A3 calendars explained

A3 calendars consist of a 12 page portrait (not landscape) book plus a front and back cover. The main section can be printed on 150 or 170gsm satin or gloss paper and is printed on one side only. The front cover is printed on one side only on 310gsm Pearl Artboard. The back consists of unprinted 310gsm Pearl Artboard. Calendars are wiro bound at the top with a calendar hanger in the middle and a thumb cut. When hung, the image would normally be at the top, and the dates at the bottom of the A3 page. The front cover would normally have a photograph and title. A3 calendars are more expensive than A4 calendars but offer more flexibility in design.
