FAQ

What is the difference between your acrylic calendars?

All of our acrylic calendars are manufactured using local materials, printers, and manufacturers here in the Rocky Mountains. Our calendars are printed on the back using special ink that will never come off.  The prototype we have hanging in our kitchen from 2013 still looks great. We can’t imagine why they won’t last forever. Just make sure your 2 year old doesn’t take a hammer to it.

CLEAR ACRYLIC

These beautiful calendars are NOT MAGNETIC. So don’t order number magnets, unless you enjoy getting extra emails from us.

Whatever the wall color is behind the calendar, you will see it.  Depending on your lighting, there may be some shadows of the lines and text on the wall behind the calendar.

-PREMIUM CLEAR ACRYLIC: are manufactured using 3/8” thick acrylic.  This means that they are very stiff when you write on the them, and the thick, polished clear sides look ultra-cool.

-STANDARD CLEAR ACRYLIC are manufactured using 3/16” thick acrylic. This means they are somewhat stiff, but there will be a bit of give when you write and erase on them. The sides will still look cool, just not as thick. 

TRANSLUCENT ACRYLIC

These equally beautiful calendars are NOT MAGNETIC. They are frosted on the back, and look like real glass from the side. They have a slight green tint to them. You don’t really see the wall color behind them.  

MAGNETIC ACRYLIC

These incredible calendars have the same amazing acrylic surface, but they ARE magnetic!  They are all white, and hold our fabulous number magnets.  The acrylic is thinner, so it has a framework on the back to help keep it totally stiff as you write on it.  You don’t see this framework unless you are looking at the calendar with your head against the wall.  The framework is inset, not right on the edge.  

With any of our Acrylic Calendars, everyone will think you have the absolute coolest calendar ever. 

Custom and personalized orders

For custom sizes and designs, contact us for a quote. To give you an idea of pricing, here is some info. NOTE: amounts are just estimates; amount may be a bit higher or a bit lower, depending on the configuration.

For Premium, 3/8” Clear A
crylic boards, OR our Magnetic Acrylic Boards:

Boards are approximately $.50 square inch, which includes a custom designed acrylic board, and gold or stainless steel mounting hardware.

For example, if you want a quote on a board that is 24“ X 38”:

24” X 38” = 912”

912 X .50 = $456.00

Shipping is generally $30.00.

If the board is more than 1440 square inches, (10 sf), the shipping charge will increase by $100, to $130, since it will be oversized. Very large boards may cost even more to ship. Contact us for rates.

Production time for a custom board can be 4-8 weeks, depending on how busy our manufacturing partners are.

Do your markers erase completely?

Wet-erase markers erase completely from acrylic.  
Unlike dry-erase markers which rub off if you brush against them, once wet-erase markers dry (which takes very little time), they do not generally come off until you wipe off the ink with a wet cloth.

How will lighting affect my calendar?

We have samples you can order to test out your lighting (or you could use a piece of glass from a small picture frame.)  
Hold the acrylic about an inch away from the wall to see how shadows will affect the board. If you have ceiling lighting that is close to the wall, it could cause shadows from the grid lines and writing on the board.  If that is the case, then we recommend either our Translucent Acrylic or our white, Magnetic Acrylic.

How do you account for the cost of the calendars?

The price of the calendar reflects the quality of the calendar's American craftsmanship. We use only the highest quality materials, from the acrylic to the ink to the hardware.  We use local shops to help us manufacture our products.  Our philosophy on consuming products is to buy less, but when you do buy, make it a purchase of a quality item that will last a long time and looks fabulous!
