WE SOLVE A PROBLEM

Digital calendars are great, yet 78% of families with teenage children STILL use a paper calendar to keep track of activities. Our QR Calendars give parents what they want and need - a printed calendar with 24-hour instant access to your school's digital itinerary. 

HOW DO WE DO IT?

By combining tech with tradition we connect parents with your school instantly. Special dates (confirmed before publishing) are printed in your QR calendar, while your school's online calendar is instantly accessible via the QR code on every page. We remind parents on the 1st of every month, to scan the QR and check for calendar updates, which they can manually add to the printed QR calendar if necessary.

IT'S GREAT PR

Your bespoke calendar is custom-designed by professionals, to make your school look great while promoting you to families every day throughout the year! You're solving a problem for families and making their lives a little easier. Whether it's a Christmas gift to your parents or a fundraiser for your school, your QR calendar will showcase your school's commitment to sustainability and the environment, which is crucial in society today. 

ECO FRIENDLY

Thankfully, most European paper is now sourced from sustainable forests, but we take it a step further. We use only top-quality recycled card without laminate or gloss, ensuring our calendars are 100% recyclable, biodegradable, and compostable. You can't get any greener!
If your QR Calendar is for fundraising purposes, we encourage schools to set up a pre-order payment system so parents can pay for their calendars in advance. This Zero-Waste approach allows us to print only what is needed, minimizing unnecessary waste.

OPTIONAL QR ADVERTISING

If your QR Calendar is for fundraising purposes, you can opt to include either 2 or 4 QR advertising spaces on each calendar page (24 or 48 adverts total per calendar) as an additional source of revenue for your school. Many parents will be eager to promote their businesses to your school community. 

PAPER Vs DIGITAL CALENDARS

78% of families with school-going children still use a paper calendar daily, and research indicates that paper calendars are more favourable than digital calendars, in a family dynamic. Paper calendar sales are increasing with an estimated 3.52% CAGR forecast for 2031. Columbia University (2022) research indicates that paper calendars increase productivity, while studies from the Society for Consumer Psychology (2022) indicate that paper calendars 'positively influence everyday planning and plan fulfilment'. Paper calendars are here to stay. As such, they are a proven, cost-effective marketing tool, providing year-long advertising opportunities and increased brand exposure.

Q & A

Why should we get calendars printed when we have a free digital calendar available to our parents?

Research indicates 78% of parents still purchase a printed calendar to track their children’s activities. We see this as an opportunity to promote your school and to provide parents with a 24/7 connection to your school’s digital calendar that they can’t get anywhere else. 

Are QR Calendars an easy way to raise funds?

Fundraising is difficult unless you are selling something with a demand. 78% of parents purchase printed calendars annually. We expect 60-78% of your school’s households to invest in a QRCalendar, especially with advance notice and pre-payment via your school’s system.

 

Do you have a minimum order quantity?

Our minimum order is 150 calendars. If your QR Calendar is for fundraising purposes and you neglect to meet the minimum requirement, you will be required to cover the cost of the shortfall. QRCalendars are recommended for schools with at least 250 unique households to maximize fundraising opportunities.

 

How does the QRCalendar work and what benefits does it offer our school community?

QRCalendars enhance communication and keep parents informed and connected to your school’s online calendar via a scalable QR printed on each page. They are among the most eco-friendly printed calendars in the world, aligning with the Department of Education's sustainability goals.

 

What customisation options are available for the calendar?

Each calendar is bespoke, reflecting your school’s unique character. You provide us with images for each month, and content for the covers. You can have a simple 1 image per month design, or if you’d like multiple photos on some pages, we have a variety of layout design options to choose from. Give us a shout on 01 2840505 to discuss the best options for your school.

What are the costs involved?

There is an initial setup deposit of €500, with full payment due upon approval of your final design proof. Our price list can be downloaded HERE. Costs are calculated based on economies of scale.

If your QR Calendar is for fundraising purposes, this deposit will be deducted from our share of future sales. We only get paid after your parents have preordered and paid you for their calendars. You retain 32% - 50% profit per calendar, depending on the quantities ordered. You can also raise funds through QR adverts and retain 100% of these profits for your school!

 

SPECIAL OFFER: Contact us before JULY 1ST 2024, and we'll waive our €500 setup deposit!
