Here's a stylish and minimal way to class-up your wall calendar. A great alternative to a custom frame. The 25" rails work for our 25" x 36" calendars - the "Color Choice" line. This will *not* work for our standard Sunday First & Monday First calendars, as they are 27" x 39".
Choose 2 or 4 Bulldog Clips
Black bulldog clips are a simple and stylish way to hang your calendar. And, unlike poster strips, they can be re-used year after year.
The mouth of the clip is 2" wide.
Black thumbtacks are included for hanging the clips on the wall. The black color blends seamlessly with clips.
HOW TO INSTALL
1. Decide how far apart you want your clips (I suggest 2-4" from the ends).
2. Using a straight edge and a level, mark two dots on the wall the correct distance apart.
3. Now attach your clips to the wall: put a thumbtack through the hole in the clip, hold the thumbtack in place with your thumb, and press the tack into the dot. If thumbtacks wont work on your wall try T-pins or tiny nails.
4. Now, with your clips in place, have a friend open a clip for you while you slide the calendar into it's grasp. Repeat with the other clip. Once the calendar is hanging, you can adjust the clips as necessary.
5. If necessary, you can attach another set of clips at the bottom of the calendar to anchor it more firmly to the wall.
Expo Fine Point markers are the industry standard for Dry Erase.
Includes four colors: black, red, blue & green.
The thing I don't like about them is the point is too big - you can't fit as much stuff in a box. I've searched alllllll over for an ultra fine point dry erase marker and they don't seem to exist.
BUT I did learn a cool trick! You can actually erase permanent ink if you first cover it with dry erase ink. So you can use Sharpie ultra fine point markers, then cover them with these markers to erase! Pretty cool.
One order includes 4 Poster Strips (one for each corner)
Command Poster Strips are the best way to stick your calendar to the wall without making holes. They are a strong adhesive that holds the paper and the wall well, but they leave no residue when you take them off a year later. Just pull straight down on the foam circular tab, the strip will stretch & remove harmlessly from the wall. Not as cool as the bulldog clips, but still a good option!
