Calendars- Old School Marketing or Still Relevant?

Eons ago when I started in the promotional products business calendars were a staple of the industry.  Almost every business used some type, from the small ones with adhesive backs and the tear off month (press-n-stick) that are the perfect size for cash registers to large month-at-a-glance styles that you see in may offices.
Do you still use a paper “hard” calendar or do you depend on your computer or phone?  I do a little of both.  My office has a spot for a year at a glance calendar that I depend on multiple times a day- and I want the same one every year because it works perfecty, fits the spot and makes my work more efficient because I know it’s right there. All the time. 
Many of our clients that do calendars like to do the same one or same style every year because, just like me, people have a spot they put the calendar every year and that’s where it fits.  Change the style, shape, size and it throws everything off.  Banks, insurance companies and funeral homes are some of the industries that like to do a variety of styles- both for home use, business clients, churches and more.  There are so many styles and themes available there really is a calendar perfect for every marketing need.
What type of calendar will work best for your advertising message?  That answer really depends on what type of business you have and who you are trying to reach. Check out some of these examples below:
Smaller adhesive stick on calendars are inexpensive, easy to pop into an envelope with a holiday card or an invoice and mail and come in a variety of shapes and themes.  With shaped vinyl headers and one month per sheet calendar pads, year at a glance removable adhesive and keyboard or computer calendars, you have a lot of options to choose from.
