  1. The trash calendar seems unique..but i am wondering the cost to print it..i think the short run will be very expensive considering the size,type etc..

  2. I like the designs, you are very creative but I hope there are more space to allow us to jot down important events or write a to do list. I’ve been using Lang calendars because I like the amazing artwork and the functionality.
