All the extended HELP available is right here on a single page. Divided into sections, use the links in the right column to navigate to the HELP you need, whether it be for ordering Preprinted calendars or for ordering Personalized calendars, including preparing and uploading your Image-File.


GENERAL INFORMATION

  • My Wall Hanging Cloth Calendars measure approximately 15 X 26 inches and are "Natural" in color. A dowel and string are included with each calendar to provide for hanging on your wall or from a ceiling hook.
  • Sundays, US Holidays, religious and misc holidays are highlighted according to the type of holiday. A Legend is printed on your calendar which indicates how all this is done. I'll also highlight up to ten (10) additional *"Special Dates" for you at no extra charge! *"Special Dates" will be encircled in "red" to distinguish them from all other Holidays and Observances. Additional *"Special Dates" may be purchased during Checkout.
  • Orders are shipped within 3-5 business days after your CCNow order has been accepted & approved, and once you have uploaded your image file if you are ordering a Personalized calendar. Delays may occur during peak holiday season, so please keep that in mind when you place your order.
  • All my calendars are available for every year starting with 2001. If you collect cloth calendars and have missed one of those years, you'll be able to buy it here.
*Please NOTE that when you select a "Special Date", it is only the numerical date that is highlighted on your calendar. There is no space available to indicate what that date is for. The "Special Date" is your reminder of some upcoming event that is significant to you. It is assumed that you already know what that date represents. Likewise, all my calendars highlight holidays such as Christmas, but they do not specifically say it is Christmas beyond the date of December 25th. I assume you already know what December 25th represents. Please do not include details other than the Month and Day expecting them to be integrated into your Special Date. If you do include such additional information, it may result in delaying the processing of your order.



USING THE CCNOW SHOPPING CART

When you click on any of the Shopping Cart buttons, whether it is the "View Cart", "View Cart-Checkout" or a product's "Add to Cart" button, you will temporarily be redirected away from this web site and to the CCNow web site. Clicking on the Continue Shopping link or button (depending on whether you have items in your cart or not) in the CCNow Shopping Cart will bring you back to my web site, and in most cases, to the page you were previously on.

In the case of PayPal payments, when you select that payment option in the CCNow Checkout process, you will be redirected temporarily to PayPal's web site. This action may or may not open into a new browser window. When you have finished with the PayPal process, you will be redirected back to CCNow and an Order Confirmation/Thank You page. If you do not see the "Continue Shopping" link at the bottom of your confirmation page, or otherwise closed or lost your CCnow page, just point your browser back to 2001ce.com and click on the "FILE UPLOAD" button found there.



PREPRINTED CALENDARS

The slideshow in the left column displays a sampling of the calendar designs that are available. Clicking on one of them will take you to that calendar's page location in the catalog. Clicking the "CATALOG" button opens the catalog from the top.

Once you are on the catalog page, click on the "Add to Cart" button next to the item(s) you wish to purchase and preview your order on the CCNow Shopping Cart page. Click on the calendar thumbnail to open a product details page with a larger image. You can alternately add calendars to your shopping cart from the details page.

On the CCNow Shopping Cart page begin your purchase by Selecting:
  1. Your desired calendar quantity
  2. Your desired calendar year (2001 - 2016)
  3. Your optional FREE up-to-ten *Special Dates, as well as your additional Special Dates if you should elect to purchase them. To purchase additional dates, please check "YES" on the Radio Button titled: "Special Dates 10-pack" on your CCNow Shopping Cart page, giving you a total of (20) twenty Special Dates for inclusion on your calendar(s). This is an "Honor System", as the Shopping Cart cannot tell how many dates you have supplied. However, if you add additional Special Dates and do not purchase them, I will email you with the option to cancel and re-submit your invoice correctly or reply to my email with the (10) ten Special dates you would like to have. If I do not receive a reply, I will include your dates in the order they were submitted up to the FREE (10) ten Special Dates limit.
*Please NOTE that "Special Dates" on your calendar do not include supporting text or label identification.


Return to the catalog by clicking the "Continue Shopping" link button (found on your CCNow Shopping Cart page) to order additional calendars, then continue through the CCNow Checkout process.

When you have finished with your selections and begin the Checkout process, you will be given the choice to pay for your purchase using your Credit Card with CCNow or pay for your purchase using PayPal.

If you choose to pay using CCNow you will continue on their web site with Checkout. If you choose to pay using PayPal you will be redirected to their web site to complete your payment and then redirected back to CCNow to receive confirmation and details of your purchase on the CCNow Order Complete page.

PERSONALIZED CALENDARS

It is always a good idea to "Bookmark" or save to your "Favorites" folder, this web site, so that you will be able to come back here to upload your image-file in case you somehow get lost during the ordering process.

On the Personalized Cloth Calendars product order page click on the "Add to Cart" button and you will be redirected to the CCNow Shopping Cart page where you will begin your purchase by Selecting from the following options:
  1. Your desired calendar quantity
  2. Your desired calendar year (2001 - 2016)
  3. Your desired options for placing your image into the calendar
  4. Your personal text message if you wish to have one
  5. Your optional FREE up-to-ten *Special Dates, as well as your additional Special Dates if you should elect to purchase them. To purchase additional dates, please check "YES" on the Radio Button titled: "Special Dates 10-pack" on your CCNow Shopping Cart page, giving you a total of (20) twenty Special Dates for inclusion on your calendar(s). This is an "Honor System", as the Shopping Cart cannot tell how many dates you have supplied. However, if you add additional Special Dates and do not purchase them, I will email you with the option to cancel and re-submit your invoice correctly or reply to my email with the (10) ten Special dates you would like to have. If I do not receive a reply, I will include your dates in the order they were submitted up to the FREE (10) ten Special Dates limit.
*Please NOTE that "Special Dates" on your calendar do not include supporting text or label identification.

Return to my web site/catalog by clicking the "Continue Shopping" link button (found on your CCNow Shopping Cart page) to order additional calendars for different image-files, or to order from my Cloth Calendar Preprinted Designs. Then continue through the CCNow Checkout process.

When you have finished with your selections and begin the Checkout process, you will be given the choice to pay for your purchase using your Credit Card with CCNow or pay for your purchase using PayPal.

If you choose to pay using CCNow you will continue on their web site with Checkout. If you choose to pay using PayPal you will be redirected to their web site to complete your payment and then redirected back to CCNow to receive confirmation and details of your purchase on the CCNow Order Complete page.

Once you have completed your purchase you will want to upload your image-file so I can begin work on your calendar. From the CCnow Order Complete page, scroll to the bottom and click on the Continue Shopping text-link to return to this web site. You will be given the option to either upload your image-file immediately or have a link to the Image-File Upload page sent to an email address of your choosing. When you are ready to upload your image-file, the HELP sections, further down, on Image-File Preparation & Image-File Uploading detail how to prepare and upload your image-file. The FILE UPLOAD button in the left column takes you to the Image File Upload page.

HERE'S WHAT I DO

I'll take your image-file and optimize it for Color, Contrast and Sharpness if needed. In addition, if you choose those options, I will select fonts for any headline or personal message submitted, and crop the image to fit the calendar demensions; create a frame or border, and color-match the image frame or border, headline or message text, and calendar to colors I capture from your digital artwork or photography.

    The "MAGIC-TOUCH" method:

If you select the Magic-Touch option, prepare to be surprised ! Each and every Personalized Calendar that uses the Magic-Touch method is a ONE-OF-A-KIND creation. There are no "off-the-shelf" templates used to create your cloth calendar frames or borders, and no predetermined list of fonts for use in any submitted headline text, guaranteeing that no two calendars will ever look the same. "Pure Inspiration", is what I use to design around your image, and the same applies to choosing a font type for your optional text message, if you choose to have one.

    The "PRINT-READY" method:

You are welcome, and even encouraged, to design your image layout yourself using your own graphics or photo-editing software. Use your own frame design or template, incorporate any text (or request that I insert the text) you want and upload your ready-to-print image-file. Along with the standard image optimization, I'll capture colors from your Print-Ready image-file and use them to color-match the 12 month calendar so that you'll have a truly unique & professional-looking cloth calendar that you will be proud to display on any wall !

IMAGE FILE PREPARATION

Image requirements, specifications and instructions on how to upload your image file can be found in the Image File Uploading HELP section further below, as well as on the Image File Upload page.

HERE'S WHAT YOU DO

Create your *PRINT-READY or *MAGIC-TOUCH artwork, photo or image file, and submit it in JPG (.jpg, .jpeg) format using my Image File Upload form.

Become familiar with your digital camera or scanner, so that you will be comfortable and confident when using it. Per your Instruction Manual, adjust your device to a high quality setting. The rule of thumb is "Garbage in, Garbage out", so the higher the better. If needed you can scale the image down on your computer, prior to uploading it to my server. On the other hand though, if the capture does not have sufficient quality, it cannot be further modified to increase it's quality. I strongly suggest that you save your original image-file as captured by your device, and make a copy that you can further modify for uploading, if necessary. This way if something goes awry, you still have the original image-file from which you can make another copy. Rename the image-file you plan to upload with your CCNow order number as all or part of the filename. Ideally an example would be your name followed by your CCnow order number, such as: "jdoe222-22-2222"

PRINT-READY images can be cropped on request by selecting the appropriate option in your Shopping Cart. All PRINT-READY image-files are optimized for color, sharpness and contrast/brightness, if needed, to improve the finished calendar print.

MAGIC-TOUCH is the image-file option for those who want me to customize their image-file. Just select from a list of custom image options available in the Shopping Cart, come back and upload your image-file, and let me create your borders and/or add your headline or text for a one-of-a-kind calendar you can be proud of. Either way I'll optimize your image for color, contrast and sharpness, if needed, to help improve the finished print on your calendar.

The Customer Gallery is a good place to see what I have done with other customer's image-files for their calendars. You can get an idea of what to expect. Examples for both Print-Ready & Magic-Touch calendars in the Gallery detail the image options that were selected by the customer when placing their order.

IMAGE FILE UPLOADING

*IMPORTANT - You must complete your calendar purchase in order to upload your image-file. Please make a note of your CCNow Order Number when you have completed your CCNow Checkout. You will need to copy it to the Image File Upload form when you upload your image-file for processing.


The FILE UPLOAD button in the left column takes you to the Image File Upload form.

Please do not submit your image-file(s) by email. This could create a bottle-neck on my system, and possibly delay your order. There is also the chance of image-file corruption, which would likely make your image(s) unsuitable for satisfactory reproduction. In addition, my Image File Upload form insures that your image-file is correctly matched to your CCNow Invoice order number using the information you provide when filling out the Image File Upload form.

DIGITAL ARTWORK OR PHOTOGRAPHS

There are many brands & models of digital cameras & scanners on the market today, and the image quality of the newest ones are more than ample for enlargement. With a variety of settings, and each brand having different software, it is beyond my purview to know them all. What I have attempted to describe here is a range of parameters I require in order to create a cloth calendar that you will enjoy showing in your home or office, school or church. Wherever you want... The following are some general guidelines that you should use in preparing your image-file for upload.

To begin with it has been my experience that it is always a good idea to...

SAVE YOUR ORIGINAL IMAGE-FILE AS CAPTURED & RENAME A COPY FOR PREPARATION & UPLOAD

Your Upload-Ready digital artwork or photo should be at least 800 x 600 pixels & 200 dpi resolution when they are uploaded to my image server. An optimal image-file's weight is around 1Mb (1000Kb), but you can safely upload image-files up to around 2.5Mb (2500Kb) before the server rejects the file for being too heavy. Image-files with lower weights need to have a higher resolution, while heavier files can be resampled to lower resolutions. I suggest that image-files that are less than 2Mb (2000Kb) should have a resolution of at least 150 dpi. Capturing your original image at higher resolution qualities should give you the flexibility you need to adequately optimize your image-file for uploading.

If you prefer to work with "inches" instead of "pixils", the finished print of your image-file on your calendar will be approximately 13.5" across by 10.25" tall (Landscape mode/orientation) including any border or framing that you opted for. That is over a size larger than an 8" x 10" photograph, so keep that in mind when you scan or digitally capture your image and adjust the capture-quality settings. The Upload-Ready image size specification previously mentioned of 800 x 600 pixils at around 200 dpi should print close to the size of a 4" x 6" or 5" x 7" photograph. So you can see why quality is important. It allows me to do my job better and send you a wall-hanging cloth calendar that you will be satisfied with. To my mind the resolution is the make or break factor since it determines how much detail is initially captured.

And as always, if you have a question about something I have not covered, or have not covered adequately or clearly, please me and I'll try to provide you with the information you are seeking.




"As always, it looks great! These were snapshots of my nephews, taken at my wedding this summer. I know my parents will love their calendar this year! It will be one they will treasure! Thanks for all of your help!"          --- D. Johnson

The year is over, but you still want to display your calendar because you like the image. Well, go ahead and leave it up... OR here's an idea: Fold the calendar so that you only see the top image portion. Use pins to hold it in place, or use a needle and thread to secure it however you want. Use your iron to crease the fold, taking care not to let the iron touch the printed portion.
