Why do your products last for 16 months?
We often get asked why we produce 16-month diaries and calendars as some people consider the overlap a waste.
A 16-month system allows us to offer our customers a greater choice in when to start and end their current diaries and calendars. 16-month products can be used in line with both the academic year or the calendar year, depending on which suits your needs best.
Some customers prefer to run their calendar or diary through the school year (Sept to Sept), while others prefer the calendar year (Jan to Dec). Our 16-month products can be used either way, allowing you to decide when you want to move across to a new diary or calendar. There is also a longer cross-over period to transfer all of your information from one to the other and to prevent you from having to carry two diaries or to keep two calendars running on the wall. When using traditional calendars or diaries, there is often little space provided in November and December to record the dates and information you are given for the new year. However, if you have already swapped to the new version earlier in the year, this won't be a problem for you.
Another key advantage of this system is that it cuts waste, reduces transportation and assists us with giving you lots of clever features that we couldn't provide at this price point if we had to create two versions each year. Ordinarily, publishers have to throw away countless numbers of calendars and diaries every year, but we don't have to because of our clever design. We introduced a curated 12-month academic range of products following customer feedback and we also offer a 12-month calendar year range of diaries and calendars too however by keeping our core range of products 16-months, which combines both the academic and calendar year into one, we dramatically reduce our environmental impact, something that's very important to us, and allows us to reduce costs that we can then pass along to you.
What are the differences between an academic year and a calendar year diary?
Academic year diaries commence in August, whereas a calendar year product begins in January. Both run for 12 months.
There are many factors to consider when deciding whether an academic or a calendar year diary is the right choice for you. Traditionally, academic diaries are designed with students and teachers in mind. They offer a fresh start at the beginning of the school year and ensure important information regarding studies is stored in one central location.
Parents may also benefit using an academic diary too, documenting school events and key dates in a fresh planner at the start of the new term ensures nothing is forgotten throughout the year. Alternatively, you may have no connection to a school at all, and instead, be starting a new job, or even simply just fancy a clean slate to help you get organised for the latter end of the year and the busy Christmas season.

We are able to ship to most countries but from time-to-time some destinations are not possible. Please see our delivery charges page for an up to date list of overseas destinations we can ship to.
If your country is not listed in the drop down menu during the checkout process, please email or phone us to discuss your order.
What are your UK shipping options?
Express delivery is a 1-2 working day service (not available to all postcodes e.g. Highlands and Islands). These orders are treated as Priority orders by our despatch department. Express Delivery orders placed before 2pm on a business day will be dispatched that day for delivery with 1-2 working days. We are not able to offer this service to deliver on a Saturday, Sunday or Bank Holiday. Our Express Delivery service costs just £3.50 and are sent via DPD Local (Interlink) Couriers.
Our Express Delivery service is a signed for service, so someone will need to be in to accept the parcel. With the DPD Predict system, if you provide us with your mobile number DPD will send you a text to notify you of the 1 hour delivery time slot. You can contact DPD to arrange alternative delivery or amend it via their app.
Tracked Delivery Royal Mail provides a UK-wide Tracked Delivery service with online tracking. This service costs £2.95 and aims to deliver your order within 1-2 next working days but certain postcodes may take longer. These orders are treated as Priority by our despatch department. If you provide us with your mobile number, Royal Mail will send you a text on the day of delivery to notify you that it is out for delivery. They will also send you a text once it has been delivered. This service does not require a signature.
Further information on our Royal Mail deliveries: Once your item has left our office, if you have included your mobile number on your delivery information, Royal Mail will send you a text with details and a tracking number for your order. The level of tracking varies for the different services we use, from the detailed information on the Tracked Delivery orders to Proof of Delivery on smaller Free or Standard delivery items.
Royal Mail will attempt to deliver your parcel once. If you’re not in, they will leave you a card and take the parcel back to the sorting office. You will then need to call to arrange redelivery or to pick up the parcel yourself. Royal Mail will hold your parcel for 21 days. If your parcel is returned to us, we will ask you to pay the additional postage incurred to have your parcel sent out to you again plus any charges incurred to us as a result of Royal Mail returning the item to us.
What are your international shipping options?
All overseas orders are sent via Royal Mail’s Airmail service. This service takes approximately seven to ten working days from dispatch. The standard airmail service is an untraceable service which means unfortunately we cannot track the status of your order. We now provide an International Tracked service to some destinations (see list below) which we would recommend as it can be up to two days faster and provides a level of traceability. For some countries such as Italy or Australia, this service provides that added reassurance. When arriving at the checkout, if the Airmail Tracked service does not appear, then we are unable to provide this service to your country.
Please note that sometimes delivery may take longer - it is impossible for us to give a precise figure as services differ all over the world.
If you are outside the European Union, all orders will be sent with fares and itemised commercial invoices. This includes all relevant details for your own country’s customs authorities. The customer is responsible for any additional fares or duties levied by customs officials. We cannot alter the wording on this label to avoid the payment of charges.
Overseas Delivery Charges
European Union via Airmail - £3.50
Rest of the World via Airmail - £6.99
European Union Tracked - £5.99
Rest of the World Tracked - £9.99
