About our Calendars

 

What Is It?

Our calendars are customisable, chocolate-filled countdown calendars for any occasion you wish.


How big are your calendars?

Our calendars are approximately 12"x18"x1".


When Will you ship my order and when will it arrive?

We ship all orders so that your calendar arrives 3-7 days before the first day of countdown. As our calendars have 31 days, that equals to 34-38 days before the event.

(Example: If your event was on July 15th, we would send your calendar so that it arrived between June 4 and June 11th.)


When do you make the calendars?

We prepare and package your calendars no more than 72 hours before shipment. 


What kind of pictures can I put on my calendar?

Short answer:

Just about any photo, that you have a digital copy of, and that you own the copyright to, provided that the image follows our acceptable photo policy. Our calendars will work in both landscape (wide) and portrait (tall) modes.

Longer answer: 

Artwork for (or pictures of) an event, person(s), thing(s), and/or place, that you either, hold the copyright to, and/or have legal ability to extend us the permission to reproduce the image. (i.e.: Pictures of family/friends or photos of places and events where the primary subject is of your family and/or friends are almost always accepted.)

If you are a business, nonprofit, or an event organizer and would like to use images/logos in your calendar you must have the legal ability to extend us the permission to reproduce the artwork for you in this manner. Further questions may be directed to bizsupport@qboncalendars.com.

Examples of acceptable photos:

 A family photo. (Only if not for sale or redistribution as it contains a themepark icon and logos on both shirts.)

What is the preferred format for submitting my photos? Do they need to be a certain size or Shape?

We accept photos saved as jpeg/jpg, png, or bmp. (The top 3 most common formats.) If you're not sure about what format your pictures are saved in, then they are probably in one of those 3. If not, a simple Google search could help. We do not accept non-photo files such as pdf, doc, zip, etc.

If you are ordering over 10 calendars, we can arrange other file formats, if needed, for better quality or accuracy.

While we can accept any size/resolution, we recommend at least an 8MP (megapixel) image for best results. The resolution we use is 2400x3600 for portrait images and 3600x2400 for landscape. (approx. 8.6MP)

Note: We use a 3:2 (landscape) or 2:3 (portrait) aspect ratio. All photos not in that ratio will be cropped to fit within that shape. 

If your photos do not fit these format guidelines, you can convert them with photo editor software or with one of many free online tools. (i.e.: PhotoShop Express or Ploarr)

Always make sure you photo fits our Acceptable Photo Policy.

 

About our Chocolate

 

Does your chocolate contain GMO's?

We've found the best chocolate supplier out there for our level of commerce, and they offer certified non-GMO chocolate. All their chocolate is non-GMO and we don't use emulsifiers, preservatives, or coloring, which means our end product is also non-GMO.

More Info ->


Is your Chocolate Gluten Free?

Our supplier claims zero gluten in their product. However, we will not label our candy “gluten free”, because contamination with gluten is always possible when candy is batch processed in large facilities.

If gluten is only a minor problem for you, our chocolate candies should be a guilt free treat but, if you suffer with celiac disease, we will not recommend our candy as we don’t process the cocoa beans ourselves, but buy couture chocolate for final preparation.


Does your chocolate contain LACTOSE?

We do not claim our chocolate to be lactose free. However, we use cocoa butter, not cream, in our candy. So as long as you stick to dark or white chocolate, you should be safe from any discomfort that comes to those of us who are not friendly with milk products. If you are truly allergic to dairy, don’t risk it.


What about Nuts and other allergens? 

We don’t use nuts, but cannot promise there will never be any cross contamination. 

There are many other food related issues out there. With cross contamination always possible, as well as the fact that we buy-in our chocolate for preparation, we cannot, nor will not, guarantee any of our products to be 100% food allergens safe.

More info on allergens can be found here.

 

Acceptable Photo Policy

 

Photos of your family at a famous landmark or favorite location, school mascots, or vacation snapshots are all great subjects for your own custom calendar. If your calendar is for a fundraiser or redistribution or sale, some other rules will likely apply.** Regardless of use, the following guidelines  apply.

Generally Acceptable*

  • images taken by you
  • family photos
  • your own artwork
  • pictures of your pets

Public Domain Images are also allowed.

*Assuming you hold the copyright to and/or are allowed to duplicate.

Your photo will likely be flagged if it includes the following.

  • nudity/pornography
  • derogatory language or imagery
  • illegal activities or substances
  • artwork/logos that you don't have permission to use
  • "do not duplicate" is written across the image or the image bears any watermark 
  • hate speech/imagery (Some symbols/logos found at The Anti Defamation League's online database or listed with the Southern Poverty Law Center as hate symbols may fall within these exclusions depending on usage.)

*All images are vetted for quality/content and may be deemed unusable at our discretion. We reserve the right to exclude any image whatsoever for any reason.

^Please double check that you are allowed to reproduce the image before submitting amusement park ride photos or any professionally taken photos such as those taken by a wedding photographer or a theme park photo service. Many professional photo services hold the copyright on these images and will often reserve the duplication rights for themselves.

**Calendars intended for resale or distribution, including not-for profit fundraising, may not include any image, even as background or incidentally included, for which commercial use would not be allowed without purchasing distribution rights or paying user fees. This would include photos depicting licensed character costumes or theme park icons, photos of artwork other than your own, trademarked products such as Coca-cola, or commercial photos (even if you are the subject) for which you do not control the copyright.
