(posted Aug 2008) Okay, let's just face it: with all the calendars we do, we don't make much time to update the NEWS page. For the latest news, please call us at 714-575-0000, and we'll keep you personally posted!
NEW LOWER PRICES!
(posted Aug 2007) With some recent paper and equipment efficiencies, we've managed to maintain the top quality printing, incredible designs ... AND lower our prices significantly! We're sure you'll be happily surprised... but the total number of calendars we can create per season does have a finite limit, so you should act fast!

(posted Aug 2006) It doesn't seem possible that we haven't updated since February ... but I guess we haven't! We're proud to announce our agreement with Surfillustrated.com to be the publisher for The Girls of Orange County. This 2007 calendar is the only calendar that we've ever found to have a full-version DVD inserted inside, and will be at major retail locations around the country. It's very rare and difficult to get a new calendar -- especially one featuring girls! -- into retail, so congratulations to Surfillustrated for such amazing photographs, and such beautiful girls. Well done!
Because we handle websites and various projects, people regularly ask me where I get my web hosting handled ... we use 1and1.com, and they have been amazing. I've looked everywhere, and haven't found a better spot to park my websites. I encourage you to use them.
(posted Feb 2006) We're proud to announce an alliance with a fantastic overseas printer. While in the past we offered overseas printing, it was generally in minimum quantities of 25,000 to 50,000 pieces. Now we can offer quantities as low as 1,000 pieces, from a very high-quality vendor that we know that we can trust. This is really a unique situation ... we can consult with you on the marketing locally, design locally, prepare for printing locally, and manage locally ... yet you still have the cost advantage of overseas print production. Amazing!!
(posted Feb 2006) Book a calendar over 2,500 quantity in the first or second quarter and you may be entitled to free photography services! We're not talking some cheap camera in a small studio ... we're talking great photography, in studio or in some cases on location! This is a new offer, so please call and ask about it for details.
(posted Mar 2006) The Calendar Factory is proud to announce a strategic alliance with SurfIllustrated.com. This supersite is the top independent surf art, photography and surf girls site in the world. Over the past few years they have photographed over 350 models. So, should your calendar need models and/or high-end photography featuring those models, we can offer you special access and special pricing through our relationship with Surfillustrated.
EVEN BIGGER CONGRATULATIONS!
(posted Feb 2006) Congratulations to JDRF North Carolina, Angela Kerr, and The Calendar Factory Team for winning the Graphic Design USA award for Outstanding Calendar! This is a prestigious national award, and we're pleased to be honored with such great recognition.
(posted Feb 2006) Congratulations to company President Jason Niedle, who was recently nominated (and approved) to be a Area Director for Entrepreneurs' Organization.

(posted 2005) Please welcome Erin Arriola to our Calendar Consulting team. She's amazing, and we're very pleased to have her aboard.
(posted Aug 2005) We've just noticed that the News page hadn't been updated in several months. So we thought we better put something up to keep it fresh. News ... let's see. Jason is now President of the local chapter of Entrepreneurs' Organization. We're full into "calendar season" and pumping out more calendars than any previous year. We've developed a number of 2007 retail calendar candidates that we're very excited about for presentation to the nation's major stores. Oh ... and we're intending to expand the product line from calendars to high-end custom corporate apparel. We've found the clients who do one, usually do the other. Additionally, we have amazing expertise and can save nearly anyone money with a better product. So if you need shirts, hats, sweatshirts -- even jeans! -- let us know and we can save you some money.
(posted Apr 2005) Does your organization do catalogs? Would you like to have your catalogs stay around for a year rather than a few minutes? We've developed a revoulutionary new product call the Planalog(tm), a hybrid between a traditional catalog and a calendar ... ask us how it works!
