While it seems like the world is becoming more digital, many people still prefer living in an analogue world. And while some may like to have their calendar or planner live on their device, people still love paper calendars. In fact, in 2016, the sales of appointment books, planners and decorative calendars increased by 8 to 10 percent making them great corporate gifts for clients or anyone else on your list.
The approaching new year marks a timely occasion to send an updated promotional calendar or planner featuring your brand. According to the Advertising Specialty Institute®, consumers will usually hold on to a promotional calendar for at least 12 months (PDF), putting your brand front and centre for the next 365 days.
