You know what we love? Seeing our products in action.
And—hands down—the one we see the most is our desk calendars, especially on reception counters or consultant or sales reps desks. If you aren’t familiar with our small logo calendars, here’s why they’re so popular:
Promotional calendars take up a small spot on your desk, but are highly practical reference calendars for your patients or customers.
It really is as simple as that. Whether you’ve just finished your dentist appointment, or are at village hall getting picking up a building permit, the seemingly vintage calendar design suddenly makes a lot of sense.
Not just for receptionists! Here’s why secretaries, sales reps, and consultants also appreciate desk calendars:
Let’s look at a few real-use examples.
The doctor’s office receptionist and appointment scheduler
A patient at your medical office needs space to sign some forms and set up a follow-up appointment. It would be a nuisance having to work around a large counter calendar, or looking down at paperwork, then searching for the ubiquitous—but sometimes hard-to-find—wall calendar. Instead, you tuck a small desk calendar to the side by the pens. Takes up very little space, and is in a practical, easy-to-reference spot.
The busy sales rep
Or perhaps you’re a sales rep who schedules a lot of appointments. A desk calendar with a memo pad by your phone makes scheduling meetings and presentations a lot easier, but doesn’t take up too much valuable desk space.
The insurance agent
An agent is meeting with some new clients, and they are unsure which policies they need. So the agent gives them all the info they need, then references the calendar and asks if an upcoming date will work for them.
A desk calendar might be small, but it fits the space. No matter the setting, no matter the industry, it’s easy to reference whether you’re filling out paperwork or scheduling appointments.

Who gives out these desk calendars?
Anyone who wants to promote their business, service, cause, or event.
For example, the local barber might give calendars to local business owners to display on their desks to stay top of mind. The grocer might do the same, advertising specialty services their store provides. The chamber of commerce might hand them out to all members to use on their work desks or reception counters.
Promotional calendars are not only an extremely effective advertising medium, they are also a highly practical, usable tool for your customers.
