Artwork Requirements


We accept digital print-ready artwork. Faxes, photocopies, business cards, newsprint or art requiring resizing, scanning or editing is NOT print-ready and cannot be accepted. All art files should be aggregated into a single folder and compressed as a .zip or .rar file. If the final size of the compressed folder is less than 10 MB, you can submit art via e-mail at art@bkpress.com. For files over 10 MB, please click on the artwork upload link to send your files. For files over 10 MB, please go to our website and click on the artwork upload link to send your files. For art that includes text as part of the design, we recommend vector based art in order to achieve the best results possible (ex. picture with a caption/title overlaid on top). We also recommend vector art for the logo imprint area. Please convert ALL type to outlines or curves as this will avoid any font issues. However, when vector art is not available and you must send rasterized images for logos and text, art should be 900-1200 dpi and should always be sent at 100% or larger of the finished print size. We accept JPG, TIF, EPS, PDF, PSD. When submitting your own fully custom calendar design, supported programs include Adobe Suite CS6, CC, or a print ready PDF. Art that requires additional work to be usable will be billed at $90 (t) per hour.

Order Submission Checklist

2. Specify your image set selection (All-Stars or 5-14).

Frequently Asked Questions

Can both, first and last name be included in the images?
It depends. Some images have the space available to include both first and last name, others do not. Trying to fit both names in an image that is not meant to hold both names will produce unrealistic results. The cover will include first and last name. Image sets 5, 6, 10, 12, 13 & 14 were created to hold first and last names on all 12 images.

Can less than 100 names/calendars be ordered?
Yes. For items with a published minimum of 100, the absolute minimum is 50 with a 15% less than minimum fee added to the 100 column price.

Is there a set-up fee?
No. There is no set-up if you use one of our pre-determined image sets (all-stars or 5-14), use the standard cover & layout and run the calendar for 12 months.

Do you send a proof before printing?
Yes. You should receive a virtual PDF proof of your calendar within 5 business days from receipt of your properly formatted data and logo file. The proof will include the logo and one name from your data file. Additional proofs are $40 (t).

Can I personalize the image area with a company name rather than a person’s name?
Sure! However, keep in mind that company names are sometimes long and as a result the image personalization may look unrealistic. Enter the entire company name in column A of your spreadsheet and choose from image sets 5, 6, 10, 12, 13 or 14.

Can I submit my own images for personalization?
It can be done, however, images will need to be submitted for review since not all images are suitable for personalization. Submitting your own images will incur an additional set-up cost per image varying on image complexity.

What is the character limit on names?
13 characters or less for First Name and 13 for Last Name depending on the image but no more than 25 combined.

What if we need a few more calendars?
We offer a one (1) time re-order for a 12 quantity minimum at the same unit price as the original order on all image personalized calendar orders.

Rush Orders: It is our general policy to do everything possible to serve the customer’s needs. If we can meet a rush delivery without causing inefficiencies in our production process (such as excessive overtime, rush order of materials, etc), then we will produce a rush order without any surcharge. If a rush situation does involve extra cost, then any surcharges will be quoted on a case by case basis.

Errors/Corrections: If an order contains an error that is the fault of the factory, then we will repair or replace the product or issue a refund.
