get your name in front of clients.

It’s also really quick and easy to set one up. This is something we can help you design.

And what’s really important for you is that you can have a different message or promotion each month, which makes getting a Wall Calendar a must-have in your marketing plan really.

There’s no minimum order and now’s the perfect time to order so that you can send them out before the new year starts.

Christmas Cards: A Tradition Businesses Can Love


Now the orders are streaming in from business clients to get their Christmas cards on order and sent out, we can’t think of much more than Christmas some days.

So, it’s interesting to think about how long the tradition of the Christmas card has actually been going, and why it’s such a fantastic one to keep up.

This is what we know:

It was way back in 1843 that the tradition of sending Christmas cards began. A man called Sir Henry Cole and his artist friend John Horsley designed the first card. And it showed the heart of Christmas spirit with images of caring for the poor as well as a huge Christmas Dinner in the middle.

There was a time when only the rich could send post. But as transport expanded and the train network began to be built they became more and more popular.

And then printing technology allowed more and more cards to be produced in large numbers meaning the cost was reduced and everyone was allowed to send cards.

By the early 1900s sending Christmas cards was common place across Europe.

The main visuals centring around the nativity. Although in late Victorian times there were plenty of robins and snow scenes.

Some interesting Christmas card facts:

  • 45% of all cards sent in the UK are Christmas cards.
  • 2 billion Christmas cards were sent in the US compared to 900 million in the UK in 2017.
  • The most cards sent by one person in a year is 62, 824 – nearly enough to cover a football pitch.
