I have noticed that our build-your-own calendars are extremely popular as gifts, so I’m adding another coupon for 20% off the purchase of 3 or more calendars! Use the following code:
Calendars are printed to order - pick and choose from over 50 popular images, or choose one of our pre-sorted collections. Must have at least 3 calendars in shopping cart to qualify.

If you have lots of shopping to do, you can use this next coupon for 15% off any order totaling over $50.00:
Type in either coupon code as applicable during checkout. The “big-kansha-2009″ coupon will only work with purchases totaling over $50, but the “kansha-2009″ coupon will work with any order. All 3 coupons are good until the end of this year.
There is still a lot of time left to shop if you are in the USA. International orders should be placed by tomorrow, December 1st. Check out our Holiday Shipping Chart here.
