2015 Calendars

A growing tradition


Hatteras, Tinton Falls, New Jersey


Hatteras first opened it's doors in 1983. It wasn't long after our inception that the founder and CEO Charlie Duerr started a tradition of printing desk calendars to distribute to clients and prospects. Our continued growth and evolvement is reflected in our production of our calendars. This year, we produced our calendars in 6 different formats to fit the needs of any modern office space. It is of great importance to us, that we produce 100% of our calendars in-house. The design process for the 2015 calendars began in June of 2014, with the idea of using vibrant colors while remaining true to our coastal roots. Scott Kerrigan's photography was the perfect match for our needs.


The complete Hatteras calendar collection consists of 6 different calendar formats, and one carrier. The carrier was designed to house our two most popular of the calendars, the 3-month hanging calendar, and our large desk calendar. In addition to these kits, we produced 1-month calendars considering the small spaces many cubicles offer. The calendar strips, the most accessible of all formats, were designed to adhere to the computer screen. The newest members to the calendar family are the 20" X 29” 3-month and full year calendar posters. The 20" X 29" posters were designed for a larger space such as conference rooms, or general office walls.

A combination of both digital and offset printing was utilized to complete the set of calendars. The calendar strips are digitally printed on 12 mil Styrene cover on the HP Indigo 7600. Due to the large size of the posters, they are printed on the HP Indigo 10000, which allows for the 20" x 29" sheet size. For the ease of writing, the desk calendars were bare of any special effects, and printed with the traditional 4 color process + a writeable satin aqueous coating. The 3-month hanging wall calendars were printed conventionally, and featured strike-through special effects on 8 out of 14 leaves as well as a metallic PMS touch plate. The strike-through effect is a result of layering spot dull varnish under an overall high gloss aqueous coating. When the coatings are dry, the areas with the spot dull varnish dries matte, creating a popping effect on the high gloss area. The strike-through effect can also be found on the carrier.
