CALENDAR PREPARATION

We have three options for creating your calendar:

Work with one of our recommended graphic designers to personalize your calendar. Price depends on how much work you'll need, but can be as low as $350.00. The graphic designer will deal with us directly to get the necessary files, and will upload them directly to us when done. You will give us your final approval before we go to print.
Please call our designer directly. (Price will be negotiated between you and our designer. We take no responsibility for work done).

Recommended for: Minimum hassle for you. Better results when working with a professional who understands our calendar. Great option for most people, but allow extra time when working with a graphic designer.

Work with your own graphic designer. Receive the templates in InDesign, and have your designer delete the background and give back to us a PDF file with the backgrounds deleted as in option #3. It will be your responsibility to
make sure your PDFs are prepared in the proper format and to upload the files to us.

Recommended for: Same as #1. You may have a relationship with your own designer; Somewhat more work on your part to make sure both you and your designer understand our system.

You receive: 32-page file template which will include a low resolution copy of our calendar placed in the background as a guide. Halachic times calculated for your area will also be included.

Your job: Personalize as you please, then delete the background, print to "press quality" PDF and upload to us on our webpage.

File format received: InDesign (CS3) File format to submit to us: High resolution PDF with fonts embedded. Check out our F.A.Q. page for info on how to prepare the PDF file properly.

Recommended for: "Do it yourself" people - Pros only. Keep in mind that you're spending thousands on a nice, well- designed product; you (and your advertisers) will be happier if your personalized info is welldesigned as well.

Proofs

Just upload your file to us, and you will be given an opportunity to see a digital proof of your calendar. The PDF proof will combine your artwork with a background of our calendar, giving you a real representation of what your printed calendar will look like.

You will receive one proof FREE of charge. If you need to change anything in the file which was not a printer's error, it will require us to send you a new proof. There is an additional charge of $50 for the second proof, $75 for the third proof and $100 for each additional proof requested. This is an extra charge passed on to us from the printer. We have no choice.

PLEASE MAKE SURE all decisions from your end are final before the first proof. We will only go to print once we receive your final approval.
