Online PR News – 22-July-2010 – – BNoticed, a full service promotional products distributor of logo products and customized apparel, announced the Best Custom logo calendars for 2011.
Customized calendars continue to be a valuable marketing tool for businesses. They provide 365 days of advertising impressions which is among the longest durations of any advertising options. In addition, calendars continue to serve a useful function for work and home based recipients. “To really capture the marketing potential of a custom calendar, organizations should leverage the innovative features offered by many customized calendars today including using custom photos, personalization, and custom date grids,” says Gregg Taft, owner of BNoticed.
Beyond their marketing potential for businesses, Calendars can be valuable for non-profit organizations and schools for fundraising and outreach efforts. “A non-profit organization can customize a calendar with photos from past events, illustrations featuring their services, or images of their beneficiaries” says Taft. “A school can customize the grid to identify school holidays, annual events, Parent Teacher Meetings and much more.” For 2011, there are a wide range of custom calendars available which can capture much more than just a logo.
The Best Custom Calendars for 2011 are:
1. Image Personalized Calendars
In addition to featuring the sender’s logo on each page of the calendar, these highly innovative calendars integrate the name of the recipient into each of the 12 different photos in the calendar. There’s a large library of photos to choose from as well as fully custom photo options available. Organizations can utilize their own name in place of the recipients when ordering extra calendars for unplanned requests.
2. Custom Logo Wall Calendars
Custom Logo Wall Calendars feature customized images for each month. These calendars enable organizations to tailor the calendar with photos from past events, images of their products or services or unique artwork targeted to their preferred demographics. In addition to the organizations logo, the date grid section of the calendars can be customized with key organization or community events. These calendars can create a one-of-a-kind product for gifting, fundraising, outreach or resale.
3. Custom Desk Pad Calendars
With options similar to the Custom Wall Calendars, these desk blotter styled calendars continue to be popular in the workplace. Consider smaller styled versions designed specifically for cubicles and workstations.

6. Custom Mouse Pad Calendars
For business to business marketing, Mouse Pad Calendars can help keep an organizations logo in front of potential customers. In addition to calendars applied to more traditional Mouse Pads, businesses should consider some of the more innovative alternatives like a Recycled Paper Notepad Mouse Pad Calendar that features monthly tear-away sheets that can be written on.
7. Custom Calendar Magnets
calendar magnets are popular items that are particularly well suited for consumer marketing and outreach programs since many people will retain these magnets on their home refrigerators for easy reference throughout the year.

Photo Frame Calendar Magnets are increasing in popularity with consumers who can display their personal photos within the calendar frame.
